currently.


top: forever 21 / skirt: c/ o eshakti (use code MCHLVELLY for 20% off thru 3/20) / tights: we love colors / shoes: c/o Blowfish Shoes (last season) / necklace: c/o Le Mode Accessories / lip gloss (elsa) : c/o Radiant Cosmetics / bracelet: c/o Posh Locket 

loving life and the warmer spring temperatures here in Georgia.
eating lots of salad lately. i think it's the change of warmer weather that is making me crave it more.
obsessed with this midi length skirt from eshakti. i've never owned one this length before but i think i'm obsessed with it. it's def flirty in it's own way and the loud pop of grass green makes me giddy about shamrock shakes and all things green next sunday - this skirt is super fun to twirl around in.
watching season 2 of Parenthood. never thought i'd get into this show but i am completely hooked. love that it's all about family, and the characters truly pull you in and know how to make you cry or cheer.
reading Traveling Mercies by Anne Lamont. it's actually my second time to read it and she can still suck me in with her raw honesty and hilarious wit. i also finished re-reading The Faith of a Writer by Joyce Carol Oats, which is def a book i recommend for any other writers out there. i love her brilliant insight on the world of writing, particularly fiction and short stories. 
learning a whole freaking lot, so much so that i don't really know how to put it down on paper just yet. i've written lots in my journal but if i were to hand you my journal, i think it might sound like a whole lot of pieces to a puzzle that are slowly being pieced together. and it hasn't all been cupcakes and pretty flowers - there is def some pain and disappointment and doors closing that comes through any learning process; however i actually find it all exciting rather than confusing because i sense that God is really working in my life in this season. i just can't wait to see how it all unfolds.

what are you currently up to, friend? and if you have your own currently list, include it in the comments - i'd love to see! as always thanks to dani for the inspiration behind the currently posts. 

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}
