Good morning, my sweet peas. I want to start off this morning on a bit of a somber note. Fridays here are typically a place of happy and gratitude, but the news of Anthony Bourdain’s death hurts my heart something fierce. He is a man I admired, slightly envied, and had a massive crush on. His zest and love of life always made me feel inspired to travel the world, and I’m sad his spirit no longer lives with us in the physical world. That, coupled with the news of Kate Spade’s suicide earlier this week (and the increase of suicides in nearly every state of the country), means it’s more important than ever to reach out in times of need. Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and it is a free and confidential support network for anyone in distress.
Let’s dive in today’s gratitude <3
I’ll be in the city all day for a meeting with my coworkers, so may be slow to reciprocate, but if this is your first time here—WELCOME! Each Friday I link up with Lindsay, Beth, and the friendly peeps in our Peaceful Posse Facebook group. Let’s have a look at some things that made me unbelievably happy this week!
Getting to celebrate my friend at her bridal shower and catching up with an old coworker
Quiet morning walks with the pup
The Last OG—this show makes me so happy
Finding out today—EEPPPP!!—if our offer on a home was accepted. Two nights ago we went to see a house and I fell truly, madly, and very deeply in love with it. I didn’t want to get my hopes up in case Bryan didn’t feel the same way, but it turns out he loved it as much as I did and now I’ll be hyperventilating until we hear back from the realtor
A wonderful and supportive and amazing circle of friends
Finding an old mix CD and popping it into the CD player in my car. Let’s bring back tapes!
Alone time at the gym and laughing at the guy who was yelling into his cell phone while on a treadmill with the girl working out next to me
Let me know what you are grateful for in the comments below, and hope everyone has a great weekend ahead! XOXO
