The weekend just past left me feeling thankful, energised & present. I hosted a small dinner party with a few of my close friends Friday night; candles, wine, Italian food (my favourite) & ocean air. I had some work to catch up on over the weekend, so I awoke early Saturday morning, got my Yin Yoga on, & headed straight into the studio to create some orders & stockist orders. My man & I then went out to one of our favourite breakfast cafes in Brisbane, VUE, & enjoyed a hearty vegetarian breakfast with my mum, & Atlas, our rescued greyhound, in toe. Despite Atlas' efforts to devour my avocado on sourdough, it was a truly treasured moment with family. We came home, I finished off some work & as the afternoon rolled around we decided to go for a picnic along the river & watch the sunset as a family. Once again, something that could be deemed so simple, was oh so treasured. Sunday was HERB GARDEN day, we finally gave life to the vintage ladder we had made into planter box out of months ago. My man & I love to cook, so having fresh organic herbs in the kitchen is going to be so lovely.
Sometimes it's these 'small' things, moments & experiences that so many overlook, as they may not be filled with extravagance or glamour, however sometimes its these same 'things' that are the most soul-filling.
As I am growing I am becoming more aware of what I enjoy & how I enjoy it.
We are all unique creatures, with different traits, quirks, likes, dislikes, desires & visions, & in this fast-paced, heavy society, it is so important to not lose sight of the small things that make us happy; instead of always striving for more. I try to stay present & thankful, knowing that everyday holds miracle, & that something amazing is about to happen.
This is big reason why our jewellery has deep intentional value, as it always reminds me, & our YCL customers, to enjoy simply, & freely love & accept ourselves, wildly.
Here is how my weekend went down, Instagram Style:
