ShareBeing in Tune with the Season It’s 5:59 PM, and although today itself hasn’t been very eventful, the past couple of days have been non stop exhausting. Now, I haven’t hopped on the Christmas music train just yet, unlike most of my Facebook peers, but I am guilty of utilizing Spotify for its ‘Autumn Acoustic’ playlist. I am in the right… Read more →
ShareCleaning Up the Mess I am so behind. This post should have been written last week, but we were busy Cleaning Up after a Hurricane. I will say at the outset how very lucky and blessed we and the rest of our family here in Florida were. The Hurricane wobbled, taking the eye just a bit west of the… Read more →
ShareHello Again— O Deer Friends It’s been some time since I’ve had the opportunity to sit down and collect my thoughts. (In fact my boss asked me to come in today, to which I had to say no for the sake of my sanity.) I have wanted to catch you up on what’s been going on in life and say hello… Read more →
ShareThey say April showers bring May flowers… Boy, I hope whoever they are is right. My first month and a half of living on my own has been, metaphorically, like a string of successive storms with a few days of sunshine in between—much like the season of spring itself. I am mostly writing to remind you all that I am indeed… Read more →
ShareMoving Forward…Adulting With January almost over, (already?!) and February quickly approaching, I feel as though my start on this year has been a tad late. I made no resolutions in December, so much as I made a ‘To-Do’ list for my long time boyfriend, Zack, and I— things we should have finished a long time ago. Now, I’ve only achieved one thing… Read more →
Share(Ornament Appreciation) It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Well it sometimes gets below 75 degrees now, and the city lights have all been decorated with wreaths and ribbons. If you look, you’ll probably spot more than one palm tree festooned with lights. Happy Holidays in Florida! Despite the fact that my home state is the least Christmas-y of all, it hasn’t… Read more →
Share I have a small chalk board in frame that was a Christmas present from one of my daughters a couple of years ago. We generally change it seasonally, and since Gaia is the true artist, I wisely have had her take over designing and drawing our seasonal design. This is Fall through Gaia’s eyes! Read more →
Living in Florida, the signs of Autumn are scarce— the slight temperature change only trickling into our Sunshine State, leaving us now at a *crisp* 81 degrees. The smell of the Cinnamon Stick branches Publix begins to sell in mid-September, and the discarded ‘pumpkin spice latte’ Starbucks cups littering the ground are redolent of the season change for us. These sights and a few others are what tips off any native Floridian that, “Oh hey, it’s Fall.” Unfortunately for me, I am still naive to this false promise of cooler air, and the propaganda that consuming everything pumpkin-flavored will make me feel more seasonal. Ahhh the problems of a sometimes-basic-girl. But, I digress. I still go along with the time of year via home decor (Hello Target dollar section!) So below, I have created a gallery of some ways I symbolize late September-mid November in my room. Pretty mediocre, along with some quick DIY, but hey, I’m on a hostess’ budget!
To wrap up this quick blog post up, I just want to include my final wishes for the future. Fall is my absolute favorite season, which is pretty ironic considering I have never experienced a real Autumn (That I remember anyhow.) I’ve been a Florida girl for nearly my whole life and I’m ready for a change. Unlike a good portion of the United States population, I am over the beach. I am tired of the hot weather and the palm trees. I’m ready for real seasonal changes and fuzzy jackets. I’m ready to hear the crunch of brown leaves underneath my feet. Once I learn how to successfully ‘adult’, (Oh yes, it’s a verb in my generation.) I plan on leaving this state, or country for that matter, to find somewhere I belong. Or maybe I belong nowhere in particular. I’ll never know until I do some traveling. Wow, I get off track fast. Anyhow, to commemorate the first day of fall, Zack and I took some pictures with leaves. Cute right?Finally Giving Up.
ShareO~Deer (Remember Our Name) My past two weeks have been insane, I hardly felt the end of August brush on by, and now September has quietly crept its way into my 2015 (Beyonce) calendar. Aside from dying my hair and taking care of a new eyebrow piercing, I just recently started a new job. I am hosting at a newly… Read more →
In the introduction my grandmother wrote about me a while back on this website, she called me ‘O-Deer’s Style Maven.’ If we’re being honest, I should be O-deer’s ‘So-far-not-super-active-member-because-I’m-a-frazzled-young-adult.’ That’s not so catchy, though. Anywho— on my quest of finding another model besides myself, (Since I’m beginning to look like a pretentious self-portrait photographer) I have recently
begged asked my two younger sisters for their faces as my next subjects. Luckily, I have a one sister who needed some maternity shots done, and another sister who is not exactly camera-shy. They’re both gorgeous individuals, and not to mention family I can use at my disposal 😉 However, in the future I hope to work with more local photographers/models for variety and self-education. I’m using my instagram (@spacecatontherun) for networking and it’s working pretty decent at the moment. Anyway, without further adieu, Alyssa and Natalee…
(Imagine you just heard “Dun dun dun dunnnn!” and their names magically turned into marquee letters.)
