i will no longer be using this blog
i will be blogging here!
i decided to make the change because WordPress no longer fulfills my blogging needs ;)
i have used blogger before.. and i didn’t really like it, but i’m giving it another shot. i’ve customized it to how i like it, and i’m gonna stick with it!
so, from here on out you can find me there, but you can still read all of the archives from this blog! they’ll stay here for a while :)
be sure to click the little "follow" button once you visit the new blog!

sooo lately, as in a few hours ago, the boyfriend and i were texting it up, because i was on a forever long trip to florida (i’m here, and comfortably..on a couch. boo). we were making plans, and talking future stuff.
i’ve never been in a relationship that i’ve been able to do that…at least not in a serious sense. & its exciting.
we talked of how i’ll be starting college this fall, and i’ll be done in two years (!!!) if i pursue the culinary arts program, with my focus being baking & pastries.
of course, this is my dream job. owning my own bakery & cute little place to call my own. being able to have the creative freedom to build a business how i want it. i love the idea. however, we were thinking in terms of how realistic that idea is. of course, that got us on a whole other topic (my high level of indian blood. ha!)
then we started thinking…how possible is it for me to plan a wedding while finishing school? and how the heck will we pay for the stinkin thing?
we are way in over our heads, and i think we both know that. but for some reason… there’s a sense of security in all of it. its quite the lovely feeling.
anywho… just some thoughts. i mostly can’t sleep… so this is the product of my newfound insomnia :)
p.s. while the boy and i were talking bakeries and businesses, and how springfield will most definitely not need a 4th bakery (and not to mention all the coffee shops that offer pastries & baked goods…), and how that really upsets me because i LOVE springfield. i love this area of missouri with my whole heart and i never ever want to live anywhere else… and the thought of having a business here that is exactly needed kind of upsets me. he then asked me if i would feel better if he took me to see Band of Horses in october in kansas city. ummm yes. i do feel better:) perfect boyfriend award goes to tyler. :)

i’m super grateful for all the wonderful people in my life. you are seriously the best. :)
last night, i stayed the night with colby and we watched Bug (creeeepy) while dreaming up ideas for painting on his wall. we found the perfect lyrics to paint above his window, but they don’t exactly match the look of his room. we then got ready this morning and went to olive garden for lunch (and ran into cassie there), and went to target… it was lots of fun. simple & fun. i love my best friend.
anyways, i’m going to clean my craft-space and start working on some new projects. i took a too-long break from crafting. i was feeling like all of my creativity was leaving me, so i took a well needed break to regain some inspiration and such. i think i’m ready to get back into the regular swing of things :)
so, that said, this was just a quick little filler post. hopefully tomorrow, or wednesday i’ll be back with photos of some of my new projects, plus some of the projects i made in school, that i never took photos of :)
i leave for st. louis on thursday, and fly out to nyc from there on friday morning! i’ll be gone till monday night, so i probably won’t blog until tuesday or wednesday next week :( but at least you’ll have a crap ton of new york awesomeness to look forward to! :D
love love you
p.s. i have a bone to pick with you! i realized i get a ton of views on my blog everrry day, but i don’t know who you are! so stop being shy & say hello. i’d love to meet you :) xo.
