The blog has been full of inspiration type design/home/fashion roundup posts lately without much personal content, so it felt like the perfect time for a 'Life Lately' update. These posts seem to only happen a handful of times a year now that Instagram is my go-to for sharing pieces of my life, but as I've mentioned before, I really do enjoy putting them together from time to time. It forces me (in a good way) to take a few minutes to sit down and look back over the previous months. People always say that as you get older, time passes more quickly. And at least for me, I think they're right. It's good to intentionally reflect every now and then, and these posts allow me to do that. (And also share a little more about the real live person behind this blog!)
These last couple of months have a mix of extremes - a lot of time spent indoors hiding from freezing temps in late January and February followed by endless outdoor activities centered around hot weather and sunshine in March. (There are a couple of shots above from our time spent in Arizona this month - I'll share more details and pictures from that trip later this week.) It's been that strange time when my least favorite part of the year transitions into my favorite, when grey skies and lifeless trees and short days begin to be replaced by color and budding flowers and later sunsets. It's kind of cool to look back over these photos and see how this time of year is represented through them.
As always, you can view more peeks of what I'm up to on the daily over here. So what about you? What have you been up to during this winter to spring transition time of year?
