The new Lilly backgrounds are so cute… and I thought it was a good time to change things up a bit. I try to find words to use that relate to whatever is going on in my life. While I’m working on my computer I nearly always have Pandora playing away. The weirdest thing happened.
A song that I have heard hundreds of times and can’t help but sing along every time I hear it finally made sense. Like, the lyrics were no longer just a string of words… it had meaning. Maybe it’s just because I’m getting ready to graduate (are you sick of hearing about that yet?) or it’s the lack of sleep I’ve been getting, but the whole song felt so accurate and relatable.
When was the last time you heard “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield?
Reaching for something in the distance So close you can almost taste it Release your inhibitions Feel the rain on your skin
Yep. Just about sums up my last month on the Hilltop.

Right click on the image.
Select “Open in new tab” (or window)
Right click the image again.
You can either save the image to your computer and then set it as a background. On macs, you should be able to right click and “save as desktop background.”
[Side Note: I feel like rain has been a common theme of recent posts as well… whoops!]

I recommend listening to the rest of the song as well… it really resonated with me and I think it might be my personal anthem for the next month. And likely the month following that as I figure out the whole “life post college” thing.
Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
Fall for me means tailored blazers, touches of corduroy, and cozy sweaters… @jcrew, as always, has us covered with all the classics! Shop my head to toe look with @shop.ltk #liketkit https://liketk.it/4iOR7 #injcrew #ad
When @beaconhillbooksandcafe lives up to the hype and THEN SOME 🐿️ ✨ I got a little tour of this special bookstore from the owner herself and I couldn’t be more grateful. There is something magical about any bookshop, but when one is this thoughtful it’s hard not to fall in love with reading all over again. @sisterparishdesign textiles, @farrowandball coordinating paint, bestsellers & classics commingled on curated shelves. A little squirrel mascot named Paige, with her own story and her own entrance and her own little Boston-inspired house hidden away in the bottom of a shelf. Every detail is perfect, especially those on the children’s floor, where little ones can enter through a tiny door and press a big red button to activate a model train that circles the space.
everything & beyond 🤍 three years ago we were in our tiny backyard exchanging vows in front of our immediate families. in our third year, we leaned on each other through the best and worst times. I’ve never believed more in choosing a good partner for a spouse. you’re in it together.
