Woot! First SFTW of the year! I’ve been compiling these weekly lists for well over a year now and it’s the first time I’ve stuck to a regular feature on this blog. I really love putting these together so i hope you guys find them fun, too. In other news I’m still sick, but definitely on the mend — just need to slow down and not try to catch up on everything the moment i feel better *ahem*

“I try to present myself the same in-person as I do on my profile: quirky and charming and a little aloof. As if this tells my whole story. As if comparing myself to a Zooey Deschanel character is all that’s needed to encapsulate who I am: cupcakes and dresses with boots and awkward asides. This is how I’m supposed to present myself. Telling the truth—about my insomnia and depression and inability to feel normal—would be ridiculous.” – a beautifuly honest look at dating by Kristen Forbes (via Jill)

And finally, the 2013 workbook has been downloaded over 25,000 times! Crazy! Loving seeing how peeps are using it on Instagram and Facebook. Clare sent me the photo below with following note: “My friend Sam and I thought it would be a lovely thing to make some booklets for a retreat we were going on over new year. So Sam got out his sewing machine, and hey presto. They went down a treat.”

LOVE THESE SO MUCH. If you’ve blogged about how you’ve used the workbook please do share a link in the comments — I’d love to see it xx
