What Can I Do For You?
Does the photo above feel like you? Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, scared? Me, too. I carry my stress physically, and it hit its peak earlier this week. I shared my fears with Scott, fell asleep early and slept in. I woke up to a new, better day, but still I think: What can I do? What can I do for you? I was having a chat with my friend Miss Beth, and she said something that struck me to the core:
The world is begging us to pay attention and desperate for a shift. We better listen.
I’ve been letting that sink in for days, and when we come out from the other side of this, I’m hopeful that we’ve emerged with a renewed sense of purpose. Personally, I’m feeling a pull to connect with you more than ever. I want to connect creatively, through conversation. I’ve been impressed and in awe of the social media landscape – so many inspiring discussions, distractions and thought starters! – and again I ask, What can I do for you?
What Can We Do for Each Other?
We hope that you’ll stick around and keep reading blogs. Enjoying blogs. Sharing blogs. We promise to continue to put in the hard work to the best of our ability. Hearing from you – through comments, messages and tapping that little ‘heart’ – is what keeps us afloat and allows us to show up every day. Friends, let’s talk about anything. Everything. Big stuff, little stuff. I’ll do what I can for you, and may you do the same for others.
Other Things This Week:
The most popular course in Yale’s history is available online for free!
We started watching Little Fires Everywhere, AND I AM HOOKED. Have you seen it?
The prettiest forever bag. (Bronzed Lichen is the perfect neutral!)
We’ve been at Tree House all week (a plan put in place more than a month ago), with the goal of getting it tuned it for our first(!) Airbnb guests. Although we’re not sure when that will happen now, we’re still putting in the efforts on making it the most comfortable place it can be. We just added this custom guest book, and we had the best experience with the sellers! If you have a celebration in your future, an order would not only give you something to look forward to, but it would support a small business.
Interior Define is having their Living Room Event! Everything is 15% off, and we just ordered a big batch of fabric samples. Yup, that means we’re making decisions for The Two Flat’s first piece of furniture!
The science of dragons? Yes, please!
If you’re experiencing a particularly tough time, can you let me know? We’re working together with a longtime partner to deliver small tokens of happiness. Leave a comment below or send us an email. xx
Have a restful weekend, friends. I think we could all use a big, deep breath, a FaceTime with loved ones and a hug from those we share our homes with.
PS: I’ve been getting a lot of home source questions lately! You can see where many of the items are from in our Chicago home here, and our Tree House here. I’ve also shared a big round-up of our favorite places to shop right here.
