Today, July 22, 2013, Prince William and Princess Kate, of Cambridge, welcomed their little bundle of joy, baby boy Cambridge, into the world. The anticipation and excitement surrounding the royal birth was felt universally, with everyone on their toes for the past few weeks, waiting for Kate to deliver the next heir to the British throne. Personally, I checked CNN every morning, mid-afternoon, and evening, throughout this July, eagerly awaiting the news of the little prince’s arrival. I am DELIGHTED that today he finally made his way into the world and greeted his two loving parents. I honestly have true and sincere faith, in that Prince William and Princess Kate, will raise their son to understand and appreciate the world for what it truly is, and to also, most importantly, have the capacity to love unconditionally. I foresee William taking a page out of his dear departed mother, Diana’s, parenting book in this regard. So William and Kate I hope (but really trust and know) that you will lead by example, as you have done so well thus far, and teach your little prince that:
Tonight I am going to the Jason Aldean/Miranda Lambert concert at Fenway Park. I should be shaking with anticipation and excitement, but I am actually really nervous about it. I’m not quite sure why, but I can’t help it. I think it might have to do with my fear of concerts and crowds…I’m a little sensitive to loud noises hahaha. So, in order to combat my anxiety, I am trying to focus on all the positives and how this is a once in a lifetime experience. I just need to take a deep breath in, exhale, let it all go, and:
I honestly don’t know what I would have done, during this rough year, without my five best friends from home. We have been inseparable since high school, maybe even longer, and they are all the most amazing, and loyal, ladies I have ever met.
Thank you girls for being the five people I can just be completely stupid with at all times, and never feel judged. Love you all forever and always!
For as long as I can remember I have had an obsession with jewelry. In all sincerity this love affair goes back a long, long, long time. When I was in the first grade we had to do a “100 things” project, where we compiled 100 things and counted them out and displayed them in some sort of creative way. While most kids chose to showcase different candies, legos, or their sea-glass collections, I gathered all of my jewelry together and easily hit 100 pieces. As I grew older jewelry became an even more significant part of my life. In middle school I decided to start making my own necklaces and earrings and had a little business going. It was so rewarding and I really hope to pick that hobby up again in the near future. One aspect, in particular, that I adore about jewelry is that it doesn’t matter what size you are, or how icky you are feeling about yourself, a special necklace, ring, etc. can turn your mood upside down.
Here are some pieces that I would DIE to have (I really need to start saving)!:
Monogram Gold Plate Cuff from Monogram Lane
Margaret Elizabeth 3 Stone Drops – Rainbow Moonstone, Aqua Chalcedony, Blue Druzy
Nora Kogan Sarah Ring
Tortoise Shell Necklace
Chunky cuff and ring
Penny Preville Diamond- Trimmed Turquoise Pendant
These are just a few of my current obsessions…I could keep adding pieces for days 🙂
Ohhh just got this amaze bracelet from Ropes of Maine… I die for it:
I want to apologize for allowing the past few weeks of summer to get the best of me. I have slacked, majorly, in terms of keeping up with my blog. Since I last posted I have gotten readmitted back to school, started a new job, dog sat two of the most ginormous golden retrievers known to man, and also babysat like its going out of style…in all honesty I spread myself way too thin the last few weeks in June. As a result of my decisions, my health and recovery, unfortunately, took a backseat to everything else, and I found myself engaging in behaviors that redirected my energies and attention to outlets much less significant than my health. What I need to do now is take a step back, take a deep breath in and out, clear my mind, and figure out what I really want for myself. I need to reassess my priorities so that I can recover and have the most successful year possible when I go back to school. Whether this means saying no more when people ask me to dog sit, babysit, work more hours, etc. Or if its just by going to a yoga class instead of a night on the town with my friends, I need to be a better judge of what activities and actions are in my best interest. Right now is crunch time and I need to put myself first, stick up for myself, and most importantly learn to truly love and accept myself for who I am. Hopefully I can make significant strides in the next two months and my transition back to school will go smoothly. I have a lot of work to do, but I believe with the help of my loved ones, and my team, I can get there. Everyone please keep your fingers crossed for me. I need all the support I can get.
