Trying Something New-ish

Remember just how indecisive I was back when it was time to get my bangs cut? Yeah, I think I’ve taken it to a whole new level; I’ve started wearing my bangs a different way just about everyday. Some days they’re straight down the front, some days pulled back, and, now, side swept. Yep, I’ve listened to all your beautiful advice and I think I’m in love with my current, short side bang look.

We’ll see just how long my love lasts, though, I’m still Miss Indecisive after all.

In other news, what I may have failed to mention when I first introduced you to Matt is that he lives over in the other Washington. So I’m eagerly counting down until his plane lands tomorrow afternoon and I get a big old hug.

What this also means, is that you can fully anticipate cute coupley pictures with Marci and David because we are having our first real double date! So be on the look out for way too much cuteness sprinkled with a heavy dash of ridiculousness because you know things are going to be epic when the four of us are all in one place…with cameras. Ohhhh heck yes!

The Simple Joys

Yesterday I had the most amazing gluten free muffin and as I was devouring it in a little g/f bakery in Seattle (mad props to The Flying Apron) I started thinking about how important the littlest things in life are. This muffin was amazing and, as I was telling Matt about the muffin experience, I realized just how special I felt having a baked good I could eat.

When my food allergies thing came up I felt like I lost out on a lot. I couldn’t eat any of my favorite foods, in trying to maintain my social life I had to watch my friends eat those foods, and if I accidentally ate something I am allergic to I felt like utter crap. But, now that I’m about a year into my allergy free diet, I am really savoring the feeling of not only eating a delicious and moist (so rare in g/f baking!) muffin that doesn’t make me feel like dying but also the enormous satisfaction of feeling normal. I was able to walk up to the counter, order my food without asking any questions, and eat my food with a peace of mind that’s rare for someone with multiple food allergies. This was huge for me.

Maybe I’m simple, and that’s ok,  but it’s the small things that make each day worth living; whether its a gluten-free maple nut muffin, or a sweet text message from Matt, or  a sweater with sequins cascading down the shoulders- it’s these fine details that break up the monotony of routine and make each day special. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized I can actually give myself this gift by not only buying awesome muffins and sweaters but by taking the time to notice the flowers, birds, sunrises and sunsets, embracing what is, and letting go of what isn’t.Kels 6Sweater & Tank:Target//Scarf:Fred Meyers//Jeggings:Express//Boots & Bag:Lucky Brand//Belt:Charlotte Russe

It’s the simple joys that make this season special, so please go around noticing them and help create the experience for someone else if possible. And by all means, eat delicious muffins while wearing sequins, I promise you won’t be let down.
