My Lush Haul

purple, blue, yellow, pink |

I miss shopping! Since getting pregnant I've yet felt good enough/had enough energy to do much shopping. I drag myself to the grocery store on my best days but even target escapes my reach.

Colorful Popcorn


I was at a store a few days ago and saw the most marvelous snack. Colorful popcorn!! I love popcorn and you all know how much I love color. This snack was perfect!! I love looking at it so much.

Hazy Anger and confusion


I didn't post yesterday. I didn't forget. I just didn't want to. I'm in a funk. I don't feel like myself. I don't know why. Nothing has changed. My life is amazing. I have so many blessing and very few trials. Maybe I'm just being a brat. Maybe I need a change of pace. Maybe Chicago will fix me. … [Read more...]

Story time, it begins again


It's been five days since I've started this blog; this is my fifth post. I think it's going okay. It's been super random at times, but that's kinda the point. I've enjoyed sharing my thoughts and memories as they pop into my head. It's inspired me. I think I want to start writing short stories … [Read more...]

Purple Grandma


Thanks to the memory of my Grandmother, one of the most treasured people in my life, I know that my favorite color as a child was purple. Because of that my answer to the often asked, "What's your favorite color?" question is always PURPLE. I love it. It makes my heart smile. It reminds me of my … [Read more...]
