Thinking-Out-Loud

1. Oh, hi there!

Smiling Selfie

I thought I’d start this post off with a smiling selfie to make up for the RBF I slapped you guys with last week. Remember how I said I’m more comfortable with not smiling for pictures? I’ve noticed that it mostly applies to selfies, and I think it has to do with the fact that whipping out a smile when I’m just randomly taking a picture of myself just feels a little forced and fake. Right? No? Just me?

2. But seeing this while I was out driving definitely brought a smile to my face…

You know those muffins I whipped up last week? The soft and tender ones made with lots of lemon, blueberries, Greek yogurt, and oh my? […]

Happy #thinkingoutloud Thursday! No idea what I’m going on about? Click here!   1. The other day, my mom (aka: Spoons’ biggest fan) asked me why I never really write any serious posts any more. “You used to write such thoughtful and personal posts,” she said. “Now the last one I remember you writing is the one from […]
