Just a few things...
ONE. I am so happy about this crisp weather lately. I can finally wear all of the cozy tops that I have been hoarding in my closet! Summer is great, do not get me wrong. It has its own treasures. But that fall tho. I ordered this amazing top from Joseph Ribkoff a month or so ago. Cropped top overlay, leather piping, gold zippers on the sides.. It is everything a girl could want! Did I mention that it is extremely comfortable? Well, it is!
TWO. Long walks, deep conversation, and effortless laughter has reminded me lately how precious each moment is. It is easy to take the people we cherish most for granted, and overlook how special even the smallest moment can be. Sometimes it is the smallest things that mean the most. Soak up every minute you have with the dearest to your heart. Wallow in the moments. Drink them in.
THREE. Why is it that cool weather deceives me into thinking that I can eat whatever I want? Ice cream.. by all means. What's that, a cookie? Better eat it. Need help finishing that piece of quiche?
Perhaps it is the high-waisted leggings and slouchy sweaters. All of that room for a few extra pounds!
FOUR. Speaking of gaining weight. Asparagus hash brown crust quiche is the best thing that your tastebuds will ever encounter. I found this out in a moment of desperation. I popped into Common Ground, a local coffee shop, and selected a piece of asparagus quiche out of extreme post-gym hunger. It was the best thing that I have ever eaten. End of story.
FIVE. A friend of mine did me a really sweet favor yesterday. She took a few minutes of her time and graciously gave them to me, walking down to my work to bring me lunch because I could not leave the shop. It was a simple favor, a generous gesture, and it touched my heart tremendously. Even if you have just a moment to give to someone or to do a small favor for them, it matters. It is no small thing in the end. Take advantage of those moments. You never know how impactful they might be.
Your turn! What are a few happenings or thoughts that you would like to share?
________________________________ MEET BRITTANY ________________________________
I was born and bred in Kentucky and honestly don't see myself ever leaving the beautiful bluegrass state. My days are spent practicing law and this blog has allowed me to embrace my creativity and provided an outlet to showcase my interests. It has truly become my baby and I hope that you enjoy reading it half has much I enjoy creating it!
How did you get started blogging?
I got started blogging mostly because I loved to read blogs. After graduating law school and moving to a new town I found myself unfulfilled and in search of something to fill up my creativity cup. I had wanted to start a blog for years but the time had never been right. I'm so happy I took the plunge!
Where do you find inspiration?
SO many inspiration mediums! I love flipping and dog earring magazine pages, jotting down ideas in my notebook that come up from chatting with friends, and of course hours of scrolling Pinterest! I've really tried to steer clear of following trends and just blogging about something because other bloggers are doing the same. I find my best ideas come from just channeling the things that happen in my everyday life.
Three things you can't live without..go!
My girlfriends--after college it's so hard to maintain friendships but also so important. I make a conscious effort to put my friendships high on my priority list. Nothing makes me feel more refreshed than a weekend eating, laughing, and dancing with my girls.
My dogs- my little pooches bring such joy to my life. I've recently started fostering dogs and it is so rewarding. They are hard to pass on to the next part of their journey but nothing makes my day more than watching one of my dogs find their forever homes!
Good food- life would be so boring and sad without good food. I have always had a big appetite and food truly is one of the joys of life!
What do you find most beautiful in life?
This sounds cheesy but the older I get the more I truly realize it's all about the little things. Big moments of happiness or excitement are always fun but learning to cherish the small moments such as a quiet Friday night with your favorite tv show, splurging on dessert, or seeing an old friend really is what makes life oh so beautiful.
Tell us something we don't know about you!
I hate this question! I always try to think of something super clever or surprising. I'll choose something silly. Something you don't know about me is....I desperately want to love blue cheese. I always order dishes that have it in it hoping to love it but I just don't. I need to stop and accept I just don't like it!
