Month: January, 2013

not because you asked,

business card

but because it’s an assignment for my Internet Marketing class – I’d like to let you all know that I’m working on a Big Girl Website. One day soon, it shall have Real Live Galleries of pictures that I actually took….but for now, you can admire the lovely layout (which someone worked very hard on), send me friendly messages with the contact form, or connect with SMP’s brand new facebook page, Instagram feed, Pinterest board, or LinkedIn profile through the social media buttons in the corner. They are tiny and purple and very exciting.

Here’s the link. Happy Thursday   : )

I think it’s time for some color.

Because we’re halfway into January and I’m starting to miss the way Autumn looked in the Alps.

My mom came and spent a week in Austria with me about two months ago. We spent a day in Hallstatt – a very old, very tiny little town nestled in between a lake and a mountain. We caught her in off-season, so there wasn’t much to do besides walk and talk and take pictures and buy salt.

But luckily for us, that was exactly what we wanted to do. (:

I think I just have one more Vienna post in me, after this. I may draw that out as long as I can, though, because I still have that little piece of it that isn’t over yet. We’ll see how sentimental I can be.

In the meantime – Happy Thursday (:

Some cities just look better in Black & White.

Don’t you think?

This is Jessica. She studied in Vienna with me this semester. A few weeks before we came home, she went into a hair salon to ask how much a color and cut would cost, and they asked her if she’d like to be in an upcoming fashion show. Turns out, she was the main event. A European stylist gave her this haircut onstage.

I cut twenty-four inches off my hair, ten days before I went to Vienna. (actually, that’s a lie. My sister cut it. Not me.) I think that all young women should cut their hair short at least once in their lives, and this is why: because sometimes you don’t know that you’re An International Supermodel until you do. Right, Jess?

And in my case … it’s just easier. (:

What a sweet blessing this list of 1,000 gifts has been this year. To anyone who’s thought about keeping their own list – I can’t recommend it highly enough.  Now is the perfect time to start. 

I had so much fun getting to a thousand, and I still have room in my little book of blessings…so I’ll see if I can get up to two thousand by this time next year. (:
