weekend notes

I’m so happy it’s here … the weekend.

I plan on soaking in a s-l-o-w Saturday. Maybe hitting a few garage sales and stopping by the barn. The weather here in Austin is simply gorgeous. Happy little blooms are popping up everywhere. So this is the time we get outside and say grace over 70 degree weather.  Soon enough, we’ll have the heat.

Yesterday, Kate and I met at a favorite new spot of mine: Epicerie. We met Pete (instagram above). Pete poured us some sunshine ~ and suddenly it was Mimosa Thursday. Isn’t it funny how a small unexpected pleasure can turn an otherwise nice day into ridiculously awesome? (If you get to Epicerie, try their spinach salad w. poached farm egg. Oh my!)

The Staves ~ Watching West

The sisters have another amazing video out. Every time I hear them, I wonder how my girls and I got so lucky to hear them live in Austin at the Paramount. My little musician, Sara, kept hitting her hands to forehead she was so blown away.

I did a bit of spring cleaning in my studio/office. I wanted a chalk wall like this on Pinterest but am pretty terrified of starting a paint project and not finishing it. So, I bought Wallies Peel & Stick Mural on Amazon. And I love it. Super helpful in getting all my ideas out of my head and straight to a spot I can see and remember.

It’s St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday. Maybe I’ll make this feast again? Irish Soda Bread & Herb Rubbed Brisket … mmmm.

Finally, this verse is sitting with me.

And as I watch my yard slowly wake in a riot of spring color … I pray my soul will wake to God as well.

happiest weekend!
