Hello lovely ladies! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I can't say I did much myself. On Friday night I went dancing with the boyfriend & a couple of friends. Saturday I spent most of the day recovering.. and today was eventless! Haha. Oh! I did accomplish something pretty big though - I created my first Etsy shop today. Yaye! I doubt I will get too many customers.. but we'll see. 

If you'd like to see my site just go here. There are only a few items for sale at the moment. The original prints are of my highschool artwork. I have won several awards for them & they got me into Pratt. Everything in the shop is fairly cheap, so hopefully that will attract buyers. Once I have made a bit of publicity I might consider raising the prices. For now, all items are about $20.00. 

OKAY: I need a love guru. This has been really been bothering me lately. Tom & I have been fighting like animals - all the time. We can't make it through the day without getting into some stupid argument. Seriously, the fights are usually about how I am hanging up the clothes wrong. Ugh! It seems like we actually "like" to fight. 

So- I have come the the conclusion that there are two reasons why we bicker. One: We see in eachother the things that we hate in ourselves. Does that make sense? Tom and I are alot alike. Almost too much to even be together. (oh but we love eachother!) I don't know a solution. Why when we love eachother so much do we treat one another so poorly at times? After the fight we spend an hour sweet talking one another & apologizing profusely.. & the cycle continues. 

The second reason we fight is because of boredom. Because of the way our schedules work out, our days our filled with a ton of free time. As people with ADD, one of our biggest necessities is a busy, productive, and routine schedule. However, we don't have one right now. This makes us irritated, out of sorts, and anxious. We have got to figure out how to get it together. I want to spend the rest of my life with him... just not like this.

Any advice?



Stunning photographs. I love the feminine characteristics - these images describe my personality to a tee. Lace, flower petals, & bows. Ahh, how divine it is to be a woman! (1, 2)

Okay, so I have a special connection to bras. Weird? Yes. I started wearing one in 4th grade. YES! Can you beleive it? I hit puberty wayyy before all of my classmates. Instead of being proud of my budding breasts, I was embarrassed. Kids would laugh and make fun of me so I'd layer myself with sports bras to pad myself down. One day I wore 7 of them to school. Today, I love my chest. I am very grateful that I will never need implants! However, there were times when I wanted them chopped off. Haha. (3, 4

I simply adore this vintage typewriter! I'd love to find one of these one day. (7,8)

  4. Congratulations on your ETSY shop ;-) I love the images.

    I'm no love guru and I even think you've pinpointed the problem perfectly. Maybe you could watch a documentary together, one that tackles some of the horrors of this world and then you realize how petty your problems are in comparison - luxury problems is probably a better description. Just an idea ;-)
