Can you whistle?

I can! I just got home and was so excited to see my dog again! Animals are so adorable; check out this puppy trying to whistle, from Smitten on Glamour.com!







I know this guy. I think he is very talented, and I love how the subjects are framed in the photograph. I think these photos are beautiful.

Heads up:

The fabulous blog oh, hello friend is giving away some awesome stuff right now…

Going Home


My Spring Break starts Friday and I am going to stay with my family outside of Seattle. It’s a really fun city with a lot of interesting stuff to see!



Fremont Troll Statue, The Space Needle, and the Pike Place Market in the Rain, all taken by me.

Past and Present

I love reading. Like most people who claim this, however, I don’t usually do so as much as I’d like! Some books I want to finish in the next few months:

Still Life with Woodpecker {Tom Robbins} : I’ve heard great things about the book and its author.

Among Other Things, I’ve Taken up Smoking {Miranda Donnal} : I started reading it a few weeks ago but was too sleepy! The beginning was great, though..

Suite Francaise {Irene Nemirovsky} : Another good book I haven’t yet finished.

InStyle Secrets of Style : It’s pretty inspiring but not really a book you “read” through. Still, it’s on my nightstand and deserves a second look!


Some books I have read recently and loved:

We Need to Talk About Kevin {Lionel Shriver} : Fascinating story about a mother dealing with her son committing a school shooting.

A History of Love {Nicole Krauss} : Beautifully written story about love and loneliness.

Any suggestions?

Snow Daze


Yesterday morning it started blizzarding and barely stopped until 6 P.M.! All classes were cancelled today, which probably hasn’t happened in a decade. My campus is covered in igloos and snowmen.. it’s fantastic.

Food Shelves



I would love to hang any of these above my stove. Maybe they would inspire me to bake my own bread… something I’ve wanted to do for far too long!
