Day 50 // I’m really starting to think I would look better in black and white. Also day 50!
Day 51 // You’re the pickin’ to my grinnin’ card, Tupelo Honey Cafe glass, Dangerous, poisonous coffee mug, dyeing spoons, a luminary, scarf/wall hanging, art calendar and some feminist lit—a few of my favorite things.
Day 52 // Friday night fare.
Day 53 // Free Starbucks and sunshine. There is a God.
54 // Infinite ironing.
Day 55 // Scribbles at work. I discovered this quote last week: “And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” -Kahlil Gibran
Day 56 // Treat yo self.
A day late, a dollar short. Sorry for being tardy to the 365 Project party, ya’ll. It doesn’t feel like I do much, but my days are always jam-packed and my to-do list never seems to get any shorter. I think time is playing a joke on me.
Day 43 // Practicing spelling words.
Day 44 // Valentines treats in the office.
Day 45 // Forgive the horrible focus. But I loved this pattern… can you tell what the object is?
Day 46 // Brunch à la Aunt Terry. Puff pancake, scrambled eggs, sausage and hash browns. I went full-on Leslie Knope.
Day 47 // I want to start a series looking into empty bottles. The first one is here.
Day 48 // Another day where I forgot to take a photo until 11:48 p.m. Reading Orange is the New Black on my Kindle before bed. It’s not as great as the show, just because of course the characters aren’t as insane and dramatic and wonderful, but still a good read.
Day 49 // I took a walk on my lunch break, and it was glorious.

Happy love day, sweet-as-stevia sugar pies.
I’m feeling over the moon today, blissfully surrounded by cookies, cards and cartoon hearts spinning in circles around my head, as if I knocked my cranium on cupid’s buns of steel.
I’ve got love to spread, so I’ll keep it short and saccharine.
I went low-key with my Valentines this year. Very low-key. I only made a handful. Target supplied the rest. And I’m using the word ‘made’ loosely. If I couldn’t draw it with a black ink pen or make a shape with a piece of washi tape, I didn’t make it. I’ve been busy.
I’m headed out-of-town for a relaxing weekend. Au revoir, amoureux.
Whoa! It’s been a whirlwind of a week. These photos are definitely more documentation of my days than they are art, but that’s ok. I’m still achieving my goal, and that’s what counts. (If you’re feeling nostalgic, find previous weeks here.)
Day 36 // So many things going on at once. Netflix (and OITNB) constantly. Duh.
Day 37 // When I need to clear my head, I go to the fabric store. I just wish I had unlimited fabric dollars.
Day 38 // Lots of shopping photos this week, apparently.
Day 39 // On Saturday I threw my dad a 60th birthday party with all his siblings and in-laws. It was a really simple evening, but it felt so good to be able to give my dad just one pleasant evening with smiles and laughs.
Day 40 // Exploring my fabric stash. Sorry about the wonky focus.
Day 41 // Saw this hilarious chair on the way to an interview. Also, YAYYY! Sunlight after 5 p.m.! We’ll all be regaining our lives soon!
Day 42 // Can you tell that I forgot until 10 o’clock last night to take this photo? Drinks with my Galentines. (Honestly, I’m actually shocked that I went 40 days without almost forgetting to take a photo! Hopefully it won’t happen again often.)
