earth and time.

happy monday.
i hope you had a lovely weekend.
earth day was certainly earthy over here.
we spent our time loving the beautiful weather outside.
of course we had homework, so why not take it outside and do it at a park?
genius idea, i tell you.
we are surrounded by national parks and there's no charge to enjoy them.
{thanks to earth day}
we just may have to take a trip to yosemite.
nothing beats the beauty of that place.

life is hectic right now.
if i could only slow it all down, add an extra hour to the day
or put everything on hold and concentrate on one thing at a time...
now, that's what i call blissful living.
if that were the case, it may actually feel like i am living a real life,
rather than feeling like i am in fast forward motion;
blinking and wondering how i say hello and goodbye
to the same day in a single sentence.

all this to say, i am looking forward for that moment when
life will suddenly slow down.
{it will, won't it?}
for me, it will be at the close of my ballet season and
after the end of the this semester.
{just a few more weeks. i can make it.}
maybe then, will be have time to explore all the beautiful
national parks we live so close to.
and maybe then, will the days feel like they pass me by one by one.

cheers to the start of a new week!
may the days pass slowly enough to enjoy them-
yet quick enough to get through them.
if you know what i mean.


  1. I love this outfit! Where are your shoes from?
    Hang in there girl! You can make it!

  2. I love tha blue and red together! I wore a similar color blue shirt to church yesterday with a pink skirt.
    I feel the same way about life flying by. Sometimes I just want to yell "STOP!" Thanks for your sweet words about me wearing the green dress. Since you suggested it, I'll try to look for more clothes in that color green next time I'm shopping :)
    Happy Monday, friend.


  3. you look lovely and that is all :)
    hope life slows down a bit for you. the weather is finally warming up and i would love to not be working and to be able to spend it outside a little bit more!

  4. I loveee the retro look of your outfit! And how could you ever go wrong with a top knot? ;)

  5. I'm all about adding an extra hour to the day, as long as I could use it sleeping! I think you're right, with spring comes crazy hectic schedules. Why is this?

  6. aw, you look gorgeous girl! happy earth day!
    and here's hoping your busy schedules slow down soon so you can enjoy and take lots of pictures at these beautiful national parks you were talking about :)

  16. From November until like March, my life was just busy busy busy and I didn't think I was going to make. I found myself looking forward to being able to sit down and just watch a movie. I even planned out what my first movie was going to be...I survived with my sanity still intact...which was surprising.

    Love your style :)

  17. You belong in a magazine! You are amazing girl! Hope you get a little breather at some point... at least go to the hot tub! (: Love ya!

  18. dear carl. I love you and am happy for you.
