LIFE LATELY.



Blogging is a funny thing, no?  You have to be perpetually inspired to write a good post.  And what's the point of blogging if your posts are no good?  So yes, I've been gone forever.  My poor Maple and Shade always falls to the wayside when life gets busy, or stressful, or uninspiring.  And it's (...and I...) fallen victim to all of those things as-of-late.  But I guess we don't have to have life figured out at 26, and I guess M + S doesn't have to irrepressibly halt every time I start thinking I need to get a little more serious about life. So, here you go...we're back...and here's what life has been like lately:


We paid a lengthy visit to our old (umm...beautiful) Kentucky home


where i acquired a gorgie new niecey...


and a handsome new nephew...all in a week's span of time.


we watched UK win the bball championship...
and discovered blue bottles do grow on Kentucky trees!


Easter came around, and we had what was, quite possibly, the ultimate backyard easter egg hunt.


Very best friends...


...and their pups...came to visit...


and we've eaten good food...


and made good...


and pretty food.


I finally painted and decorated long-ignored things...


and watched our yard grow and bloom in this springtime sunshine.


We've played on the local beach...


and of course in the sand...

all-the-while trying to figure out what to do with these so-called lives of ours.
so no matter what happens, and where we end up, and what we end up doing...it's nice to remember that we have it pretty good. but, if you have any career ideas (or, umm...jobs) feel free to send them my way :)

so good to see you again!! 
xoxo

Yay, you're back! I missed reading your blog! I guess life's always a little unpredictable and I don't think it's supposed to be figured out....it takes the fun out of trying new things! :)

Life is just right when you're posting!

I hope you're doing well and we can catch up on life again some day.

You're just wonderful.
