This is going to be a short post. I've suddenly become very busy/stressed so I just wanted to take a moment to share this message:

Drama "queens" get a bad reputation, but let's be honest, we can all be drama queens sometimes. (Not to mention that term is really sexist to begin with). Due to lots of different circumstances I've found myself being really dramatic lately, having some mini to mild breakdowns and maybe being a little whiny. It's not "mood swings" or "pms" or whatever. We can all be dramatic sometimes and that's fine, if someone says otherwise, I think they're lying. When I'm getting that way I feel ashamed, like I don't have a right to get frustrated or up in arms or something, because it can't really be that, bad right? As if.

Who cares? If you're feeling dramatic, be dramatic. 

I'll leave you with this ultra-fitting song.  Own it.

safari parkin' in iPhone photos

Philip and I had been trying to go to a Safari Park nearby for several weeks. After dealing with weather and sickness we finally made it on Sunday. It's basically a big park that where you buy food and drive through feeding the animals from your car (if you've never been to one). They also have a mini zoo with some more exotic animals. I really hate zoos, but this is fun. I still get kind of depressed seeing camels and zebra and moose and all cooped up, but at least they've got a bit more space than usual. I don't mind there being deer there though, at least they're not out getting shot and run over.

Anyway, I took a few photos with my iPhone while we were there..

fall is coming

i love in the fall in the fall in the fall

when the leaves stick to wet pavement
ghosts, ghouls, and magic
halloween + christmas is coming
no more oppressing green 
nostalgia in the air
sweatshirts and cardigans and tights and scarves

candles at night
early sunsets and cold skies
cold and blankets
layers of socks and leggings
books, large chairs, tea, and hot chocolate

mashed potatoes
space heaters and fires
so many colors and the promise of snow
