"It's second nature to love you." 🎧 #NowPlaying I can't stop listening to Rainbow Kitten Surprise. Don't let their name fool you. Currently on repeat is Cold Love, Run, Lady Lie...oh hell, the whole album really. Such a fantastic fall soundtrack. What do you have on heavy rotation right now?

dearhandmadelife : Lovely sunset and I need to check out that band.
vozcollective : Lion Babe!
meigsotoole : @dearhandmadelife I can't stop listening to it!
meigsotoole : @vozcollective *adds to list* Thank you!

I got to hang out with @mimikirchner today and talk shop. Working in business for yourself it's so easy to keep your head down, nose to the grindstone, and forget to get out and be social. I thought about cancelling our coffee date today because I hurt my neck and honestly feel fucking crazy, but I knew the time talking about business and both offering and receiving support would breathe a whole bunch of life and inspiration into my week. Plus look at that view!
elingeling : Word + Yay! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ‘‹πŸΌ Sending fast healing thoughts your way.
meigsotoole : @elingeling πŸ‘‹πŸ»πŸ‘‹πŸ»πŸ‘‹πŸ» thank you! Dr's appt tomorrow! Never been so excited for a Dr's visit before! πŸ₯πŸ’‰
mimsue52 : Feel better soon.. ❀️
mimikirchner : It was great to hang out❀️ Hope the neck feels better soon.

"nobody cares about almost." - @elisejoy Sitting down to outline my goals for 4th quarter. Flipping through my #gettoworkbook and noticed this last page in the planner. Perfect reminder.

risafriedman : love the tins and chipped pink nails. (and the quote, of course.)
meigsotoole : @risafriedman ☺️
alexlouisa_ : Ohhhh I've been considering getting this one! I LOVE a great planner, and Elise is fantastic! (Plus my favourite one from this year has changed a bit for 2016 and it's broken my little heart a bit.)
meigsotoole : @alexlouisa_ I recommend it. I'm a real creature of habit so I understand your pain.

No #yearofmaking post today or quite possibly for a few days I hurt my neck real bad so have to keep the bending over things to a minimum. I wanted to share this pic tonight instead that I took today in Connecticut. You would not believe the prices on these birdhouses - $25, $35, and up. The older gentleman who makes them does them all by hand and all proceeds go to a charity to build homes for vets that have received the Purple Heart. I tried to talk him into getting a @square for his business (because I was so bummed I couldn't buy one - no cash and we were in the middle of the woods) so he could sell more and he was adamant about not making money. He said "no, all of that complicates things and costs me more. I have to keep my wages below a certain amount so I can donate everything." πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“ #goals

dearhandmadelife : Those birdhouses and the story behind them = β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ
lfader : How adorable!
mariglynn : Shut. Up. I want that green and yellow one!!!
youandmie : Oh no! 😱 Hope you're better and making again soon!!
pennyshima : Lovely story & speedy and complete recovery!
inkandindigo : Sweet! So sorry about your neck. Get ye to a chiropractor!
laughinggirl2 : What s wonderful man! Good for him.

danehorvath : Wow - love this!!!

maryomalleyart : Looks interesting! I love a good planner
emilyblistein : Thank you! I have never made it more than a few weeks with a planner. I tend toward rebellion with a schedule but love goals and dreams and truly want a way to capture them in my business life more efficiently. I'll take a look!
breaknremake : I got mine too! After using it for a few months we should check back in and see how each other likes it!

293/365 #yearofmaking: photoshopped quote. I spend a lot of time thinking about social media and how it helps people and how it makes them feel - both good, bad, and indifferent. Tonight I read a short but thoughtful blog post by Caterina Fake, co-founder of Flickr, Hunch, and Findery. It's called Social Peacocking and the Shadow. Look it up. She discusses how we've become immersed in this way of only showing oneself in a favorable light online - that it's become this "incomplete representation of a life, a half of a person, a fraction of the wholeness of a human being." I found it so thoughtful for many reasons, but in particular because it doesn't bash people for wanting to share the curated and the beautiful, instead it asks for a balance. I love that. I've been working on a blog post for over a month about the complications of social media and "sharing authentically". Fake's post has helped me flesh it out even more. ❀️

dakinistudios : Such an important topic! Looking forward to your blog.
ariane__k : Mmmmm yes yes yes, looking forward to your post, I'm super interested in this after my own adventures of showing both sides of my life and seeing the effects it's had.
nickyovitt : Looking forward to your article! A recent KQED Forum show had a guest that was taking about this in reference to the generations growing up online.
meigsotoole : @nickyovitt my niece just told me about "finsta" where (mainly) young girls create private IG accounts where they can post images of themselves crying or being real and honest and their public accounts are all for show and the opposite of their finsta. So fascinating to me.
leecrutchley : This sounds great, I'm going to check it out now.
kdmay28 : *adds "go find that post" to my list for the day*
kdmay28 : And it's a sentiment that fits in nicely with my own personal views. I LIKE seeing people's messy workspaces abd grainy photos of genuine emotions. When everything is too staged and too perfect, I end up unfollowing (if they're not a friend, that is).
estherdstanford : Very interesting. Can't wait to read your post.

Instagram turned 5 this week! I joined a few weeks after it launched and once I figured out what the app was about, I immediately fell in love with it. This is the first photo I took. I had no idea what the app did, so I took a selfie (at the time we didn't have a word for those! #selfie wouldn't be used until 6 weeks later on Instagram by @jennlee). I was totally confused that it posted my pic and that everybody could see it?! So wild. I couldn't wrap my head around it. A lot has changed in 5 yrs! HBD IG πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

craftyplanner : You're even more gorgeous!
meandblue : I keep refreshing my podcasts and hoping to hear from you soon ... 😘
sharonzjewelry : And I totally miss that sculpture down by civic center. One of the great works of temporary public art.
thegabfab : Love!
meigsotoole : @meandblue aww, that is so cool to hear. Soon! My next episode is with @cauchycomplete. It's a good one! I've just been overwhelmed with work and moving. Hoping to have it live by tomorrow.
meigsotoole : @sharonzjewelry I know that was such an incredible piece I remember being so sad when I learned it was temporary.
