Hello, friend!


I've been enjoying our new home so much that I've found myself taking an obnoxious number of photographs. Given that Mr. CP loathes having his photograph taken, I'm fairly certain he may rethink this whole marriage thing if I continue down my current path. Only kidding, only kidding. Ish. I've always been a bit of a dabbler when it comes to hobbies and crafty pursuits. I'm fickle that way. So, I suppose it was only a matter of time before I decided to try my hand at taking photographs. Like any new skill, it requires patience (oh gawd, does it require patience!), and practice. In unpacking our belongings, I've came to the conclusion that there are almost no photos of us. In point of fact, I can count on two hands the number of photographs of Mr. CP and I, which is in large part what inspired me to start taking more photographs.

Now that I'm settling in, I'll be able to post with greater frequency. What have I missed while I was away? What have you all been up to?

Favorite Quote


I've always loved this quote. It's a reminder to treat everyone, even the cruel and hateful, with kindness and understanding. People are beautifully complicated, aren't they?

Weekend Fun


I'll be back later this week with an outfit post. Now that Mr. CP and I are starting to settle into our new home, I've been steadily building up a backlog of outfit photos. Theoretically, this means I won't be a sucky, absentee blogger anymore. Happy boogie!

Inspired by Katha and several other bloggers, I've decided to start doing weekly Instagram collage posts every Monday. I've been snapping an obscene amount of photos with my phone lately -- in fact, I'm planning a DIY home decor project that makes use of some of my favorite Instagram photos once I receive the prints in the mail.

Mr. CP and I had a date day at the zoo this weekend. What did you do?
