Coffee Break: Out like a lamb


Hard to believe that April is upon us already. I leave next week for my first return trip to NH! I’ll be there for several weeks. Then, R.T. is driving across the country with me so that I’ll have my trusty Honda Civic with me here in Portland. Oh, April. I’m so excited for what you have in store.

Here are a few things I’ve enjoyed around the web since our last coffee break together:

I so relate to this. To my core. “I had been accepting no as an answer in so many areas of my life and whittling down my vibrancy.” Like Mara wrote it for me.

I’ve been obsessed with Apartment Therapy lately. I love all the eye candy and brilliant ideas, but I’ve also been digging the love-your-life posts, like 10 Simple Things to Make you Happier at Home and How to Live Alone Without Feeling Lonely.

CSS puns – a fun mashup of two things I hate to love.

There’s no such thing as a leap of faith. “Changing your life – really changing it – requires more than a single leap. It actually requires leaping – a little or a lot – every single day.”

I’m still obsessed with capsule wardrobes. I loathe everything I brought to Portland with me two months ago. I think that’s because it’s time for spring colors and everything I have with me is dark. Feeling inspired by Elise’s spring capsule even though our styles are really different.

Digging this Scrapbook Sunday series at A Beautiful Mess. I was so good about Project Life for a few months last year, and then totally dropped the ball. But I enjoy the process of scrapbooking, and I really love looking back on them later. It’s a sweet reminder of how our lives are made up of ordinary moments. So, goal for my upcoming visit to NH: get back into PL, and then haul all o’ that stuff west with me in May.

Want to see some really stunning photos of horses?

I’m looking forward to Susannah Conway’s April Love. Are you in?
