How are You?

This post has absolutely no rhyme or reason other than they are all pretty pictures. I guess I’m a little random or maybe uninspired or something. You know that feeling, right? It’s like that sometimes. And sometimes you just don’t have a lot of time and, well, this is one of those times. But, I still wanted to stop and say, “hello and here is some pretty and a drop of lovely for you to take with you today.” I look for that too. Even when I’m in a hurry, a quick hit of pretty from your place, always adds a little shine to my day, even if I don’t have enough time to say a “hello, how are you today?” Which I always want to do (I hope you know that).
… “Hello!
How are you today?”
I hope this adds a little shine to you’re day.
(and now I’m wishing I had a bunch of shiny pictures for you
….maybe tomorrow).

    you and i are feeling the same way today, yes?

    did we stay up too late watching nine by design, perhaps?!

    {i liked robert better this week. they edited him horribly in the first ep, i think.}

    ok. tomorrow will be shinier. i promise. xoxo.

    I've been like that a lot lately, too. Total scatterbrained & just…blah. Mostly because I just finished a bunch of semester-long animation projects, and am in the process of putting them all on Vimeo. It's exhausting, & I'm ready to do absolutely nothing.

    Check them out if you want!

    This does (add shine to my day! :)
    Beautiful pictures – definitely great home inspiration.
    I totally understand that feeling of being uninspired…but I absolutely love that you still wanted to say hi, show us some beauty…
    That's the perfect recipe for calling inspiration back to you :) And also, we enjoy the pictures :)

    No rhyme or reason is always good! I wish I lived in each of these pictures. That last one is a dream and how about those cute yellow boots and chair…love that.

    your blog is la la la la la lovely. I am totally in love. I am so sorry about your sleep depravation, that is the hardest part of having a baby, hands down. I wish I could suggest something that worked for me… maybe I will figure it out the second time around {wink}
