Because I don’t have a working scanner or internet readily available at my apartment, this had to wait until I had a free afternoon at my parents’. 
I did this while on vacation- it was really good to draw again after so long. I think it’s been at least four years since I sat down and did some major sketching. I am very glad I did this, as I told myself I should draw something while on vacation and thus I made it a goal for myself. I would have sat on the porch for hours anyway, just looking at the landscape while rocking away in one of the many rocking chairs, so I figured I might as well draw a little window/portion of it to take back home with me. Above the sketch is a written description of how the cabin and its natural setting feels. And, as I noted above as well, I now totally understand why blue ink pens are sometimes the preferred drawing medium. 
It’s one of my favorite places.

Not sure why you needed to say this under anon, but I do appreciate it nonetheless. So thank you! Take care of yourself!

And on vacation right after the reception. At the farm.


To counter-act the poop post from the other day. 

These were the best pictures I could find from our wedding reception on the 21st of June. 

The toast given to us by our amazing friend Kyle, and us cutting our tiny, chocolate mocha cake from Pattycake Bakery!

These were the only two really traditional things we did during the party, which is how we wanted it. It was a low key evening with awesome food, lots of my family, lots of his friends, and running around trying to soak in everyone and everything. 

My only regret was that only two of my friends came- and they were a married couple themselves. If they hadn’t showed up I would have had solely family at the party. It kinda made me realize just how lonesome I am here in this small town, and I need to fix that. 

And as a note- I am about 4 inches taller than my husband Phil.

(This post in a nutshell- being pregnant, overly emotional and letting life get to me are not a good combo.)

I’m a cashier at Dollar General.

I help at least a hundred customers every day. 

To 90 out of those 100 people I am invisible. They don’t acknowledge me, my humanity. I’m just another cog in the system.

Often customers raise a fuss because they can’t save fifty cents like they wanted. People are rude, or angry, or trying to control their horrible children, or talking on their cell phones. 

Rarely does anyone make eye contact. Rarely does anyone SEE me, see the fact that I’m a real human being behind that counter scanning the shit they want so they can break it within the next two weeks and come back in a buy more. Capitalism. 

I’m a little bitter. (Ha)

I try to hold on to the good 10 people who come through, but at the end of the night I just want to go home and cry. 

I’ve lost most faith in humanity. I want to buy land, build a house, and never come out for at least 15 years.

What is that!

mim its a lighting bug or whatever they light up

WHAAAAAAT THATS SO COOL HOW DOES HE  DO THAT! ITS JUST A BUG BUT IT LIGHTS UP

lol it had never even occurred to my that there were parts of this planet where lightning bugs are not indigenous

I AM SO JEALOUS I WANT TINY LITTLE BUG LANTERNS 

I live in rural Ohio. Around the 4th of July there are usually so many lightning bugs, if you find a good field and it’s dark enough, you can see thousands of these awesome bugs light up in waves over and over again. It’s an amazing thing to witness.

Summer is creeping in.

Sleeping Bunny kitty under peony shadows. 

Finished my baby blanket. 

The joys of a small town- you can bike just about everywhere.

Did big girl things today.

Called about the electric and gas for the apartment.

Got the car title signed over into my name.

Switched over the insurance. Dealing with USAA was literally the high point of my day. It’s so easy to work with them, and they’re so wonderful at explaining things. 

Possibly got internet service figured out.

Found a doctor I’d be okay with calling for a first trimester check up. 

It feels good getting this stuff done, but now I want to go home and just read the rest of the day.
