I must be getting old, you guys. I straight up started off calling this post “MARCH Desktop Background”, and I find myself marveling more and more at how quickly the days pass. Must be a post-30 thing.

Anyway, what’s not to love about this Twain quote? One of my favorite authors, quietly calling people out in the simplest way possible.

I’m a little slow off the starting block this month, but I design these for myself anyway so I thought I’d share.:)

These words from Lincoln are deceptively simple, but I found them so meaningful. It’s pretty much my life philosophy (well, most days, anyway), except phrased more poetically than I ever could.

February Desktop Background

Finally, a belated new desktop, thanks to my wifi being out most of this week. Oh, the joys of technology! But on the plus side, I got a lot more done that I would have otherwise.;)

Margaret Mead was a ground breaking cultural anthropologist in the early 20th century, and when I read these love letter excerpts to her longtime love Ruth Benedict I was really struck by these words. No doubt because they’re what I’ve been feeling myself in my current relationship. But the more I think about them, the more I feel they’re universal – the best relationship is the one where you can’t wait to grow old together, right?

At any rate, hope you enjoy! If you want something a bit more Valentine’s Day-ish, there’s always last year’s desktop.

About Time! But worth the wait – this is lovely!

I’m starting the year off fresh with a photo of some old beat up Chucks. Makes perfect sense, right?:)I couldn’t help pairing it with these inspiring words by the brilliant George Eliot, from a letter she wrote to a friend in 1844 (I highly recommend reading the rest of it).

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s! Was 2013 lucky for you or are you super ready for a fresh start? After how awesome this past year turned out to be for me, anything else is really just icing on the cake.

December Desktop Background

I think this may be the least prepared I’ve ever been heading into Christmas, but it’s for such great reasons I’m finding it hard to worry.:)Life has been wonderful and kept me so busy these past six months! And I love this time of year so much, I refuse to let myself get too stressed about it and make sure that I enjoy it as much as possible before it’s gone again. Who’s with me?!

I snagged this shot of my roommate’s and my tree last year, and I love this ornament in particular because it’s one my Norwegian aunt stitched for me (I believe, it might have been another relative) for my first Christmas in 1983. Looking good for 30! I went straight for this shot, got all the sizes designed, and then realized I did something pretty similar last year, but oh well. Who doesn’t enjoy being reminded of the sparkly lights and that amazing pine smell?

Anybody else feel like December really snuck up on them this year? Must be because Thanksgiving fell so late in the month…or I’m just looking for any excuse. At any rate, hope you had a great holiday, and no matter what you’re celebrating this month, I hope you’re embracing it with open arms!

Yes! December has totally snuck up this year! I am mostly done with Christmas shopping though so that is a HUGE relief (and *very* unlike me).

I love that ornament- baby’s 1st Christmas ornaments get me :)
