Twirling… into the weekend.

I have literally never said this before and I’m afraid I will never say it again. But this article, Turning, is probably my favorite thing I’ve had the pleasure of writing. I’m so so proud that I get to post it at (in)courage– it’s like my beach house for writing, so I go there as much as possible.

I don’t say all this “favorite article ever” junk to brag. I say this to say, “you better check it out cause it’s all downhill from there.”

But I will brag about this. My friends Amber and Ash have done their second installment of Amber&Ash- a super cool idea where Amber, a stylist, gives Ash a room to design based off of a stylish outfit (Ash is an interior designer) and then Ash gives Amber a room and she makes a sassy outfit to fit the room. It is possibly one of my favorite things to read.

Amber’s blog = outfit to room

Ash’s blog = room to outfit

Y’all have a great weekend. Mine is packed with great friends in town, a wedding, a baby shower, time at the pool [fingers crossed], brunch at Marche, finishing my talks for Lake Geneva, and pretty much running full force into as much awesome as possible.

TGIF, people. TGIF.

    You’re right, Annie. It’s a beautiful article. I’ll be twirling 47 this Sunday. I have the perfect dress for it…

    Twirling 30…wish I’d heard of that before my birthday in January. It might have made 30 easier to take. I’ll definitely keep it in mind from here on out!

    You’re right. that turning article got me. I am in the midst of some turning and it’s slow and hard and I can’t seem to see around the bend like I’d like to.
    But maybe if I embrace it with a little twirling I’ll stop trying to see it and just live it.
    Thank you.
