song #17// Where Is The Love?

So 14 years later and I still feel like this song is so accurate, which also makes me a bit sad. 

Let's be real y'all. This world is insane and sometimes I feel like it's only getting worse. 

When this song came on in my car today, I turned it way up and started belting the words (glad you weren't there, I know). But seriously, where is the love? I don't understand hate. Anger, yes. But hate? Especially for races or people you've never met? Why hold on to that? Love is so much more freeing and sometimes I don't understand why people can't just try. 

One of my favorite quotes is from MLK, Jr. "Hate doesn't drive out hate, only love can do that". 

I don't know about you, but I'm going to keep trying to find the positive in everything, to hug my loved ones a little harder and longer, and love more.

song #16- The Man

Austin has been singing this song and I have to say, it's one song that I don't mind now being stuck in my head. 
Love this new song by them!!!!

(above photo from our anniversary trip back in July to Chattanooga. such an amazing trip!!!)

This blog is really inspirational. Check out her instagram too!

This blog inspiration post is definitely jam packed of inspiration!

I can't believe I just found out about this....this site allows you to look up CW shows by episode and check out outfits of main actors to get their "look"!  (Don't judge me for the show I was looking at- I just started watching (okay binge watching) Hart of Dixie.)

This art print is very me. NEED IT!

Yea, I'm pretty much in love with this cottage in the Bahamas!

An agate chandelier??? Yes please!

In case you haven't figured it out, I am a huge Harry Potter fan, so these behind the scenes from the movie series are some of my favorite things!

I'm in love with this giant list of craft projects from this amazing blogger!

This clutch is sooo stinking cute!

I wish I could be this creative!! Seriously, this woman inspires me so much!

Talk about creative... these awesome designs created by brush pen of different cities is just amazing!

A friend of mine and I went to John Crist's comedy show tonight. He is seriously hilarious! And his shop has some great things that I need in my life.... like the bumper stickers that promote marathons I can get behind (13.1 hours of binge watching Netflix).

currently....and disney

Currently .........

reading Memoirs of a Geisha. This is a book club pick and while I am not too terribly far into it, I am really enjoying it. It's sad though.

watching The Wire. Okay, I know it's been off the air for what, a decade? But Austin put it on the other night and I got addicted. Currently binge watching Season 2.

listening to everything. I keep trying to add songs to my spotify list. My goal is to make the most amazing list of songs that I love so that they rarely repeat. Right now I have only 140 songs. But I keep going back through old mixed cds from friends and trying to find new songs from artists. Currently, listening to Handsome Furs, The Raveonettes, Swell Season.
If you have any recommendations, please tell me!!!

thinking about the stupid hurricane- Irma. We here in Florida had a rough go of it, but luckily she left us quickly. (And even more luckily, our family didn't have any serious damage!!!)

dreaming of Disney! I want to go back asap.
(below photos from our Disney day a couple of weekends ago).

 new ears!! actually, first pair!!!

 the whole crew <3

 probably my favorite picture!

song #15- September

I absolutely love this song. As far back as I can remember my mom would play Earth, Wind, and Fire and we would dance and sing (in the car, living room, weddings....wherever). It is just such a happy song, with so many happy memories attached to it. 
And of course, it being September 2, it's quite a fitting time to share it.

This month has started off so awesomely (and I'd like to think the good vibes from this song help, ha!)

Football season is here!!!!! My favorite season, y'all. And Auburn's first game was a WIN!!!!!
Austin and I are also planning a Disney day for this weekend. So double win! 

Happy Labor day all!

thank you

To everyone that read and/or contacted me about my last post about my dad, thank you! I cannot express in words how much it meant to me to know that so many of you still remember him or know the feeling. I truly felt surrounded by love and the lonely, scary feeling evaporated. 

So thank you for reaching out! I wish I could give all of you a giant hug!

xo, kel

PS- a little cuteness to brighten up your day:

This print is my life. 

Andy Warhol inspired print. 

These heels are so south florida to me (and I love them).

I really, really want this adorable dress. 

These DIY earrings are adorable!

I'm getting really excited for Fall... and these outfits are definitely helping!!!!

I have been completely obsessed with this game for a few months now. <3

Has anyone else been watching Big Brother this season? I'm totally #teampaul 

Game of Thrones bath bombs? Yes please!

I'm kind of in love with this maxi skirt. 

Yes, yes, yes. I've become a total fan of stones as jewelry lately and this is right up my alley.

I feel like this canvas quote needs a home in my classroom.

I need this Harry Potter shirt. Like ASAP.

If you are a teacher and you have not seen Eddie's videos, you must!! Even better is if you can see him live! I swear I've never laughed so hard.
