Things That Make Me Go :)

Despite getting very little sleep last night, I woke up with a smile on my face. Feeling like that's a pretty great reason for me to take a few moments to recognize the things that make me go :)

1. I created a Press page on the Erica Sara Designs website this week which could only mean one thing... I have press! Check it out!

2. My cousin was inspired to begin cycling again and joined dailymile this week to track her workouts and to find a community of cyclists. I was so excited to see her on board! Her post yesterday read "Short but sweet.. just around the neighborhood. Nothing impressive but I'm still beginning, I guess" to which I'd like to reply with this
3. I've been busy working on rings & some new necklaces in the studio and I've finally begun to put them online. I'm especially excited about the Drusy stones I'm working with. Only one drusy ring up so far but stay tuned for more rings and necklaces using these one of a kind stones! I'll also be adding the stackables with bezel set semi precious stones. See? Told you I've been busy.

4.  I went to a baby shower the other day, fully expecting that there'd be nothing vegetarian or gluten free to eat; I expected to starve. So I was happily surprised to find these delicious vegan & gluten free cookies made by my dear friend Vegan Pimp! Even better than that fact that they are yum is that they are so darn easy to make. Check em out here.

5. My big brother posted this video on facebook this week. It's beautiful; makes me think of some of the incredible people in this world who I'm lucky to consider my friends. I can't stop listening to it. Enjoy :)

6. My running mojo is back in full force. Even the crazy Spring hail storm couldn't keep me away from the pavement last night. Which, by the way, was insane. I would NOT recommend running in hail storms. It hurts! But back to my point. I'm feeling strong and am having a great time running the miles. And although I had slated 90 for the month of March, looks like it'll be more like 74 due to a pulled hamstring the other week. But compared to the 34 miles I ran last March? I'll take it!

I'm sure if I thought some more, I could come up with 20 more things to add to this list. But alas, I must grab my cup of joe and head to the studio to make pretty things.

What are the things that are making you go :) today? Please so share.
