thesuitcasestudio during last night's walk with the dog, I was struck by an amazing sense of PRESENCE in my own life. For once, the voices rattling off my to-do list were quieted, and I didn't feel like I was rushing through the walk as another chore to cross off. Instead, my body was happy to move, I enjoyed the company of my dog beside me, the perfect pandora playlist was filling my ears, and I looked up to see THIS beautiful sight. It all came together. And I realized just how much I'm NOT present in the little moments of my own life, and just how much I still need to make room for in my own life. 23h

thesuitcasestudio My besties treated me to a day at I ️ SPA. I never realized this place was even HERE, even though it's a few miles away from my house. So much more than the jacuzzi & steam room I'm used to seeing, this place has salt rooms, a scented forest room, a sauna that reminded me of a Native American sweat lodge, an ICE room (where THIS pic was taken), and an open area with heated floors to relax and take a nap. First time in a LOOOOONG time my mind was quiet. #belatedbirthday #spaaaaahhh #bestfriendsforever #wetotallylooklikeprincessleah 2d

thesuitcasestudio Shadows creep along the bedroom wall, marking the time as I still sit behind the computer... as I have been for most of the day. But believe it or not, I find much of my joy right here, and am content to sit here as my Saturday melts away. #creatingkeepsakes #holidayplanning 3d

thesuitcasestudio A photo might be worth a thousand words, but string several photos together and you've got a STORY. I've always been a BIG fan of the photo album, and am in my element... selecting images, sizes & placement so that the eye travels along the design and the heart is warmed along the way. #storyteller #fineartalbum 6d
