Day 28: My Sunday

I beat my previous personal best. 
I even added 50 burpees for fun and still came in 4 minutes faster than last time. 

I witnessed a wannabe tornado funnel.

I had my delicious chai tea at our weekly date to India.

I made a promo cake for my other blog

Day 25: My life is...

It was really hard to sit down and think of one word 
that accurately portrays how I feel about my life these days. 
It was even harder to figure out how to capture
that thought in a photo.

So, I went "abstract" by using this image.

I thought for hours about what defines my life, 
and all I could think of was glitter and butterflies...
sort of...

I guess I have a hard time defining what my life is like because it's 
ever changing and it means something
different based on my current mood. I'm super moody these days.

One thing that caught my attention with this poster
is the quote at the very bottom.

Yes, my life is pretty cool but in the grand 
scheme of things, it's not a beautiful or unique snowflake 
and I absolutely love that.

I love that no matter how much I love my life this very second
or how much I can't stand it's ridiculousness when
things get out of control, 
it's not beautiful or unique. 

The image also deeply represents a lot of the chatter that 
goes on in my head all day, every day.
It's not necessarily the same subject matter, but the fact that there are tons
of words and thoughts in Tyler's head
accurately portrays how I feel every single day in a very literal manner.

Day 20: On my mind

Seattle <3 p="">

Day 19: Button

I'm a pretty conservative dresser. 
I think...
I like really classic looks that can transition from season to season.
I'm not into fads or anything
so when I'm looking for a statement piece 
such as the classic JEAN JACKET
little accents like this button really draw me to it.

Day- 16 My favorite color

 I love love love the color yellow in practically any shade. I think it has something to do with the way I love the sun and how I'm a fire sign. (Fire= hot = sun) =) Plus, the fact that I love diamonds (and really, what girl doesn't??? ) So, this is the perfect image to represent my favorite color!

Day 15- Da sola.

I don't consider myself to be overly emotional or excessively moody but lately I've had a serious run in with the most mopey mood ever. Spring has finally sprung and the weather usually puts me in the right mind set but all this sunshine seems to have had a reverse effect on me. 

My friends here in Italy are amazing. Over the weekend everyone came over to hang out for a while. We cooked up good foods, drank good drinks, and just enjoyed each others' company in the glorious sunshine. Yet, all throughout the day I found myself yearning for a place half way across the world. A place I've never been and I am constantly thinking about. Can I really be homesick for a place I've never called home? 

Normally, when I'm not taking classes or if I don't have a full schedule of cake orders I like to get in my car and just drive somewhere. Today, I found myself all alone on a beach and I just sat there and listened to the waves. There is something magical about the ocean breeze in my hair and the gentle kiss of the sun on my skin. My heart was full of joy at that very moment but the thought that the moment will eventually come to and end in just a short while brought on an episode of the saddest tears I've ever shed. 

A good cry fest is so rejuvenating and for the first time in weeks, I felt at peace. Sucks that the feeling only lasted during my drive home...
