Hello July >>>

Hello July.  This is the month I marked on the calendar for some (hopefully) life changing goals.  Or if not so life changing, at least small habit changing.  For the year of my 30's, Im going to be choosing a new 30 day challenge each month.  The first one, my husband and I are doing together, a smoothie challenge.  This is a fun and easy one... Something to ease me into this whole challenge thing, which quite honestly, Ive never been good at.  Maybe I should come up with some sort of reward each month to keep my mind on the goal?  Im hoping that most of these challenges I put myself up to, continue to be a part of my daily life afterwards...  Ill be sharing my progress along the way too!

I am also going to do my first 365 photo challenge.  I haven't quite decided yet if I want it to all be self portraiture to allow myself to get creative in that department again, or just a photo a day... The photo above is my first one.  Day one I had company and had to do something quick, so its a rather simple simple photo, but I loved the colors in it.  So, well see where this leads me, and see if I can keep up with it!  Ill be gone almost all day today, so its going to be a challenge... Ill be posting them in my new flickr account as I go.  

Today, I am being treated like a princess from one of my girlfriends.  For my birthday, she is taking me to yoga class, then to get a massage, and then to sushi!  Ive been looking forward to today with so much excitement.  And after getting to see my Nanna, and some other very special family yesterday, its sizing up to be a good week already!


I cant say who, since it is not live yet, but when etsy's featured seller switches over at noon today, it will be a dear sweet new friend of mine... I am sooo wildly happy for her.  Please be sure to check out her shop and leave her lots of lovin' on her interview.  I cant wait to read it when I get home.  This girl is so deserving of this beautiful light shining on her.

Thank you to everyone who purchased a sponsor spot during this sale!  So excited to have all of you in my sacred space.  Today is the last day to get in on the sale, so check out my last post if you missed it.  Some of the spots are now on a waiting list, they are going fast!

A dear friend of mine is now helping me list some items in my etsy shop.  I am sooooo ever grateful for her.  So, thanks to her, there are some new pretties in Roots and Feathers!
