you know that first spring day where you realize you’re free and life is okay? (or maybe you’re like who is this weirdo and why does she always talk about the weather and her moods?) yeah that totally happened to me this month and it’s been amazing. happy spring, friends! xo
wearing skirts all the time because once it peaks 60 you can bet I’ll only be wearing skirts until September
love love loving this article
trying to get rid of a lot of stuff
floating for days from a lovely compliment (don’t you just love those? the ones that linger for days and inspire you to reach higher!)
savoring walks and bike rides
watching Downton Abbey like it’s my job and having my heart ripped out and stomped on (yes, I’m way behind the times, I like it that way. Yes, I get emotionally attached to good stories. Yes, I love talking about good stories. Can we talk about how much I love Maggie Smith?!)
loving Louisville in the spring (people are so friendly here, especially at grocery stores. I just love it. And it’s beautiful. Everything is white and pink and purple and green. Everything is okay in the spring.)
having a Tom Hanks summer movie marathon (we kind of already started the marathon pre-summer with two down already!)
planning a free, simple summer in the city (at least, I like to think that being an adult in the summer and a spouse taking summer classes is simple and free.)
crying over the last episode of Sherlock
living off of tomato soup and rice
writing to my pen pal
this is the most beautiful read I’ve had in a while
satisfying my love for lambs through this feed (can I even tell you about my love for lambs?! now I just need a good bunny rabbit feed! any suggestions?)
consuming chocolate like a crazy woman
wishing I could buy all the yarn
hibernating on the weekends
stay warm friends, xoxo
treasuring the last weeks being able to talk with Andy for a long time before he tucks me in bed
finding every morning we have a really comfy bed
appreciating this post
so inspired by this woman to get moving this month
failing miserably at my 30 self portrait photography goal
but keeping up with my other January goals
finding the need to write, to put pen to paper
after hearing the quote “All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.” by Ernest Hemingway
it clicked in me and I haven’t stopped since
looking forward to more quiet January days with my love
I’ve wanted to have a front yard garden for some time now, but this article makes me even more excited to have one some day.
knitting til my fingers hurt
coming home to fried rice, a smiling husband, and a candle lit
This week was perfect.
Finishing crafts that I started last year.
Buying all the cinnamon whisks at Trader Joe’s.
Sending happy mail.
Throwing knitting needles across the room because it’s really, really hard.
Looking at pretty things I want to make so I don’t give up.
Decorating with my love.
Going on lots of walks.
Spending time with friends.
Wishing Andy could make fried rice every single night.
Eating all the chocolate.
Happy 1st day of December. I hope your month is merry and bright.
meal planning for Christmas
perfecting pancakes on Saturdays
learning to knit
planning a perfect Christmas present
always cooking in a cast iron skillet that was Andy’s great-grandmother’s
wanting big, comfy socks
listening to Dr. Bruce Ware teach theology
savoring dark chocolate often
stepping on lots of colored leaves during bright November walks
realizing I need to start thinking about the new year
walking for my commute
realizing this must be a secret to life
piling on the blankets
sleeping in a little more each day to enjoy the cold coming through the open window
listening to books
dying to ride my bike every day
studying for my last New Testament test
constantly putting books on hold at the library
playing the piano every chance I get
feeling energized by fall
dreaming of a day with nothing in it
wearing gloves often
looking forward to Andy actually being off work for a few weekends
petting caramel, curly-haired dogs
devouring good books
watching a beaver leisurely walk through a front yard in the middle of the city
cancelling Netflix and
listening to the Harry Potter series
savoring Coffee Crisps and maple cookies from Canada
playing the piano (after a fairly long break from the piano I can all of a sudden play and sing at the same time!)
walking slowly in the evening summer breezes
longing for more freshly ground wheat pancakes shared with friends
scoring amazing free finds
hooked for life on audio books
hearing Andy say “I’ve been reading fashion magazines…stop laughing…it’s for my job!”
enjoying life with my best friend
