life scraps.

So with one of my summer goals being to scrapbook the year of 2011, I thought it would be fun to share a few pages from my recently finished wedding scrapbook (I'm kind of a procrastinator—I'm working on it). I'll be sharing the progress of my 2011 scrapbook as I go, but until then I thought these would be fun to show off. I love being creative and crafty with scraps of memories! xo

summer goals.

The oh-so-inspiring Elsie has challenged her readers to create summer goals, so here's 10 of mine:
1. finish my summer reading list
2. successfully turn boring guest room into super fun craft room
3. make a 2011 scrapbook
4. own an 11" macbook air
5. blog once a day
6. develop a roll of film every week
7. get through all my home ec sewing projects
8. talk to all my close friends at least once a week
9. screen on the green!
10. find the time to experience more local live music

What are your summer goals? xo

to lala land and back.

I got to visit a good friend in LA over Memorial Day weekend, and I was able to experience so many new things! I biked from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Beach, tried Boba tea, watched an old movie in a cemetery, found stars on the Walk of Fame, toured Universal Studios, tasted some Yogurtland, ate a churro, drove on Rodeo, saw the tallest palm trees ever and the Hollywood sign! The perfect mini-cation.

building castles in the air.

It's been awhile, a month and ten days to be exact. I've been busy daydreaming. Daydreaming about who I've become and who I want to be. To be honest I've felt rather boring, working a lot and finding little to be inspired. But I've learned how to sew and I've overcome a fear of skiing. Small accomplishments I suppose, but for me it's a great way to start the new year. With January coming to a quick end, I saw the first of February as inspiration to get back into the swing of blogging. I realize I don't need inspiration to blog. Blogging inspires me. It inspires me to write and do projects and try new things and take more pictures. So here's to a year of all of the above. xo
