This Day & Stuff

The sad part is, I have actually made dumber videos in my life, so.


To Flowers & Pink Chairs

This is currently my favorite spot of our home. I recently found the rug for wicked cheap on craigslist. I then did something totally out of character and bought pink spray paint for one of the chairs. The thing is, I have never loved a pink chair more. It adds just the perfect little pop of color that makes me say, "Yes, life is good." Ya know? And then, as if by some act of fate, I found this bouquet of flowers at the grocery store. I have never wished more for a plant to live forever. They are so beautiful and I am sad that they will only last a little. But I am loving them while they're here. Meanwhile they are loving the pink chair by making her look even more in place. As if she needed it...


Four Years & A Million Pictures

Guys, this day happened four years ago. I cannot believe it. As it turns out, it's rather difficult to find our wedding pictures around this site of mine. So I figured I should remedy that with a butt ton of pictures in a post today. 

I often wish that I could redo this day because I feel like I would make some very different decisions about decor and what not. But looking over these pictures I get so happy and giddy and wish I could go back to it: this exact day, no different. It was one of the best days of my life (although no one warned me how utterly exhausted I would be by the end of all of it). I really married the perfect man for me. We have already learned so much in these few short years.

Last night I was home alone while Jordan was working. I was standing in our kitchen making dinner and I just had this feeling come over me that said, "You're doing it." I just had this pride come over me for myself and Jordan. We're doing it. We're in a good place. We're making a beautiful home. We work hard and we try our best to be good to each other. I don't know where I thought we'd be after four years, but I am real happy we are here.

READ Instead // 05

A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare || I should be honest and say that reading Shakespeare terrifies me. I'm afraid I'm going to get into one of his plays and have absolutely no idea what is going on. I've read Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth and a few others but it was always in a class. If I wasn't understanding it I could rely on class discussions and other things. So I was nervous trying it on my own. But I put on my big girl pants and picked a short one...   :/

I was a tad bit familiar with A Midsummer Night's Dream because of an exercise I remember doing in a theater class in high school. But overall it was new and I'm happy to say it went well. I understood it! Once you get into the rhythm of his writing, it's easier. Shakespeare has a very strange sense of humor, but I enjoyed it. I cannot even begin to pretend like I can analyze it and find all the cool symbols but that wasn't really my objective. Shakespeare, we good.
