HI HI HI HI.
If you follow me on the Instas, you know I spent the long, holiday weekend in North Carolina with one of my favorite people. The trip ended an up-and-down August with a much-needed mix of relaxation, good food and more wine than my 31-year-old body can handle. I crushed a Southern chicken biscuit at Krankie’s, hiked at Stone Mountain State Park, caught up on girl talk, endured a three-day hangover and got lots of Maizey cuddles, which are the best.
I’d like to say I’m looking forward to a quieter September, but I’ve overcommitted to life, per usual. However, one thing I’m determined to do is start blogging regularly. I’ve got more Peru photos to post (including Machu Picchu!), brand new design work, a closet minimalism update and a few more blog ideas brewing. Plus, inspiration for the return of my favorite season: FALL.
Hope you had a restful Labor Day weekend, friends—enjoy the short week.

Marie Kondo and the Ruthless War on Stuff. “But when it comes to stuff, we are all the same. Once we’ve divided all the drawers and eliminated that which does not bring us joy and categorized ourselves within an inch of our lives, we’ll find that the person lying beneath all the stuff was still just plain old us. We are all a mess, even when we’re done tidying.” via Rachel
“I’ll never know, and neither will you, of the life you don’t choose. We’ll only know that whatever that sister life was, it was important and beautiful and not ours. It was the ghost ship that didn’t carry us. There’s nothing to do but salute it from the shore.” Cheryl Strayed
