Personal Updates

It’s a very interesting time in my life right now.

You know that cliche about your life being chaptered? Well as much as we all hate cliches, as we grow older we realize that they’re very real parts of life. Frankly, if they weren’t so faux paus I’d have started this with “Today is the first day of the rest of my life”…(*shudders* No. No I wouldn’t. I have at least 10 years before I get that corny). Anyways, all cheesiness aside, I can definitively say I have started a new chapter on my life. This chapter includes a new home and community, a new challenging career, and some very big changes in my relationships. I keep asking myself “when will I every figure all this out?” questioning where I am and what’s next. But I know deep down that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Because really, where else would I want to be?




A Beautiful Mess Photo App

I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever but it’s finally here! A Beautiful Mess‘ photo app is available on Google Play! I’m obsessed! The only problem is that the day it came out was the day I got my new Moto Maxx so I had no photos to choose from. We all know that won’t last long. The app is 99 cents which I know you’re like WOA. MONEY? PAY FOR APP? Yea, I hear you. I’m always scouting out the free crappier version. But THIS glorious app is worth every 99 pennies! It’s so fricken cute! Check out all the adorableness so far!


The second I got home I had to try it out!

I’ve even started downloading some of my older photos and abeautifulmessing them!



Borders and Collages Oh My!

Eek! I love it! I do keep running into issues where I try to put too much stuff on my photos and they get cluttered (see the previous Thanksgiving blog post – there is ALOT going on). I’m getting the hang of it and I love it! If you want to play with mine before making the big splurge let me know! It’s so cute!!

It has gotten SO cold here the last few days. The freezing weather has me wondering where the last two months have gone. It’s November people! MID-November! Thanksgiving is coming, then Christmas, then 2014! Who put all these holidays together?

I’ve hardly taken any photos lately…

And so I’ll just cozy up with some hot tea and Adobe Illustrator. See you soon!
