living a visual life

I like to think i lead a pretty visual life…’s the way i walk through life seeing things.

I have visions…and i want to make them happen.

I love life…i really do.

I’m not afraid to talk about life either.

Life is for living…..and i like to think i am living it to the fullest.

I’m not crafty….never have been….probably never will be.

I can’t sew a button to save my life.

{thank goodness Lola got a sewing machine for Christmas}

I burn my fingers when i use a glue gun.

My kids don’t own play dough.

{they will live……..i promise}

We don’t sit and have craft days.

{that’s what art class is for at school}

Life is not always rose colored….and some days are downright horrid.

{i am not the most patient mom in town}

It’s the other days that are full of color…and ready to embraced.

I love music. I love style. I love photography.

{i don’t have to be behind a lens to create the look i want}

Therefore….my children love music…love style…love living.

{even if it’s Justin Bieber blaring thru Pandora}

I love being visually stimulated.

I love envisioning things…situations…and making it happen.

{like my vision of having my family photographed at the library…more to come soon..pinky promise}

That is why…when The Sartorialist posted this video on his blog the other day..

i went nuts….because as you see…i am smitten with living a visual life.

{i also love style….but i think you already knew that}

He leads a visual life also…and i think you will come away from watching it feeling inspired.

{he’s also pretty damn cute ….}


  1. What?!?!
    YOu can’t let us wait for those photos!!!!

  2. That is pretty cool. and you are right, he is pretty darn cute.

  3. omg…I can’t wait to see your library photos.
    You rock. Really.

  4. What a great video. I am also dying to see your photos.

    That was a great video, thank you for sharing it with us. I really do believe I need to step up the program and live visually also.
    I’m so Bah Humbug these days. Really, I can NOT wait to see your photos as I am sure they are amazing.
    I would never have thought to do photos in a library. Never ever, but that is why you are who you are.

  6. I am not that mom either and I am okay with that. You are wonderful just the way you are:) I can’t wait to see the pictures. I am off to watch the video.

  7. I think you are pretty visual.
    Way to tock a photoshoot at the library. Now show us some pics….

  8. Thank you for posting that video. It was fabulous!

  9. yeah you are unique and you got it goin’ on mrs b!!..
    ha ha i sound old…
    well …we are all drawn to your visual life and all of the yumminess you bring to ours!!
    i am anticipating those library photos alot!!
    have a fab week!

  10. That was some good stuff now on to the photos !

  11. i can’t wait to see your photos xoxoxo

  12. I Love the video. This year I’m doing a picture a day. So far they have been of “things.” I Love the people aspect, but to get strangers to allow you to take their picture can be difficult. What Beautiful Visualization he has!

  13. Sounds like a great way to live, simple, loving…..that’s me! Happy New Year.

  14. I can hot glue and craft, but I don’t have style like yours. Different strokes for different fokes…

    For the funny, I first read “I love being visually stimulated.” and didn’t see “visually” in there.

  15. Can’t wait to see your photos! I’m happy to hear my house isn’t the only one listening to JB blaring through Pandora waaay more than he should be!

  16. Glad to know I am not the only mom who thinks arts and crafts are for school. I just can’t do it. Thanks for the link.

  17. and I simply adore the visual life you lead and share with us ~

    Did I mention my dream job is to be a librarian?

  18. Kasey, Thanks for sharing this. I too am extremely visual. I think that’s part of the reason I’m so addicted to blog and blogland. So much input!!!

    That’s one of the reasons I first fell in love with your blog. I sensed a kind of visual kindred spirit in you. (do you remember me leaving you like 30 comments on that one post the first time I visited?)

    Anyhoo, sorry I missed you call. I really want to chat…so much to tell you.


  19. wow, great pictures and thanks for sharing the sartorialist!

  20. Hello – I like that fact that you come clean about what sort of mother you are and I am so with you about crafting. That IS what art class if for at school! My kitchen table is more likely to host food and wine and cups of tea than craft days. Hmmm.
    I too loved the Sartorialist film – he is just the thing that got me blogging and I love that so many parts of the blogging community are re-posting it. He has touched so many people. Very cool. And very visual. Lou x

  21. Love the video, thanks for posting it x

  22. Very cool. Thanks for sharing that video.

  23. yesterday I told Kevin he had to watch the Sartorialist film because it meant so much to me…
    and also perhaps so he’d want to dress more like Scott.
    it also made me want to hop on a plane and go to New York.
    you my friend are the master at making it happen though in your own life…you can do it like no other:)

  24. what, i thought you could sew a button? you are wonderfully creative. cool photo. miss you all over there.

