favorite moments | 2014

 Gosh, 2014 was a crazy year. I had a super wordy post typed out in which I reflected on the past year, but ultimately decided not to post it. Though I personally benefited from the exercise of going through my year and putting some of its major events into words, it was more than I like to share here.

So instead, I’m going to highlight my favorite moments of 2014, just like I did last year. Because even though 2014 was tough, it still had more beautiful moments than I can count. God is so good and gracious and faithful. I hope you know that.

We are quickly approaching the quarter-year mark of 2014! How did that happen already? Do you feel like the first half or last half of the year goes by fastest? For me, the first half always seems to fly by.

February was a pretty good month…

As I reviewed my calendar, events and happenings seemed rather sparse, so I did a little math. Here are the findings: Continue reading

january / the month in instagrams

¡Hasta la vista, January 2014! Click on the photos to read the captions.

I’ll be repeating this “insta-month” series every month this year. Instagram is one of my favorite social media platforms to use, so it just makes sense to bring it to my blog!

I don’t exactly know how to describe this month. Continue reading


IMG_5189I know my previous post was rather cryptic and reflective. I actually did much more reflecting during its writing… you only saw a fraction, and even then, I took longer to hit “Publish” than I ever have with any other post.

The tone of this post is anticipatory. I already mentioned that I am so ready for the new year, and I thought I’d share some of what I’m excited about. Continue reading

calendar | free printable

 A couple of weeks ago I felt like designing a calendar for the new year. So I did. Then I felt like sharing it. So here it is, available for you to download and print if you’d like! I made it really simple- just a new photo [of San Francisco] every month, large opaque numbers to write over instead of boxes, and plenty of room for notes.

If your printer will print full bleed, definitely do that, because that’s the look I was trying to achieve. Mine won’t, so I just printed it at 100% and trimmed the edges (about ⅛” on each side) with a paper cutter. You can put it in a frame and write on the glass with a dry-erase marker, or print it on nice paper and hang it up. I hope you like it! (P.S. September is my favorite month on this calendar.)
