Lent 2k15!

Happy Ash Wednesday! It's that time again, folks.

I'm approaching it differently this year, but first, wanted to share this absolute gem (if you're offended by priests on camera, the below probably isn't for you):

1. Don't be a jerk.
2. Honor the absent.
3. Give others the benefit of the doubt.

It's really that simple.

That said, this year I'm taking on a 40acts challenge I found. It's the concept of "doing Lent generously". Every day I'll receive a simple act to do and it's up to me to decide how much time I want to devote to it daily. So instead of giving something up, I'm giving something time.

Should be a fun ride!

all the feelings.

You guys, turning 31 has been one of the best things to ever happen to me. Kid you not. This birthday kinda snuck on me and I've never felt more loved than the love I felt this past weekend.

I was standing in line at Target on Saturday and just felt this flutter. And that flutter was pure happiness. I'm grateful for everything that's happened in this past year and I know - as in, really and truly know - that the best is yet to come.

How cute is The Peg?

love and music.

Leads to lovely music.

Check out this pretty incredible mash-up of love songs from the '60s until now:

Now that's what I call talent: Valentine's Day edition.
