What potent blood hath modest May.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yesterday, while attempting to find a small notebook to use as food journal (I found 3 abandoned ones, in case you were wondering... apparently a pretty notebook can't make one commit to such things), I stumbled across a bucket list of sorts. A things I really want to accomplish in life list. Towards the top? Graduate from college. Check. I'm not sure exactly when I composed this list, but I'm sure it was within the last 5-6 years. And I've already crossed something off. Something big. I had a moment of emotion at this realization.

May has been a big month. 2013, thus far, has brought a lot of life and perspective changes, actually. May has been no exception. I have taken a lot of photos over the past 29 days, and think perhaps it was an unconscious attempt to document said changes. A way to go back and look through my eyes as they currently see the world around me. I assure you the photos themselves won't reveal life's unanswered questions; but they'll give you a peek into what life has been like in my neck of the woods as of late. The rest of this week (and month, really) will be dedicated to this momentous chunk of days.

Blooms. I'm obsessed with capturing them. // "Will someone pleeeeasse switch forks with me?" "Why?" "Three tines is not a fork. Three tines is a trident. Forks are for eating, tridents are for ruling the seven seas." An actual conversation with Jared. I mean Sheldon. If you feel like you're missing something, start watching The Big Bang Theory. Or google the clip. ASAP. // I must have been Jewish in a past life. I could eat a bagel and lox. Every. Single. Day. I love me some schmear. // Just when I thought I'd get a break from scientific journal articles. Oh no silly Sarah. // What's for dinner? Clean out the basement freezer and see what you find, that's what.

I tried a new smoothie at the co-op (I'm smitten)... and it blew my socks off. Holy moly fresh ginger! // Kiddo left me a lovely present on the hood of my car. Even dandelions have a certain beauty. // I'm desperately trying to cut back (even more) on dairy, but can't resist froyo with bursting bobas. Because I'm a 13 year old girl. // My favorite property is on the market. Too bad we aren't buying. I love this house and have since the moment I first laid eyes on it five years ago. // The ivy is taking over. I just adore these tiny pink leaves.


  1. What a sweet present on the hood of your car. :)

  2. The comment about Sheldon made me laugh...by far, my favorite character out there....I even have my very own Sheldon living with me ;) That house is soooo pretty....I would want it too. I don't think I have congratulated you on your graduation...CONGRATS!!! .so awesome to have scratched something off the bucket list...I need to make one of those. You have a sweet son by the way.
