she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. My daughter, who is living in Seattle while she is in school, sends me a favorite quote of hers and I try to pair it with a photograph I've taken. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result.


"A pedestal is as much a prison as any small, confined space." –Gloria Steinem

I try not to blog on the weekends, don't post or read them. Sometimes I wonder what fun posts I'm missing on all your blogs but totally focused time with my husband for 2 days is worth it. Hope you all can unplug and catch your breath.  Have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday!

You might have noticed I've been unplugged for about three weeks now. I just needed to read more and push the pause button. That picture of me eating breakfast is entirely mortifying. Yikes! Love the quote btw, so true.
Best,

This truly is a fabulous feature.

Sorry todays letter infuriated you... he was an awful man indeed which is part of the reason I found the sincerity of the letter to be so intriguing.

Have a lovely time with your husband!
