summer☀️school for the soul

There will be days, this summer, after all that sand and sun, when you might just crave a little soul-deep soak in lessons that someone else has already learned the hard way.  

One small shortcut to wise, please, hold the jimmies.  Can’t it just be that simple?

I’ve got you.

Asking our friends about their core optimism or pessimism is always fascinating. You may think you have a handle on where she falls on the spectrum just from doing life together, but your opinion about her does not make it so.

The right amount of curiosity cracks open a doorway to deeper trust.

What’s the gift you’ve loved best to give?

I learned when I asked a few of my friends about the kinds of gifts they love best to give, that these people are more amazing than I even thought, that I have excellent taste in friends, and that I am an impoverished giver…but I have some great teachers.

How long has it been?

  What happens when girls who have known each other through wayward children, job changes, ludicrous mistakes, relocations, and almost born grand-babies come together around brunch as an excuse just to laugh in the presence of love, eggs, Jesus, and lipstick? We mend our souls and conquer the world.
