This post originally appeared on my Paper Swallow Events blog. I've been divvying up my personal and business blogging, so I'm transferring the personal posts over to this site.
Happy Wednesday, Friends! Michael + I are in Oklahoma at the moment enjoying time with my immediate and extended family. I'm having a great time showing him places that I remember from my childhood, and we're loving being near my family. We don't get to see them nearly as much as we would like! I thought it would be fun to try this taking stock type of post inspired by Meet Me at Mikes and give you all a glimpse of what we're up to. If you want even more updates, you can follow me on instagram where I will be occasionally sharing photos of our antics with the hashtag #PowBasOK2014
Making: Priceless memories with my family.
Cooking: Roast and cherry cobbler with my mom.
Drinking: Lots of water and Sonic happy hour slushes. It's hot!
Reading: Old Valentine's that my aunts made and sent out.
Playing: Fetch with Millie, my grandparents' dog.
Wishing: That I had more time here and that I could restore many of these old homes to live in and for weddings.
Enjoying: Laughing with my siblings, hearing my grandparents' and parents' stories.
Liking: What my friend Sarah of Sarah Becker Photography is announcing tomorrow.
Wondering: How to find my dream home within my dream demographic.
Loving: Old photographs.
Hoping: That all of the HUGE dreams I've been dreaming come to fruition.
Marveling: At how strong childhood nostalgia can be and how much it can effect the way places make me feel to this day.
Smelling: The comforting smell of my grandparents' home, which I swear is the smell of happiness.
Wearing: My favorite green shorts and navy blue tank top.
Noticing: All the little details of my grandparents' home that seemed so huge when I was little and are so small now.
Thinking: Of how fun it would be to restore an old home.
Giggling: Over random Skype conversations between long distance friends and the silly things my brother does.
Exploring: The nooks and crannies of my grandparents' home and between the covers of their photo albums.
Planning: To seize the day and make things happen when I get home.
What are you taking stock of today? I'd love to know!
Hello, I'm Stacia!
I believe that adventure exists even in your back yard, that beauty can emerge from every day moments, that creativity can take many forms, that makeup washes off at the end of the day (so why not have a little fun!) Let's be friends!
