Good bye...

yep, I'm leaving this blog.  I really just don't have the time to focus on all the things I want to something has to give.  I will be keeping up a photography blog though (probably less frequent), so if you love me kindly find me over here at Kassie Nichole Photography

And even if you don't come, thanks for following me this past year or so, it's been fun!

xo, kassie

Top 5 Friday: Holiday Wishlist! :)

So, TWO present-giving holiday’s are coming up - Christmas and....MY BIRTHDAY! Okay, so technically my birthday isn’t a holiday...well not a nationally recognized one anyway. :P

So, here are my Top 5 Wants for this lovely gift-giving...and receiving season. :)

I have a secret - this has already been ordered!  Brian is giving it to me for my birthday!  It won't be here until Christmas, but that's okay!

This one & this one - for our bathroom!

I've been looking for one awhile now and I really love this one from Ruche!

like the bauble statement necklace shown here.  I also really love this giraffe one on etsy!

Last time we were in Des Moines, Brian bought me a shirt from this shop (love it!) and I saw this book.  I was already interested and then Meanz from Koi Story said it was good and so now I've decided I need it. :P

What's on your wishlist this year??

Birthday Time!

 Happy Birthday Dad!

It's my Dad's birthday I'm sure you've gathered.  He's pretty awesome...and was about my age in that picture. lol.  I really doubt he is aware of this blog, let alone reads it, but I love him so thought I'd share his birthday with the blog world.  :)

Found words...

Please take me into your arms
hold me until I struggle for release

don't release me.

I am yours forever.
I breathe in your love.
I drink in your lust.

take me as I am
take me as you please
I am desperate.

desperate for these miles to disappear
desperate to feel your lips on mine
desperate for your hands to roam my eager body

take me.

Kiss me hard
let our halves become one
and absorb me as I absorb you
don't leave me again lover
keep me forever.


I recently rediscovered my old DeviantArt account and I found this poem I wrote. Here's the thing, upon first reading it I thought ...I can't believe I wrote that. I was shocked at the ...intensity of it and, frankly, I think it's good, ha. I do know when I wrote it and who it was referencing. It makes me a bit sad, because at the time what I thought was passion, was really just intensity. I think that happens sometimes with love and desires. I wrestled with the idea of sharing this, because it does make me feel a little raw. It is a direct window into my mind and heart at that moment in my life. It makes me sorta feel like I just posted a nude photo of myself. HA! But, I'd like to tap into that sort of intense creativity again, because I feel like I've lost it. And on that note, I will share one more.


my mind relentlessly refuses my pleads.
focus. FOCUS! if only for a second.
I can't.
I give in.
my soul is wet with emotion.
I can't see       or breathe        or be
It's everything and it's nothing
at once.
my mind is paralyzed by a scream.
a scream from my own abused tongue.
oh god, i gasp for a new life.

what's next?


Hope you enjoyed my random Saturday post.

Have a good weekend. :)

This week we are going a bit more general, because sometimes I just want to share random things with you in top 5 list form.

1. Here’s what’s up folks! Yea...we started “going paleo” a couple weeks ago. We’re great about it at home, not so much when we go out. :P (i know this is a long graphic and makes my blog post just that much longer, but it's worth it!)

2. Me want.

3. Love the words. Love the girl. (...Lana Del Rey)

4. Yea, I need this one too. I <3 giraffes!

5. Oh dear. Like I needed another tattoo idea. This is fantastic!

Portrait of a Girl...

 A very lovely woman (not girl, ha), whom I call my best friend!  Did I use "whom" correctly there?  It felt right so I went with it, probably wrong though. Oh well! My bestie played model for me and the photos turned out fan-FREAKIN-tastic!  See for yourself. :)

Top 5 Fridays: 90s!!

Alright, today’s Top 5 Friday....

Top 5 90s Artists!!

I know, I know. It’s the day after Thanksgiving so I should do something with that, but I feel like all that has already been covered this week! So...

I’m going to try to span the whole decade with this, but I will probably fail as I’m thinking mid-late 90s. Keep in mind this is the Top 5 bands/musicians/singers, not songs. ‘Cuz my list would look much different if it were songs. For example, I think The Way by Fastball (and that whole album) was amazing, but they were kind of a one hit wonder, so yea. Maybe I should do that one week, top 5 one hit wonders! lol I won’t lie...I can’t remember if I listened to all of these in the 90s, could have been early 2000s, ha. And I know there are some embarrassing ones I DID listen too, but won’t be making this list (think Xtina and Ms. Spears).


1. Alanis Morissette

2. No Doubt

3. Goo Goo Dolls

4. Sheryl Crow

5. Red Hot Chili Peppers

A few I didn’t include but want to mention. Matchbox Twenty, because I feel that the hull of their work came in the next decade. Madonna, just because I personally put her in my “80s” category. Some others yet... Bush, Sublime, The Cranberries and Oasis. All of which I love, but didn’t listen to them as much in the 90s. :P

So...who are your Top 5 90s Artists? Leave me a comment OR Link up with your blog below! :)
