the perfect sunday.

{stone mountain climb with em and tav}

nothing to get you out of a funk
like a perfect sunday
with beautiful weather and your favorite pals.

(the frozen yogurt, french fries, and new grill didn't hurt either)

here's to a new week. xo.

say it over and over again...

{via black eiffel}

is it just me, or has this year been a little tough on us so far.
at work we have been calling it "black 2011"
and we are kidding...sort of.

but there is good news.
its going to be sunny and 70 degrees in atlanta today.
i think things are turning around.

i love this.

{via francesca}

a little reminder
because 2011 is a little bumpy
and a little grumpy so far
and there is nothing like a little ghandi
to put it all into perspective. right?!

things lost during the storm...

1. snow days.
2. personal time away from work.
3. my diet.
4. my sanity.

i mean really. who gets stuck at work during an ice storm? I made the best of it by eating all the candy in the office and drinking free vino from the restaurant. oh and that snow day i never got...i am unofficially taking it today. and guess what...the sun is finally out!

spring are you out there?

farewell to 2010

{by jonas peterson}

in a time that's all about change...
it's fun to focus on the possibilities of a new year.
i love this time. i love change, fresh starts.
but it's also hard to say goodbye.

because when i look back at 2010, i feel nothing but joy.

i just wanted you to know.
i feel so thankful.
