clearly, i need to utilize my awesome camera lens travel mug more

It's been a busy couple of days for me, but I wanted to pop in tonight for two reasons:

1. I committed to the Blog Every Day In May challenge, & even though I knew I wouldn't be using all of Jenni's prompts, I knew that I wanted to get something down in this space for every day of the fifth month this year. 

2. I genuinely miss blogging with regularity. I miss my blogging routine, my rhythm, my interactions with other bloggers, etc. Having a rough blogging month has, once again, brought to my attention that I love being a part of this community. 

With that being said, since I've arrived back in Wilmington on Monday, I have begun school. This is something I'm really excited about, but it's taken up almost all of my energy the past two days. For the rest of this week, I will be meditating on a new weekly routine for myself, so that I can get back with the program & start doing all the lovely blogging things I'd like to do. Not only that, but there are some long overdue thank you notes that must be written & sent out, some reading I'd like to do more of [my book of choice right now is The Casual Vacancy, by J.K. Rowling, which I'm really enjoying], & a seemingly endless slew of other little tasks that simply must be achieved. 

Tomorrow evening, I'll be sharing an Around Here Lately post, with a bunch of images from my month-long trip to Shreveport. I'm also currently working on my June editorial calendar, so I'm excited about getting some great, quality posts up for the next month. And what I'm really looking forward to in the next couple of weeks, is getting back in touch with all of you.

Good for you with the school, girl! It will all come together. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with my expectations and what I think might be others' expectations for my blog. It's YOUR space, ladybug. Do with it what you will. :)
Congrats again! Can't wait to see what changes happen next!

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.

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.
