    The 70’s fashion pics are awful! I grew up in the 70’s and never ever once saw couples (or even individuals) dress like that! I was horrified and embarrassed for them! ha! That said, maybe my small part of the world didn’t include these kinds of people. Too funny.
    Thank you for the link to Jessica’s blog post. I find myself falling into this trap in my field. This gives me food for thought. Happy Friday!

    Laughed at the 70’s fashions. #2 could have been my husband and I! My hair, his beard and glasses and the Boston fern in a macrame hanger. Think I even had that jumpsuit!

    #1 is so wise and SO TRUE!! It’s a lovely compliment (one of the best!) when someone views your work as “buyable”. But it also carries with it the weight of monetizing every single thing and then having to fight feeling like a failure if it doesn’t work out. And when is it actually a success? Yeah. Wise words!

    (Still working my way through the rest of the fine links 😉 )
