pretty things

Dried herbs, floral blow dryers, and beautiful clothes. What's better than being around pretty things? In life, you'll always be subjected to things that don't appeal to your eyes. Take it upon yourself to surround yourself with beauty. And, when it's not possible to surround yourself with things that are beautiful, focus your attention on what's there that already is.


full of wonder

A little update to the Instagram photo I posted earlier today. It's not that everything is okay. It's not that everything is going to be wonderful. It's that everything already is wonderful. Because everything that is just is. And that, in and of itself, is wonderful.

That's what's up.



Yo. Tooootally forgot I had a blog. Just joshing.

But, guess what? I'm freaking burnt out. Are you burnt out? I feel like everyone is burnt out. Having a job is not easy. Living a life is not easy. Being 25 is not easy. But I guess it's not supposed to be. Life is weird.

I love my life. I really, seriously do. I love everyone in it. I have very much enjoyment. I wake up happy and I laugh every day, so many times a day. But I'm burnt out right now, and I have been for a few months. And it stinks.

I wanted to share some photos I've taken over the past month. If you read the Free People blog, you may have seen them, but here, I'm posting them in a different light. I'm not posting them to tell you how to make a beauty product or to list the benefits of a certain food or to give ideas about styling a piece of clothing.

I want us all to be able to look at these images for exactly what they are. Captured moments of beauty; snippits in time... with no real purpose other than to make us feel good when we look at them.

Sometimes, I wish my mind would stop moving so fast; that I could just sit back and admire everything that's around me. Like, really, truly admire it. To stop thinking and just feel.



Currently my favorite thing in my life right now. Holy cow, this dude is awesome. I could not be happier, nor could I feel luckier.


life & carrots

WHERE HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN? I mean, wait. Sorry. I haven't been here for a while. Life is crazy. I feel like so much has happened since the last time I posted! I have a ton of pictures from the Portland trip I took with my sister earlier this month, and I will certainly be posting those soon. Hope y'all are keeping it trill. For now, here's a picture of carrots and a necklace that I snapped at work today. Carrots and jewelry. Just a normal day in the life.


it's coming.

I don't want summer to end, but I can't say I'm mad at fall. It might just be my favorite season.
