Have a Fantastic Day

I couldn’t get the post I wanted to write finished for today, but this will do instead. There is such beauty in this video. I love how careful and deliberate it is. Have a wonderful start to the week, friends!

Written in Ink

Happy rainy Tuesday from DC. I’m hoping that today will go a little more smoothly than yesterday. You know those days when you just feel run down…when you try so hard to be strong and yet still something breaks you? Gah. An independent single girl’s kryptonite.

Sometimes it’s a repeated mantra that gets you through a day like that and that’s one of the reasons I love these calligraphy tattoos illustrated by Mara Zepeda. (Thanks Becca for sharing these with me!) Her lettering is stunning and I get chills just looking at these works of art.

I could never get a tattoo – I change my outfit three times a day so there’s no way I could decide on wearing something permanent. (Although I think “mmmbop” would look pretty cool in calligraphy and ink.) But that’s why I love Tattly and their collection of temporary type tattoos. Pick one, feel badass and inspired, then change it up.

The Write Stuff

In addition to just writing more, one of my new year’s resolutions is to practice calligraphy. My mom has the most beautiful handwriting and I want to try and try until I’ve discovered I’ve inherited that skill too. A little inspiration to get me writing beautifully…
