return to innocence

 (photographing my friend Amy, for the upcoming "Inspirational People" post for April! Stay tuned!) 

(my Easter basket from my boyfriend, which is hidden behind our couch.)

   I am currently located on my back porch because it is nightfall and the temperature did not drop dramatically because the sun is behind the clouds. Today really felt like spring: half rainy and gloomy,  half sunny and bright, taking walks about neighborhoods, and taking a quick stop for iced (yes, over ice!) coffee. I try my best to stick to outdoor activities when the season is right, and walk as many places as possible.  This type of weather makes me miss my old loft that was located closer to downtown, but having a backyard I suppose makes me for that. 
   I had a fairly typical Saturday this weekend. I made fine coffee from my french press, went to my newly found favorite thrift store, caught up with a friend visiting from Chicago, and caught up on a new read. I also spent a lot of my afternoon picking out little things for my boyfriend's Easter basket that we decided we would get each other this year. I love making new traditions, in the hope of keeping them year after year.


  1. aww your easter basket! so cute! I adore the color of your dress. Happy Easter Lindsey! :)


  2. Oh, Easter baskets sounds like a delightful idea! I haven't gotten one of those since I was a little kid. I'd love to have Easter egg hunts once we get a house of our own too-even before we have children, hehe. You look simply delightful! That lavender color is such a perfect one for Easter and I love the fun collar too. Happy Easter dear!
