life at 1000mph

Somehow it is the end of the school year and I feel like I am more stressed than I have been in a while - like life is moving at 1000mph and it is very difficult to brake. All is great, in the big scheme of things. How is it that the everyday routine can be so exhausting and draining? Here are a few snippets from the week...

an excursion into philadelphia for my little sister's college graduation!
and of course, a pit stop for a philly pretzel...
 new shoes (they are already scuffed up a little, ugh)
may flowers. love you. the pollen is pretty overbearing, though...

So, yes, the weekend is extremely necessary. Since our winter was so horribly snowy, it seems like a never ending year. Anyway, I hope to be remedying the constant moving/busy-ness with calming walks, cups of coffee (idk if that is always the best help), and of course, taking pictures. Even of the most repetitive thing - it's been flowers lately - taking pictures makes me just the happiest. And it makes me miss traveling, and the summertime. When things always seem brighter and more vivid. I am yearning for my summer self. I swear its an alter-ego and I wish desperately that I could always be Summer Taylor, or Siena Taylor (that was the best). She cooks, eats healthy, exercises more, gets up for slow leisurely mornings, is tanner yaaaay, and seems to feel lighter, mentally. I keep telling myself, just a few more weeks. Counting down the mondays. It is going to happen, it is going to be here!

Okay, end rant. If you're not sick of me then you should go on over to Elah Tree, where I am included in this month's advice column. Yipee! Click click clickaroo. 


  1. Love love love this! I'm obsessed with flower photos, too. I could take like 1000 photos of my tiny garden out front and never get tired of it. Ha! Oh, and I so wish I could be my summer self year round--there is just something so fun and energetic about summer time that makes me so different.

  2. Be patient girl, summer is right around the corner...any second!

  3. You'll get there! It'll happen! You're almost there. Next time you're in the city have a pretzel for me!

  4. Sweet, sweet summertime! Life is going at 1000mph for me too, hopefully we can both catch some rest, soon!
