I haven't done a "Currently" post in quite some time, so here's a little of what we've been up to lately:

*Listening:  I've been listening to music like crazy this winter-- partially because I work too slowly when I'm trying to watch tv or movies.  Things on the docket include: the newest Violents EP, Girls, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, and Hospitality.  Oh, and you can find me on Spotify if you feel like judging how much I (still) listen to Rilo Kiley.

*Watching:  Like I said, I haven't been watching a ton of television lately, but we just saw "Inherent Vice" by Paul Thomas Anderson (who I love, love, love) and I adored it.  I've talked to a lot of people who weren't that into it, but I thought it was great and I can't wait to see it again.

*Doing:  Besides playing shows in our band every weekend, I've been keeping busy with work (duh) and friend time.  I've had an abundance of really great coffee and drink dates recently.  Friends are a really great way for me to keep those winter (or non winter) blues away.  I've had a lot of laughs and a lot of tears over lattes or beers in the past several weeks, and I'm so thankful to have friends who care the way they do.

*Planning:  I mentioned in my resolutions post how ready I am for a vacation, and we've started looking into some potential destinations.  I can't wait to take a little time off with the family and just soak up what's around us.  More short-term plans include traveling for Dr. Dog and Jenny Lewis concerts (and yes, I did just see Jenny in Nashville a few months ago).  I just can't help myself.

*Growing:  When it's too cold to be doing any outdoor planting, I find myself going a little overboard with the amount of plants I bring home.  Actually, I just brought in three more plant friends yesterday.  We only have good light on one side of our living room, so one half is just completely overrun with green things, and the sad other side just gets a few baby succulents.  Oh, I also learned that if you over-water a big, standing cactus it will break right in half.  Learning as I go.  ;)

As always, thanks for reading this little blog, friends.  In the months where I feel less inspired and feel like I'm not on my A-game, I feel extra thankful that people come back to my corner of the interwebs.  Loyalty is something I cherish above all.  You guys are cool.  xo.

  1. Ooh I can't wait to see where your travels take you! I've never been to Nashville but I have been to Gatlinberg (the Dixie Stampede was amazing!) and the Smokies (in a beautiful cabin) and just WOW. Tennessee is a seriously overlooked state and I can't wait until I have another opportunity to go!

  2. Wish you by all my heart that it will be soon warm enough again for outdoor planting!

  3. Hi Katie, I love your blog post. You are so cute and down-to-earth. For the cacti, you can simply drop a couple ice cubes in once a week and you're good to go! If you have any plants that look sick or are dying, stick a rose quartz in its soil for fast healing. I swear by this! Hope this helps and best of luck!



  4. I will never judge anyone for listening to rilo kiley. More adventurous forever!

    p.s. I'm assuming now it's slightly intentional that between your hair, look and style you look JUST like Jenny

  5. I've been wanting to see Inherent Vice so bad!

  6. And thank YOU for posting even when you're feeling less than inspired. I can always count on visiting your site at the end of the day for a little escapism and pick-me-up! :-)))


  7. Thank you for the music suggestions! Always looking for new tunes - I agree, sometimes it's a little faster working with music than getting distracted by a TV show!

  8. I LOVE your blog!
    I love the "Snapshots", "Weekly wears", "Mother, daughter". You don't need to be THAT inspired to share cool things :)
    I just miss a little of sewing and customization. Your ideas are always the best!

    xo, Deborah
    See u soon.

  9. Katie, I have been a fan of your blog for YEARS! You wouldn't know it because I rarely leave a note (shame on me), but you have inspired me to start my very own blog (at last!!!). Now that that I have my own, I realize the importance of dropping a word or two, the support is what rocks!! I have always loved your style and how you are you're own trend setter! You are amazing! xo

  10. A new follower and I lover your blog!

  11. ahh i've been wanting to see inherant vice!

  12. Thanks for the update! Love coming to this corner of the interwebs. :-)

  13. I don't comment often, but I check in with you every week because you make me smile. <3

    Also, I saw Thao open for Xiu Xiu back in 2008 and she was a real beaut!