  25. Fabulous… thanks for sharing!

    (can’t wait to see your family shoot)

  26. Wow! thank you so much for sharing this video with us. I am simply amazed at this guy’s talent and how he can capture emotion in his photos. They aren’t just random pictures of people on the street. I am a visual person and I live a visual life. I now know that its okay for me to be like that and that I’m normal! I really look forward to seeing your library photoshoot. That was a beautiful idea and I can’t wait to see how your vision came to life. You are an inspiration girl!

  27. Loved the video. I am also super visual. For me, though, there is some frustration because I feel like I need to be doing something with it, but I’m not sure what it is.

    I can’t wait to see your libray photos ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Hello Kasey, thank you so much for your nice words on my blog! Iยดm so glad about it!
    Your blog is beautiful and your photos are so gorgeous!

  29. Kasey –
    I just read your posts about France… did you ever finish posting past day 5?
    PLEASE where can I find the “rest of the story”.


  30. your posts are always so inspirational. thank you for making me think deeper ๐Ÿ™‚

    happy Monday!

  31. I’m not sure I could say I lead a visual life…but I know I’m often driven visually and that I’m a visual learner:) Great video {wish I could approach people like that just to take their picture}. And I cannot wait to see the “library photos”; what a fantastic idea, Kasey!

  32. great video! i lead a visual life for sure , borderline obsession. a photo session in the library, that sounds sensational. can’t wait to see them… and i must confess, u gave me inspiration to take a few pics in the library for the coffee table book i’m working on, so thank you… ! i hope i don’t get in trouble. or actually, i hope i do! xx

  33. I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos…they are beautiful! And living a visual life is quite beautiful as you have found a great way to express yourself with sharing yours

  34. Hi Kasey,
    Thanks for this link, I didn’t know this, indeed, cute man, loved the video, very interesting how he sees things.
    Night! Maureen
    (btw, so funny to see that I’m not the only impatient mom here in Blogland, thanks for that!)

  35. Funny you would mention this, I saw it the other day and he is fascinating. His eye is always bang on. He’s on my favourites and he inspires me, as do you.

  36. haard to imagine NOT living a visual life.
    Thanks for this. What a treat. I nearly cried…is that odd?
    I am odd.
    But oddly visual ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. Love your posts and cant wait to see the library photos!;) Rachel

    Thanks for posting the video. I never knew what he looked like and pictured this avantgarde guy. It’s oddly comforting to me that he is so normal. LOL Not sure what that reveals about me. I love his photos.

  39. Thank you so much for sharing that video, I really enjoyed it. Lately I’ve been wondering about what people who aren’t visually stimulated even think about. Everywhere I go I see little details in things that make me smile and wonder and dream. Color, pattern, lighting, contrast, repetition, architecture, fashion, on and on. And then there’s the internet…I could sit here for days and look at blogs.

    A lot of my friends don’t understand how anyone can spend more than 20 minutes online. Sometimes it makes me feel lazy when they ask “what do you even DO on there?”. But after reading this & watching the video, I know that it doesn’t stem from laziness. Not entirely, at least. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  40. thanks for linking to this video – it’s beautiful!

  41. i watched the whole video. very sweet! i promise you, if mr. “sartor” ever ran into you on the street in one of your anthro get ups, he would snap you indeed! ๐Ÿ™‚ lovely stuff!
    i agree with erin, above. i feel the same way. just using my eyes, i feel like i go on adventures every day.

  42. Kasey,

    I think we might be soul sisters. I look at life and my surroundings just like you! Thank you for sharing the video, i can’t wait to look at his sight, and you are right, damn cute!!!!

  43. When I watched this video I flipped and made a blog post about it too! I spent that day taking and editing photos of a nearby state park/farm and it was glorious. Love that you posted about it too!

  44. I added “The Sartorialist” (sp?) to my blog list. Thank you for posting that! He has wonderful photography. I used to live in NYC so it was wonderful to remember my college days and all of the fashion attempts on the NYC streets…
