Hi friends. I don’t have much to say today. I have done so much reflection this week and I am working really hard at turning my anger into action and accountability. Recognizing my own patterns of behavior and modes of operation have been difficult and also enlightening. I am continuing to explore what it means to be a leader, what it means to create community, and how I can best serve all of you in a way that is meaningful. Figuring that out as I go but I am so thankful and grateful to have you all here. Please take care of yourselves.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

I keep meaning to share and now I honestly can’t remember if I already did, this dinnerware by Casafina. I bought it for the Vermont house last year on Black Friday and I absolutely love it. The quality is amazing and it’s gorgeous. It’s microwave and dishwasher safe and I have been so impressed. (J)
