I'm so thrilled about the responses I received from you all in regards to this link-up. Most of you love it, and most of you receive response from other bloggers and readers from this link-up, which is the MAIN goal of this space: community.

I think for next week, we can focus on a theme that we can give our "current" thoughts on. How about:

currently fall

For this week, we're going to stick with what we've done in the past. And please don't forget: comment on the blog post directly above yours as a way to continue the conversation between each other.

And the WINNER of the Starbucks $10 gift card?! Chosen by random.org, it is Jennifer! I will be emailing you, so please be on the lookout!

Welcome to Currently, where we share with each other what we are Currently up to and let you share your post through the link-up below. We love this link-up, where we can make new friends and build community. Join us.

Thinking about // How incredibly grateful I am for each and every one of you. You put in the effort where you didn't need to, and I truly appreciate you taking the time to give me encouraging words, your honest opinions, and thoughts about this link up and this space. It means so much to me to have you here.

Thankful for // Women who work hard at being encouraging, who work hard at their vocation, who work hard at being creative and listening to the voice that directs that at where to go. Women like you who buckle up your bootstraps every day and do this thing. I'm thankful for you. And how much you inspire me.

Enjoying // I've recently stumbled on Tabitha's blog, Fresh Mommy Blog, and fell in love with her concept for #PROJECTlipstick. It's so awesome! Here's her explanation for this campaign:

With #PROJECTlipstick, we wanted to create a community for women to encourage each other, a place for us to celebrate beauty… the natural beauty that radiates from within and makes us shine on the outside… We’re just giving it a little nudge! So celebrate your inner beauty with us and spark your outer confidence in this fun campaign we hope will inspire courage and a bit of charm in your everyday.

Photographing // So, of course, I had to snap a photo when I gave in to the #PROJECTlipstick love. I seriously become a totally different person when I actually get dressed in the morning and put lipstick on. I feel fresh, I feel special, I feel like I can conquer the world.

Loving // These sweet babes that keep me smiling all the days long (when I'm not frustrated as all get out that I have to say "Please put your shoes on." for the fiftieth time). They. are. everything. (And of course, I'm missing the sweetest baby of all, but she was napping for this picture, and yay for naps!)

Of course, I have to give a huge shout-out to my co-host today, Kristen of When at Home. She is such a sweet, sweet friend -- and I get to meet her in less than two weeks!! I'm sooo excited :) If you haven't seen her lip-synch before, because that's a totally normal thing that you would see, here is her amazeballs video:
