I’m feeling vulnerable today. ⠀

Sometimes it’s just so hard to shut my brain off and that can lead to utter exhaustion.⠀

I will tell you that I’m thankful I will be camping in a few days and I can catch up with myself; lay on a beach and sit by a campfire. I need that. ⠀

Despite my mood, I hope you all are having a peaceful Saturday. ⠀

✌🏻

“It was rather beautiful: the way he put her insecurities to sleep. The way he dove into her eyes and starved all the fears and tasted all the dreams she kept coiled beneath her bones.”⠀

Have a beautiful, peaceful Sunday. ⠀

Helllllllllo Everyone! Happy Sunday. ⠀

I’ve been spending my time outside in the newly warm weather gardening and re-designing my blog. I will say that redoing my blog hasn’t been the easiest process...but it’s coming along! ⠀

My main priorities this week are:⠀

1) Start a regular meditation schedule.⠀
2) Purchase “War Storm”.⠀
3) Plant my garden.⠀

I’ll leave you with a quote that really helped me this week. ⠀

“I've learned that if someone threatens my peace of mind, self-respect, or self-worth... I must walk away. I owe it to myself... I owe it to my future.”⠀

I'm back!

I've had a lot of things going on these past couple weeks which left me feeling very unmotivated.
How has everyone been?? Any good book recommendations?

The cold weather is finally breaking here, so maybe I will be able to do some seed starting and actually get OUTSIDE!
I'm feeling soooooo cooped up. .

Hello little book 🐝’s!⠀

I've just started The Raven King (no spoilers please!) =) ⠀
This series has gone by so quickly and I wish there was more! There will probably be a book review of this series in the future, I feel like it's unlike anything I've read before, which is a good thing. ⠀

I'll probably read Scythe next. I've heard good things. ⠀

How has everyone's weekend been? We are getting a dose of sunshine today which I hope leads to warmer and warmer weather. Come on Spring!⠀

“Humans were so circular; they lived the same slow cycles of joy and misery over and over, never learning. Every lesson in the universe had to be taught billions of times, and it never stuck.⠀

Maybe it was good that the world forgot every lesson, every good and bad memory, every triumph and failure, all of it dying with each generation. Perhaps this cultural amnesia spared them all. Perhaps if they remembered everything, hope would die instead.”⠀

I just started The Raven Boys and I think I’m going to really like it. I’m only 3 chapters in though so I’ll let ya know when I’ve made more of a dent. ⠀

Monday is for organizing this week. I put all my clean clothes away and picked some things out to give to charity. I’m starting spring cleaning early. 💐

I’m back! After about a week of feeling absolutely defeated about creativity and life in general, I’ve decided it’s time to be social again. ⠀

No worries, it’s just this seasonal depression. I can’t wait for sunshine and warmth and neither can my animals, let me tell ya. ⠀

Anyhoo. I’m currently in the middle of playing “interior designer” to my living room. I’ve been putting up plants and just creating a sunny, growing, ambiance. I’ve even purchased a tray to grow some micro greens in the window. I already love it. ☀️ .⠀

Good Morning, lovelies. ⠀

Coffee and Curling has been what my morning has consisted of. Yes, Curling. ⠀

I absolutely love the Olympics. I'm a dork like that. ⠀

Our first camping trip has been booked in June so now I have a summer trip to look forward too. I can't wait for it to be warm again. ⠀

We are smack dab in the middle of a giant snowstorm. I'm thinking that we will have a foot of snow by the time it's all over. ⠀

I took Seger the Pup out to play fetch and he was just the happiest pooch. He lives for the snow. Speaking of animals, I would love it if you guys would check out the hshv site I've listed in my profile. This is my fundraising page for the annual "Walk & Wag". All your donations go to benefit animals and every donation, no matter how small, helps so much. All animals deserve their best chance. 🐶 💜 🐱

Do you guys have any adventurous plans this weekend? ⠀
I think I may be a snow hermit and do some baking. Maybe cupcakes? ⠀

I just started reading the illustrated version of Prisoner of Azkaban. It's always refreshing to be back into the Wizarding World. ⚡️

I need sunlight. ⠀
I'm usually a lover of wintertime, but seasonal depression is really getting to me this year. I'm ready for flowers, hammocks, and camping season. ⛺️

It's a snowy Super Bowl Sunday that is going to be filled with fridge pickle making, sorting out some recipes I want to do for the blog, and Harry Potter in the background. Yes, please. I’m feeling a bit under the weather so it’s a chill day. ⠀
Oh yeah, and probably some football in there somewhere. ⠀

One would think it was spring in the MIdwest yesterday, but nope, it is now snowy and cold.⠀

We took Seger on an early afternoon walk and the lighting was amazing. 📷

Anyways, I'm browsing through the Society 6 website and there is just sooooooo much I want to buy. There is an adorable black cat world domination print that suits my life really well. 🐱
Side note: I’m obsessed with the new design app that @acolorstory released. A new fav. 🎨

A collage of my Sunday morning. ⠀

I watched the sunrise with a cup of delicious coffee and my homemade raspberry buns (recipe will be up on the blog soon).⠀🍶

I'm longing for spring so I've started planning out the flowers and veggies I want to plant. Does anyone else do this? 🌿

Have a peaceful Sunday, lovelies. ✌🏻

I'm in a reading lull. I should start reading Tower of Dawn but I can't find the motivation. Winter weather is really getting to me these past few weeks...all I want to do is sleep.
My boyfriend is reading the Lord of the RIngs for like the thousandth time...maybe I'll start reading my illustrated version of Prisoner of Azkaban.
I don't know, I'm just brainstorming.
Anyhoo....I hope you all have a great rest of your day. I'm going to go have a meditation session. .

Good Morning, my little raindrops. 🌧️
It’s a soggy one in Michigan today and I have to say that I don’t mind. ⠀

I’m going to do a bit of baking and maybe some photography......and maybe get a little Sims in. It’s going to be a productive morning. 🤓

We are also going to start prepping our bathroom today to paint....wish me luck! 🎨

“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!”⠀

-Sherlock Holmes ⠀

I've had a semi-productive Monday. So far I've.....cleaned the microwave, started my Kombucha over again, cleaned the kitchen, put away all of our leftover Christmas decor, and dried some oranges or potpourri. Oh! and I've almost finished my laundry. ⠀

Yay for being motivated. ⠀

Now I think I'm going to make some hot tea, watch YouTube videos, and get sucked into the world of Pinterest.⠀

Happy Thursday!⠀

This little gem was delivered to me a few days ago. I really want to start learning calligraphy and the piano this year. Tomorrow we are taking a trip into the city to visit @johnkingbooksdetroit ....it's a huge used books store and I'm going to see if they have some used piano tutorial books. Sounds like a good plan to me.⠀

I'll let you guys know how this book is once I get into it. ⠀

How's everyone's day going? I'm currently sat at home, waiting for the furnace repairman to show up. Fun!⠀

Motivational Monday:⠀

“I shall be telling this with a sigh⠀
Somewhere ages and ages hence:⠀
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—⠀
I took the one less traveled by,⠀
And that has made all the difference.”⠀


My new website is finally done and up! I’ve been working on it for over a month....maybe even more than that. ⠀

I’m really happy with it and can’t wait to create more content to put up. ⠀

My photography post about my trip south is up on there so go over and take a look....maybe say hi! ⠀

The link is up in my bio. ☝🏻 💕

I'm sipping coffee and re-watching Victoria before the next season starts. It's such a good show! How can you not have a crush on Tom Hughes after watching it?⠀

I’ll start the last day of the year with a passage from my favorite poem. I hope you all can celebrate the end of 2017 with peace and happiness in your heart. For 2018, I have yet to think about what I want to accomplish but I’ll let you know when I figure it out. ✌🏻

“So was I once myself a swinger of birches. ⠀
And so I dream of going back to be. ⠀
It's when I'm weary of considerations, ⠀
And life is too much like a pathless wood ⠀
Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs ⠀
Broken across it, and one eye is weeping ⠀
From a twig's having lashed across it open. ⠀
I'd like to get away from earth awhile ⠀
And then come back to it and begin over. ⠀
May no fate willfully misunderstand me ⠀
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away ⠀
Not to return. Earth's the right place for love: ⠀
I don't know where it's likely to go better. ⠀
I'd like to go by climbing a birch tree, ⠀
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk⠀
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more, ⠀
But dipped its top and set me down again. ⠀
That would be good both going and coming back. ⠀
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.”⠀

A glimpse into my Saturday. ⠀
Not pictured: A large black cat sharing the blanket and couch with me. ⠀

I had a lovely night last night seeing old friends that I’ve missed sooooo much. ⠀

I hope you all have a lovely day no matter what you celebrate. 🎉

Merry Christmas Eve, snowflakes! ❄️

I’ve had a very classic Eve so far. I’ve wrapped presents, made sugar cookie dough (which is now chilling in the fridge), drank a hot chocolate, and watched a holiday movie. ☕️

Also, it’s snowing. It’s like a movie. I’m thoroughly planning on lighting the fireplace and watch Harry Potter.....or Star Wars. Festive, I know. ⠀
I hope you all have a relaxing, cozy evening. ⠀

