No More Confused Burrito

It is T-7 days until I enter a new decade of my life. And then I will be 30.

I’m actually kind of excited. One of the reasons is that lately, I have been feeling happier, more focused and more centered than I perhaps ever have in my life.

Day 68 - Me

Today another one of my friends turned 30, and she asked a question yesterday on Facebook that has gotten a tidal wave of comments. Her question was this:

This is the last day of my 20’s, and all day I will be reflecting over the insane amount of growth that occurs between the eve of turning 20 and the eve of turning 30. Tell me something interesting you learned from your 20’s. It doesn’t have to be the most important thing (but it could be!) or the most useful advice (but it could be that, too!). It could be deep. It could be irreverent. But tell me all the same. 🙂

Things I Love Thursday | Green Things

These random 40-degree days and heavy storms have gotten a rumbling going.

It’s almost I feel like the roots stirring underground, and the seeds quaking with waking seedling tendrils inside.

I can’t wait for spring. I’m going to run around the newly budding forests and take as many pictures as my wee camera will hold.

Until spring officially springs, though, let’s dream of green things.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 72 | Messy

Day 72 - Messy

Day 72 of the 365 photo challenge is “Messy.” This old board has been getting covered in paint for the last 15 years. It is quite the colorful mess.

Style Search | Snow Day

Tuesday was a wonderful day. School was cancelled for the hubby bear, and my boss called me when I was about to walk out the door to tell me that I didn’t need to brave the snow for my 30-mile commute down to the city. Huzzah!

Style Search | Snow Day

Funny, because this is one of the only days I was all dressed up pretty for work. That is because, as I promised Kaylah (otherwise known as The Dainty Squid) in my Blog Crushes & Resolutions post on Monday, I totally managed to get out for a photo shoot this morning! And I even had Papa Bear to help! Best of all, we managed to capture the pure essence of both the Clear Winter and Cool Winter seasons in these photos.

It was a stunningly beautiful, if cold morning, and I headed into the woods to be a winter fairy.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 61 | Whimsical

Day 61 - Whimsical

Day 61 of the 365 photo challenge is “Whimsical.” Yes, you may recognize that rainbow as the dress from our engagement photos! It is by far the most whimsical thing that I own. Unfortunately, it came out a bit blurry. I think I may have to recreate this one for a new profile photo for everything. Because my best colors are ALL OF THEM TOGETHER.
