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

Weekend Links / / Revival Girls

DSC02223 Guys, it's happening! A Gilmore Girls revival is in the works. Amy Sherman-Palladino (the show-runner) is on record saying she went into the series knowing what the final spoken words would be, but Sherman-Palladino left before the last season finished. If you aren't familiar, contractual disagreements hindered the original creators from returning before the series finished. If anything it'll be wonderful to spend a few more hours with my favorite ladies. Speaking of Lauren Graham, Lauren and Mae Whitman are developing The Royal We into a movie, one more reason to read that book!

Jordan and I both experienced computer issues this week, with Jordan being the only victor. Haha. My nearly seven-year-old iMac has given us worry in the past but this time it might truly be the end. I didn't feel very productive blogging wise but I'm thankful my computer crashed after I backed up my recent files! It's been a long week, friends. I'm ready for the weekend!

Onto the links!

Fall Uniform | I like clothes and styling but I am terrible at selecting an outfit when faced with too many options. I love the idea of creating an outfit uniform guideline to fall back on when time is of the essence! What have you been wearing lately? Yesterday afternoon, we were in the 80s (Fahrenheit) while Wednesday's early morning low was in the high 30s -- I truly don't know how to dress for that sort of fluctuation!

Bold | How a bold outfit can encourage bold life choices.

Track Your Travels | I've always loved the idea of showcasing our travel progress on a giant map. Esther has found several great ideas from large scale art pieces to smaller DIY projects. Do any of you display where you've traveled in your home? One thing we started to do was put our ticket stubs (travel, concerts, movies) in a mason jar. We've had so much fun that we really need a bigger jar!

Overcoming Busyness | When I took a mini version of the Meyers Brigg personality test earlier this year I was surprised with my results: ESTJ. The T (thinking) and J (judging) did not surprise me but the E (extrovert) wasn't expected. I've realized though I can be out and about and spontaneous (with adequate sleep, haha). When unplanned events arise and I'm tired, forget it. I had to say no to a few social events last week and it was hard. But a huge part of taking care of myself is knowing my limits.

Oh So Basic | You might recognize one of the photos Taylor has featured for the week! After scrolling through Instagram for your daily corgi puppy fix (just me?) might I suggest #thedailybasic -- for all of your basic fall essentials: pumpkins, coffee, scarves and plaid!

One more thing...

Jordan and his brother, Josh, are giving away their new single, Damage of Love! Let me know what you think of it!

Happy Weekend, all!
