Hello friends … and Hello May!
I so appreciated all the wonderful comments y’all shared on my last post. Thank you!
I’m approaching this new month with a “saving my life” mindset and these TGIF posts are one of my favorite ways to frame a list.
Three … days into MeMadeMay. I’ve been watching this parade of me-mades on Instagram for several years … and now that I have a few hand sewn items to mix in with the hand knits, I’m ready to play. My “rules” are really loose, but I’d like to wear something me-made for all 31 days and post a photo of my outfit on Instagram. That means I’ll need to actually get showered and dressed for all 31 days (since so far, my me-made wardrobe does not include PJ’s, underwear or workout wear). I also need to sew a few more things. …and get more intentional about my outfits and a lot better at selfie’s!
Growing … back into my curls. Since last October, when I made the decision to Go Gray, I’ve been keeping my hair super short. Now I miss my curls. I don’t miss all the time I spent taming them, so I’m going to take this growing process slowly and just see how it goes. My next haircut isn’t until mid-June (but another great thing about “just a haircut” is that my hairdresser can fit me in if I change my mind!)
Investigating … contemplative practices. exploring, really, with practice, but TGIF doesn’t have an E or a P. Together with my Friday morning group and The Universal Christ, I’m learning a lot.
Fun … and family. Our annual get-together is Memorial Day weekend. My mom has rented a huge (10 bedrooms!) house overlooking Lake Lanier for the week. The whole crew will be there … even Sara! We’ve started menu planning – we agree up-front what we’ll eat and try to make equitable meal-prep assignments. Feeding 12 adults and 2 kids takes some work … but we try for “fun”, too. and of course with the right company, everything is better.
Cheers to another month with five of my favorite days! Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
