oh man, i just can't get enough of instagram!  there's something extra special about documenting small pieces of your day and sharing them with others.  makes me appreciate little moments in life that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.  and truthfully, i also love seeing what people are up to.  it's the kind of photograph creeping joy i felt when facebook was in its prime!

this weekend was rather routine, but i spent quite a bit of time goal setting and self reflecting.  been really bad about not taking time off for myself lately, which almost always guarantees a meltdown.  no one likes a messy, irrational, tear-filled meltdown.  i do thrive on stress and keeping busy, but i need to be better about organization and planning as a way to avoid feeling overwhelmed.  definitely something about myself to work on, perhaps an organization post in the future will help?  okay that's it, i think this calls for an office makeover!!!  and who doesn't love a makeover?!  a little painting diy, and filing...yes, i think that is just what i need!

  13. I'm definitely a fan of Hunter boots! (even though I don't own a pair myself) X

  14. Nice photos. I like the hunter boots and ModCloth box :] I am awful with stress too but organization really helps.

  15. What's that now... time off for yourself?! Oh my gawd, these are words I seriously do not know. Haha, it's usually when I have a melt-down that I decide to take a day off. I think I've had maybe 10-12 days off?! In the last two years. Eeek! Ok, confessions aside...

    I too love seeing these little insta photos & getting a peek into other peoples week - especially when they are as adorable as you! Smooches!! V
