Soft Like Snow














If I had any kind of resolution in the new year, it was to be a softer person. More empathetic, kinder, and happier in general. I was going to write a whole post on it, but Elizabeth Rose from Waltz & Willow beat me to it (you can read that here), and did a much better job than I ever could.

Softness aside, I'm trying to figure out where to go from here. I think I like this new posting schedule. It was meant to carve out a bit of time for something else, something new, but now I've got to figure out just what that something new is. I want to start taking more miscellaneous photos again. I want to try more recipes. I want to do a lot of things. Where to start?

I've changed the background color of this blog too many time this month. I can't settle on just one shade. It was baby blue at the end of last week, as a slight homage to the films I've watched lately. It's a lovely wine shade right now, because I love wine, because I think it feels sophisticated and romantic, but I don't know how long I'll like a dark background. I tried all white last week as well, but it was too empty. What do you think? What's your opinion on the Yachtsmaan background? I'd really like to know.

Of course, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I rounded mine off in pajamas, binge-watching House Hunters International with wine. It couldn't have been more stereotypical or lovely. The weather has been rainy, and there hasn't been much light (hence the photos), but it's been cozy. What did you do this weekend? Let me know that too!

  1. House Hunters is life, girl! I feel like a middle aged lady watching it but I don't even care. Also, I'm loving this photo set. You always have a really cohesive aesthetic! I'm definitely going to check out that article on being a softer person, it sounds interesting.

  2. Loving the background color! It's a nice contrast to all the other blogs with black/white (not guilty at aaaalll). So it's a lovely hue and in combination with the bright photos, it's a cozy Winter feeling here - which I love! And yes to honoring wine with this shade haha, love it!

    Have a lovely week! Xx

    1. Ha! Nothing against white backgrounds, but I didn't feel like it really fit this space. I'm glad you like the current shade Mia!

  5. OMG thank you for the kind words and the sharing spirit you have showed today. I was not expecting that at all! In regards to your background, I tend to prefer softer, paler colors for themes. It's less harsh on the eyes. That said, I do like the coziness of the red today and I don't think it's a problem at all. I am glad to see a break from the standard black and white themes.

    1. Of course Elizabeth, it was a wonderful post! I just had to share it. I agree with you. I usually prefer softer shades, but I'm really draw to the current color. I still haven't made a definite decision lol.

  7. Loving the burgundy background to your blog right now Amber, at LEAST give it a week haha ;) I love your shot of footprints in the snow; it's freezing cold in my area but still no snow (well, besides a light dusting a few days ago). Fingers crossed for more! Keep warm :)
