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.

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: 

Lamp from Craigslist! As some of yall know, I like Craiglist a lot. I try not to buy new furniture because I like pieces with a little history and personality. I also like meeting the previous owners of the pieces I buy, albeit brief, there's been some comical and sweet stories out of the experience of buying used. This particular lamp was purchased from a man who answered the door holding a cat. Please excuse the mess in the background, I'll be moving this coming weekend, so my current place is a bit of a mess right now. I would say excuse my face but this is my "selfie" face, so you probably have to get used to it.

Isn't the glow lovely? I love the shade, but I'm on the fence about the base. I'm debating whether or not I should paint the base.

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.
