three years!

Today Jeff and I celebrate three years together. Three whole years of traveling, binge watching tv shows, devouring pizza, crawling through windows, stomping around underground, riding bikes, driving really far distances for reasons most people wouldn’t understand,Β  exploring the desert, cuddling pets, eating delicious food – lots & lots of delicious food, daydreaming about the

abandoned china factory

I’ve been holding on to these photos for way too long. It’s one of those sets of photos I just knew I couldn’t possibly describe correctly and wanted to keep all to myself. I like them too much to never share though… A month or so ago Jeff, Jake, and I spent the day exploring.

what I wore : a food baby

Sharing outfit photos can be scary. There are a lot of people who think that because something is published or otherwise put out into the world that it’s up for debate or open to criticism. People tend to forget that behind every single thing there is a real person who is potentially reading these things,

found on the beach

The weather here in Cleveland is finally warming up, at least for now. Everyone knows we’ll probably get at least one last surprise snow storm because that’s just what happens here.

For the longest time I hated reading (thanks to being forced to read things I didn’t like in school) then I read obsessively. The last two years my numbers have

St. Louis Cemetery No. 2

Lots of people have a list of places they’d like to visit, and some people (me) even have a list of cemeteries they’d like to visit in those cities. New Orleans ranked pretty high on my ‘need to visit’ list just because of their cemeteries. There wasn’t one in particular that drew me there, I

Professor has an instagram!

Earlier this week my little toasted marshmallow got his own instagram account, aptly called fessermakesfaces. Yep, I am that lady. Back in March of last year I made him his own hashtag but recently I’ve been fighting the urge to just post non-stop pictures of him on my regular account. After a tiny bit of

rainbows in my home

I’ve been thinking about getting a rainbow maker for a while now. Both my last apartment, and my current one get lots of direct sunlight. Watching that light move across the wall throughout the day is one of the most relaxing things ever. The only thing I could think of that could possibly make it
