The blackberries are already ripening, and it was the most incredible morning outside. Taking my coffee in my mug from @_sunflower.studio_ was imperative! I picked it up from Livia yesterday, and we briefly chatted about sustainable living and climate change. There are so many artisans and creatives all around us! I would love to challenge you to consider supporting them for the sake of small business, but also for the sake of the planet. My appetite for more tends to be insatiable. Insatiability is in the fabric of my makeup. But I am trying so hard to lean into simplicity- to replace things only when they are broken, to mend what I can, and to have fewer things that are not only more beautiful, but leave less of a footprint on the earth. I know that my choices won’t move the needle much, but damn it I’m still convinced to try, even if it is simply so I can sleep better at night and have lovely things around me by people I admire. ♻️✨
Well, we’re exhausted from hotel sleep and a 5:15 wake up call, but you’d never know based on the energy this girl and her teammates just displayed on the dance floor! Taking home a Diamond award for their tap routine, a Ruby for their jazz routine, and third highest score overall for their division in tap, they also displayed class, showmanship, and respect in their first National competition as teammates. And there’s no one else we’d rather lose sleep and miss work on a Monday for 😉 Great work, kids!
