Take Heart

These days, it’s a daily struggle to keep all of my heart here. To keep it present. 
Half of it is still living a small-town-happy past life, and the other half is living a city-struggling-memories life.

 I have so much more empathy now for anyone who moves. The next time a new girl comes up to me, I will say, “I will be your friend! I will sit with you at the lunch table! I mean, get coffee with you!”  
{this section refuses to get on the ‘centered’ bandwagon tonight for some reason…}

Also, I have only unpacked about 20% of my closet, and I haven’t figured out this “why my hair looks so terrible here most days” thing yet, so I’m really limping along here with style posts. Good thing this blog isn’t just about fashion 🙂 
PS> I had to wear this leopard coat because it was snowing. Again.
Wait for the Lord! Be strong, and TAKE HEART, and wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:14
Have a great week! 

Chartreuse & Blueberry

Helllllllllllooooooooooo!

Chartreuse + Blueberry = Delicious Color Combo!

Actual Blueberries + Ginger + Chocolate = Delicious Coffee Cake
And then, because it certainly isn’t hot enough in my apartment {hah!}, I decided to turn on the oven and bake! How could I not with these beautiful wild blueberries? They just pleaded to be folded into a ginger coffee cake, with their buddies Scharffen-Berger chocolate chunks {the good stuff}. I’ve got some pretentious blueberries on my hands, don’t you think? And then this coffee cake demanded to be served with the “good stuff” ice cream for dessert. As if being #1 for breakfast wasn’t good enough! Hmpf. See if I make you again, Blueberry-Ginger-Chocolate Coffee Cake!
Ok, I totally will since it was utterly delicious and indulgent.
