Tell Her Story | Trina McNeilly, La La Lovely Blog

Happy Friday, lovelies!

A few weeks ago I recorded a podcast for the Tell Her Story series with Sarah Ann.  I’m usually behind the computer typing rather than talking, but I love the idea of women and sisters sharing their stories. My life is better because of others stories. Because my life has been so impacted by the stories of other woman I’m finding I can’t keep my story to myself. I share some of it here on this blog and am finding other ways to share as well. And I felt this podcast was a great way to do so.

One of the questions I had to answer was, “What broke your heart?” While it’s personal, it was easy to answer because I’ve been spending the past five years working through this heartbreak. And, through my breaking and journey to healing I’ve found what I’m passionate about, which I also talk about.

If you’d like to take a listen you can LISTEN ON ITUNES.

Thank you for listening, for reading, for growing along with me!

Introvert Time

I had a very busy and social week.  Introvert extroverting.  For the past few months I’ve had very slow weeks (in order to rest and recuperate) and come, almost every, January I always find myself hibernating and feeling somewhat isolated.  This past week, however, felt more like July (not in terms of weather I assure you.  The mercury was locking in at a whopping one degrees).  Get togethers, sports events, birthdays, and sunny hair highlights.  I found myself feeling less isolated, but

I’ve never been one to cheat on Thanksgiving.  It’s always felt at bit two-timey, to me, to put a tree up before that thankful Thursday.  Everything, feels so rushed in this round globe we are spinning around on.  It can never just be one thing at time.  And, that goes for holidays too, I suppose.  This year, I can’t wait for Christmas.   So much so, that I think I might have it in me to cheat on Thanksgiving this year. The true confession is that . . .

Last week, i included this kitchen in an inspiring rooms post and made mention that it just might show up as a house crush.  And here we are, already, because I can’t get this pretty abode, belonging to Levi, Claudia + Eve and featured on the Beetle Shack,  out of my mind.

Everything about this space catches my eye.  It’s calm and collected.  It’s not fussy and has a touch of fun.  It’s lived in and brings life from the outside in.
