insta-recap: life lately.

making....
capturing....
eating.... 
 reading.... 
wearing....

1. making: jewelry for the shop. this one is called the Caron necklace (pronounced "khar-in") which means "milk white." this necklace in particular is important to the creation and naming of my shop, and thus, is the signature piece....take it as a clue :)

2. capturing: bits of downtown. this is actually smoothie king. i have a major thing for smoothies. i just love being able to capture bits of the place i live. E calls it gramming. as in, instagramming, if you didn't catch that.

3. eating: carrot cake. for the first time on Sunday. when i realized that it is officially my favorite kind of cake ever and i barely shared with E even though it was his birthday. i'm sorry, E. (side-note: i normally don't even enjoy cake. so that says something!)

4. reading: mere christianity. which was gifted to me by my friend, Luke. if you've never read it i suggest buying a copy. it sheds light on authentic Christianity. plus, C. S. Lewis is a witty guy. he's real. he's blunt. he's awesome.

5. wearing: a new dress. my style is morphing again, as well as my attitude toward clothes. i think i buy more clothes simply because i buy them cheaply. i miss having staples in my closet. i miss natural hues, cotton fabrics. i cleared out my closet this week and made a rule to buy only one item of clothing a month--and when i do, make sure i'm investing in quality pieces this time.

happy thursday, folks!
