    Determination

     You guys have no idea how difficult it was to take pictures today. I mean, getting out of bed is hard. Getting dressed in real clothes is a victory. And putting on my own shoes? That, my dears, is almost impossible. I mean, when you’re only six days away from your due date, it’s a miracle when you see your feet, much less reach them. But after the struggle of getting clothes and shoes on, I triumphantly came downstairs only to realize that 1. it was raining, and 2. the tripod is in the car. Which my husband drove to work. Still, I was determined. After all, this might be…

    Happiness in a package

      As soon as I got this hat, sweater, and these gloves from Oasap, I had to wear them all at once. So, you know, this is possibly not the most elegant outfit ever but I am SO in love with these items I don’t even care! I actually wouldn’t have even gotten this hat if it wasn’t for my husband saying “But it would be so cute!” Thank goodness he convinced me! The inside of the hat is the softest fleece you’ve ever felt, and it’s nice and thick and warm. The gloves are lined with super warm flannel… and who can resist the fur cuffs? Love. This sweater,…

    Blues

    I wore this yesterday. As I sort of predicted for myself– mostly because of the weather– I didn’t get this week’s posts pre-scheduled by Saturday. But I’m still aiming to post five days this week! Hopefully the weather will comply. I really need to get in the habit of asking Mr. Owl to go take outfit pictures with me– it’s not that he’s unwilling, it’s just that we start having too much fun to go take pictures, or we get distracted by something else, and then when I finally remember to ask, it’s too dark/raining/insert-another-weather-condition-here. And the weather has been extremely temperamental lately! Such as yesterday. We had just barely…

    Coffee Goddess and Sitting Dog

      Would it be entirely vain to say I absolutely love these pictures? The lighting today was fabulous. I just wish some of the fog had stayed from earlier. *sigh* So dreamy! Today, I was told by a new customer that I was basically his coffee goddess. This was before he tasted my coffee. I’m just, you know, that good. 😉 Actually, he was very thankful that we were open before 4am, and also that we have white coffee. You know, I’ve never really understood the pull of white coffee. I think it smells like peanuts and tastes like… well… watery peanuts. And who wants to drink watery peanut juice?…

    The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

    I sort of match the book I’m currently reading. Is that weird? And also, is it just me, or does this angle make me look abnormally skinny? I’m not saying I think I’m fat or even chubby, or that people who are as skinny as that picture makes me look are abnormal (weirdos), but I’m not that skinny. By any stretch of the imagination. I was thinking the other day about body image, how there are so many different opinions of what a perfect figure would look like, how there are so many different things about yourself that you might hate and another person would love to have. I’ve always been…
