today was a great day! thank you Jesus for friends who understand and respect the need to rest. sometimes it's hard to tell other people, 'i want to hangout with you, but i just really need to rest.' it's been a struggle to carve out time for rest, true rest, when the world seems to offer such excitement. i'm still trying to find the balance-- so if it seems like i'm too busy to hang out, it might just be because i need some time off. either that or, i'm just not good at keeping in touch. anyway, i took a break tonight and had some fun in the kitchen. ♥

it's been too long since my last visit to ikea. i really love spending time walking around the showrooms-- there's just so much to look at, so much to enjoy! ♥

'and let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-- and all the more as you see the day approaching.' - hebrews 10:24-25

autumn is fast approaching, and with it a change of seasons. and priorities. as much as i wish i could do it all, the fact is that i can't. and i shouldn't. so over the weekend, i took some time to slow down and relax with art. i pulled out magazines and washi tapes, vintage finds and shiny things. it was a much needed break from the busyness of life and a time for reorientation.
