Love Affair

It all started when she was a child. It was her first crush. At the time she didn’t know it would turn into something more, something bigger. He came to visit every year and she was excited simply by his presence. When it was time for him to leave her days were a little less bright; gray and clouded. She liked him a lot, never knowing how powerful a feeling it would become.

As she grew up she started to realize how important his visits were. He didn’t just show up alone. He brought possibilities, adventure, and fun stories. Everything seemed brighter when he was around. He made her feel like anything was possible. She made the most of their time together. Sometimes they had special adventures with others that she’d come to reflect on later in life, other times they just spent time together, sharing warm kisses and laughter.

Years later he still made his visits. Only now, she didn’t have as much time for him. She made plans when she could, spent time where she was able, but more often than not, life got in the way. She now had obligations and responsibilities. He waited for when she was available but she regretted not being able to spend time together the way they used to. Their relationship had changed.

Changed but not broken. He still gives all he can while asking for nothing in return. He still offers adventure, laughter, and memories. The hugs are still warm and the kisses like no other, taken as often as they can be. When she first started to fall for him, she just thought it was a passing crush. She could never have known their’s would turn out to be her greatest love affair of her life.

Home Makeover

We've finally made it to Friday. I don't even know what to say about this past week except I'm glad it's over. It's also payday so I'm trying not to run to the nearest store, or bar, to spend all of my dolla dolla bills y'all.

The best way to shop and keep my money? Wishlists! 

Today's list is more of a collage of color schemes, but nonetheless, I want the goods.

Bright, Peaceful Living Room

I've been wanting to do something similar to this scheme in my living room for oh, about 5 years. Needless to say, it hasn't happened yet. I'm so indecisive when it comes to choosing the colors but this is soothing and neutral. I can easily swap out the orange for yellow, bright green, teal or any other color I'm eyeing at the moment. Plus, this goes with those bird prints I bought last month.

Sweet Dreams

When it comes to my sleeping space I like to keep things as tranquil and simple as possible. I despise clutter, especially in the bedroom. It's the one space that I want to be minimal and decorated for nothing but comfort. Warm and relaxing earth tones are my favorite and the green rug adds a pop of color, while still being neutral.

Kitchen Goodies

Since the kitchen is one of my favorite rooms, it's my favorite area to kind of draw out my funky side. I love cooking and trying new things so bright colors and mismatched pieces feel right at home. I actually own full sets of those Fiesta dishes up there and I'm in the process of decorating using mismatched colors. 

How do you decorate?

Confessions of a First World Nature

I tweet. A lot, according to my profile.

Like everyone else, I use hashtags. I try to keep them to a minimum though because hashtag overload just make me crazy. One hashtag that I find myself using almost daily, in and out of online life is #firstworldproblems or #fwp

I'm not sorry about it one bit. We've all said it, thought it or had them. Here are some of my recent #firstworldproblems

The saddest part is that I actually made more than half of these because, #fwp, there weren't cards specific to my issues. Someone get me a tissue please?

What are your first world problems?
