[Finding Beauty in Imperfections]: One of my most biggest challenges in my life is focusing less on being "perfect" and more about "just being". It always has. I thrive on being a perfectionist yet it can drive me completely insane to the point where I am in tears. Within the past year, I have really tried to focus on "just being". That has meant less photo taking, less talking, and really just soaking in experiences around me. The clarity and sense of acceptance that I have gained has been so insightful. I am not sure where my world will take me within the next year, but I know that I will keep this thought near and dear to my big 'ol heart!
[Travel Colorfully]: Just yesterday, I got around to unpacking some things that I had stashed in a weekend bag to visit my pops! I never know what types of crazy things we will find ourselves into whenever we head to up to see him. One thing I do know, is to travel colorfully! It was my pops birthday so we had a grand 'ol time celebrating over Italian Rum Cake [yum!], chinese take out, and The Godfather [his favorite!]. It was a much needed and appreciated trip! On a completely different note, I really love these kicks that I purchased over the summer [They are actually on sale now if they tickle your fancy!]. Believe it or not, these are the only pair of athletic shoes that I own. Yikes!
[Lucy Goosey]: I can hardly believe it but our little love bug, Lucy, is seven years old! It makes me smile just thinking about how long we have had her! My honeybee and I rescued her when we were in college and she stole our hearts from the moment we spotted her! She is completely and utterly camera shy so you can imagine my excitement when I was able to snap this precious picture! Just a couple of months ago this bean escaped while we were at work and somehow managed to climb on our granite countertops, steal a gigantic cantaloupe, roll it down into our newly finished basement, smash it to pieces, and then eat it. Yes, you read that right. She ate it. Rind. And. All. I hope she enjoyed that delectable cantaloupe because she sure did pay for it. Lucy Goosey is now locked up while my Honeybee and I are at work. Boom!
[Art I Heart]: Small projects to finish our little love nest has been on my to-do lists these days. The next project up for grabs is the gallery way in our office. I recently ordered this print and could not love it any more! Swoon! Nothing like happy hues to inspire wonderful minds, chickadees!
[The Perfect Trench Cape]: Listen ladies, if there is one piece out there right now that you NEED, it is this piece! Isn't it fabulous? I cannot tell y'all how much I am smitten with this trench cape. I am in this rut where I am over winter sweaters, layer weather, and big bulky coats. My mind is ready for spring, button ups, and striped t-shirts WITHOUT having to layer. Going into spring, I am continuing to be mindful about purchasing more timeless pieces rather than trendy. I read once that, "Trendy is the last stage before tacky." Don't get me wrong, this little lady loves a few trendy pieces here and there but I'm all about smart shopping these days!
[Let the Journey Begin!]: I cannot contain my excitement any longer! I am so excited to share with you gal pals, that I am officially signed up to start my 200 hour yoga teacher training! I squeal then jump up and down just thinking about it! Yoga has become such a big part of my life within the past two years and I am so scared to take the plunge but I feel that I am right where I need to be. Yes, the physical poses are my jam but there is so much more to it that I am looking forward to! I am so anxious to start my journey and grow as a person both on and off my mat. Send good vibes my way! Namaste, babes!
That's what has been happening in this wonderful world o'mine! What about you? Have you done anything wonderful lately?
