ich liebe.

I've been a little MIA around here for a few days--can you guess why? Hints: paper, sums, Civil War library books, Moby Dick..

Uh-huh. School + everything else that fills up my life has been doing just that--filling it up. But here I am again, and in the spirit of upcoming Valentine's Day (which is a favorite holiday of mine), and just to be spontaneously random, I thought I would share with you some of the things I love. 

So. Things I'm loving this week? 

>>lowercase letters. i know it's being spoiled, but it's just so easy to forget CAPS and start lovin' lowercase.  iadoreyoulowerletters! 

>>pinterest. umm...can someone say DOUBLE LOVE?! i have been having so much fun on my pinterest--that place is literally a treasure trove of eye candy and inspiration. i think my fingers are getting tired of typing, "LOVE!" "::FAINT::," "GASP," and "WANT." all the time...


>>paris. okay, so i'm far from a globe trotter, but i think i've been bitten by the travel bug (thanks, pinterest). and i am certain as ever that i want the eiffel and cobbled streets to be in my future. 

>>newborn photography. i know from recent experiance that babies = extremely hard to capture. but i am adoring all of the newborn photog ideas i am suddenly discovering all over. how cute is that ^ boots idea? 

::faint:: <3 <3 <3
>>amazing dresses. okay, with me, this is always a love, but i have discovered tons of utterly incredible fashion masterpieces this week, and I just had to share this ^ one. okay, ladies, gasp, please. THAT. SKIRT. EQUALS. LOVE. 

Violet canopy.
>>solitude. sometimes it's nice just be quiet. peaceful. stop the chattering--and even the thinking. favorite verse for this week? 

"Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth." 
(Psalm 46:10)

>>wedding cakes. okay, i'm a little far from matrimony at this point, but one is never to young to admire wedding cakes, right? this ^ one is gorgeous. 

>>swings. i have always loved them. and always will. speaking of amazing dresses...pardon me while i gasp at the pinkness and fairytale-ish-ness and enchantment. 

Light, movement, beautiful.
>>sunlight. here in the northwest, you lean to treasure the sun. this past week has been a gorgeous indian summer, with skies of azure and weather mild. it's reminded me of how much i love the sunlight, and how much i miss warmth. 

>>plans. i've had some fun plans this week, ranging from dates with friends to movie nights and blog post inspirations. i love lists, so here's a sort of program for what is (hopefully) coming up this week at lucia, etc

-two giveaways (yes!)
-february photo challenge (calling all photogs!)
-creative Scarf Tying tutorial (better late than never, right?)
-a valentine photo shoot (mm-hmm..)
-DIY Apple Pie Pops (double yes.) 

So, there you have it. Some of my "Ich Liebe" 's for this week. What are your's?
