savannah snapshot: flags + flowers.

Happy Monday, folks! I hope you got more sleep than I did. Justin & I thought it would be an excellent idea to stay up until past three o'clock in the morning, watching Something Borrowed & The Hunger Games. You know, we just weren't ready to let go of the weekend just yet, so we pretended it was still going on. ... And this morning, I'm paying for it a bit. Oh well, I'm about to sip some green tea, sit through my two classes, have a bit of a workout, then a LARGE NAP. After all, the summer semester is coming to a close in two days.

This morning I am sharing some more photos from our 4th of July trip to Savannah, these being of the flag-and-flower variety. I hope you'll enjoy the vivid blooms & patriotic pizazz just as much as we did. 

See? Savannah is packed with color, & a cozy kind of patriotism that makes you crave apple pie. [No? Is that just me?] Either way, it's safe to say that America's Birthday was the best time of year to trek southwards to this little peach of a city. 

Here's to a swiftly-moving Monday for all!

You have once again forced me to start daydreaming about the South and how much I want to explore all of it! Oh, darn, best to just go along with it, right? :) I love those sidewalks and the trees and flowers that line them. The colors! It's all so pretty.

Oh you're crazy, I love it! I need to watch the Hunger Games, I read the books and liked them, so I'm hoping the movie doesn't disappoint! Stunning photos once again! I love brick sidewalks, they have so much character! Enjoy your nap:)

We went to Savannah on Saturday to celebrate our anniversary [and to eat at Ruths Chris!]. I love Savannah.

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.
