home sweet home

i’ve officially been living at home for a little over a week now.
i’m still so happy to be here!
i miss j and nc (okay, parts of nc) terribly but i love being able to stop by my grandparent’s house whenever i want, get barq’s root beer on the regs (for whatever reason it’s hard to find in nc) and be apart of the hustle and bustle that is inevitable while living up north.

here are little recap of my first week back at home:
cold in chicago
one morning it was beastly cold.
i had to wear a jacket.
in june.
so wrong.
(also, leo is an expert at photo bombing!)

got bangs!
and i love them.

had this bomb breakfast with my fam on saturday morning.
it was impossible to eat it all and i totally had every intention of bringing it home to share with leo but i left it in the hot car for too long.
dang it.
my grandparents always have flowers everywhere in the summer so my mom and i helped make this little beauty.
i’m quite fond of it!

i’ve also unpacked all my stuff, gone out for coffee at least half a dozen times, met up with a bunch of friends, snuck into my cousin’s dance show, did some shopping and…
this is very exciting news. i was a barista for a small cafe in nc for a while and absolutely loved it.
not so much the owners but i really loved making coffee.
totally stoked.
today is my first day so wish me luck!
hope your monday is off to a great start!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
