Me & Hannah, photo courtesy the darling Solveig.

I'm so deliciously happy right now that I feel like bursting. I need to put it down somewhere, so I figured I'd share it with you here.


My friends keep being wonderful.

I just spent the weekend with some of my favorite people and even though there were some pretty painful moments, it was worth every second. Nothing beats breakfast potlucks and really, really good people. They're just the best.

My parents are just the nicest, most helpful, understanding, and just plain superb people.

I'm wearing a cardigan.

Wonderful people randomly start talking with me.

There are more reasons to smile every day.

Spring break is two measly weeks away.

We learned to waltz.

I keep having things to look forward to, every single week.

Nothing is drudgery, and it's all about your outlook.

Things are coming together, & even where they aren't, I'm okay with the unknown.

It's almost spring.

Kept promises are the sweetest.

I wore a huge red hairbow the other day (and I'm convinced that's why), and this guy walked by me, did a full spin right in front of me and smiled, and then kept walking. It was adorable.

Complaining is overrated.

Coffee is still one of my favorite things.

Cute boys saying, "When are we going to hang out again?" out of the blue make me smile like mad.

Classic things are always the best.

Sending love your way. I hope your week is full of wonder. What is making your heart beat a little faster right now?

we love colors

I'm featured today on the We Love Colors Style Blog! This is super flattering. This company makes such quality, durable tights that I adore. They were lovely enough to send me a pair of microfiber tights (featured in the post below), and they're not only really comfy and stretchy, but they're durable, too. I go through so many tights that it's nice to finally have a pair that feels like they'll last.

Real updates soon! We are working on making our first designs in my pattern class, and I have a bunch of process photos to show you. Hope your February is going well thus far!

Green & Yellow.

Hello. I am a Packers fan.

& we're going to win.

I've always been a Packers fan, but this fall, when I started college in Wisconsin & began to hang out with a bunch of guys who were hardcore fans, it became somewhat infectious. It's hard to not watch every game when that's how your buddies spend their Sunday afternoons, and pretty soon, it became my priority, too. So here we are, rooting for our team like it's nobody's business. We need this. GO PACK GO!
