Lovin' My Life

Gratitude is the best Attitude!
Sometimes it's a bit difficult to recognize how blessed you are in the mist of trials. But right now in my life I am just truly grateful for where I am and who I have around me. Over the last year people who were close to me have faded away and others have filled those empty spaces.

Okay granted I did lose my job earlier this year but so what? This new found free time has afforded me the opportunity to go back to school (full-time). Lucky me! Now how I'm going to pay my bills is irrelevant... Right? LOL

Basically I just wanted to publicly announce that life is worth living. Things won't always go as planned but make the most of it. One door closed another one opens... Go hard or Go home!

'til the next time...

Naked Feet

So today my feet felt extremely naked. Mainly because I couldn't find that "perfect" shoe to wear to lunch. Now I think I should mention first that I have a bit* of a shopping addiction. After sitting through an entire lunch admiring my guy friend for always looking so dapper, I felt inadequate. Yes, again I will admit I have a problem. We finished lunch and I headed over to my absolute favorite store Nordstrom. It didn't take long for me to stumble across this one.
Finally a shoe that touches my soul.

But unfortunately everything isn't all paradise in Shoeland. I got the shoe home... Thought about it and now I feel unsure. That is not an emotion I usually have AFTER the purchase. I'm compelled to keep them because they're different. When I was making the purchase I had white Theory shorts (w/ dark blue belt & brown buckle) and a Theory linen (or silk) button down shirt in either pink or yellow. Or I could go a different route and wear a white cotton shirt dress. Maybe a neutral beige or brown. I don't know!!! And since I don't know, I'm not feeling so good about this purchase. Ughh... When did shopping become so difficult.

SN: While searching for a link on Nordstrom's site for these shoes I came across the designers collection. HOTT! I'm definitely keeping these shoes. (Have I expressed how random and crazy my logic is?)

I just needed to release the fiasco into the world. I'll be wearing them this weekend and will update with pics.

'til the next time
