rinserepeatblog jetting off to visit my family tomorrow! packing + to-do listing. butters is wondering where snuggle time fits in. :) 2w
  •   violagirl285 Soo cute!! What a face! How do butters and lucky get on? 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @violagirl285 Lucky has been slowly accepting him. :) At first it was ugly, and I really worried it wouldn't work. But now she understands that she has safe spaces (like the whole 2nd floor, where Butters isn't allowed and lots of vertical space) to get away, if needed! She still doesn't really like him, but we've come a long way. He doesn't chase or bark at her, and she's never even swiped him. So I am calling it a win! ;) 2w
  •   aubryeliz Swing by SLC will you?! 2w
  •   violagirl285 Oh kitties! Hopefully with time they'll be buds! 2w

rinserepeatblog if i keep buying mini-pumpkins, eventually the 90 degree temps will disappear, right? ;) #fakingfall 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @aubryeliz Dealio! You guys know how to do fall!! 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @misschrisycharms Me too! The white ones are my fave. :) 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @daniellesque Haha! I am about to be knee deep in pumpkins and it's still a zillion degrees. 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @kokalphotography It sounds SO tempting. Fall in Wisconsin is truly the best! Just need to convince my husband and my best friend + her fam to move with! :) 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @ca_comes Indeed! :) Bring on the pumpkins and crunchy leaves!! 2w
  •   kokalphotography @rinserepeatblog where are you living? I'm going to be shooting a wedding in San Diego the end if February and would love to meet you of you're close! 2w
  •   nikkicox81 I was just thinking about you this morning. I read your other post and I'm so glad you are feeling better and that is such a sweet puppy. Sometimes I guess we have to do what we have to do even if it's not what we want to do. Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful posts. 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @kokalphotography Oh bummer!We're way up in the San Fran area. Lucky you to get a trip to sunny San Diego during the winter, though! :) Make sure to visit Coronado Island + Hotel Del while you're in San Diego...we honeymooned there and it was gorgeous! :) 2w

rinserepeatblog one month ago we adopted a shelter dog named butters. we weren't looking for a dog...but butters plopped in my lap and wouldn't leave my side. :) without getting too lengthy, i'll confess that depression took over my world this summer. even with therapy, life felt grey and hopeless...hence the radio silence here. a few days before butters came into my life, i began taking medication for my depression and anxiety...a huge step, as i've always been too scared to consider that option. between therapy, meds and butters...the color and joy in life is starting to come back. so...hi. sorry for the long-winded post, but let's find some color again. :) 3w
  •   rinserepeatblog @beckyavery2 Buttah Beanz. :) 3w
  •   kellypelehach To banishing the grey! Glad you're feeling better!! 3w
  •   absolutelynikki So happy to see you posting again! I love your perspective, the way you see and share the world, and really hope things feel better for you moving forward! 2w
  •   kelleydigioia Just saw this and wanted to tell you I've been there, and still end up in that gray place occasionally, without warning. It can be so hard to pull yourself up when you're down, and so hard to let people in about it without fear of judgment or abandonment. Sending you a hug and wishing you the best always. One day at a time and deep breaths 2w
  •   kokalphotography Welcome back beautiful girl! You were the first "random" blog I started to follow and I'm happy to see you back. You are loved. from random strangers around the world. 2w
  •   schneewittli So glad to read this. Seems like Butters came at the right time! Just so you know, so many people care about you 2w
  •   vanessagrantevents So glad to hear you're feeling better. I've too been struggling with depression for a few years now and know the struggles. So happy to see you in here again! Your posts always bring me joy! 1w
  •   bizcochito73 Hugs. Glad you're feeling better and having a brighter outlook to everyday. Depression is a mean monster that creeps when you least expect it. Hang in there. I've been battling it for the last couple years and medication has helped with my anxiety. 1w

rinserepeatblog macarons are overhyped...i know...but i love them anyway. stopped to buy a few for my visiting sister! :) 4mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @artbybeata Oh no! All that work for nothing! I've thought about making them...but knew it would end in disaster. (Or I'd eat them all in one day.) 4mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @whynikella I never realized they were gluten free! That's wonderful! And thanks. :) It's nice to be back, and to keep up with your beautiful photos, too! 4mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @cyndi_lou Thanks, Cyndi! :) Just a little tweaking in Afterlight...my real life is significantly less dreamy. ;) 4mon
  •   artbybeata @rinserepeatblog were we not supposed to eat it all in one day??? Lol (there was not as many though, and all was flat and broken ) 4mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @artbybeata Haha! Well, I hear they're a lot of work...so I suppose one deserves to eat all of them afterwards, right? ;) 4mon
  •   cyndi_lou Dreamy or not in real life, I still miss you & your snapshots of life on here. Also really miss your blog but understand it's hard to always find time or the words. That's why I've been absent so long. Hope all is well and you're adjusting well to your new area. 4mon

  •   melissdelong @rinserepeatblog A break is always nice, but I'm selfishly glad to see you back!! More floral photos, please :) 4mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @withwildlove Hi! :) I know...so many moons between posts! I deleted all my social media apps to make space on my full phone one day...and then just didn't redownload. Ha. The urge to be on social media disappeared after a while. But I missed having little snaps in an easily accessible place, and missed catching up on everyone else's lives! 4mon
  •   kailz56 Excited to see your beautiful floral arrangements too! :) 4mon
  •   thoshesfierce Oh my goodness that sounds so beautiful! I told my roommate the other day I want a house with ivy growing up the side, but roses on an archway sounds even better 4mon
  •   eventuallyvintage I dream of living in Los Gatos... 4mon
  •   laurenjean_rice @rinserepeatblog if you're in los gatos again, I would love to pick your brain over lunch! :P 4mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @laurenjean_rice I would absolutely LOVE that. We're living in north San Jose, so getting to Los Gatos anytime would be easy-peasy! :) Let's plan a lunch date! Is it best to email you? 4mon
  •   laurenjean_rice @rinserepeatblog hooray! that would be amazing! my e-mail is laurenjean.rice@gmail.com. :) 4mon
