...True or False? - "Incessant happiness is attainable."


I know that I've spoken about this topic on here before, but I felt a desire to delve into it a bit more in today's post. This matter is something I think about quite often; the subject of happiness and all that this basic yet enigmatic word entails. Because I could take this discussion in nearly any direction, I'll start straightforwardly with a question:

Are you happy?

Trip to SCOTLAND: A Photo Diary

So...I'm back! After quite a crazy July, I'm finally home and ready to start cranking out some posts once again. I figured I'd get back into it with a simple post on my 10 day trip to Scotland. I mentioned this trip in my previous post, but I'll recap a bit. We began our adventure in Glasgow (we being myself, my immediate family, and three of our close family friends), where we briefly explored, ate, shopped, and wandered. From what we saw, it was quite a beautiful city (despite the sudden shower we got caught in -- all was good though, we found shelter under a tree during the ten-minute downpour).

Cafe M I L K - Edinborough, Scotland


I want to start by apologizing for the poor image quality (all iPhone pictures)... I'm currently in Edinburgh, Scotland -- seemingly casual but pretty crazy to me. Basically, the wandering I've been doing around this stunning city is the motive behind today's post. We arrived here Tuesday and have spent the past couple of days sightseeing & eating (as one does when traveling). To avoid a dull narration of our past couple of days, I decided I would focus in on one of the cafes we visited -- my favorite to be exact.

Etcetera, etcetera... (ft. OOTDs and Reunion Rendezvous)


As this post is being uploaded, I will have just of touched down in Scotland (!!) for a week's long vacation. The reality of the trip's proximity hasn't quite sunk in yet. Even so, my excitement is through the roof.

With the Scotland stuff aside, I figured I'd feature two of my favorite people in the world in today's post: my sister, Grace (who you've met), and my incredibly stylish friend, Casey.

(Healthy & Wholesome) Cherry Coconut Scones


While I was making a smoothie the other day, I came across a pouch of frozen "Dark Sweet Cherries." Due to a lack of other frozen fruits, I decided I'd toss them in with a banana and other miscellaneous berries to form a random concoction of whatever was in the freezer. Before adding them in, I figured I'd taste-test a couple. Soon enough, a couple became a handful -- which then become multiple handfuls. These cherries were so incredibly delicious, I was sure they had to be infused with sugar or some other sweetener. When I checked the ingredient list, only the word "cherries" was listed. I was pleasantly shocked. Thus, I subsequently decided I had to find a way to incorporate these delicious cherries into a recipe.

My Summer Bucket List

I'm a list-maker. Yes, I'm one of them... I can't help it; there's just something about a written brainstorm of tasks, goals, dreams, groceries, cute boys, or whatever else the mind conjures up. I'd also say I'm a fairly ambitious person, one who dreams big and craves achievement. There's one thing I lack though: an authentically adventurous spirit.
