seven on sunday // 001





  1.  DOWNTOWN WICHITA  

last week, i moved into our new corporate offices in downtown wichita. it is surreal. (not to mention amazing because byyyyeeee to k-96 traffic. miss you never.) it's weird to ride on an elevator. it's weird to look out the window and remember i work in a "tower", as jackson calls it. it's weird because it's all new, but i don't take one bit for granted.


  2.  100 DAY PROJECT   

one of my 2020 goals is to participate in the 100 day project. what a perfect time to stretch myself creatively since the world is anything but normal at the moment. my subject for the project is lists. i got the idea from my internet friend, rachel. i purchased these little notebooks for documenting the daily lists, but i also plan to share them on insta-stories somehow.


  3.  PLANT LADY  

i bought two new plants this weekend, and it's safe to say they won't be the last. there's something about plants that brings calm + coziness to our home. i am excited to purchase a plant from a new local shop in wichita. we are also building a greenhouse with our neighbor, and it is going to be so wonderful to walk out to our backyard and grab tomatoes or peppers to eat.

  4.  SPRING IS HERE  

well, except for this weekend. brrr. but the trees are blooming + you know it makes my heart happy. 

  5.  IS THAT YOU, RONA?  

our lives are anything but normal right now because of the coronavirus. i have lots of opinions, but i have saved all of those for my husband + not for the internet. i will say one thing- as i was discussing all the craziness, i started listing all the people close to us who would be most susceptible to the virus. it was then that i realized this isn't about me anymore. i am doing my part to protect those i love + care about, but i'm still living- with a little more understanding + compassion for those around me. 

  6.  NY TIMES DAILY MINI CROSSWORD  

i can't remember where i saw this (probably twitter) but the ny times offers a mini crossword on their website every day. i find it challenging + fun to stretch my brain. my best time is one minute!

  7.  SEVEN ON SUDAY SERIES  


this is a new series on the blog to replace the weekly musings posts. my hope is that i can blog more now that our lives are . . . i don't even know the way to describe it. i like having a space to reflect on, and i also like sharing things i find or love or whatever. blogging is so different these days, especially for someone who was doing it at the height of the blogging days. (2011-2015ish). i don't really care if i have a ton of readership, but if something i post resonates with someone, that's the real goal here.
