It’s been busy, that is the summary of this post! Note to self: don’t schedule 3 trips back to back next year.
I’ve been having a blast over the last month but phew I need to get off the roller coaster for a minute.
Luckily in the month of July, I get to “take it easy” for 2 weeks or so before it picks up again with another not 1, not 2, not 3 but FOUR trips before the end of September.
Sometimes I question why I pack so much in all the time. The wisest of people would advise you to “be present” and to “enjoy the present moment”. I agree this is likely the healthiest option but I also live by the philosophy to enjoy every hour of the day, savor in the trips, the moments, the laughter.
Growing up my family tended to relax and always live in the moment. This translated into no vacations, outings or other fun activities. It wasn’t so bad when we lived in South America, it became worse when we moved to New York City. Slowly there were no far away trips, no exciting visits anywhere, just a lot of being home.
So am I making up for those years? Am I a fervent believer in the “you only live once” motto?
I am not completely sure what it is but what I do know is this summer thus far has been so fun, it may just be my favorite summer ever (or close second to last year’s….the summer of my wedding).
More to come..my blog now has its own domain and soon a new template!
Soon I will post many other photos, updates, articles and everything I’m constantly thinking about pouring out on this blog.
A little taste of my summer: My friend Ari and me hanging out at a summer concert by the lake….
Excited to share I’m really pulling it altogether on the blog. I told myself if I were to invest on this blog, I had to prove to myself I’d invest time on it.
I have invested time on it therefore my reward is to update the branding and look for the blog and (gasp) actually buy a domain. More updates to come soon which will focus more on wedding topics, travel and much more!
In the meantime, my next adventure calls my name. A girls trip to NYC!
Happy 90th birthday dear +Marilyn Monroe. It feels cliched sometimes to like her as much as I do but her vulnerability was untouchable.
I think she was honestly a good person, hypersensitive and vulnerable in a threatening society which is why so many people can identify with her.
She was also stunning, drop dead glamorous and brave. Whenever I see her, I remind myself of the important of smiling through life and always strive to just have a great time. Life is a party after all.
She really taught me the importance of “fake it till you make it“.
