Well. It appears I took a two week unplanned break from blogging. I actually can’t believe that it has been two weeks. So many things have occurred in that time frame. The Fourth of July, a visit from my parents, a visit to Brooklyn, I scrubbed my kitchen floor… it’s all been exhilarating.
One of the big days that we missed was my twenty four and a half-th birthday. That’s a real thing, right? I definitely made a birthday card for 24.5 last year for one friend. That means it’s real.
Just in case you felt like you wanted to get me a little something, I decided that it would be fun to make a half birthday list. Besides, this is taking some of the pressure off as I’m trying to figure out what to do for my twenty fifth birthday still. Crazy.

What would be on your half birthday list?

List: 101 Blog Post Ideas
An oldie, but a goodie, it’s so easy to forget how many awesome options there are for blog posts.
DIY: Recipe Book
I really need to work on creating one of these – I love that it looks like a scrapbook! I probably also really need to start cooking.
Website: Home Wedding Registry
This is an awesome idea. Instead of creating a wedding registry, people can contribute to buying part of a house. And it’s animated.
This is Just Cool: Dear Fork,
I also found this piece of art through Elise’s blog. It’s hanging on her wall. It’s worth the read.
