“Nature holds out her hands
brimming with gifts,
and we buzz about in
the shadow of them,
head down, wondering
why it is so dark.”
-Charles Montgomery Skinner
This leaf was one of nature’s gifts to me on a hiking expedition with friends last week. I’m in awe of the vibrant colors and depth of breathtaking beauty one autumn leaf can hold.
These brush pens are from @karinmarkers and they are amazing! They come in dozens of colors and I can’t wait to try them all!
The write stuff ~ too often bumped down the prio list / dismissed as inessential in a world full of tapping devices, the therapeutic powers of the handwritten word are n0t to be neglected. Pick up a pen + let your fingers flow, free of self-judgement or critique; it’ll help your mind more than ya might th ✍🏽〰️💆🏽♀️ ~tenuous @kendricklamar lyric~

P R O G R E S S
About 8 months ago I was so proud of the lettering to the right and now I’m so proud of the progress I’ve made since then on the left. I can’t wait to see how much more I evolve with time. Practice really does make progress.
GIVEAWAY / BLESS ::
If you know me in real life you’ll know that I’ve been banging on about a book called Surprise the World for the last few years. It helps us set up 5 practices and rhythms for our lives that move us outward beyond just living for ourselves.
The first is called ‘Bless’ and the action is to bless a few people a week whether that be random acts of kindness, and encouraging text, a homemade meal or a thoughtful gift. Don’t tell the other 4 but it might be my favourite. But why am I telling you this? Well, I don’t want this account to any different to my real life - so on Monday’s I want to give a print away to bless you, or for you to then bless someone else who needs some love or encouragement.
Make sure you’re following me and tag a friend in the comments below, or repost this photo and tag me #foundbylovegiveaway for bonus entries.
I’ll announce a winner and send it off on Friday!
All my love, Lauren xxx
