life goes on within you

"when you've seen beyond yourself you will find peace of mind is waiting there
and the time will come when you see we're all one & life flows on within you & without you"

Columbia Visit: Part II-A Hike

I am constantly in awe at the nature that exists in the world we live in...
(like the way leaves layer over each other to create a magical patterned canopy in the sky)
I've always felt most at home in nature. I used to think I could live in the city, enjoying the bustling life of it all on a daily basis, but the older i've become, the further that ideal has shifted to the back of my mind. When Nick & I first met, we talked about how we would love to live in a simple cabin in the woods. One that we designed & built. One that we could go to & find complete solitude together. I will for sure live in a few busier places before our dream takes place, but i look forward to those days! I love living in suburbia, but there's something so special about the air & the sky in the emptiness outside of city.

Columbia visit: Part I

This week, while visiting my best friend in her lovely town of Columbia, Missouri...
I indulged in copious amounts of this:

(mostly in my favorite flavor, lavender honey!)

darling vintage cloche

Sometimes we just have to reward ourselves...
& that I did.
Somehow I miraculously managed to make all A's this semester, even though I went to school for 21 hours, worked at a restaurant and on campus, and was sure I would not get through my seemingly tough art history class, as well as my fourth semester of french. But I did, & i don't want this to be an entry of me bragging about myself, but I am just proud/shocked!

So because of this, I bought this darling vintage cloche in my very favorite color.
I love it, & am anxiously awaiting its arrival on my doorstep!

Just a little bit of natural happiness for my Monday full of studying & anticipating summertime:

a darling little feather on my local egg!
These are the little things that inspire my way of eating & talking to the others about the importance of doing so, as well!

Happy Monday & happy almost summertime!
