THIS WEEK’S ROSE AND THORN

Happy Friday! I’m looking forward to a productive weekend at home after visiting Will’s parents in Dallas last weekend. Our friends Shelly and James are hosting a holiday party tonight and then we’re going to try to make some serious progress around the house on Saturday and Sunday. We’ve unpacked most of the kitchen, living room, and dining room so I think the next big projects are organizing our closets and setting up our home office. Moving into a new house was great motivation for me to get more organized so I’ve been really thoughtful about purging/donating duplicate items and finding homes for everything we want to keep. I’m excited to start shooting some organizational posts in 2018!

This week’s rose was a holiday party at Jordan’s house with a group of local female entrepreneurs started by my friend Julia. I didn’t know how badly I was missing this kind of community since leaving New York in 2015 and I’m so grateful to have connected with such an inspiring group of women here in my home state. I’m excited to get to know all of them better and to share some of their work here with you!

This week’s thorn was how freezing cold it has been in Connecticut this week. When it “feels like” 6 degrees, all I want to do is book a flight somewhere far, far away. I’ve gotten into such a nice routine of taking Rory on a long walk every morning since moving into our new house and I hate having to cut that short because I can’t feel my face. But we did get a pretty dusting of snow on Wednesday night — my feeling is that if it’s going to be cold, we might as well get snow! Have a good one (and stay warm)! xx

  1. Being part of a supportive community is so important! That’s so wonderful that you found a local one! I feel like nowadays we underestimate how important in person conversations are to mental health. Digital communication is amazing! But it can’t replace being physically present with supportive people. Happy Friday, xAllie http://www.theallthatglittersblog.com
