My friend Kate told me about Paul Jarvis this week and I was instantly obsessed. All his websites and programs are so clean and beautiful and look so helpful! I can’t wait to learn more about the Creative Class. The day after, Sarah Von Bargen posted this article by him about consumption spirals that I loved. Apparently I was meant to encounter Paul this week.
How to love your partner the way they actually want to be loved instead of leading with “Toddler Brain”.

It’s been another week that’s completely flown by with meetings and emails and work. That said, it’s had lots of lovely elements too: splitting a yummy pizza, pulling tarot cards on a sunny morning, talking about business with a group of cool people, brainstorming on big pieces of paper taped to the wall, visiting my friend Kathryn’s gorgeous studio (pictured above) and having soul chats. I love this life I’m living and feel lucky for it every single day. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too! xo.
