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 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 65 :: trust is surprises

7 Mar


{trust} 

I came home to this written in the snow last night. 

It’s a sweet gesture from Justin, and a few paw prints from Brady, in the snow. Written with red food coloring and a lot of love. It’s such a nice feeling to know someone was thinking of you even when you were not right there.

Love is trust and trust is love. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 63 :: trust is officially…

5 Mar

{trust} 

It’s official. We have Massachusetts license plates. There’s no turning back now! As Justin said today as we left the RMV, “We collect license plates like people collect baseball cards.”

It’s true. We have a few now in our possession… Florida, Oregon, Washington, Massachusetts… and counting. Well, hopefully not counting. We are trusting that we will be in this state for a while. 

Trust used to be moving around the country year after year for us. Chasing the next opportunity and adventure.  But now, trust feels a lot more like being in the place where you are. Trusting we will be here for a while but we are definitely here now. 

At least that’s what the license plates say.
Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 62 :: trust is neighbors helping neighbors

4 Mar



{trust}  

Oh, snow! We woke up to the car being buried in 15 inches of snow. Just a small Boston problem but that is what snow plows are for! Except they missed us and our parking spots while I was on a work call so we had to shovel the cars out ourselves. Or, I should say, JUSTIN had to shovel the cars out.

There was a neighbor who lent a shovel, which was very nice. It makes me think about the power of trust and neighbors. Something that just isn’t as necessary as it used to be (why borrow an egg when Amazon can deliver one?).

I think we help each other in different ways now, through social media recommendations and email requests. But sometimes it’s nice to have some good old fashioned neighborly helping hands.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 60 :: trust is love

2 Mar


{trust}  

It’s been a snowy beautiful winter day. Which means there was shoveling and car moving and a lot of movie viewing and HGTV watching to do. It’s the best way to spend a winter indoor Saturday.

Trust is love. And true love is when your husband participates in watching many Fixer Upper reruns without complaining. I mean, that’s got to be true love.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
