Today I’m excited to share an interview with Emily Jeffords: artist, blogger, mom, and all-around amazing lady that she is!

Read on to see why I’m so crazy about this hard-working artist who’s taking over the world.

… and also why my new motto might just be, “another cup of coffee and a lot of grace.”

Small business diaries // Bree of Capitol Romance

an interview with bree of capitol romance // a thousand threads
For some time now, I’ve wanted to start talking to all of you about the process of starting a small business, partly because this little blog has become a small business of its own, but also because soon I’ll have another slightly bigger business to talk to you all about.

In this new series, titled “Small business diaries,” I’ll interview some of my favorite small businesses, share tips, and throw some of my very own diary entries into the mix… because a lot of the process is fun and games, but a whole lot is also not (Mark and I are trudging through some seriously un-fun stuff right now). And whether you have your own small business dreams, or you just enjoy hearing about the day to day, I want to give you the real stuff… the whole story.

The story that sometimes means working 3-4 jobs like this lovely lady here… who runs one of the coolest businesses (the coolest business?) in DC. But also the story that brings a sense of community and satisfaction like no other around… and the story we wouldn’t give up for the world.

I can’t wait for you to get to know Bree and her story below — and when you’re done, be sure to check out her amazing new workshops. I so needed one of these when I was planning my wedding — frankly I’m jealous of you brides out there who get to go.

Alfred Morris and Mason Crosby Talk Home Fitness

As part of a new partnership with Lenovo that launches today, I had the chance to ask two pro football players about their off-season workouts. Here, Alfred Morris, of our own Washington Redskins, and Mason Crosby of the Green Bay Packers have some tips for how to fit exercise into your routine at home.

Football fan or no, I think you’ll find them useful. I especially love to hear that Mason is a fan of yoga, since I know that, personally, I couldn’t get by without it.

How do you fit exercise into your day to day life?

P.S. Questions about my new partnership? Let me know! Just rest assured, I won’t be posting anything here that I don’t love 100 percent, and you shouldn’t expect any new sales-y content. Just me, like always… with a little extra help and opportunity.
