dear blog,

today is beautiful & warm & sunny.
i enjoyed a cup of coffee on the back deck in the sun.
i then spent 3 hours cleaning away. jamming out to the new she&him album. {it's amazingly cheery & lovely}.
i cut daffodils from the backyard to brighten up the kitchen table.
i chatted on the phone with friends.
i had cuddle time with g.
i watched sixteen candles again while sorting through bills & paperwork.
i ate smores pop tarts... my favorite.
i dusted with a swiffer duster for the 1st time & i love this thing.
i made a new playlist called .feel good inc.
i strolled around the neighborhood with my boys.
i drank a sunkist with a straw.
& it felt like spring.

love,
chelsea

G loves it too}.
--parenthood is on tonight. i am in love with this show.

--i made fried ice cream for dessert tonight with my mom. 
my favorite dessert on the planet.
--selling two of my photos today to Rae Nicoletti
from kate spade in nyc!!!
{i don't even know what to say about this. i'm floored}.
--the beautiful birds that have found their way back to our backyard.

at this very moment i am:




excited about spring. or rather the potential of spring. 
worried about major life choices, you know, nothing major or anything.
reading east of eden by steinbeck. again.
loving my new room aka the hen den.
creating new playlists for my new ipod. {i can finally hold all of my songs on my ipod}.
hating where i live.
craving fast food {weird for me}.
listening to maybe tomorrow by stereophonics.
watching one tree hill season 1 on dvd {duh}.
wondering where i'm going to end up.


{taking a hint from brooke}.

what are you currently up to?

xo,
chelsea
