Days Like This...

I am longing for days that look like this.

Days that are green.
With late afternoon sunlight
that cascades a warm golden glow over everything it touches.
Those days where you can smell the scent wet earth, decomposing leaves and of pine pitch as it warms throughout the day.
Days where I can stand alone, but never be alone.
Yes, days like this...

Since posting last: Some photos + some happenings

I keep saying to myself that I am going to post here...
And then time whizzes by.
Some days, I don't even know how the world seems to turn so quickly.

There has been a lot on my mind lately, but as much as I am told I am good at communicating, sometimes I just feel like I can't put it all into words. Or that I have enough words.
We have been trying to manifest a move, a super life change. It is taking a while, a good + solid lesson on patience, I guess (not my forte). But I feel things shifting, our new life drawing nearer and I am riled with excitement from deep down. Some days I can barely sit still or focus.

Anyway, here are a few things that are either going on or have happened since my last (and very distant) post:

1. We have gotten a butt-load of snow. I mean like record breaking! It is starting to melt now though (Hooray! I am ready for green and less clothing!)

2. I bought myself a bathing suit on a whim the other day (you know, just to be ready)- now I just need to get my butt in bathing suit wearing condition, ha! Do you have any favorite ways to get in shape? Or a type of movement that you enjoy?

3. I moved my shop/website to a new space. The old etsy shop is still up and running, but I am looking to move away from that platform, maybe all together. You can find Little Owl HERE.
I would love to know your thoughts! Do you like the look, the layout, etc.?

4. Also, I have many new things in the works for Little Owl, some of which are new designs and new styles to be brought in. I have a new print on a new dress style that you can find HERE.
Also, there are now a few men's tees in the shop as well!!!

5. We were totally sucked into this and now I pout every once in a while because we can't watch the 3rd season yet. Boo!

6. I was super excited to do a trade with this awesome lady.
I am totally in love with her work, make sure you pop by her shop and take a look!

7. I have been having itchy feet and the immense feeling of wanderlust. We are planning a trip later this spring. Hopefully flying into Denver and traveling down to northern New Mexico.
I. Can't. Wait.

8. I have never been a runner, but lately all I want to do is go for a jog (read: run a little, walk a little, repeat. Especially since I have 2 puppies + a 13 year old dog who likes to take her time).

9. I signed up for a nature exchange. So fun!
(I hope I can find a few things to send under all this snow!)

10. For my birthday a few months ago I gifted myself this.
I have been wanting this deck for ages and it was a great decision.

11. I have taken quite a few photos since my last post.
If you want to see some more, make sure to pop on over HERE to see...
