daylight savings is a time for me to unfurl; to come out from under my cozy, textured layers and let my skin breathe; to see the the world in color and not just in the gray/black tones i've found comfortable for the last few months. the change in seasons is truly a turning of a new leaf, of digging out what's been below for just a little bit too long.
as i've said before, i need change - i thrive in the change of seasons (well, in all change, really.) i am more creative, more inspired, more me as the seasons change than at any other time of the year. right now, more than ever, i am craving this change; craving a new perspective on life, seeing things in color and not just through a dusty gray lens.
i need some color, some sunshine and some lightness of being.
oh, and might i add that i turn 30 this week?! maybe i'm feeling this a little bit, too...well, likely that's part of this feeling.
some of the things that are feeding this hunger right now are...
evoke the spirit | beautiful skulls handmade in the sweet town of sayulita, mexico. each skull starts out bare boned (literally) and is woven into beautiful patterns with the brightest of threads.
mexican + aztec print anything | rugs. pillows. prints. you name it. these patterns make a home feel alive and vibrant and i'm searching high and low for the perfect additions to our home. see also: meadow at dusk.
summer nights at dairy queen on riverside drive | i haven't been home in almost 2 1/2 years, so needless to say, i'm homesick...scrolling through facebook today, i saw this and was reminded at how many summer nights in high school were spent here with some people i cherish so much.
mamaandbean | i love going through my old posts - i love to reflect on my world then with the perspective i have now. at this very moment, there's so much of the old me that i'm searching for and am craving for in the me right now.
a rock your bliss retreat | i just started filling my piggy bank for this retreat for SO many reasons, amongst them is spending a transformational week with my best friend and achieving a goal of mine, to boot. it's happening - if there's a will, there's a way, right?
looking forward to taking off my sunglasses this week and thoroughly enjoying everything the sun shines down upon.
