Asker, Norway

I went on a hiatus for the last few weeks because it started setting in that summer was ending and I really hadn't prepared for school. During my time off I was able to heavily plan the design of my classroom, redesign lessons and handouts and really get myself excited to meet students and see former students on Tuesday.
Before I went to Norway last month, I researched the weather weeks out, checked Instagram geotags, and even followed some Norwegian bloggers to get an idea of what the locals were wearing. As I saw the temperatures in the mid 50-60s and locals wearing shorts and tank tops, I thought to myself "are these people crazy?! That's not nearly warm enough for those clothes!" (I later found out they were right and changed into the same attire at the cottage) and I packed plenty of pants and long sleeved shirts, just to be safe.
The day we visited central Asker followed the day I got a horrible sunburn on my legs and I had to wear pants to protect them from the sun. Thankfully we had another day with beautiful weather and I was able to pair them with my favorite bell-sleeved top.

Have a great weekend! xo

More Is More

 I've always been a fan of a good statement piece, whether it be a pair of novelty shoes, or a bold and playful piece of jewelry. I spotted this bold ban.do necklace with words to live by at Home Goods for a steal ($0.70!!!) and couldn't resist. I paired it with a trendy, off-the-shoulder top and a fun pair of flowy, flowery shorts and a bold lip for an afternoon of Pokémon in the park.

This n That

August 2nd already?! Where has the summer gone? There are only twenty-two days until I go back to work. Although I've enjoyed my time off and not waking up before the sun comes up, I am excited to return to get my classroom set up and see my student's creative thoughts come to life.
This post is a few days late because Kyle and I had a very busy weekend, finding a good realtor, and figuring out a long-term living arrangement. I finally feel like the apartment is complete after 11 months of acquiring and arranging furniture and decorations. I'm just waiting for a nice sunny day (the apartment has awful lighting and very little natural light) to be able to photograph and share how I've styled the space I call home.

Martin Janecky is considered to be one of the best glass sculptors working today and it's not difficult to see why. He has been working with glass for thirteen years and has his work exhibited in museums around the world.

As I've previously mentioned, my family has adopted two dogs from Speranza Animal Rescue and I'm always amazed by the wonderful things they do for dogs that wouldn't have had a chance at happiness otherwise. About a month ago, they rescued a Boston Terrier from near death with the help of the incredibly devoted people at Dillsburg Veterinary. You can follow Libre's journey on his faceboook page

In honor of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child being released last weekend, I'm sharing a truly inspiring nursery that pays tribute to the wizarding world.

Thanks for stopping by! xo
