Yesterday my brother-in-law turned 24! Kae baked him an apple pie and we enjoyed it with ice cream and the Sherlock Holmes themed board game 221B Baker Street. Happy Birthday James, you are one of my favorite people ever and I'm grateful you're my brother. Kae married well :)
Today's snippets are work related:
Here's a cottontail rabbit spotted on my way home from a Back-to-School BBQ last night at my director's beautiful home. I stopped in the middle of the road and pulled my window down to get this shot. The rabbit was very cooperative; it's as if she knew what was up and posed for me.
My director lives on a good chunk of land, a bit of ways from work, so en route I also saw deer, sheeps and goats. If yall know me, you know that I consider baby goats my spirit animal (they're jumpy and all over the place, a little like me), so I was pretty excited to see the goats.
I've been working for Southwestern since October last year but I never got around to getting any black&gold gear, so I was especially excited that our director allowed everyone on staff to pick two items to get embroidered. I picked a fitted fleece pullover because it gets chilly in the office and a simple black polo.
So here's to animals and swag.
I went to my first Creative Morning in June and really enjoyed it. What's not to like about sipping coffee, eating free breakfast tacos, listening to live music and hearing a creative speaker? The topic was on minimalism and "Professor Dumpster" shared his experiences about living a (extreme) minimal lifestyle. Yup, he lives in a dumpster. When I revisited the creative morning website to re-watch the talk, I noticed the linked photo gallery and found myself in the album. Look! It's yours truly as the candid for filling a cup with free coffee. Little did yall that I moonlight as a hair-and-coffee-drinking model in my free time.
Do yall follow Erin Napier's blog Make Something Good Today? In her words, "This blog will document only the good things that happen on each and every day of my life."
I recently discovered her blog (thanks Huff for emailing it over!). Little did I know my sister has been a long time fan and reads it daily. It makes sense why she likes it, after all, Kae's blog is similar–they both chronicle the magic of everyday life. If I had one word to describe my sisters blog it would be grateful. Anyway. Erin's blog and Kae's blog has been inspiring me lately, so I'm going to start posting here more snippets of my daily life.
Let's start with:
There you have it. A little snippet of my life.
PS: Since we're on the topic of furniture/decor. Check out this wing tray I almost took home this weekend. She's new from Target and doesn't have a history, but lovely nonetheless:
Thanks for your patience as I slowly get this new site together. I was previously on Wordpress and made the move to Square Space earlier this month.
