Picture This: Week 49, 2014.

Last year, I started a picture-a-day project with the new year. My intent was and is to try and appreciate every day, the good and the bad. I'm posting weekly recaps of the past seven days. It's a fun way to recap the week, and keep me motivated for the next week. By throwing it up to the interwebs, it's a not so subtle reminder to myself that if I'm laying around all week and taking pictures of my feet poking out of a blanket as I watch Netflix for the millionth time, I'm going to bore everyone to sleep. Not that I care, guys. That being said, it's rarely ground-breaking, but I couldn't handle that anyway. It's a log of my life, and a gentle reminder to myself that life is a gift and I should take advantage every day. I don't want to get preachy. If you do this, I want to know so I can nose around. In the least creepy way possible. You can start anytime, too - a new year doesn't have to start on January 1. Steph created one mid-year. Veronica does this as well, but I'm losing faith in her ever updating her blog. Check out my past weeks through the "picture-a-day" topic link on the right.

It's moments on Sundays, sitting at my desk and drafting, that I realize the house is really coming together and I've failed miserably at documenting.

Read This: XXVII.

It's been a minute since one of these or any post really. I'm trying for more consistency, because this is my sanity. I'm recapping some things I read this week that I found interesting, not to force you, because I can't, but because sharing is caring. This also holds me accountable and keeps me from zoning out on Pinterest every hour.


  • Styling tricks for living rooms. I was very pleased with myself that we've utilized some, and will be trying the others.
  • Slow readers, unite! Also - reading clubs sound even better than book clubs.
  • It was snowing in October here. Last winter was bad, and I'm seriously concerned about this one. There's more glamorous versions on Pinterest, but a weather emergency kit is something everyone should start.

I'm into it.

DC was lovely today so I took a walk to explore new memorials and museums. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial featured a star, with a point for each branch of the military, and stories of those personally affected.
