learning little lessons.

a {small} list of a few things i've learned in the last week:
1. lovebird loves pumpkin pie more than i do. i didn't think that was possible.
2. although i wear little of it, i'm obsessed with makeup.
3. my extreme phobia of throwing up, isn't any less when dealing with puppy vomit. bummer.
4. if you're looking to boost your self esteem, don't put on a leotard and tights after a four day weekend of pigging out on mash potatoes, pie and well... basically anything in sight.
5. yellow is a gorgeous fall color and makes me feel spoiled when walking around campus. {picture}
6. i am still capable of staying up past midnight and proved myself this weekend. however, i'll take a bedtime of no later than 10pm any day of the week. i am one who only functions with antiquate sleep.
7. i'm very eager for a change. a big change.
8. the vacuum and i are becoming best friends. thanks to mowgli's ability to shed an insane amount.
9. i have finally learned to accept that my feet will never grow num or callus enough to void out the the pain of pointe shoes. pain is beauty; or at least that's what i'm told.
10. i fall in love over and over again, each and every day. biggest blessing of life.


  1. don't be so hard on yourself! nobody would look nice in tights and leotard after thanksgiving! hahaha

    change is always good, so I hope you get what you need :)

  2. love this picture first of all.
    i still don't like pumpkin things.
    i don't like to wear makeup--im too pale, i feel like a loser when they tell me color is "translucent" haha
    and gosh i want your pup.
    hope your feet get a little break.


  3. this is too darling...love it!
    and i'm sure you look perfect before and after thanksgiving in that leotard & tights. xo

  4. I'm obsessed with makeup, too! I always want to buy it... Need to stop! And 10pm bedtimes are where it's at!

  5. Learning is truly such a beautiful thing.
    Even when it is those small things. That's what counts, you know?
    It's great that you've been observant, that means you're opening your eyes to the beauty around you.
    As usual, loving reading your posts.
