Blueberry Breezes


Good morning world!

I woke up to a cool breeze flowing in my windows, whispering ‘It’s Friday’!!!  I basically bounded out of bed and went straight for the blueberries.

I thought about baking something with these, but decided I didn’t have the patience.  So, I enjoyed them in a bowl of oatmeal.

I’ve been eating a lot of regular peanut butter lately so I opened a jar of sunflower butter from the KERF shop to switch things up.

I ate this oatmeal while watching Ellen and I just have to comment on how sexy Penelope Cruz is.  I can’t get over her beautiful accent.

On another note, yesterday marked the two week anniversary of beginning my blog. I bet some of you are wondering if I’ve taken back my twenties yet.  The answer is no, not yet.  Right now, it’s easy to enjoy the long days of summer because I’m only babysitting. The real challenge is going to be fitting everything in when I start my internship on the 13th.  To be honest with you, starting a blog has actually left me feeling even more overwhelmed.  Because blogging is new to me, it’s still takes a long time for me to write a post, but I think it will get easier. And, I love it!  It’s a bit stressful at times, but it’s the good kind of stress because I can channel my energy into posts. I’m really really enjoying blogging so far and I find myself getting excited about little things I’m doing because I get to write about them later.  While we are on the topic of blogging, I also wanted to ask you guys how you think I’m doing.  Is there anything you’d like to see more of (or less of) in my posts? I’ve had one request to do a post on fitting in workouts and meal-prep during busy days, and I hope to touch on that soon.

I also wanted to thank you all for the wonderful comments!!!!  I really appreciate the readers who have stuck with me as I’ve struggled with photography and tried to find a blog ‘voice’ in my first posts:)

    Love the blog! My only suggestion would be to make it visible in Google Reader 🙂 For some reason, new posts don’t show up. Awesome job though!

      I asked a few people who also use google reader, and the new posts seem to be showing up. Maybe try re-entering the address? There could be a problem because I switched from blogger to wordpress…

      Sorry about this!

        It finally worked when I searched for your blog name in Google Reader instead of directly typing in the URL 🙂 Thanks!!

    I understand loving blogging but also being overwhelmed at times! I love your blog. My two cents would be that when you start your internship maybe posting only once or twice a day. It helps a lot on busy days! 🙂

      Thanks! I think I’ll probably only be able to post once a day when my internship starts and I’m sure I’ll have to skip days here and there:(

        I know, it’s tough! It’s overwhelming but still such a great feeling when you can post often. You’ll find the balance that works for you! I’m sticking around no matter what!

    I’m a new reader to your blog. I’ve been to Boston twice, 1 short and 1 long trip. I loved it there.

    I would suggest showing some pictures of Boston, or where ever your social like takes you. I’m into photography those type of things on blogs.

    BUT of course, it’s your blog so you should post what you want to write about. There’s no pressure.

    I write a lot of topics on my blog, not just one thing. Someone commented recently that they liked that.

    I’m new at blogging too and juggling a lot of things, but I enjoy it so I keep at it.

    You have fantastic style! – I think you should share some fashion tips; if you like! 🙂
