how applicable

Found on my walk today with Abby, taken on my sad little phone.

The weather has been so warm and lovely, we couldn't stay inside staring at screens anymore.
There's something about January that just crushes my soul a little bit
it's cold, and grey, and so sad to look at. I just want to bundle myself up in bed and hibernate till Spring.

February always feels like my forgiving month. It has those little teases of sun and warmth that give me a little hope and push me through till the nicer months arrive. Whenever the sun comes out I feel like I can breathe again, and I'm glad I had an amazing person to spend the afternoon with.

Walks are so wonderful and Abby is so wonderful and spring break in a couple days is so wonderful.

Today was a good day :)

thoughts from the couch.

This place in Olympia, WA makes the best sandwiches ever.
And the best pie, which is basically my favourite thing.

I'm going home for spring break in two weeks and I'm so excited.
It's weird being gone for so long and missing there, but then missing here when I go back.
Why does that happen?

My sleep schedule is totally messed up these days.
I blame Kyle for keeping me up to talk every night... But I love it.
I feel like my life is just turning into this eternal countdown of waiting to see him.

I want to go to Disneyland for my birthday.

I'm seriously just surviving on goldfish crackers right now because I haven't gone grocery shopping in weeks, and when I actually did go I just bought a whole bunch of stuff that does not mix.

Being an adult is hard.

I'm ready for warm weather now.

These paintings by Clare Elsaesser are so beautiful
I love that they capture the moment and feelings without showing them on their faces
(plus faces are always my struggle, so this is inspiring)
Isn't the world so awesome?
Aren't people so talented?

It just makes me happy.

the weekend.

Four days is just not long enough with your bestfriend.
I would much rather have our whole lives, please and thankyou.

You're the best Valentine. See you soon.

Favourite Human Being

Kyle comes tomorrow and I'm so excited!!
But I kept thinking it was today, so that sucks.
Thursday is literally the slowest day ever.

I wish I had something more to say on the subject...
But I don't.

Greenhouses are so cool.

I took some engagement photos in a greenhouse and these little plant babies were just so cute.
I wanted to take them all home with me. And a cactus. The end.

Portland, yo.

(a post i promised a while ago that I never got around to. All photos from Kyle, of course)

We ate a delicious grilled cheese from a food cart downtown. And wandered through Powell's. We shared a burger and fries with white truffle oil from Little Big Burger (favourite) and it felt like Christmas in Anthro. I wished I had the funds to buy everything. I did get a beautiful beanie with a huge pom pom on top, exactly what I wanted, and new shoes c/o my mother - hand delivered by Kyle. We walked and walked and walked. And kissed a lot too. We took silly photobooth pictures at the Ace and looked in little stores we passed. We had tacos at the most Portland taco place ever (Porque No Tacos. I still think about how good it is on almost a weekly basis) then tried super weird flavours of ice cream at Salt and Straw. We laughed and smiled and snuggled, then I cried a little bit when he had to go back home...

To be honest, I kind of forgot how much fun we have together. How happy he makes me, and how he's totally okay with my method of wandering to find something we like. We are really great adventure partners, and I hope we stay that way for a really, really long time.

Seven more days till Valentine's Day!
Aka my favourite holiday.
Aka a whole 4 days with my bestfriend.

I'm so excited.
