“I just got one last thing; I urge all of you, all of you, to enjoy your lie, the precious moments you have. To spend each day with some laughter and some thought, to get your emotions going. To be enthusiastic every day, and as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, ‘Nothing great could be accomplished without enthusiasm,’ to keep your dreams alive in spite of problems whatever you have. The ability to be able to work hard for your dreams to come true, to become a reality.” – Former coach Jim Valvano, when receiving the first-ever Arthur Ashe Courage and Humanitarian Award.

Happy Saturday! +3 Good Things for your Weekend

Saturday | Covet Living

Happy Saturday, y’all!  I hope this (^) is what your weekend already feels like.  It’s the most gorgeous day in San Diego, and my friend Hope and I are about to go for a long hike and then jump in the ocean.  That’s not awful, right??  Even if the temps aren’t so amazing where you are, I hope you’re cozily nestled in a fuzzy blanket watching football, or Christmas shopping online while you sip hot cocoa in your PJ’s (on that note – we have AMAZING Holiday Gift Guides coming out in the following weeks!), or doing whatever it is that fans up your skirt and makes you feel happy.  On that note…  here are:

3 GOOD THINGS FOR YOUR WEEKEND

1.  { listen } :: This is my new favorite jam, which will make you feel instantly relaxed… #namaste.  And it’s by the Bestie Boys of all people (say what now?)..  Brought to me by unicorn of a human / my older brother of sorts, Mully.

2.  { buy } ::  Best Plaid Shirt You’ll Ever Purchase, Target $22.99.  PS, it’s Buy 1, get 50% off clothing, shoes and accessories today at The Mothership – otherwise known as Tar-Jay.

3.  { read | nourish your soul } :: That effervescent image at the top is from a VERY poignant post Karrie did last January as reassurance to me when I was in the throes of a gut-wrenching breakup that everything was going to be just fine, and that it was actually for the best.  I’m reposting today because I have a few girlfriends who just made the very brave and never-easy decision to get out of relationships that were neither healthy nor sustainable, despite there being a lot of love.  And those gals get nothing but huge hugs and gobs of respect from me.  If you’re going through a similar thang, then Karrie’s post will do you proud, girlfriend.  In about 45 seconds.
