coffee shop thoughts

So I decided to go have some "me time" the other day while Mack hung out with his dad & I thought I'd go get a cappuccino from a popular coffee shop in the area and just hang out. Since we've been so busy with the move for the past couple weeks, I haven't been able to keep up with some of the shows I watch and haven't had much time for blogging or myself and I thought it sounded great to get some good coffee, put in some headphones, and catch up on some stuff.

without a compass, happily

Ever since I began blogging on and off a few years back, I've called my site "Happily Without a Compass". Since then I have considered changing it - it's long & looks a bit bulky in your url bar, it may not immediately make sense to my readers, and it's not particularly clever.

Quote of the Month

This month's quote is actually a Bible verse. I absolutely love this sentiment & I think it can be applied to anyone's life, regardless of your religious affiliation.

Quote of the Month

So I know it's already well into the month. And I know I haven't been blogging much lately. I had a really hard time emotionally and physically a couple weeks ago and I've been struggling to get back into the blogging scene and trying to decide whether or not I'm going to share certain things. But, one post I absolutely wanted to do was my quote of the month. I have a lot of fun with taking a quote that means something to me personally and trying my best to illustrate it and then sharing it with you guys! I decided to do this quote because I know we all struggle with comparison and trying to keep up with your peers with seemingly perfect lives.

Quote of the Month

I've been thinking about doing a "quote of the month" series for a little while now, and I finally decided to just do it! I plan to share one of my favorite quotes in my own hand writing as inspiration at the beginning of every month. Hopefully this will help me get inspired and give me a chance to work on my designs for fun!
