the cUTEST thing ever made from pallets...

I'm in love with how Lori Danelle turned these wooden pallets into the cutest little bed for her daughter. I'm digging the proposal of raw pallet wood in a kids room & the contrast of pink bedding, alongside other colorful items that would normally fill a kids bedroom. It's refreshing, isn't it?

Seeing the Everyday

I just subscribed to this magazine called, SEEING THE EVERYDAY. It's an advertisement free magazine with articles focusing on relationship building during the common and ordinary moments in life. I think it may be geared toward parents raising a family: regardless, it should be relevant & relatable no matter your age. Plus, it will be a killer coffee table book. Also, a really great gift idea, don't you think? I'll let you know after my first subscription arrives.

I can hardly believe it's the SECOND September that i wiLL NOT be returning to schooL. It's bittersweet -- maybe a little more sweet -- but the month and recent brisk weather is giving me acute nostalgia for my college friends & town. i'M desperateLy wishing i could enjoy a perfect, chilly air bike ride down the red cedar trail, meet tiffany for coffee on the couches at Raw Deal, make a much needed ice cream trip to WALMART at 3AM with juLie, talk greeting cards, weddings, and current events with racheL at Caribou, count on coming home to the light on - no matter the hour - someone always awake & willing to sit at the kitchen table with you, their computer, a cup of coffee, and advice. My heart is smiling - i lOVE you girLs & i miss you Menomonie. i'LL see you soon, okay?
