Today I am going to share some music that has been on my list of favorites for quite some time. I really can't believe I have no shared it already. The band is First Aid Kit, a Swedish sister duo who are so fresh and open you can't help but want to live their bohemian dream. The music has a very folksy feel to it with a very much alternative mindset. Whatever, stop reading this and listen!
And this is not an official music video, but I love this song A. because it's really, really good, and B. because it feature Conor Oberst and I nearly cried when I heard his voice pop up. Hello, dream come true.

Good thing it did not rain! I have been wanting to wear my Dolce Vita boots, but suede and rain are not always friends. However, it did get cold again. -_- I have the sneaky feeling we are going to be skipping spring and heading straight to summer in the bluegrass. I did, however, make the most of it and put together this cozy outfit. None of it was new so I couldn't link anything, but I was pretty pleased nonetheless. At least the sweater was warm and pretty and my legs felt miles long! Sorry about the weird red chair in the background - guess you can't control people leaving ugly stuff on their balconies!

Hi all! This idea comes from Free People BLDG 25 blog! It was super easy to do, and to make it more year round friendly, I chose colors to match my decor. I probably bought all the materials at Hobby Lobby for under $20. You can learn how to make these here. Aren't they the cutest thing?

“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan
Sunrise is nature's gift to all sentient creation. It's a free act of beauty that can fill the soul with admiration and respect for Mother Earth and there is nothing quite like waking up before the sun and watching it peep out through the loophole in our dreams. This week, I encourage you to try and enjoy at least one sunrise. Pay attention to every yawn, stretch, and peep as the light slowly breaks through the darkness restoring the day. In this moment, be perfectly silent, soaking in the beauty of it before life's hassles pull you away.

This week has been.... weird for sure. I actually feel like I slept through it... everything just happened! Apparently I went to Narnia or something because that's what the snow photos remind me of. Oh, and I won some flowers from our leasing office! My husband I don't do Valentine's Day, but free flowers are always welcome!
