As I was gathering inspiration for a new post, I noticed that I was picking photos with a similar color palette.  I do that with thrifting as well; I come home with all blue finds. Funny how that works. 
I am taking a bit of a hiatus - perhaps only a few days, maybe a few weeks - to sort out what I want from this blog. Right now I feel like it's going every which way and a part of me wants to be more organized. Perhaps more personal posts rather than inspiration? More writing? I think my number one reason is to create better relationships and community with all you e-peeps. I'd love to hear your honest thoughts. What could change on this blog? What would you like to see more/less of? For now, I leave you with pretty pictures!

I guess you could say that these images somewhat portray what I hope my future years will be like. I think sometimes on blogs you can get so caught up in the 'ooooooo what a great life!' and 'ooooo la la look at all of their STUFF' but it's nice to come across some real, simple-livin folks.

Here are a few of my favorite: Kinfolk, Virginia Sioux Louise, Apple a Day, Andrew and Carissa

a bit of inspiration

this weekend my family and phil went down to my sister's graduation in loma linda. she' s now a dentist (like my dad!). this summer is full of graduations, weddings, and trips (russia + sweden!), so it's going to be a bit busy. also, my boy got a job at my most FAVORITE cafe ever, sally loo's. if you know me well and you ask what I'm craving, the answer will always be an acai bowl and iced vanilla latte. anywhoooo. . .
