some days I wake up feeling very comfortable in my own skin

I took this picture of myself yesterday afternoon. I  didn't put too much thought into it, just set up the tripod, set the timer and stood there. at first review I found it looked sad, but the longer I stared, it didn't feel so sad. it felt simple, mostly calm or something close to it. but also not. there's more to it, but you don't notice it right away, or maybe at all, but it's there. I might just feel that way, because I'm in my own head. but either way I really like all of it.

some days I just wake up feeling very comfortable in my own skin. I like the way my hair falls, and my face isn't covered in blemishes. I do things that i enjoy. I feel accomplished. today was one of those days. I put away laundry, cleaned out my closet, edited pictures, played a song, watched a good movie. I hope you also had a good saturday.

it's also 3:41 am. I am obviously having trouble sleeping. I was going to blog all these notions tomorrow, but I figured "Hey, I'm up. why wait?"

Stumbling on inspiration

I came across a book today at the UVU library.
It was the communication arts, typography annual 4. January/February 2014

Definitely a distraction from reading history books, but one I didn't mind

Obviously I drooled over it for way too long. Beautiful and inspiring. It was one of those stumblings that makes all your creative bones want to dance. 

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but I started an etsy shop, Sincerely Peachy Prints. I found myself creating prints for fun and said "Hey, might as well try and sell these on the interweb."

I'm always looking for inspiration and suggestions for things that people would want in their homes. If you have an idea, quote, image you think would make a good print? Let me know! If I end up using your suggestion, I'll send you the print for free.

Feel free to comment or send me an email :

Future wife slash forever a child.

Today I made chicken stroganoff. It was so good. I was really proud of myself for actually cooking dinner. Since my most used food medium is a microwave. It's moments like that, that leave me excited to be a wife and a mother.

I later ate 3 preshaped cookie dough pieces. So there's that. 

Also this picture is from summer time, which I miss dearly........

Happy Sunday 

Saturdays rambles

I've almost been blogging for two years I think. I could check, but I'm on my cell phone and don't have the energy to navigate the web on this little screen. 
Blogging has been quite the journey sometimes it leaves me feeling fulfilled and accomplished and other times I definitely feel inadequate. I feel that people that blog have beautiful cultured interesting lives and my life, while beautiful is usually far from cultured or interesting.

I occasionally find my self saying that I need to do things worth blogging about.....but then this all becomes a chore, and chores are never fun. 
I haven't written down any resolutions this year, but I've thought about them a lot and one idea that keeps coming to my head is just working on becoming more me? Stopping myself from making compromises about who I am, quirks and things, to please others.

I'm weird and boring, occasionally dirty minded, sort of clever. Over sensitive and a bit defensive. Creative, minus a lot of creative talent. Sentimental, and loyal. Skeptical. Scatter brained. I like to take selfies of pointless things. I'm hopeful and cautious, definitely more hopeful. Sensitive. And scatter brained. 

Tonight I saw a movie with my friend Ali. It was the loveliest movie, the kind of movie that makes you want to be in love. Or fall deeper in love than you already are. Oh and it was 'Her.' 

I also drove to a look out near my house and looked over the city lights while listening to my favorite music thinking and hoping about all the love I'll one day fall into. 

I ended the night by sitting on the kitchen floor eating ice cream with my dog. 

Well that was all just a lot? I'm not sure where it all came from...but seriously, the selfie thing though.

I'm going to sleep now, have a great night.

Snappity snap snap

would like to start by saying that my cell phone tried to auto correct snappity to snappily. I plan on using the word snappily in my daily vocab, whether it is real or not.

Anyways, I had a break between classes and found these snaps that the world deserves to see. Enjoy. 

Seriously greatest friends. If you think we are crazy you are correct. But we also think we are funny

It snowed today.

Snow always throws me for a loop. I never seem to be prepared. 
My gloves are missing, I wear the wrong shoes, forget my hand warmers. 
It always takes me being inside to realize how pretty it is, and then I take these pictures.

im destined to be a nail biter and have little finger nails.

happy snow day.

I go to college

My first day of school was a tough one.
I think I built it up too much in my mind. (I definitely did.)
But either way I've got high hopes on tomorrow, or next week if things just are tough for a little bit.
This "no job" and "full time student" thing is going to take some getting used to.
Wish me luck.
