friday finds and favorites #3


1.  first off- one of my favorite things this week is probably the comments on my post yesterday about dreams. I am so glad to hear that I am not the only one that sometimes feels discouraged or weary pursuing dreams. Let's continue to encourage each other, and do as Valerie wrote, keep our "dreams in sight at all times. They seem far away, but hopefully every day they get a little bit closer!"

2. bracelets!  I rarely wear bracelets cuz I have such dang bony little wrists, but ohhh I am loving them lately... here's a few of my favorites:

3.  these fun handmade skirts by dottie adele

4. this post on how to make fabric tape!

another huge thing that was my favorite this week was talking with friends who told me that they found my blog and liked it... and for once I tried not to get too embarrassed talking about it. :)

happy friday! have a splendid saturday + sunday! it's still birthday celebration for the husband and i-- we'll be seeing in-laws and my family for dinners and presents. I'm a little excited.

xo, erika


  1. It's always weird talking about bloggy stuff with in-real-life friends :) I LOVE those skirts!!!

  2. I hope you have a fabulous weekend, girl! Thank you for sharing your heart on here. I had a similar "what does it all mean" / "how can I do everything I want"? breakdown this week. It's comforting to know we all struggle together. :) Love those skirts, too. xo
