dressed up like a lady: NERVES.

Oct 6, 2011


Here's something I haven't asked in way too long: how are you guys?

I'm sorry that I haven't been as interactive as I'd like lately. There's a lot going on over here -- mostly potentially big, potentially good stuff! But you know how life is: when there's a lot going on, whether it's good or bad, it takes up a lot of your energy. Just look at MC!

I promise to share more soon. I might even post some wedding and decorating inspiration pictures, if you guys are interested!

To be perfectly honest, I kind of like being busy. I'm a hyperactive person! I don't like doing nothing and I definitely don't like procrastinating. Plus, every new occurrence in life is a step ahead -- even though it doesn't always feel that way. There's only one direction on your own path, and that's forward. If you don't see every new hurdle as another crucial step toward fulfilling your destiny, you'll never enjoy the ride. Besides, the hero of every great story ALWAYS has to jump through hoops, endure setbacks, overcome obstacles, and take on ever more daunting challenges. Otherwise it wouldn't be a story! 

At least that's my perspective. :)


  1. I'd love to see your wedding inspirations :)
    Those blue suede boots are fantastic!

    I try to think the way you do - that everything is a step forward, even if it sometimes looks otherwise, but I've just crashed my car and it's hard to be optimistic :(

  2. Thank you for your kind words :) The car is quite destroyed. Fortunately passengers and I weren't hurt. That just isn't my time of the year, but I keep my fingers crossed for better times to come ;)

  3. I know exactly what you mean about being busy!! Goodluck with everything. Wedding planning can be fun & stressful but try to enjoy it:)

  4. SUCH awesome photos - you guys look great. Your outfit is so fun.

    Also, I am the same way, I love keeping busy and having things to do. Otherwise I just end up feeling bored.

  5. You never cease to amaze me. You are beautiful and so incredibly smart, at least from what I can gather here. I completely agree that hurdles should be viewed in a good way. Getting through things means you're moving along and I would much rather move than stay stagnant like so many people choose to do.
    I just moved out of a really terrible house in an even worse neighborhood and even though the process had some stress, more than anything it has me excited about life again. I started volunteering at a local non profit and thanks to fall layers I'm finally having fun with my clothes again. Life is so good! I can't wait to hear what you've been working on!

  6. New things are new adventures! I love your attitude and can't wait to hear more. Love your jacket too. ;)


Leave a comment. It's good for our relationship.
