Monday Moments

Hello there! A lot has been going on the last week! The Captain and I are moving! We are squeezing it in between two graduation ceremonies this week
Twill be grand
and crazy
but mostly grand :)

I've been trying to drink more water. Mostly successfully. I made this chart thing to make sure I knew about where I should be at in ounces by time of day. I also started using this app called iHydrate.
I'm not really sure what it's doing for my body other than making me a lot more friendly with the feeling that I may soon pee my pants. But I'm just going to trust that it's helping me in some unknown way.

I've been trying to give myself permission to mess around with watercolor and hand lettering. I feel like sometimes I get locked into one way of thinking and then everything starts coming out the same. I actually kind of stole the idea for the letters on "darkness" off a doodle I saw someone do in church a few weeks ago. But hey, I thought it was pretty awesome. And you know what they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And let's be honest, 90% of my hand lettering has been imitating things I've seen done before. 

We didn't have a redhead for the blonde joke, so I wore red.
Just kidding. That was simply a happy accident. Also Ensign Peak is lovely this time of year!

It's been awhile since I posted a picture of my little Soleil, and she was just too adorable not to secretly take pictures of while she was sleeping.

Currently reading:

Yup, it's a guilty pleasure. I feel like a lot more people like it than are willing to admit it. I'm unashamed.

I've been trying to be more positive and happy every day and so I will leave you with this quote:

"We can complain because rose bushes have thorns,
or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses."

-Abraham Lincoln

Thanks for reading! I hope you've had a fantastic Monday! :)
