“The Gap”

March 4, 2015

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints…

Real Talk.

December 31, 2014

This is most likely a Currently post, only way more random and definitely not as organized. And there are no pictures to go along with these thoughts. Basically, this is me up at 3AM with random things on my mind and what better place to share them than here with all my stalkers, right? 😉 (Totally kidding.) (Hey, you know who you are.)  Well, we’re home. Like, in Nashville home. For longer than just a few days. We’re pretty much…

Merry Christmas!!

December 25, 2014

This is one of my favorite Christmas verses – every time I read it I want to jump up and give so much praise! If you read it slowly and focus on each line, there is so much comfort, promise, joy and hope it brings – for all the people. Amen!!! What a special day to be linking up with Anne for some wishing! I am wishing my best gal the happiest birthday today!! Mom, I hope it’s the best one…

Christmas Movie Favorites & Wednesday Wishes

December 3, 2014

I am a big fan of traditions, and not just during the holidays but year-round. However, I would have to say that my favorite traditions do revolve around Christmas. One of my favorites is watching Christmas movies, beginning the day after Thanksgiving up through Christmas Day. I am a huge movie lover and have quite a few Christmas movie favorites that I have to watch each year. I save these movies for this time specifically and will not watch them…

the everyday moments Wednesday Wishes

I’ll call this one “Granny Panties.” (Yes, this is for real.)

November 19, 2014

It’s funny, the little moments throughout your life that only highlight the fact that you’re either 1.) Turning into your mother or 2.) Getting old (and if we’re being honest here, sometimes it’s both). I don’t know what it is about 30, but as soon as life told me I had to claim that number for a year, those little moments have been happening more frequently. And it’s in those moments I haven’t figured out yet whether I should laugh…

Do it #fortheblog vlog Wednesday Wishes

A Thanksgiving Vlog.

November 14, 2014

Well, I did it. I Vlogged. Partly because I was harassed by Faith (kidding, I love her), and also because Cassie from Sage the Blog did it (which totally gave me some courage), but mostly because I couldn’t have the only Vlog I shared on EG have to do with dunking special edition Oreos in wine. (Amy, I can hear you now- why not?? And you would have a point.) I digress. So here we go…. and you all are…

A Bucket List

November 6, 2014

In all honesty, I never cared for the term “Bucket List.” Maybe it’s the whole “hurry up and do this before you die”/morbidity feel to the actual term, but the meaning and idea behind it holds a lot of importance. (I’ve yet to come up with a different name for it, and “Life Goals” or “My Life’s To-Do List” both sound too proper and pretty boring, so the search continues.) I really do love the idea though, how it encourages…

That one Halloween I got a baby brother.

October 29, 2014

I remember it like it was yesterday. It was Halloween evening, and there I sat under one of the kitchen bar stools, fully decked out in my costume, although I can’t tell you what kind of costume it was that year. I was not quite 3 at the time but I do remember this part, I do. I was hiding under the stool because I knew that a man would be ringing our doorbell any minute, and he would have…

A few more steps

October 22, 2014

Is this collage not the perfect visual for the different phases of fall?! Both of these pictures were actually taken on the same day, on the same street, just a few blocks apart. I’d come across the leaves in the bottom picture first, in which I began snapping away at because I just thought- if this doesn’t scream FALL I don’t know what does. After I took most likely 2398742 photos of the same scene, I declared my walk to…

Currently : Mornings Like This

October 15, 2014

Currently… Loving // Cleo, who so enjoys her mornings in the sunshine, always close by to where I am.  Listening to // Ben Howard, my newest music love.  Thinking about // my Grandpa. He’s been on my mind a lot the past few days, and sometimes I like to think it’s because he’s thinking about me too. Reading // about how to add Google Analytics to my blog. These are the days of our (blogger) lives.  Making // excuses as to why I…
