Cheers to 2017

Wasn’t I just writing up my ‘Cheers to 2016‘ post?! Someone, please alert Father Time for he must’ve pressed fast forward or something. This time last year I was still temping around NYC, getting ready for a European adventure and learning to love, long-distance.

A Rainy Sunday

It’s a rainy Sunday here in NY, I’m single-digit-days away from turning the big 2-5 and all I can think about is how the one person I want to spend it with the most is nearly 7,000 miles away, on the other side of the planet.

Two Weeks Till 25!

Ahhh! Where have my early 20s gone?! Every September post-college, I feel soooo weird not getting ready for a new school year.

  • The fact that it’s now (kind of) socially acceptable to drink hot chocolate
  • Pumpkin everything (call me basic, whatever)
  • The colorful leaves/hearing them crunch beneath my feet
  • Apple picking!
  • My birthday! (Sept. 27 — it’s the big 2-5 this year, holy bananas)

I used to love September for the start of a new school year, but alas those days are over – womp womp.

My upset face.

The start of this September has been a bit rough. I spent a blissful 20 days having my bf home from his base but a short while ago he was off, back to the other side of the world. Cue all the tears.

“My heart is your home, wherever in the world you are – you will always have a place to stay.” – omg I’m pulling out the cheesy quotes, somebody stop meeeee

But — happier things are on the horizon and I could use a good distraction. I’m off to SAVANNAH!! I’m so excited to explore the town during this long weekend and I can’t wait to show y’all pictures.

Spread kindness and cheer (always), xo

Enjoy the Sunshine

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.”

I’m just about to head out and enjoy the sunshine and clear blue skies on this beautiful Sunday. Life is good…in just four days my marine (whom I haven’t seen since JANUARY!!) will be home for three weeks and I’m sooooooo looking forward to seeing him!
