creative juice.

nikki farquharson

sometimes i wish i was a desiner. but to tell you the truth, i don't really know what they do or what jobs they have. i don't want to be a clothing designer...maybe a graphic designer, or an interior designer. or one of those people that arrange pretty objects for photos. that sounds silly since i'm in law school, but sometimes i just see pictures (like the ones above) and i feel so inspired. my creative juices start flowing, and i think....i could do something like that.

what would you do if you had to do things differently?
just curious.

appreciation of art.

hello loves! i've just embarked on a new adventure. one that i am finally excited about. after much anticipation and sadness, i have changed my attitude and i'm officially pumped about being in india. you can follow my journey at my other blog: Kaitlyn's Big Wide World. i just posted photos of where i'm living and my neighborhood.

i think i'll also be keeping up on this blog, but maintaining it's character of style, photography, design, and little bits of my own life here and there. so, without further ado...

just read this post and loved it.

also, have you visited liz chan's blog? i'm in love. here is a beautiful design she has posted:

i'm back.

what an incredible week. i just got back from hawaii and let me just tell you....i'm ready to go back already! here are some photos for you!

i leave for india in two days. i'm having such mixed emotions about this trip. i'm watching eat, pray, love to get more excited. C says that if i have a bad attitude about the trip, it will be a bad trip. so, i'm trying to have a better outlook. i don't know what to say....i am just feeling very comfortable where i am at right now. i'm worried that if travel again, it's going to uproot my life and everything that feels so good right now. that's just silly though right?! i'll only be gone for six weeks. that's nothing. and i know i'll have a blast.

an ode to kitty.

my mom is just so great. i know everyone thinks that about their moms, but i think mine is particularly fab. here are some things i love about my mom:

1.) she collected seventeen magazines when she was young, and when i am at my grandparent's house i like to look through them.
2.) she used to sew her own clothes, and was always ahead of the trend.
3.) she played the wicked witch of the west in a high school play.
4.) she loves the movie french kiss.
5.) she taught me to travel travel travel whenever i have the opportunity.
6.) when we're at the lake, she wakes me up in the middle of the night to go on the dock and look at the stars. 
7.) she water-skis like a pro.
8.) she always takes good care of me-and my dog!
9.) she's the best kindergarten teacher in the whole wide world.
10.) she has a song for everything.

love you mom! happy mother's day!! (a day early)
