JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 79 :: trust the adventure

21 Mar

{trust} 

I find myself in Chicago tonight, it’s another travel day. Which means an adventure. Today’s adventure started off with my Uber driver canceling my ride to Logan Airport. It’s okay, I just called another UBER and made it to the airport just a little late. I still had time.

Then my bag was pulled in the airport security line for inspection.  I waited behind two other people waiting for their bags to be inspected. The first was a young mother with a bag full of breast milk. As the security guard inspected her bag the breast milk spilled all over the security table which took extra time to clean up. Then the next woman in line had a bag full of hairspray and soda. As I stood in line waiting, not very patiently, for my turn I couldn’t help but chastise these poor bag packers and vacation planners standing in line ahead of me as the time ticked away to take off. 

Finally, it was my turn and the security guard picked up my bag. Then she promptly pulled out not a bottle of milk, or hairspray or soda… but a metal tool called a Leatherman.

I gasped, and said, “Oh, my God we have been looking for that thing for weeks! I have no idea how it got in my computer bag…”

The security said, “Do you want to check it in your luggage and go back through security?” I looked at the long line and contemplated what was worse, missing my flight or telling Justin that the Leatherman he had been searching the house up and down for the last two weeks now permanently lived at Logan Airport.

I chose the latter and made my flight. The irony of all it this is that when I spoke to Justin tonight neither of us could figure out how the Leatherman got into my computer bag but both of us agreed that I was the worst offender out of everyone in line (especially the ones I was judging for their poor packing skills). Turns out I was the true idiot packer in line today. 

But it was an adventure. 
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 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 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 59 :: trust brings sweet dreams

1 Mar

I spent the entire day at a workshop in Boston. It was amazing and now my eyes are sleepy and my brain is tired. So tonight this blog post will be a light one.



{trust}  

The good news is that I will have sweet dreams. Because when you push yourself it is invigorating, and at the end of the day, when you stay true to yourself you have sweet dreams. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 53 :: trust, ease and grace

23 Feb

{trust} 

I didn’t sleep at all last night. Justin was up with a cold and neither one of us were able to sleep. So today I slept the afternoon away and even though I felt a large amount of guilt for not using that time to be productive or accomplish something important… it felt so good to sleep.

Sleep is amazing. And today, I’m just going to trust that sleep is what I need, with ease and grace and more sleep we can do amazing things.

So sleep it is! Sleep sweet sleep. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 52 :: trust and allow

22 Feb


{trust}  

The theme that keeps coming up this year is to Trust and Allow.

But after tonight and our viewing of A Star Is Born, I do not think my husband will trust my movie picks. Rightfully so…  I was bored out of my mind too watching this movie.

I know it’s getting accolades and awards, and I absolutely love all the actors who star in it, but the story? It just didn’t do it for me. 

The song, on the other hand, I cannot get out of my head.

I’m not sure there is a lesson in this one, but there is a tad bit of disappointment. We will see what the Oscars say on Sunday. Until then, we have a few more movies to cram in before the big night. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 48 :: trust ina snow day

18 Feb



{trust}  

It’s Day 48 of 2019 and this Promise of Trust. And, today, we had a snow day. There are about five inches of snow on the ground. It’s light, fluffy and the “fun” kind of snow.

Brady certainly had a fun time in it, bouncing from snow bank to snow bank. I worked from home and reorganized a closet. Now we are all cuddled up in blankets. Brady included.

Snow days can be so cozy, huddled up inside. Before the stir-craziness sets in. But we are not there yet, we are just cozy admiring the perfectly fluffy snow. 

Sometimes a snow day is all you need. As for tomorrow, it will rain.

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 46 :: trust a leap of faith

16 Feb


{trust}  

Trust is the theme of the year… and she keeps whispering in my ear. Today she said… trust is a leap of faith in yourself. After all, we create what we believe, we see what we want to and we believe what we feel. So why not feel trust in everything? 

Trust me!

More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie
