Friends! HI!!! 😍👋🏻 That was a rather unexpected and lengthy Instagram break, but the past few months have been simultaneously gratifying, exhausting, fabulous, and stressful, and unfortunately, posting to social media fell to the bottom of my to-do list.

I shared this in a live video a few weeks ago, but Mr. Paperly and I went our separate ways this summer. After finding a new place to live and packing up my life in about 4 days, I drove west, and then east, and then north, and then south, and then north again. Living out of my car for 6 weeks, while working full time, was incredibly challenging, but, equally as amazing.

Moving in to my new place and starting a new life was super exciting, but not the easiest mountain to climb. Going from living in an apartment with someone else, to living in a house by yourself, is a strange - but oddly beautiful - situation to be in.

Shortly after moving, my grandmother passed away, and I had to take some time and wade through some deeply-seated family things. You know, the kind of things that are messy and heavy, and the only way out, is through.

I'm still dealing with some of that, so won't be posting as regularly as I had been (but Paperly has been open since September! Don’t worry!) but I'm finally starting to feel a bit more-like myself, so I decided to (hesitantly) jump back in.

The main point if this post, though, is to thank you guys SO MUCH for sticking around over the past few months. And not only for sticking around, but for checking in when you hadn't seen me post in a while, or for sending a message just to say hi. I know I haven't gotten around to answering a lot of those, but I can't even begin to thank you for taking time out of your day to reach out. ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for being amazing, and ummm, I can’t wait to share my actual real life studio with you guys!!

We didn't make it this year, but this is one of my favorite November drives - the Talimena National Scenic Byway in Oklahoma. One of the best spots for fall colors only a short drive from DFW. Colors usually peak about the 2nd week of November - a great late season option. Photo taken November 19, 2016.
★WWOOF: World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms★
Want to travel somewhere, but are worried about the cost of lodging & food (top 2 travel expenses)? Check out WWOOF!!! You get to stay with locals, learn about sustainable, organic practices, & can explore the communities around you from 1 week up to 3 months fo FREE.
How it works: For a small annual fee, you will be given access to a directory of organic farms from ALL OVER THE WORLD. Literally almost anywhere. You pay/are responsible for your own transportation to said organic farm. Once you arrive at a farm, you will work for 5 1/2 hours each day for at least 6 days, in exchange, you will get a free place to stay & free food!! You get to hang with the locals, meet other WWOOFers from all over the world, & have the time (&money saved from not spending it on lodging & food) exploring the wonderful place you are in!!

I LOVE WWOOF. I’ve met some of the most fascinating people. I’ve often had the healthiest, most delicious meals at these farms. I’ve gotten to learn so much about lifestyles so different from my own. I’ve been able to save money, AND explore wherever I want. It is truly a super fun experience, & I would recommend it to anyone.
Когда пришёл увидел и все понял
Парк, очень однообразный. По честноку, можно заехать, проехать первые 30 минут и развернуться назад.
Джошуа Трии и кактусы очень клевые, но это не стоит того, чтобы наслаждаться ими 3+ часа 🤷🏻♀️
When owner Erin Thwaites opened @Bel Boutique years ago, she had all intentions of devoting its selection to unique home décor.

नमस्ते Namaste. I bow to you.⠀
In seven letters, this word communicates a deep, divine appreciation of our oneness. ⠀
It surrenders to all as our teachers, whether we find them inspiring, infuriating or mundane.⠀
It’s decision to confront the best and the worst on this planet and acknowledge that those same tendencies live inside us all. ⠀
This word clears the duality of good/bad and right/wrong and starts to see the miracle in 𝑒𝓋𝑒𝓇𝓎𝓉𝒽𝒾𝓃𝑔. ⠀
So, I bow you. All of you. The messy, human parts. The luminous divine parts. The hurt parts. The painful, broken parts. ⠀
I bow to the parts of you that I don’t understand. I bow to the love and the confusion. The pain and the joy. The beautiful and the ugly. ⠀
Can you find three hidden miracles present on this Sunday morning? Seriously! Tell me below. Let's share in appreciation.
