this weekend, i've been able to savor the sweet scent of wood burning ovens, walking across crispy leaves, breathing in the fresh october air, and taking a moment to just be before a hectic november schedule swoops me up and away.
i had the pleasure of having tea with the lovely (and ever so inspiring) anna and rachael this weekend. there is something so unique about spending time with like-minded bloggers. i am so grateful for this supportive community and the boost it provides when you're feeling in an inspirational rut.
quite often, i go back and forth on how open to be in this space. it is so refreshing to read blogs that you relate to, that inspire you, and that make you feel like you're sitting across said blogger, sharing coffee and secrets. at times, i think sharing more would be liberating, but as a very private person, it's a constant tug.
between a hectic job, schedule and not feeling 100% as of late, creativity and inspiration have certainly fallen by the wayside. speaking with these wonderful and encouraging ladies gave me such a happiness boost. they made me realize that there are so many ways to get creative and feel that connection. i am so thankful for afternoons like this - where friends from different worlds come together, where you share fears and aspirations, where you can relate.
