20 before 26 // finding inner peace

I’m 12 days away from turning 25. The last 12 days of my first quarter century. The next time I hit such a landmark, I’ll be turning 50. Gahh! Last year I posted my 25 before 25 goals, and I only completed 10 of them (I guess I still have 12 days to go…but something’s… Read more »

20 in 2015 // a reading challenge

I love reading challenges, and talking about them on the blog really helps me be successful. I can’t believe I read 24 books last year, and I know it was thanks to being held accountable here that I did it. I can’t remember the last time I read two books a month just for fun!… Read more »

Life Squared // December, 2014

December was an eventful month for me. Ilhan and I moved for the second time in three months, we got rain for the first time in forever (resulting in the most amazing sunsets), Ilhan and I went on more dates than usual, and I spent time planning and hermitting in preparation for 2015. December 02,… Read more »

24 in 2014 // Recap

Last January, I set a goal for myself that I’d read 24 books in 2014. I definitely stopped updating on here about it because I was doing so badly at finishing two books a month, but I miraculously pulled through and completed the challenge on December 31. Cutting it close lol. Mary Boleyn: Mistress of… Read more »

Skygram Weekly // 01

I’m super excited to start regularly sharing #SkygramWeekly on the blog! I introduced this hashtag back in November but totally didn’t follow through on it, but that is going to change. I am obsessed with the sky and I’m still really stoked on the idea of little windows of it from all over the world being… Read more »

24 in 2014 // what I’ve been reading lately

Well, I’m horribly behind in my 24 in 2014 challenge. Like atrociously. As of now, I’ve only completed 18/24 and I only have a month to read 6 books. Sooo we’ll see how that goes lol. I mean I haven’t totally lost hope…I can get through Harry Potter pretty quickly and I’ve only finished rereading… Read more »

Introducing #SkygramWeekly

I love the sky. It’s consistent and yet it’s never the same. We all share one sky and yet everyone’s portion of it is unique. Sunset is one of my favorite versions of the sky; the colors, the clouds, those last rays of sunshine leave me breathless. But I also love the fresh and crisp… Read more »

24 in 2014 // Month 8/9/?!?!

Ok. So I am so devastatingly behind with this 24 in 2014 series. It’s actually sad. I haven’t even finished my June list yet looooool. I somehow lost The Two Princes so it’s been literally impossible to finish ha. I just gave up on it and have since started my two books for July, but still…neither… Read more »
