the sensations of this weekend

Hi lovely readers, it’s been a bit since I posted, and it’s been even longer since I posted consistently.  But here you go – I’ve got a recap of my senses of this lively, hazy weekend I just had for you.  I suggest listening to this playlist as you listen; hope you enjoy. Continue reading



September was such a whirlwind.  I can’t believe it’s already October.

As I write this, I’m sitting in my bed on a Sunday evening, wearing a soft old tee-shirt of my dad’s, wrapped up in a blanket, listening to “Moonlight Mile” (originally by the Rolling Stones) and smiling at this month, whether or not I enjoyed it on the whole.  It’s not about enjoyment.  It’s about growth and work and much more.

the atlantic ocean – photo diary

The week before school started, I had the opportunity to go to a little beach town in Delaware called Lewes and to stay in a house with my lovely family and grandmother.  My time there was, put simply, magnificent.

Theme songs – Take Me (Aly and AJ), Get Free (Lana Del Rey)

museum musings

Hey lovely readers,

This weekend my cousins came to visit from the mid-west.  We’re two pretty different families, yet we’re similar in some ways.  I love the fact that, with your family (at least in mine), it only takes a little while to click and then boom – you’re buds again.

I live within a few hours on Washington D.C.  On Saturday, the cousins and my younger two siblings drove to Washington D.C. and checked out some of the museums there.  It’s been a while since I’ve been to any of the museums there and I’m so glad I was able to go back.
