“We do not remember days, we remember moments.” -Cesare Pavese

tea with baby bump

One of the highlights of my week (technically last week) was taking Diane to a [VERY] belated birthday lunch at our favorite tearoom. Would you look at that adorable baby bump!? I had to make sure to get it in our selfie!

So, let’s see. What the heck did we do this week? It feels like so much and nothing at all, simultaneously. Ever have weeks like that?

Kathryn is away at the beach again, but this time with her dad.

I’ve been reading and loving The Best Yes. I borrowed it from the library but it’s SO GOOD I’m going to have to buy my own copy to own and love and return to repeatedly.

My little hydrangea, a birthday gift a few years ago from my cousin-friend Jonnia, is bedecked with lovely blue blossoms.

Books, tea, flowers: a few of my favorite things!

The two BIGGEST highlights of my week:

I was chosen as part of the Fair Trade Friday blogging team!!!
I’m thrilled because this organization is one I’m happy to support and delighted to promote. In case you’re not familiar with it, Fair Trade Friday is an avenue for women to empower women, tackling poverty through job opportunities and empowerment rather than enablement. Fair Trade Friday artisans make absolutely beautiful products and 100% of proceeds goes to support these artisans. Good stuff!

I did a chin-up!!! {Here’s proof!}
This was huge for me because it was one of my life goals that, until just a few months ago, always felt like something I’d never accomplish. I have a long way to go in form, but still, I did it!
