life // april showers.

april showers //


have you ever felt so overwhelmed by the amount of things you needed to accomplish that when you’d sit down your brain would say “isn’t there something you should be doing right now?”.

that’s me.

full-time job + part-time weekend job + blogging + wedding planning + life. oh, and trying to get 8 hours of sleep.

thankfully I have an amazing fiancé, while I was on a coffee date with some local midwest bloggers this weekend, he was working on our wedding invitations, calling necessary vendors, and checking our guest list twice. he’s a saint.

busy is a good thing, don’t get me wrong. it’s just when you get too busy, you don’t have time to stop + smell the roses. to actually enjoy your life.

[*editor’s note: I am still smelling the roses. or at least waiting for may to bring them].

happy tuesday.


hello april.

the two best cures.

the two best cures //

I want to jump up & down: friday is here.

I recruited [J] to make chocolate chip pancakes tomorrow for breakfast. after I sleep in, make a large cup of coffee, and then spend the majority of my day in pajamas. it just sounds nice.

do you have any fun weekend plans?

maybe a bit more ambitious than mine.

regardless, I hope it is great.

see you on monday!

what I do.

{blog every day in may}:

if you couldn’t answer with your job, how would you answer the question, ‘what do you do’?

can I be frank? I hate this question. I have my entire life. regardless.

I’ve always preferred things to be a bit unexplainable. taking a “why not” approach to life. the answer to this question is no different. what do I do? if you asked me on the street, my answer would be “live the dream”. not because I do, but because I’ve found it the most effective way to avoid the question. in reality, I’m a work-in-progress. I [like so many people, at least that’s what I tell myself] am in search of my passion. constantly dreaming of what’s to come. and creating goals to make them real. I’m not defined by my full-time job, because frankly I don’t have one right now. and although it’d make answering this question a whole lot easier, I prefer hard to explain. and I’ve found in the past, although offering more stability, does not always provide happiness. every day is a new adventure for me. as long as I’m working hard & taking steps forward, I’m happy. I’ve always wanted to create my own path. and am so grateful for the chance.

whatever you do, do it well. give it your all. and don’t have regrets.


on that note, [J] & I are going to drop off a couple {not-so-dainty} orders at the post office. and have lunch!

happy monday.
