You Ain’t that Busy.

You Ain't That Busy

This graphic says it all.

Busy should be banned. It should be drowned with all the other negative words: bossy, arrogant, flakey. Because the truth is every person you meet is busy. They all have minds moving a million miles a minute, they all have their lives, their stressors, their obligations. Work meetings, events, drinks with an old friend, dinner with a husband, soccer games, Rangers games, books to read.

Weddings to plan.

And while right now I feel busy, I know one day I’ll be more busy in some new, dramatic way. It ebbs and flows, a season of overwhelming to-do lists now will one day lead to a season of rest.

But until then, I should face it. I ain’t that busy.

And I miss you. I do hope you are not that busy either!

Good Mood Monday

{A collection of sweet things and moments that filled my heart this week.}

Floral Crowns

+33 Years. In 33 years, I can only hope to have with Josh the relationship my parents have. God blessed many with their love, and continues to.

+Mother’s Day. There are so many mothers in our lives. Here is to hoping the each one had the most relaxing day possible (although, if you mothers are anything like mine, they spent the day pleasing their mothers, too).

Good Mood Monday

+Celebrations. Celebrating any and all things that come our way lately: birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, babies, church launches. All good things, all with a need to be joyous over.

+Bernath Bash Bachelorette. We did a little girls night in the city, filled with amazing friends, mini apple pies and lots of dancing. I could not have asked for better friends in this city to make me feel home.

+Bernath Bash Bachelor. Especially with Josh down in Low Country with all of the guys golfing, paint balling and what I’m sure turned into a few too many beers.

Good Mood Monday

+Sacrifices. My life is full right now. Filled with thank you note writing, timeline making, vendor confirming, song choosing tasks that take over the extra minutes. Work is requiring later evenings than normal, weekends are filled with additional work. And something must be sacrificed. Like this space, right here. Just a bit though, and not forever. While I’m not writing every day, know that I’m happy nonetheless, ready to provide you with slivers of good moods throughout the next few weeks.

+The Fault in Our Stars. Darn books taking up time, too. But it’s oh, so good. I can’t wait to cry in the end, which is soon. (I started it Friday.)

+Up next:All the Light We Cannot See. Have you read it?

+Sunshine. Because, hello spring.

Good Mood Monday

+Music.

Good Mood Monday   

+This DudeWe celebrated Josh’s birthday last week. While normally I would throw surprises and take him to long tasting menu dinners, this year we played it low-key, tried a few new restaurants and ate peanut butter cookies with friends.

+New York, this week. She really shined. From Thursday until today and looking forward over the next few days, New York is deciding it’s time to show off. It’s about time, old friend.

+New Vinyl. Parachutes vinyl, Yellow perfectly streamed, Coldplay on SNL.

Good Mood Monday

+Buck Hunt. Josh and friends have entered a buck hunting league, the arcade game where you shoot bucks (not doe’s!) and try to shot as many as possible. They put on camo hats and get rowdy at a bar. It’s really fun to watch and cheer on our team.

+Babysitting Darlings. 18 months is the best age. I don’t spend much time with 18 month old girls (see: Jace, Finn, Frey) so I was so excited to get to spend some time with a new little friend last week. She was silly, athletic and charming with the sweetest laugh. Made me miss my boys.

+The Campbell Apartment. The wedding this weekend took place at The Campbell Apartment, a unique lounge tucked away in Grand Central Terminal. The ceremony made everyone cry, the jazz made everyone dance and the space made everyone feel like they belonged at Gatsby’s mansion.

Good Mood Monday

+Practicing. I had the distinct pleasure of practicing my photography on the beautiful Christy this week. She needed head shots, I have a camera and the sun was all out, flaunting itself. So we spent the evening hair flipping and capturing her beautiful smile. And then we went to listen our good friend play an amazing set in the Lower East Side. (PS: go check out Clinton and plan on seeing him play on Saturday at Rockwood.)

Good Mood Monday

+Spring Flowers. I had a rough week last week, and Josh brought home flowers that are filling this apartment with the scent of a meadow. What a wonderful smell to walk into every evening.

+Google. And the fact that they now offer same day delivery in Manhattan. While this pushes our need for instant gratification, it is quite an accomplishment. You can read more about same delivery here.

+Music.

Sun Moon Stars

Just a quick note today, just to say happy birthday to the person in my life that supports me through everything, every day and every night. Who stands by me in faith, is my voice of reason through work struggles and listens to me vent about silliness. I’m so excited to marry you, Josh. You are my sun, my moon and all my stars. Happy birthday!

Good Mood Monday

+Mornings. Sometimes I hate everything about 7:00 am but lately there have been morning doves purring and sunlight on my face poking me to wake up for the day. It’s getting easier again; hibernation is ending,

+Gardens. Finding gardens in backs of coffee shops, sipping on macchiatos and chatting with friends about living in an apartment with a balcony, a view or even closet.

+Chai. Eating or drinking chai anything. (Seriously, chai scones.)

+Let me just get one. This transcends all aspects of life, wanting just one of something and then one of something else. I’m trying to stop wanting irrelevant things and filling my life with strong relationships instead.

Good Mood Monday

+Blooming. The trees are pink and green, set for another beautiful summer ahead.

+Old Friendships. Em in the city, catching up with one of the oldest friendships I have, meeting new friends and visiting street fairs.

Good Mood Monday

+April. Filled my heart. We celebrated Josh’s birthday with amazing restaurants and food all weekend long.

+Wedding Bands. They are officially in our hands and will be placed on our hands in just two short months. I love the simplicity of our bands, how they fit perfectly together.

+Stars. Because we are made of stars and stardust… I “want” this new tattoo.

Star Tattoo

+Music.

Happy Monday, darlings. Wishing you a relaxing week.
