Rainy Daydream

We're all familiar with that feeling. You open one sleepy eye and hear it - the drip, drip (or sometimes the tap dance) of raindrops. You already know before you even leave your bed, that all you're going to want to do today is close your eyes again and go back to sleep. For me, today was one of those days.

I've felt a bit overextended lately. September has been a very busy month for me, with moving and school starting things have been a little less than relaxing for me. I have been working a lot and on top of that I have had a lot of school work. It has been hard to find some "breathe" time. 

Today I woke up and knew that I was going to need a mental health day. I skipped my first class and decided to use that extra time to run a few errands and catch up on some work. It would have been nice to be able to curl up in my bed with Netflix and a big cup of tea, but we'll see the day isn't over yet.

Flat-Lay Life

Sweater, socks, shoes, and belt all by Free People.

All I need for fall.

Running the Instagram at work, flat-lays have become a big part of my life. Lately I've found that I've been doing it in my everyday life as well. There's just something about laying out my clothes for the day, seeing how the colors play off of each other, that makes me a bit giddy inside.

Crystals & Candles

Here's a little peek at my little window shrine. 

This weekend was wonderful - the perfect balance of work and fun. I'm hoping that my weekends will always be like this.

In Christianity, Judaism, and many other religions, a sanctuary refers a space within a place of worship that is sacred or holy. In this place, one is thought to be closest to god. For me, sanctuary means a place where I can just be; a place where my soul can thrive; where I can be closest to the things that mean the most to me. 

Here is a little peek at my sanctuary.

The quality of light is just amazing in this place. In the morning and throughout the day our rooms are drenched with light. It makes waking up a little easier in the morning. 

It is about day 10 of apartment life and Jacky and I have been adjusting quite well - we're becoming comfortable with our new commutes, who takes a shower when, typical roomie stuff. It feels great to have a space to call our own.

Y'all should come by for a visit…as soon as we get a kitchen table.

Shoutout to Lexii Morton for painting my bureau for me :)

More to come!

It feels good to have a day to just breathe. I feel that I write this often on this blog, because the days that I actually have time to sit and blog are those breathing days. 

On Monday I packed up my life and moved it to Allston. I have been looking forward to this move for MONTHS. Jacky and I found this adorable little place in Allston back in February and on September 1 we were finally able to move in! This space is great - small living area, but huge bedrooms, and lots of light. If there is one thing my room in Winthrop and my apartment have in common, its the amazing windows.

I have had a bit of a gypsy summer. I was always flitting from one home to the other - from my grandmother's house to my dad's or to my aunt's. It feels good to know that I won't have to do that anymore. Everything I need will be right here…as soon as I go home and get the rest of my stuff…

Until then, here's a little taste.
