grateful: week 51

inspired by my reading of the happiness project by gretchen rubin, i am instituting monday "gratitude" posts (read here for more detail), where i will list "3 things i'm grateful for" from the previous week.

the 3 things i'm grateful for this week are:

1)  two days with my dad in town for business!
2) a busy + productive work week

3)  a weekend in austin, texas (my first visit to the lone star state!) with the bf and his ut friends (more pictures to share soon!)

this week's blog love:
  • dustjacket attic features an editorial with joy bryant set in paradise (that's  jasmine on parenthood)!
  • besotted brand blog posted the most interesting and arresting picture, you must take a look!
  • i love anne of the city sage's room + outfit pairings with the new tibi spring collection.
  • alaina of live creating yourself bought herself an old wooden ladder - and shares lots of inspiration on how to display one.  someday?  i will have a functional one in a library so i can reach the top of my floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with ease...
  • well of course i'm going to link to ashley nicole catherine's ballet-inspired wedding post!  duh!
here's to another grateful week.

  1. yay austin! glad you made it out to the oasis and it looks like maybe bull creek?


  2. Aww, how fun! I've never been to Texas but I'm about the closest I've ever been - three states away. Maybe I'll make a fun trip of it someday?

  3. So sad I missed your visit here! Austin IS beautiful. Now I'm curious where that last picture was taken. I thought I've seen all the beautiful spots in Austin. Unless it's the botanical gardens, and they planted a new flower :) . Love the Oasis view!

  4. Hope you had a wonderful weekend (and ya'll come back now, ya hear?) Did you get a chance to go to 6th Street???

  5. no bull creek, ash! but yes, the oasis, that's pics 2 & 3.

    casee marie - you should!

    pinksundrops - it was taken at mayfield gardens (!

    jess - yes! friday night was spent on 6th street - it was a little crazy b/c of austin relays, but we had fun :) and i WILL come back if y'all will have me ;)


thanks so much for the note! i love reading your comments. xo. di.
