grateful friday

show me you reyes
gonna keep on doing this...

i got stuck searching for a piece of art of foto for this post. because frankly i'm feeling a bit exhausted and ungrateful today. i tried to find one that embodied a different mati. light, laughing, funny faced.

i've stayed up every night till 2 or 3 this week. there is construction going on in the back. i'm wearing ear plugs! open studios is this weekend, at long last.

who do i want to be?

confident, relaxed and to quote arc from port 2 port- "throwing my cares to the wind".

i am grateful for earplugs.

i am grateful for a brown & green halter dress with hand stitched embrodiery and little loving details that kate bought me in exchange for her wedding invites. i have worn it to every subsequent (9?!) wedding and never tire of it!

i am grateful for having so many amazing people in my life.

i am grateful for the earrings bekah sent me from NYC H&M that i'm wearing in this photo.

i am grateful for H&M and i wish it was here now in SF... is it yet?

i am grateful for the minty burt's bees wax with tint that i'm wearing.

i am grateful for this blog community and the opportunity to share.

i am grateful for this ridiculously strong coffee.

ooh! Very glamorous!

I am grateful that it's time now for open studios. I can't wait to see what you all have done, and to have it over with!

I'm coming down tonight to hang stuff, right now I'm working on framing everything.

I am just catching up on your entries from this past week. So much inspiring goodies, and I wish I could jump in my car right now and come up for the Open Studio!
