Jour de pluie

Hi there!! 🙂

Soooo…the complex I live in has painted our homes GREEN! Can I just take a moment to say how much I love it?! It certainly livens the place up and gives it a tropical vibe, in my opinion. It looks so cheery!!!

It’s a rainy week here in California – and a warm rain, at that! A long scarf adds some visual interest to the grey dress and is comfortable.

I’m so happy that Daylight Saving Time is here!!! Hooray for longer days. It’s a treat to get out of work, go home to eat dinner, then be off to my typical Starbucks chill out session and it’s still light outside.

Sunday, I tried something out: I turned my phone off for the day. It was so relaxing! I learned that things like texts can wait (unless it’s an emergency, of course) until I find a good time to dedicate to replying, and that way, I am giving it my full attention. I’ve been making it a personal goal to check my phone less; I’m typically not glued to my phone anyway, but I’m trying to appreciate my surroundings to the fullest even more so lately.

Now, my laptop on the other hand?? We are very, very attached. And I don’t want that to end! I may as well be married to my laptop, quite honestly. Blogging, uploading my new jewelry posts onto Etsy, making new digital illustrations, researching things…my laptop hosts so much! ❤

have made it a point to put my phone and my laptop away at least half-an-hour before I go to sleep, and dedicate that time to reading. I’ve noticed I’ve been falling asleep faster, so that’s good!

  1. The green do look very nice ! I feel like you should enjoy spring even more that way ahah! Also I totally get you with the no-phone thing, I actually do that quite a lot on weekend 🙂 But there’s no way I’m letting go of my computer ! I should really try but I just spend so much time on it watching tv shows or editing video and photos… I would like to read more tho, maybe I should take exemple on you and start reading before bed 🙂

  2. I love the green too! Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day :). Your phone experiment sounds interesting; I totally get being attached to your laptop, though. I laughed when I read the part about you two being married, LOL. Finally, I love the picture of the raindrops. It’s amazing how something so simple can be do multi-faceted. You really captured it!
