Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Currently / / August

Currently / / August Creating | My grocery shopping list, always. :-) And some future travel plans!  Wishlisting | My birthday is next month and my eyes are set on shoes. When I shared the 10 Shoes Every Woman Should Own, I mentioned I lack a pair of versatile heels. Most of my investment pieces have come from saving birthday and Christmas money.

Hoping | I'm hoping (and praying) for peace and clarity. I took an unintentional break from any fertility treatments this summer and it's been nice, but I know that questions still need to be answered and thus the doctor's appointments will need to resume soon. Appointments for the very best reason, of course. :-)  Eating | Fruit and vegetables from our weekly CSA! I'm eating a lot less meat this summer mainly because my refrigerator is overflowing with fruits and vegetables. What is your favorite way to use eggplant? I'm a little lost considering I can't make eggplant parmesan.

Watching | I was telling Jordan the other day I'm having difficulty finishing television shows. I'll begin a new season or series and get about half-way before abandoning ship. I don't seem to have this problem for the shows Jordan and I watch together. Over the weekend, we began Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp which is even better than the movie.

Most days you'll find me watching beauty videos on YouTube. I just have them play in the background while I'm writing or editing photos. If ever I am curious about a product I search for reviews -- it's helped me avoid purchasing duds! Zabrena's eyeshadow tutorials are literally works of art, but her Frugal Fridayz videos are my favorite to watch right now!
