I recently attended a Boston Bloggers event that was all about authenticity and creativity and the holidays and so much more. It left me thinking about how I define and refine my own creativity. Sometimes it’s in the form of a scarf (above). Other times it’s in what I’m writing. No matter what it is, I think it’s important to define or break habits that help build or destroy creativity. Here’s some links to back up what I’m feeling this week.
Happy Halloween you guys. I’m making it a Halloween that’s all about treats. No tricks. And my treat for you this Friday are these four lovely ladies. Four of my “blogging friends” turned real life friends—no quotes needed.
So, here’s a bit about each and a little treat you can expect when you go visit their blogs. Which you should because, Friday.
Alex of Literally Everything has a great take on life, Boston and her cute pup Toby. Check out her post defining family. It’s a subject I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. And I love what Alex has to say about it.
Elizabeth Crane Swartz has the perfect free font download (it’s in the sidebar) for all your cozy winter typography needs. Get it for free. It’s no trick. See, all treats today. (Bonus, check out her beautiful necklaces and snag an early Christmas gift.)
Another day, another week, another handful of links for you guys. The weekends here have become pretty lazy as we descend deeper into fall. But after rainy weeks, I’ll take these sunny weekend days so we can get in a few more evenings of grilling out.
I’ve been doing lots of writing over the past week. Lots of writing about things that have happened. Things I’m thinking. Things I’m feeling. Where this blog is going. Where I’m going. Some will be easier to share than others. But for today. As we finally descend into a chilly fall here in Boston, just some links. enjoy.
A really slow Sunday here as I’m just now getting around to sharing my links from the week. In reality. It’s anything but slow. We’ve installed a car seat, picked up our CSA and now, football. But, for halftime…
Remember a few weeks ago when I was trying to figure out how to keep up with all the reading I want to be doing? Well, now you know all the reading includes throwing in a baby book or two, which makes it even more difficult to get to the “just for fun” reading.
One of the things I’ve been trying to do the past few months is get in a daily walk. For a while walking and listening to music was fine. But a couple weeks in, I was getting bored with the same songs, same route, same, same, same.
And then I remember someone telling me they listened to the Jess Lively podcast while at the gym. So, I thought I’d give it a chance. And I liked it.
I liked it so much I had caught up on all the episodes and needed something else to listen to.
Well, this spiraled into a iTunes search, a web search and a lot of downloading podcasts to my phone.
For this installment of Friday links, I’m giving you all the links that I’ve been saving to cook this May. I haven’t gotten around to all of them, but they are saved and they will happen. (fingers crossed!)