I’m such a sucker for neutral Christmas decor. ⠀

The agenda for tonight is to watch “What If”. I’ve been wanting to watch it for so long and after seeing it randomly, I’ve decided it’s time. 🎥

Wild Friday night, huh? ⠀

“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.”⠀
-Charles Dickens⠀

What a literary genius. ⠀

Happy Winter Solstice! 🎄

Hello, hello, hello. ⠀

All the snow has melted! 10 inches and now nothing. Crazy weather. I guess we won’t have a white Christmas after all. 😔

We are going to see Star Wars this afternoon. What’s everyone’s opinion if you’ve seen it? Good? Bad? ⭐️

I just received The Winners Curse and The Winners Kiss in the mail. I’m going to get started tonight. 👑

Happy Tuesday, Snowflakes. ⠀

⠀⠀
Part 1 of my trip in the Appalachian mountains. We found a beautiful little path with wooden stairs and a wooden bridge that I just couldn’t resist taking pictures at. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
And yup, these shoes are the best. I used to have a pair just like them when I was really little. ⠀⠀

My Sunday is going to be filled with trying to figure out gifts for everyone. Less than a week left! ⠀

I love Amazon this time of year because it seems like every book on my wish list goes on sale. ⠀

I think I may start sharing my Virginia photos on here. I just have to figure out how to fit them in with my book photos. ⠀
Nature theme here we come, lol.⠀

Anyhoo, I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday. ❄️

I’m finally home! And, I came home to a snow covered Michigan. Winter has finally arrived in the Midwest....we are expecting 6 to 8 more inches. ❄️

My drive took about 8 hours so I listened to my first audible book. I’m normally not a fan of listening to a novel but I loved it! It made my drive so much better. I highly recommend it. ⠀

I listened to “The Winners Curse” and I’m hooked. I’ve already ordered the next book in the series. I’m shocked that I never heard of this series before now. ⠀

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday. I’ll be enjoying the cozy snow. ⛄️

I’m just attempting to get packed for my next few days in Virginia. ⠀

My goal is to try and listen to a book on my way there or my way back. I’ve never listened to a book before so who knows if I’ll actually like it. What is your guys opinion in listening to books instead of reading them? ⠀

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ⠀

Current Moon Phase: 🌖 Waning Gibbous 85% ⠀

I didn't get much sleep last night so a nap may be in my future soon. ⠀

But I think I may watch GOTG #2 since I just saw it on Netflix. ⠀

Have a good day, Snowflakes. ❄️

One of my dreams growing up was to have that old skeleton key to a secret garden. ⠀

Not much has changed. 🌳❄️🌲

I like white. Ha!⠀

Hellllllo little snowflakes. ⠀

I'm itching for snow. Some people think I'm crazy but I live in Michigan and I loooooove snow. ⠀

I'm leaving for a solo road trip to visit a friend this Friday in Virginia so that will be fun. I'll have to share my adventure on my insta-story. ⠀

Does anyone have any good cookie recipes? ⠀
I'm really in the mood to start baking for the holidays. ⠀

I’m currently watching Elf for the first time. I know, I know. Unbelievable right? ⠀

What is everyone’s favorite holiday film???⠀

Mine is either Christmas Vacation or A Muppet Christmas Carol. 🎄

Evening!⠀

I think the quote should speak for itself in this one. ⠀

I'm trying to meal plan at the moment and I'm feeling very unmotivated. We've told ourselves that we need to start cooking more because we are soooooo bad when it comes to eating out. ⠀

My urge to start Tower of Dawn may have something to do with that. ⠀

And, I have a fluffy cat sitting next to me who wants attention. ⠀

Have a relaxing and peaceful night my snowflakes. ❄️

It’s Monday and my feet are freezing. Why are my feet so coooooold?⠀
Sorry. I’m ranting.⠀

How are all you lovely peeps doing today???⠀

I’ve had a laid back day at work and then I got to finally have lunch with one of my long lost besties so I have no complaints besides my feet being cold. 😝

Tower of Dawn has officially been ordered and should be here on Thursday. So that will probably be my next read. 📚

“I mark the hours, every one, Nor have I yet outrun the Sun. My use and value, unto you, are gauged by what you have to do.”⠀

It’s been a Harry Potter night for me. ⠀
The time turner has always been my number one thing I wish I could have in real life. Oh the things I could do if I could turn back time. ⠀

Have a lovely night, my snowflakes. ⠀

If you are fellow American, Happy Thanksgiving! 🍁

I hope you all have something to be thankful for. ⠀

I’m currently driving to my Grandparents with a dozen donuts and I can’t wait to have my first cup of coffee. ☕️
