Happy hump day people! This week has been pretty exhausting for me so far, but I can't complain too much because I do enjoy working with my little humans err' day, and cough-cough, because it's only my second week back to work after a month long vacation. So yeah, I'll just suck it up, rub some dirt in it, and keep trucking along!

But for all of you who are way overdue for a holiday, or who just need a little reminder to keep on keepin' on and shinin' bright like a diamond, then this new series, called Flourish, might be one that you want to follow along!

I conceived this series out of my desire to create while simultaneously reminding myself, and you, of truths easily forgotten. My hope for this series is to encourage, uplift, motivate and rejuvenate your hearts with beautiful words. My hope is that no matter how short, simple or cliché the words may seem, that they will resonate with you on a personal and spiritual level as much as they resonate with my ever wandering heart. I promise not to use lame quotes, like "Live for the nights you'll never remember with the friends you'll never forget" or "Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today." Yeah, there will be none of that here.

Flourish means to be in a vigourous state; to thrive; to be successful; to prosper; to grow luxuriantly, or thrive in growth. This series aims to nourish an attitude and perspective to help us thrive, prosper, FLOURISH in life!

Flourish also happens to be a calligraphy term meaning beautifully, ornate embellishments, so I thought the two went hand in hand. It also happens that I am terrible at 'flourishing' when it comes to calligraphy, and frankly, I need the practice! But hopefully, in time, I will master flourishing, in a literal and metaphorical sense.

For the first Flourish piece, I used Numbers 6:24. It's an oldie but a goodie and I hope you feel the goodness of these words.

For those interested, I used the Pentel Sign brush pen. It's pretty magnificent of a pen, maybe even my new favourite.

I hope y'all crush the rest of your week!

xo, Mia
