fall in love

I saw this on my main page of facebook from a film networking acquaintance. He says, "In NYC and la I fall in love 20x a day I am fickle that way in Milwaukee once or twice a year" I'm happy to report I can fall in love with Michigan the way I would when I saw something special (or ordinary) in New York. and i do it just as often. I'm going to start documenting it more. i promise.

love, kate

play + record

i would never claim to be cool enough - actually i probably would claim NOT COOL enough - to participate in music monday's. my musical knowledge is just not interesting enough. when i find a song or artist i like i play them into the ground. but i can totally get into this:
mix tape monday! i have a totally fond memory of the step-sis and i sitting in the walk-in closet at the (first) lake house making a mix tape for a certain boy she liked. how sweet.

making a "soundtrack of my life" was one of the first things i put on my lifelist. and since that day two years ago i've only added two songs.

so drum roll please!!!

"bitch" - i'm me and no one else, "take me as i am". i can be moody. i can be a bitch. some days.

love, kate

today it's rainy and oh so cold in michigan, and it's dramatically effecting my mood. i made plans with a friend before i slid into this glumness that's striking me at the moment and seriously considered backing out. but i was reading sometimes sweet and she said, "There are definitely days when I actually decide to have a shitty day- I do not choose happiness, and in a way I almost give in to the negative emotions that are always swirling around in my brain."

i know i do that way to often, instead of actively trying to be positive and change my mood i just give in. today i'm not going to give in!

somedays, the pink tights and flowered dress moments aren't right in front of me, but they are just around the corner. 
i would never say my life is hard, but sometimes it's not perfectly easy. 

love, kate

happy tuesday. pink tights and a pretty dress make katy a happy girl. it's the little things that i find happiness in and without them, well life just wouldn't be as great. 

it's the fourth day of may already, but it took me awhile to nail down just three words for the month (remember i did this back in february, maybe a reflection post would be nice.)

myself, awesome, art journal, yard

myself: you know, i'm a pretty selfish person and i mean this in the best of ways. i stick with what makes me happy, what makes me feel comfortable, what i know. but what i want to accomplish for myself this month is to improve. to improve my ability to carry on a conversation without relating it to myself, just listening. and to really focus on eating right and moving my body. just starting in small ways is all i can ask for now.
awesome: eh, kind of a cop-out word, but who doesn't want life to be awesome? i really want a well rounded, awesome month.
art journal: i bought acrylics and two fancy pens. now i just have to follow the prompts and see where this can lead me. yes i signed up for another elsie (&rachel) class! now i just need to get my but in gear! hehe

yard: eek! there is so much to do. weeds to be pulled, dead to be cut away, dreams to be had underneath the white blossoms of a crab apple tree. i have to be patient because it is just may. i can't do any planting, but i can get it ready. i can plan.

love, kate
