THINKING about how much I have grown as a person in the last six or so years. Do you ever just look back on a memory of something you did or something you said and think, who was that person? Was I really like that? It's amazing how many little puzzle pieces God puts together in our life, each one adding to us and making us into what He has planned all along. It's quite a beautiful thing to grow as a person.
ENJOYING my discovery of podcasts. Previously the only knowledge I had of podcasts was that they were for the sports obsessed or for emotional teenagers (an idea influenced by my faint memory of Peyton from One Tree Hill creating podcasts...which I think resulted in a stalker?). But let me tell you, I was so wrong. There is an entire world of podcasts out there that I had no idea about. I really want to share some awesome channels with you, but I have a lot of catching up to do first. The current channel I'm listening to has over 100 episodes. I have a lot of listening to do.
PRAYING for wisdom and guidance...honestly in every area of my life. So many decisions to make and ideas to contemplate. I have so much room for improvement in many areas and recently I feel as if I'm on a time crunch. I'll be turning 25 in early 2015 and it feels like the birthday immediately following that will be 30. Aren't I supposed to have life figured out by then? Please say no.
FEELING sleep deprived. I had a yucky cough for about three weeks and it's still kind of lingering unfortunately. The nights with cough medicine were great, but since I haven't been taking it all I do is lay down for sleep and immediately start running to do lists and plans through my mind. It's never ending.
WEARING a mix of everything these days. Kentucky weather really cannot decide if it's ready to jump on into fall or let summer hang around a little longer. Not to mention that it's chilly when I leave for work in the morning but some days very hot by the time lunch rolls around. What's a girl to do about her wardrobe?
NEEDING to take a break. I love that so many awesome opportunities have come my way in the recent weeks. I'm grateful and I truly want to enjoy it. I've just been feeling a little overwhelmed with accomplishing everything I want to do as well as everything I have to do. So, I need a break. I'm not sure what it is I need a break from exactly, I just know something has got to give.
WANTING to start a lot of fun projects when October rolls around. I have found so many great projects to be a part of in this end of the year season. I'm contemplating on joining in on the #31days hosted by the Nester, but I feel a little uneasy about coming up with 31 days of writing about the same topic. What would you like to hear about, style, blogging, faith/inspiration? And I'm also considering creating a capsule wardrobe for fall...and hopefully every season after that. The brains behind the operation is Caroline from Un-Fancy. I'm almost certain I will be undergoing to capsule wardrobe shift, so stay tuned.
CREATING to do lists, plans, and dreams (a constant them of this post, apparently). And it's like part of my brain is just constantly daydreaming and thinking about the possibilities of the future. It's really a good thing, it just makes it harder for me to focus on the things right in front of me. I suppose I need to be creating a little more balance in my life.

And if you haven't already done so, don't forget to take the Ladyette Fall 2014 Reader Survey! It would really mean a lot to me if each and every one of you gave me some feedback!
