the world’s longest week linky

– Posted in: featured


It’s been a difficult week. I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling the weight of the world’s problems lately and wondering how we fix and glue back together what’s broken. I’m grateful for the acts of love and kindness that I see happening and I’m reminded that there are beacons of hope even on the darkest days.

And now, on to this week’s grateful list. Tell me, what makes yours?

  • I’ve always been a believer in signs, even though I know they can be difficult to distinguish. For the past few days, I’ve seen pairs of animals floating around me—on Tuesday, two butterflies. Wednesday, two dancing squirrels. This morning, two tiny, adorable birdies. I don’t know what this means, but it’s a nice symbol anyhow
  • New music! In the past week, I’ve purchased new tunes from the Lumineers, Michael Franti, Mumford and Sons, and Jon Bellion.
  • Rooftops in NYC and wine and good friends and laughter
  • Asking nicely and receiving generously. I realized recently that I don’t have a good strapless bra for this wedding I’ll be attending in July and so I contacted a company I’d heard great things about. Not only has Upbra sent me a bra to review, they’ve also agreed to participate in a giveaway and will offer my readers a discount code—stay tuned!
  • This story. <3 <3 <3

Hope you have a sweet weekend, dear friends, and happy Father’s Day to the poppas out there.

A good bra is always important! That’s on my to do list for Monday.
I’m thrilled this week is over, and I will be on a NYC rooftop myself!

I love the Lumineers, they have such a good, summery, happy sound to them.

Thank you for sharing that Jet Blue article. Wow, in tears. That’s so touching. I just don’t have words….. so incredibly special.

Dammit, why is there so much hatred in this world?!

Sending love, light and happiness to you, B and Buster. XOXOX

Don’t ask, don’t get 🙂 Good snag on the strapless bra! Animals in two’s? That sounds like a sweet sign. The world is falling apart and I guess we have to glue it back together with love. Have a great weekend, Charlotte!

For me, I got some learning done this week and got to go to the zoo to chill on a friday afternoon 🙂

Sorry things have been tough. Did you get a new Lumineers’ album? Is it good? (I have one of their earlier ones and like it more than I thought I would.)

Oh, that JetBlue story brought tears to my eyes. The world needs more stories like this.

I’m hoping this week is better for you! Love that you realize the power of asking- it can get you great places. Take care of you.
