A Little Wordy Recap for September

So September has come and gone and that is wonderful/sad. I love September because it is so transitional and has a fresh appeal. Such a good, love filled month so without further ado, away we go...........


I so got to cover Mall at Millenia Fashion Week and it.was.super.fun. Watch here! It was challenging to capture shots in a packed crowd of people and exhilarating at the same time. If I could do this all day, err day, you betcha I would!




A mid month bach party with a theme of black ensembles and pink accessories caused me to commit myself to a group since I may just have a problem. Again, these are just some of my jeweled goodies that have some sort of pink in them. Shameful? Eh, maybe.


Then to coincide, while disassembling my outfit from the day one night, I looked down to actually catch myself saying "too much"? Obvi it was lack of sleep and I realized I is who I is:




I reached another yearly milestone of age and celebrated many times at many places with many folks. To feel so blessed? The thoughts, well wishes, love, and absolutely fabulous people I spent time with keep me in awe of my good fortunes:


Our youngest nephew Connor, aka Nonner as he calls himself (I die), hosted a birthday brunch at the Oviedo Townhouse and we chowed on some delish morsels of southern goodness to kick off the day before the actual day


Uh-oh, gifted new accessories? I definitely have a problem/blessing...





Beautiful cards that are absolutely so fabulous! These pups have been recrafted into decor for my work space, thankyouverymuch.

Speaking of my desk, some of dearest work lovies dolled my desk right on up. Be still my heart...



My love Hunty makes my heart sing each day but boy does he put up a good birthday!





I feel empowered to take on the next 7 years of age. I say 7 because I always heard of 7 year increments for hair and skin trends, well the same goes for state of mind. People always ask you if you feel different or older, it's almost cliche, but this year ironically no one has asked me and I'd actually be ready to offer a response that says yes, I do feel different.

I know much more about lots of things: saving vs spending; taking care of your body and mind equally; when to listen to your instinct and when to throw caution to the wind; learn to take time for self but know when you hustle too; know when to give your all and don't stop til it's great-it's ok to push limits on all fronts; it's okay to be afraid, it's not okay to not face fear; dragons exist and while fairy tales are highly fictitious, there can be so much good that comes from the overall theme; and lastly, if nothing else, optimism gets the job done.

So there we have it. If you made it this far, you deserve a cookie and possibly a beer. Either one, happy living til we meet again!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
