Gathered Links | 001

Happy Saturday, friends. I hope you have a lovely weekend planned. We're having a pretty quiet one, with friends coming over for dinner this evening, followed by church tomorrow. B is cooking this most amazing mango chicken in pitta breads recipe tonight - just the thought of it is making me hungry! 

I thought it would be fun to begin a weekly series here, where I collate some of the things that I've been enjoying or found to be an interesting or inspiring read. While I know this concept isn't a new one (in fact, it's often one of the things I love most about many others blogs I read), I hope you'll like it. I also hope it will stir me to read wider, ponder more and to seek more inspiration from those awesome people around me.

While winter lingers on, my heart is very much dreaming of summer. This time of reflection, of hibernating and of waiting is a time when I feel eager to fine tune my habits, throwing off the things which have previously held me back. While all I really want at this time of year is to hunker down under my thick, wooly blanket; I want to use this time to grow, to plan and to seek inspiration for the more fruitful (and warm) seasons which lie ahead.

+  This essay, on the meaning of light was illuminating. (Boom, boom.)

+ Still within the Kinfolk family, this ode to summer has lit a spark in me. One which craves longer, lighter days.

New Year, New Light. 

Make a better bed time routine. A constant battle, but one I'm determined to nail.

+ I can't get enough of this Air album. On oldie, but a goodie. 

+ Spend more time.

+ This book has me dreaming of bright and creative gatherings (although the French is a little challenging!)

+ Do your thing.

Have you read anything that's inspired you this week? I'd love to read them - feel free to pop them in the comments below, or tweet me
