Slow Down

My heart beats so fast sometime.  
For those of you who know me, you know I am a do'er (however you spell it).  I become obsessive over getting things done.  What I mean by this, is that I do not do a good job at stopping. I have never been a napper.  I like to get things done.  For example, almost everyday at work I make a to do list for when I get home.  (i.e. exercise, paint my nails, work on this, attempt to sew that)  That is what I mean about obsessive.  I have always had this crazy urgency to get things done.  It kills me that I only have about 5 hours when I get home from work to accomplish all the things I need to.  Partly, because I do not want to be one of those people who always talks about what I want to do and never actually do anything.  Or pins all the prettiest things on pinterest and never actually act on anything.  
Anyways, this week has been pretty stressful at work so I thought I would just share some nice pictures I have come across lately.  Not my typical post, but these pictures are very befitting of my mood. 
Also, check out this video by Kinfolk.  Beautiful, right?  Kinfolk is quickly becoming one of my favorite blogs.

The pictures can be found here, here, herehere, and here.

***The last picture is an Ethiopian coffee of my favorite things to do.

Much Love,


  1. This made me laugh, because I am the exact same way! Sometimes it's a great quality - but sometimes it makes life more stressful - like when I plan out my entire weekend and actually SCHEDULE in relaxation :) Anyway, these pics are really pretty - and love your blog!

  3. I love the photo of the river in the mountains, so lovely! And I'm like you, if I plan to do something or make something I have to finish/do it soon, very soon, otherwise it starts to eat away at me and make me crazy!


  4. Beautiful pictures... they make life so sweet. I am kind of like to get the things done, the little things i mean. It's a good thing actually just don't forget to stop and smell the flowers sometimes otherwise life becomes too stressful. Have a nice weekend!


  5. Beautiful images - the second one is my favorite :)


  6. Gorgeous images and one thing that has helped me get things done is focusing on one task at a time. Sometimes I get so scattered that it is hard to get one thing done because I'm constantly seeking the next. Sometimes slowing down and focusing on the task at hand works. :)

    I'm having a giveaway if you have time to stop by, enjoy your weekend!

  7. Ohh, the first photograph is incredible! <3 The art piece looks truly dreamy!
