I did a thing yesterday! Or rather I had a thing done to me. Thanks to @akronmomandkids, I learned of @altitudesocialhouse and booked a micro blading appointment with @artele.aesthetic 👁️ Basically it’s manual tattooing to fill in your eyebrows. 18 tiny needles on something similar to a LePen that she dips into pigment and strokes across your skin. Kaetlin’s description was correct it sounded like Velcro. The whole process took 2 hours and I go back for a perfecting session in 6 weeks then it lasts for 1-2 years. It will be interesting to see the process of healing, but love it so far! Anyone else noticing the older they get that your eyebrows are thinning? I immediately booked once I saw her sample photos of how natural it looks, way better than when I try to use the mascara type thing on my brows. Thanks, @artele.aesthetic 💗
These guys are proof that natures finds a way. I’ve watered them maybe once all season, too distracted with the perennial beds, but the big mother tree I guess gives them the right amount of shade/light and gracefully drips water to them (at least that’s how I’m imagining it goes). I was going to say that Nasturtium is my favorite for the season, but look at that gorgeous purple leaf plant. As usual, all plants from @grafgrowers, simply the best.
Help me choose! Our dining room needs more light (swipe to the second to last to see how it normally looks & the last one I lightened up so you can see wall color, etc. - ignore the messy table), and while I like the mint ceiling fan, now that we have A/C it’s unnecessary. Also if anyone wants the fan, hit me up 💡 COMMENT WITH YOU FAVE 1-5
So grateful for @hillaryoravec and @mclaughlin_bren and the entire The Learning Agenda consultant group. Never have I felt more valued in my work, and I truly enjoy every single colleague and their individual genius! And of course 🧀 by @waxedcrescent
Anyone else’s phone full of screenshots from other people’s IG stories? I love doing that, but it’s rare that I ever go back to them, but somehow the action of hitting two buttons at once helps me remember it, and may be the jumping off point way down the road for some random new project. @jordanferney is one of my faves to follow for her love of pattern mixes. Man, I love to set a table. I need a whole closet devoted to table textiles 💡 ah! sounds like a great next project!
Peas = Spring. 🪀 Compliments to @chefvinniecimino and his team at @cordeliacle for another wonderful experience. They take great care and even marked on the menu what is safe for my stupid allergies. #peatoast
I haven’t made a post since November. For the past 3 years, every 3 posts have been re: social justice, or lack thereof, esp. because #blacklivesmatter. What this square was going to be was: as we landed in Florida for the month of December, I learned of the details of the bill that could cause our marriage to no longer be recognized, and to be in the state of a man that supports that insanity weighed heavily on me, and finding the right words to express that has been nearly impossible. I won’t go into my feelings here, they are mine, and I’m sure obvious. But what I will say is that these months have been very up and very very down. Focusing on the present has helped me pull through and cherish the little things, like this moment. And I look forward to relishing each new moment, and thanks to lots of new therapy, with a lot less baggage. Onward, happily…
🎉 This little nugget is 9 today 🎉 Happy Birthday #themightyquinn 🥳 Cheers to 9 years of cowering in the corner as your Dad cheers on the @cavs; the cutest darn puppy; through COVID hair; and the resulting awful trip the groomers; being bigger than your best friend for a couple of months; and always snuggling with her; and your grandma; and being so stinking cute that we love you and your anxious antics more each day. My buddy 💗
It’s been quite a past week-ish. I’ve been doing lots of reflecting too, as the curveballs came at me. This photo while the reason for its gathering is so sad, makes me also so very happy. My Aunt Layla, that lives in New Orleans; and cousins Bert and Dan, whom I can never seem to keep track of; are all in Ireland together and dressed up to make their sister/mom/my aunt smile. And that effect warms me here in the states, too…plus it makes me chuckle and remember where my wackily creative side comes from.
