Birthday Week List!

It’s been a great week. Shoot, it’s been a great month. November is my favorite month, not only because my birthday falls right in the middle, but also because the weather begins to change. The leaves on the trees around my house are finally changing. The one across the street is a bright red and I know that once it starts to go, the tree in my front yard will follow a few days later. I’ve lived here almost ten years and you start to notice those sorts of things. Why though? I want to know.

  • I received a wonderful (for the most part) Stitch Fix. I might freeze, but the I’m-not-sure-if-it’s-black-or-navy dress is going to be my 30th birthday outfit.

  • Had our first book club in a while. That was actually at the end of October, but it was still great. We’re currently reading my pick, Life After Life by Kate Atkinson.
  • I’ve been reading like crazy. I like it when I’m like this, devouring everything I can get my hands on. I’m almost through all the A Song of Ice and Fire books and I need to slow down with that. Basically one left and I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to leave it alone very long. Lots of poems, a short story here and there. I love reading!

Sunday Morning Coffee

Here I am, back in Oklahoma. Boy did it ever pull out all the stops to welcome me. Everything is in bloom and I’m either in the middle of some terrible allergic reaction, experiencing my first cold in a long time, or building up to a sinus infection. I don’t really know, but I don’t feel so hot. Lemon, ginger, and honey are getting me through.

Over-brimmed with spring

♥ Some old things can be a good idea. Postcards are one of those things. – Just Grace, Charise Mericle Harper
♥ In the shadows that she paints
  Lie the stories she can’t tell
♥ short stories
♥ walks in the city
She will raise the windows high
Let the light come streaming in
And though the wind will burn her eyes
She will learn to breathe again

♥ studying maps
♥ letters in the mail
♥ new babies
♥ the last of the frosty sunrises
Here in the moving shadows
I catch my breath and sing—
My heart is fresh and fearless
And over-brimmed with spring.
– Sara Teasdale
