All of My Days, All of My Days

Well I have been searching all of my days
All of my days
Many a road, you know
I’ve been walking on
All of my days
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well I have been quietly standing in the shade
All of my days
Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
All of this rain
And I’ve been trying to find
What’s been in my mind
As the days keep turning into night

Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud
I shook my hands
What am I doing here
All of these days
For I look around me
And my eyes confound me
And it’s just too bright
As the days keep turning into night

Now I see clearly
It’s you I’m looking for
All of my days
Soon I’ll smile
I know I’ll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems He found me
And it’s coming into sight
As the days keep turning into night
As the days keep turning into night
And even breathing feels all right
Yes, even breathing feels all right
Now even breathing feels all right
It’s even breathing
Feels all right

Pretty Song for the Day: Ho Hey by The Lumineers, covered by PS22 Chorus

If you have never listened to these kiddos before, go do it now. The passion and heart that they show is absolutely inspiring, and their teacher is a pretty amazing guy. I’ve been listening to the PS22 choruses for years and years now. Always always always makes my days better. Such beautiful little souls.

Magazine for a Monday: Kinfolk

I don’t know about you, but I think one of the best parts of having a home are the get togethers. Or as the mister puts it, hosting. (Him and his prep school lingo…) We don’t get to do it often, with our busy schedules, limited together time on the weekend, and all of us having kiddos these days, but when we do, I absolutely love it. We prefer a less formal occassion, sometimes with a general theme like Italian, and sometimes not. And everyone brings something, a little potluck dinner if you will. Enjoying an evening with your friends, with good food, sips, great conversation, the kids playing, and music in the background, is what it’s all about. And maybe a board game or two. So simple, yet so special.

So it’s no surprise that when I stumbled upon Kinfolk Magazine, I was immediately in heaven. From their manifesto: “Kinfolk is a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us….the way we feel entertaining should be: simple, uncomplicated, and less contrived”. A magazine solely dedicated to all things small gatherings, simplicity, local and nature! These people have awesome jobs, that’s all I have to say. The styling, the photography, the lighting, the guests – EVERYTHING about Kinfolk is absolutely beautiful and simple. Their website features videos by amazingly talented filmmakers, links to their 5 Volumes, and a journal.

They also showcase the most wonderful Dinner Series you have ever laid your eyes upon – they’ve held 7 ‘local’ dinners so far this year, in various cities around the country. “The Kinfolk dinner series is about inviting people to gather and take advantage of the rich community that already exists around them, opening up and drawing close to the people that share a common place.”

You can pick up the Autumn themed Volume 5 now, and also purchase the earlier volumes directly on their website. I’ve seen it in Anthropologie, and there is also a list of all stockists. Kinfolk’s description of Volume 5: “…delve into practical ideas and recipes for entertaining as the leaves begin to fall: herb drying at home, fall camping, meals to take surfing and new seasonal traditions.”  You will thank me, I promise.

Difficult Days, Seeing the Stars

After the high that was yesterday, the expectations, anticipation – I am brought back down to earth and reality.

I choose to move forward.

And I will choose happiness. Nobody, NOBODY, can take that away from me. I am thankful for this life. I am thankful. I am thankful. I am thankful.

I see the stars.

The World Spins Madly On – The Weepies

Today – Of Life, Change, Growth, Pain, Progress, Hope

My life is full of some pretty amazing stuff right now. Amazing, terrifying, unimaginable, promising, unbelievable. Life changing cannot even touch it. It’s indescribable. Freedom. The future and the unknown can be pretty frightening, at least for me.

But I do know this, that this is all good.

And I will take whatever comes my way and keep moving forward, and not look back. Unforgettable.

WHAT. A. RIDE. LIFE. IS.

And I’ll be bold

As well as strong

And I’ll use my head alongside my heart.

So take my flesh

Fix my eyes

A tethered mind free from the lies.
