just plain awesome

{photo by andria lindquist}

- the mister was having one very stressful night a few days ago, so at precisely 12:18am he woke me out of bed, asked me to come to the living room and bring my hair brush. and there we sat on the couch, in the dark, while he brushed my hair.

- listening to this and this over the weekend. just little things i needed to be reminded of. i promise they are worth a listen to enlighten the soul.

- this above image. andria is a magicial. seriously, her work is breathtaking to say the least. wanting another reason to do a photoshoot somewhat soon with mr. taylor and somehow recreate this to a tee.

- spending hours on end planning out the future with mr. taylor on an old giant envelope. i love hearing him get excited for all our little adventures!

- having the restaurant play the justin bieber pandora station on repeat the full two hours we were there.

and those are just a few of the many things making me smile as of late.

  14. Talking about future dreams is one of the best parts of being married. It's definitely something to get excited about together. We sometimes drive around and just look at houses and talk about where we want to live, raise our kids, etc. All very exciting
