r e a d i n g : Memory Wall by Anthony Doerr, and The Shallows by Nicholas Carr. Both are excellent and I now realize they sort of complement each other. Memory Wall is a series of fictional stories involving memories and how they impact our lives… while The Shallows explores the impact of technology on our brains. You should check them both out. seriously. the latter being a must read!

l i s t e n i n g : to AM radio. all the happenings of the presidential race have me hooked to 970. i probably should refresh my mind with some chill tunes …

l o v i n g : my new workout routine! wow. i wore myself out today – tabata, like high intensity interval training, is a serious sweat-breaker. it’s a short, heart-racing repetition that takes maybe 15 min. you’re wiped out at the end if you’re in terrible shape like me! i blame two years in a row of pregnancy.
for fun, i’m also following a stretch routine to work up to splits… ’cause, why not?

d r e a m i n g : of tapping into my artistic skills; i’ve been away from the canvas far too long. now is the time to express, explore and nourish my creative bones.

r e a d i n g : we visited the library today and i checked out a pile of books, including Memory Wall by Anthony Doerr. I’ve been dying to read All the Light We Cannot See … and who hasn’t, apparently, because i’m the 50th person on a growing wait list at the library. i hope for a great experience for all the waiting… anywho, tonight i will begin his other book.

l i s t e n i n g : Damien Jurado … my husband is always discovering fantastic artists. this guy is heading our way soon and we’re hoping to make it to the concert – we’ve been talking about enjoying more music together. we’re both musicians and have now been to  O N E  show together; a sad reality. now we need deep pockets for the growing list of “must see” shows.

l o v i n g : spring – this S U N. and new beginnings with the new church plant we’re attending. we have a new community of friends that we gather with weekly to share a meal; share life; encourage each other and laugh together. so much joy is stirring and defining of purpose. i am starting to feel roots grow …

d r e a m i n g : of adventure !! hiking, skiing, back-packing.. i want to be outdoors! we visited Bend again recently and left me changed. i crave the air, the skies; a wanderlust spirit surfacing.

looking forward … to what this summer holds. Teddy will be growing fast and Juliet will have a playmate. watching them together is a joy; their friendship will blossom and flourish over the next couple years. i love my family ❤
