Sunshine Sweetness

I recently made the journey back home (Florida) and had a wonderful time.  Northwest Florida does have its charm and I do miss the beach like a girl on a diet misses chocolate cake.  I ran up to DC by train to grab a flight down to Florida.  I know it sounds silly that way, but I love DC so I didn’t mind a pit stop along the way.  I stayed a few days with my mom at the beach and then went back to the country to stay a few with my dad before making the haul back.  It was a perfect time to go to Florida; still hot enough to get in the pool, yet cool enough to not melt outside (July and August can be a beast in Florida).  Here’s my very long photo journal:

Hope you are having a great day.  Enjoy! xo♥ Kathryn

August Rewind

August was full of moments with friends and glimpses into autumn’s arrival.  I had such a great time and I can’t wait for September because I know it will be even better – vacation, baby!  I’ve noticed how life keeps getting better and better and how I am embracing the little things even more and taking such joy in the smaller moments.  Being positive and making the most of everything can be a feat sometimes, however, it does make life happier and stress-free most of the time.  I am trying to continually give my worries to God and to believe better things are always on the horizon.  That is my daily self growth (and struggle sometimes haha).  Here are some of my favorite moments from the past month:

Weekly InstaFaves

Hello, my name is Kathryn and I am an Instagram addict.

I love taking pictures.  I snap photos all the time.  My friends are so accommodating (and know that it is coming) they will tell me to take a picture quickly so they can start eating their food.  I lag behind everyone when we’re walking anywhere so that I can get the shots that I want (usually while shouting, “go on ahead, go!”).  It has always been that way and I do not see an end of it in sight.  When I heard about Instagram I instantly thought, “Oh my gosh, it’s my song, they’re playing my song!”  I’ve been dancing along ever since.  The best thing, other people share my love and participate as well!  There are people like me!  I can follow along and share in the small things that delight them and share the things that make me stop and smile as well.  It is great!

Here are some of my favorite Instagram posts from this week:  (I didn’t crop out their screen names so that they get the credit for the photos, none of these are mine, and so that you can find and follow them as well)

…and of course, YoungHouseLove just added a new addition!

I love getting to share in people’s lives & interests.  I’m on there as “steelmagnoliakate” and I get so excited about sharing pictures of nonsense with strangers.  My friends and family can attest to that fact.  I hope that people who share my struggle can relate.
