the sunday currently, advance edition. [volume 15].

by the time you are reading this, my friend laura will know that i have flown in to shreveport to surprise her, & she will have some brand new exciting news! and since justin & i will have been traveling on saturday & loading up a moving truck with the rest of our in-shreveport possessions & shoving off for wilmington, that is why this the sunday currently post is an advance edition.
reading the hobbit, especially since we have a 15-hour [plus!] road trip in a moving truck ahead of us. i'll be critiquing this book on january 9th, when i revive my critique cache feature here on siddathornton. if you've read the book, please come link up with a review post!
writing in my brand new maybooks planner! justin surprised me with a special christmas eve delivery - the exact one i had on my wish list. this is my first maybooks experience, & i have to say, i'm impressed & already want more. i'll be sharing what it looks like soon [i'm sure, via instagram].
listening to road trip tunes as justin & i drive east. i'm sure we're already ready to be pulling into our apartment complex, but we're not scheduled to arrive until around noon on monday. i have to say, though, that i'm excited about stopping to eat at cracker barrel!
thinking that christmas was so much fun. i loved having my family here in wilmington to show them around. i missed them so much when i woke up on friday & they had already left for shreveport.
smelling fresh air on the open road.
wishing for safe travels.
hoping we have a ton of fun out with our friends on saturday night - we can't wait to see everyone!
wearing what i'm sure is frumpy road trip attire. i always pretend i'm going to wear something cute on road trips, but at the end of the day, comfort is key.
loving our brand new nikon d3000! thank you, mom & dad! justin took the lovely photo you see above with the new camera. we're already in love, & i can't wait to use it to take some pretty pictures for my blog.
wanting to get home quickly & safely & to have all our furniture unpacked & arranged.
needing water, i bet. and to get caught up on all my favorite blogs. i've taken a lot of blog-time off during the holiday season. it's been refreshing, & as always when i don't blog consistently, i've realized just how much i love it. 
feeling tired, i bet.

i hope you all have had a fun, relaxing, & refreshing holiday season. here's to 2013!

Funny. I kept looking up at that picture of your family and thinking... great camera, I bet. Then, I read that it's your new toy! Yay! Do you love it? I got a new lens for my Canon from Santa (aka the hubs) and it's been so much fun. Have a great New Years Eve! I agree on the blogging front. It's been a funky week. Time to get back into a routine, I suppose.... Safe travels!
my friend gave me a wedding journal from Maybooks - I love it! haven't started using it yet because it's so pretty and I'm afraid I'll mess it up. clearly I have a problem... haha

Have safe travels! We're finishing up our move this week too. Here's to getting settled... and to new routines. Happy New Year :)

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.
wearing pajamas, just like I have …

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
