what are you doing this weekend? + a quote i love.

happy friday and happy weekend!

i don't know about you, but the past several weeks have been super busy, and the next few weeks (including this weekend) are likely to be more of the same. it's all good busy, though: tons of projects and events and fun commitments that i'm glad to be part of. it's just...well, busy. 

but you know, i've been feeling happier as a result of it -- like i have more of a sense of purpose. i've actually been feeling this way since the end of january, but i think the springtime and everything that comes with it heightens those emotions. so i'm going to leave you today with this quote by virginia woolf -- one of my top three favorite writers and thinkers of all time -- because it sums up exactly how i feel. it's from the years.

"we're only just beginning, she thought, to understand, here and there. she hollowed her hands in her lap, just as rose had hollowed hers around her ears. she held her hands hollowed; she felt that she wanted to enclose the present moment; to make it stay; to fill it fuller and fuller, with the past, the present, and the future, until it shone, whole, bright, deep with understanding." 

have a happy weekend and a happy mother's day, and i'll see you  back here on monday.

  1. i love being busy if i'm busy doing things i love. it's better than being bored, right?

    Thought you'd be interested in entering my Jennifer Elizabeth fringe shimmy necklace giveaway! It is open to everyone.

  2. having a purpose definitely makes you feel better about things doesn't it - having something to get your teeth into and get passionate about just makes everything better!
