Dear brain…

Sometimes I get too stuck in my own head to see what’s really going on around  me. Does anyone else feel this way? I kept repeating this phrase in my head today & I had to get it out somehow. So, I made this! I feel (a little) better now.

P.S. My first version had a few expletives in it. I opted for the “clean” version. Hah!

Just a little Saturday afternoon inspiration.

It’s getting cold here, you guys. I’ve finally broken down & turned the heat on (hmmph!). Since it’s simply too cold to do anything outside, I’m spending my Saturday afternoon on the couch watching soccer with the boy (he’s kind of obsessed) & the puppy & lots of blankets. While I’m here, I figured I might as well share a couple images & products I’ve found particularly inspiring over the past week. An inspiration dump, if you will. Hope you enjoy!

As a typography & a wine enthusiast, I am swooning over this print.

I am inspired by this beautiful workspace. Found via pinterest. (I’m not sure of the original author of this photo – if you know, tell me!)

This stunning 18kt dragonfly wing is so lovely & dainty. Unfortunately, it is much too far out of my price range.
So, I’m posting it here– which is the next best thing to buying it, I suppose.

I want this coffee cozie. Unfortunately, it’s sold out. Hopefully the owner of the shop will be making more shortly!

Well, I suppose that will do for now. Feel free to leave a comment giving me links to pretty pictures, products, etc! I love inspiration & can’t get enough!

Inspiring Quotes: “Hope is the thing with feathers”

{via Ben Javins}

“Hope”, by Emily Dickinson

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I’ve heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.


This is my absolute favorite poem by Emily Dickinson. Especially that first line. To me, it’s perfection.
