It’s the Simple Things

Last week I posted about taking more pictures of day-to-day things and being more observant of little beauties that you don’t think of as special at first. This is one of the pictures I took that week, on a day where I just sat in my PJs and lounged. My mom makes some awesome chocolate (dark AND… Read more »

Currently Loving

The sky. It’s definitely my current most favorite thing. For some reason, I have lately been super conscious of how gigantic and vast it is…weird to think of how I’ve never paid attention before. The sky is something we’ve seen every day since we were born, but how often have you actually considered it? I… Read more »

This Week’s To-Do’s #4

Ok so can I just start off by saying how is this already the fourth week of posting to-do’s?! Where is all this time going?  Recap of last week’s to-do’s: Focus on seeing the beauty in each day and recording it with my camera. Did SO MUCH BETTER than usual! Could be better, but of course… Read more »


So I’ve been a little bit of an insomniac lately…not sure why, but I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back to sleep. Sometimes that is combined with not being able to fall asleep in the first place. Maybe it’s partly because it has been so unbearably hot here…I can’t… Read more »

This Week’s To-Do’s #2

I took this picture from the top of my driveway this past December or January. I for one HATE extreme heat and would rather have 20 degree weather than 90 degree weather any day. I can’t sleep when it’s too hot, I can’t be productive when it’s too hot…basically I can’t function properly when it’s… Read more »

Speaking of quilts…

In light of my recent post about the quilt show I went to with my mom, I thought I’d post some pictures of the quilt I’m working on. As I said in that post, I was really inspired after the show, and immediately started working on my own when we got home.  I haven’t worked… Read more »

I am tired.

I took this picture of our cat Greyboy a couple weeks ago and it basically depicts how I feel after this week. Haha. All I want to do right now is fall on the floor and go to sleep. What with studying for my exams tomorrow, working, meetings, and an all-day quilt convention with my… Read more »
