living for the weekends

or ... for days that we're all off and spending it together.
beyond thankful for the weekend that we just endured. made me truly realize just how blessed I am, to have two very wonderful boys in my life. if only all of our days were spent just hanging out, enjoying each other's company.

think about it

We are all just one small
adjustment from
making our lives work for us

oth marathon-ing

Dear Molly,
This is gonna sound a little strange, but I'd like you to paint over my old closet door. The thing is, there is never a time when you'll be more honest, when your convictions will be stronger or your motives will be more pure than they are right now. Which means you should chase whatever it is that excites you.
Be confident and take risks. And paint over my words so you can start writing your own. My story might have inspired you, but I'm certain your story will inspire the next girl to live in our room. I want you to know you don't need somebody to write about you in order for your life to mean something. You can write about yourself. Make your own destiny. Then, years from now, the next girl will keep what you write on that door long enough to remind you of how inspired your life is.
And you can tell that girl to paint over the door, because you realize the words you wrote, the friends you had, the urgency you felt will always be there underneath the paint. The love you professed will always be there, the spark of something undeniable, a seed of hope, the truth, for better or for worse, burning fiercely, just below the surface.
Love, Peyton.

east office

Sunny days puts everyone in such a better mood.
Loving the weather that we've been having as of late, it even makes the commute into work a little better as well.

mar 19; east office

It may be a little odd, but from Monday to Friday - this is where I spend most of my day. This is where I work. My office is an upstairs bedroom that gets a significant amount of daylight. Much different from the offices out West, bu it's definitely a cozy environment.

A week since my last post? Definitely not like me.
If it was up to me, I could (would) spend most of my days blogging, documenting.
Not much going on in our little world.


Ryan and I bought a few Billy bookcases from Ikea today. We've got a cute little room when you enter our home, with a bay window - which let's in a ton of natural night. Hoping to be able to fill up the shelves rather quickly, then get some photos on the wall - maybe a comfy chair of some sort and call it a day. Ryan gave me some tough love today. Stating that our home is my own fresh canvas, it's time to put in our personal touches. I expressed that I was semi-scared to hang anything on the wall, paint anything a different colour, but enough of all that ... time to make this house, our home.

second look: I resolute not to make resolutions!

On January 1st, I posted the following on my tumblr -
& since then, I kind of forgot about them ... It's time for a second look.

Let’s just start changing the way we live our lives:

To be simplistic: stop cluttering & start being a minimalist - do we really need those things?

To document life: doesn’t matter through what medium, but I’ve always been obsessed with capturing the moment or else, they kind of just pass you by.

To take (calculated) risks: you never know what’s out there waiting for you, if you’re not willing to see it through.

To pay it forward: how amazing does it feel to be short $0.20 for a cup of coffee and have the person behind you spare it for you or to be walking to a parking meter to buy a ticket for you dash and have a person had you theirs because they’re done with it …

To save $$$: I’m always one for splurging don’t get me wrong - cause we work hard for our money! But there are always ways to make this hard earn cash stretch.

To let my creative juices flow: ohhappyday, est. let’s get this show started!

2011, you’re already looking to be a good one.

Instead of these being resolutions, I think they can be themes for the year. I have to find a lovely home for these words to live, so that I can be reminded of the kind of life I want to be living ...

I'm back!

After much of a hiatus,
& spending countless hours religiously updating tumblr -
I've come to realize that it doesn't seem to satisfy my need to document life.
I will however, continue to use it for capture things that inspire me.

But for now, (at least) - I'm back on this blog.
Telling our story, the best way I know how.

Hello, again.
