Starred this Week

This month is turning out to be just as crazy as I predicted– not in a bad way, but between moving and getting things ready for a bridal shower tomorrow, I haven’t had time for much else other than work. At least I’ll have a lot to share once I can sit down and put it on the blog, right?


We’ve got a fun weekend ahead with the shower and hanging out with the out of town company that will be coming in to attend. Any free time we have needs to be spent gathering some necessities that we’ve neglected… pretty sure our new neighbors would appreciate it if we got some window treatments ASAP. What do you have going on this weekend?

I never thought about using my planner this way before.

A really interesting essay on negativity online.

I felt like I really got into my groove this week for the first time in a long time, which is always a good thing. Here’s to many more productive days as we get closer to spring!


Tonight Brian and I are partaking in our annual Valentine’s Day tradition and going out to dinner. It looks like it’s going to kick off a fun long weekend, as we’ve got a birthday celebration and a bridal shower to attend this weekend as well. What are your plans for the weekend?

Loved this video on aging.

A nice way to look at Winter, and what’s it really for.

If I had to pick three themes from these pictures, they would be snow, Griffin, and lettering. Sounds about right. I’m cursing winter on a daily basis, but looking at these photos helps remind me that there’s some good wrapped into the bitter cold and lack of sunlight.


Sometimes these posts are more challenging than they used to be because I don’t always read blogs at the same rate that I used to. I’ve actually been pretty good at keeping up with my Feedly lately, so I had fun putting together a list of my favorite links from the last few weeks!

Loving this shift in direction.

Are you still following the rules?

I can totally relate sometimes.

You are what your share.

Nodded along to this post about determining what’s holding you back.

Jumped into January.

Shared a calm and cozy moodboard.

I was interviewed over on Coined Life.

Shared something I wish I knew when I started my blog.

I got to be part of this tips post all about delighting your customers on Olyvia.

I talked about what I’m focusing on in the new year.

I woke up yesterday feeling… unprepared. Anyone else? I feel like the new year snuck up on me a little bit. I’ve been hoarding information about goal setting and gearing up for change and new habits, but I have yet to put most of it into action. So I’m trying to look at this month as just one giant transition period for developing good habits and getting things in gear. How about you?


This weekend I’m going to spend some quality time feeling more prepared, and some of that starts with the links below. What are you up to this weekend?

This year in review post gave me a lot to think about.

Love this question: “what is making me feel resentful?

A great post on what to consider when setting goals.

Definitely going to try this end of year ritual over the next couple of days.

More reading is definitely on my list of things I want to do in 2015, and this list seems like a great place to start.
