friday

Processed with VSCOcam Oh….that thing when you find ridiculously gorgeous photos of where you used to live…Norway, you’ll always be Christmas for me. That was a tough Christmas away from home–Andrew and I’s first together–all alone in a country where we knew no one, didn’t speak the language, and it was only light out for a few hours a day. Yeah, that’s a beautiful sunset…at 2:00pm! Busy weekend ahead. I still have some shopping to do, teaching, book club on Saturday, and then a fun morning at lululemon on Sunday. If you’re into yoga and a local reader, I encourage you to check out this event! Hope to see you there! Have a good one.

thank goodness.

yeah, that’s people painting the Eiffel Tower. WHHHAAA? Found it in this amazing post of 40 rare, historical photos.

It’s been a long crazy week. Ready to relax. We’re getting all holiday this weekend…I’m making glogg, Andrew’s making caramels, and we’re going to do a purging of stuff at the house.

Was so happy to see All Songs Considered’s Year in Music discussion up in my podcast feed this morning. Listen now!

Oh Pinterest…I kind of have a love/hate relationship with you. Do I think you’re a wonderful source of inspiration and an easy way to share content?

Yes.

Do I think you’ve replaced magazines so that women (mostly) now have an instant, free way to feel incredibly inadequate on a daily basis?

Kinda.

Yep, Pinterest must be approached with a healthy dose of “I’m fine!” Here are my favorite accounts, mostly because they just post such beautiful photos of all kinds.

There are many more, but like many other posts this month, this is a day late! I need to get it together on my own challenge!

Synchronicity in my daily life? There’s a lot and I love it. Not a lot more I have to say about that at the moment…

It seemed like a good post idea at the time…

More later…

Just being honest…

Have a good weekend!

I love Instagram. Because I’ve already mentioned my favorite yoga accounts, I’m going to keep them off this list.

Food and drink being tossed up in the air. What’s not to love?!

Ok, so Louisville has a full size lululemon now. We have Anthropologie, Madewell, Lush, and Lucky’s Market. We’ve even got a Mellow Mushroom. I don’t care about any of that until we get a Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Their Instagram is beautiful, mouth-watering, and fascinating. Their website is also super pretty.

Laura Miller has a crazy voice, which you can hear on her videos, Raw, Vegan, Not Gross. But she also does daily portraits with produce.

The cutest feed you’ll ever see. The daily adventures of a basset hound that was born several months ago.

The prettiest cookies you’ll ever see.

Not a huge fan of fashion blog Instagram feeds that make everything look picture perfect all the time, but this one does it so well it gets my respect. Even better, she shows some of the behind the scenes stuff about how they get such perfect photos.

So there you have it. Of course there are many more, but that’s a good variety for now. Can’t believe how quick this November challenge is going! We’re almost halfway done!

Oops. Forgot to post yesterday.

Well, I can’t really say I forgot…I just didn’t. I had a wonderful weekend and yesterday was on a total roll “spring cleaning” the studio. Got out ladders, changed light bulbs, cleaned out drawers, etc. While cleaning, I found an official Olympic torch from the 2002 games in Salt Lake City…rolled up in a towel…

It has been there on the back counter for a few weeks and I figured it was something of Dad’s…which it is, he’s a making a case for it for a client. However, it was pretty funny to finally look in there and find it!

I’ll be back later with today’s theme–if I could live anywhere!

a few days at the beach

Thought I’d share some photos from our trip to Edisto Island, SC earlier this week. My family has been renting beach houses there since I was a kid. We all agree that we must have a house right on the beach and it must have wifi. Ha.

My parents, Kaylex and baby Graham, Andrew, and Lis all body surfing by day, doing jigsaw puzzles and iPad-ing by night. It was great fun and we even managed to fit in a trip to Tupelo Honey on our way back. Perfect.
