Just Life

TGIF | The Last One of 2018.

I don’t think it’s just me … this week – and these last few days of 2018 – is flying by. Hopefully the weekend will put me in a better frame of mind to welcome a new year, but now it’s Friday … and time for the last TGIF post of this year.

Thinking about my #makenine plans for 2019, with a focus on finishing works-in-progress, learning new skills, and using yarn and fabric I already have.

Grateful for time with my girls this week. Wednesday’s lunch was delightful (and we even found a nice person to take our photo), as was Mary Poppins Returns!

Inspired by our girl-talk on Tuesday and Wednesday to mix up a few of my tired routines. cooking. bookclubs. make up. perfume.

Fun … another week of watching the amaryllis grow … and thinking about the watching and waiting in the context of three One Little Words highlighted here – Grace (2013), Present (2015) and Light (2017).

Happy Friday, my friends – and cheers to this last weekend of 2018!
