I was going to start with saying it’s been a long week, but then I realized it’s only Wednesday. The truth is, it’s been a long three months. I can’t believe it’s ONLY been three months since I began blogging as it feels like I’ve been doing this forever and got a really good routine going on right now. What I do realize is though that “this blogging thing” of mine is so much more than I had anticipated, in good and bad. The good part is I get to experience places, things and people I never would have if I hadn’t chosen this path. The bad part is that it’s really taking ALL my free time. But with that said, free time needs some defining. If I do something I enjoy and really love that is a combination of what began as a hobby and now is work, isn’t it still somewhat time I spend fulfilling myself and thus “free time”? Free time as in having time to actually sit down, breathe and read a good book I will get to. I’ll just have to downsize my schedule a bit and that’s exactly what I’m doing this upcoming weekend. I’ve cleared my entire schedule in order to do a whole lot of nothing.
Speaking of not being able to adult anymore I’m in love (I don’t use these words that much when I talk about clothes, so trust me on this one) with this sweater from a local brand called Manners Apparel. They’ve done lotsa stuff, but this sweater and other famous TV couples even made their way into my favorite store in the world, that is Colette on Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. I was so proud when I saw it hanging there! And speaking of Brenda and Dylan, that brings back SO many childhood memories of how I used to look at America pre-living there compared to post-living in the US. I’ll save that for a later blog post, but not all of America was like 90210… With that said, make sure you get some free time fit into your schedules so you don’t burn yourselves out!
