the project 30 q & a this week

a five-year old called me fat

I literally cannot put down “Gone Girl

my  other new book “Why We Write”

this quote – “inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”- Pable Picasso

oh and this quote – “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”- Socrates

What am I grateful for this week?

My mom-mom (grandmother). SO happy she’s on the mend after being in the hospital for the last week

sweet Brian for surprising me with a compilation CD of songs he thinks could be contenders for our first dance at our wedding. Probably the most romantic thing ever

I am so grateful for Rachel of One Part Gypsy for taking our engagement photos. I honestly didn’t know I could love pictures more.

My home. It’s always filled with light and I feel so lucky it’s my space to live and work in

recently my life has been filled with unexpectedly lovely surprises, especially regarding work. I love it when this happens. So much better than a string of unexpected shitty events, huh?

What surprised me this week?

I had my first therapy session after many many many years. I expected it to be hard to pull out of my shell but instead I was SOOOO CHATTY. Couldn’t shut me up.
