Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." - Gloria Steinem

I have been in a funk lately. I think it's a combo of me getting sick right in the smack dab middle of graduating(and still bouncing back in some ways) and also the void I feel from being done with something I so intently focused my life on for the last year.

I am so happy to be done, yes, but I knew I would feel a loss from the experience being complete. I am having a hard time honestly. New projects are under way but I'm not as dedicated as I'd like to be yet. I'm trying to take advantage of having more free time and relax but it is harder than I realized it would be. I'm at a turning point, waiting to get off this page and on to the next...

How does one truly refocus and re-purpose their direction when one chapter closes? We all hear the messages to feel inspired; we're told to be aware of doors closing and opening constantly and one of my favorite movies offers a really great quote that I'm constantly referring to:
Beginnings are usually scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most." -Hope Floats

How true this rings right now. It's just the initial hurdle of transition that I'm facing. I am constantly dreaming and scheming a next great adventure. I feel so ready to launch tons but also I feel overwhelmed on where to start at times. My ambition is at a high level but fatigue is also present. It's tricky right now being ready to jump but stumbling to make the move.

I will get moving, but I just wanted to put this our there for anyone who may need to be reminded that dreaming is in fact a form of planning. And breaks are needed for recharging. We all get where we're going and the pace at which we do it is not always a race. As my forever icon Carrie Bradshaw once stated, it's time to "breathe and reboot."


Til we meet again,

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

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…
