JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 77 :: trust the final project

19 Mar

{trust} 

Whew!! It’s done. We added the final touches tonight and I have to say… I love it. We still have to get all the candles and lanterns but… this baby project is complete! (Thank you Justin!) 

Sometimes the hardest part of any project or piece of art is trusting your instincts and knowing when it’s time to stop and call it done. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 76 :: trust the new

18 Mar



{trust}  

I am the proud new owner of a mouth guard. I’m not too happy about it, mostly I’m concerned it will be hard to sleep. But I grind my teeth so therefore the guard is necessary.

It’s hard to change your routine, ever. But it’s especially hard when you have practiced how you sleep your entire life. Which I have. So this is going to be interesting…

“Trust the new,” I keep telling myself. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 75 :: trust you are lucky

17 Mar

{trust} 

I didn’t wear any green today but I do feel lucky.

We spent the day sanding, painting, and sanding and painting. The faux fireplace is real and really done (except for the final insert but who’s counting?). I feel lucky to have a husband who takes my inspirations and helps turn them into real things for me to enjoy.

Even though it required seventeen trips to Lowes. On one of the last trips a man in the building aisle turned and said to us, “I’ve seen you both here so many times, you must be making something really cool.”

Five returned items and one new circ saw later, we have a beautiful faux fireplace complete with 45-degree angles. But I have something else in my heart. Trust.

On this St. Patrick’s Day, I am thinking about those who are lucky to live in trust. With their loved ones, their families and friends, their communities, and a hubby who will go to the ends of the world to build their dreams… or at least to Lowe’s seventeen times.    

As this year moves on, it is becoming clear to me that we need to build more trust. Between the headlines of mass shootings and college entrance bribings and children marching, to mention a few, I have to wonder if more Trust could help solve it all.

I would like to live in that world, a world where trust was the simple answer. As I sit here, at the end of the luckiest day of the year, I wish we could all be so lucky.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 74 :: trust is working together

16 Mar

{trust} 

The fireplace is 80% of the way complete. After four trips to Lowes today and a few improvisations on the fly, I have to say the finished product is better than we imagined. And should be finished tomorrow!

And that makes me think about how much better everything is when we collaborate and trust each other. The world needs more trust and collaboration. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 73 :: trust is a work of art

15 Mar

{trust} 

I’m watching my husband build me a gift of art. It’s a fake fireplace and I couldn’t be more excited. He is being precise, measuring and monitoring all the pieces and parts before he builds and screws, hammers and glues. 

It may be a fake fireplace but the gift is very, very real. When I first saw the inspiration for it on TV he balked. Mostly because we had been looking at other fake fireplaces to order online – you know, the ones that actually throw heat. But I had an inspiration and changed my mind. He didn’t agree with me on it at first, but the next day when I came home he had drawn up plans, jumped in the car before I could get out and we drove to Lowes. 

Now he is making it. 

It makes me think about how much care goes into trust. If only we would measure twice and cut once. Trust is a work of art. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 72 :: trust your waiter

14 Mar


{trust}  

A funny thing happened on the way to dinner tonight…I thought about trust. And my waiter. We really give our waiters a massive amount of trust. To take care of us, to take care of our food, recommendations, drinks, service, experience… and on an on.

It’s only funny because I have never really truly deeply thought about all the points of trust that occur when you dine out. 

That’s what trust is doing to me this year… making me see the world through the eyes of trust. And it’s a whole new world.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 70 :: as soon as you trust

12 Mar



{trust}  

Trust is patient. Almost too patient for this go-go-go type of girl. But Trust is teaching me to stop and breathe a little deeper, pause a little longer, and stretch my patience. 

There is power in that because as soon as you trust you believe. And if you believe you can do anything. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 69 :: believing is the power to dream

11 Mar



{trust}  

We dreamt out loud tonight. All about what we would do if we won the lottery, like a really big life-changing lottery.

It was a fun exercising in dreaming and trusting in your heart’s core dream. It’s funny what comes out when you dream out loud when you trust your heart and what you want the most. We dreamt up houses and innovative ideas and amazing vacations and they all shared a single thread. They were all shared with family.

Who knows if we will ever win the lottery. But it’s good to know we agree on where the money should go. It all makes me think that believing is the power to dream, and dreaming is the power to believe. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 68 :: trust is believing

10 Mar

{trust} 

Day. Light. Savings. It’s here! Which means Spring is really, really, close, right? That may not explain why it snowed all morning. I do think winter challenges our trust in spring.

Today, a friend wrote to me about the importance of belief. Believing, really. And, I believe in many, many things, but today as we welcome Day Light Savings, I believe in Spring. 

Trust is believing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
