Well, that happened for me, earlier this week, & you can view a tiny piece of the outfit in that photo to the left, there. The scarf was a gift from my sister, & it's something I love every single time I wear it.
Beyond that, this past week has just been one in which I've felt incredibly happy. Ask Justin: this, coming from a girl who, around a week ago, could barely pry herself out of bed, nor quit sulking about the fact that she had still not found a job in her new city, was a big deal.
I don't know: I guess I've just felt like I'm finally on the right track; like I've been sent signs from God, that there's a reason for this struggle. And really, nothing can compare to that reassurance.
reading in far too sporadic a manner. Little Women, no doubt, feels abandoned.
writing via ink-&-paper avenues, as discussed here. If you are a writer, & you don't journal, I highly recommend it. Sometimes I gloss over the thoughts that are bouncing around in my head, when they really deserve to be written down.
listening to my gut. And to God. My career may be on the upswing here. I really think it may be a sign that I haven't found a job yet. The right thing just hasn't come along, & that has paved the way for me to explore other avenues.
thinking that Pawn Stars & Swamp People are two of my favorite shows... ever.
smelling my current favorite shower gel, Honey Sweetheart from Bath & Body Works. I haven't really tried the other Sweetheart scents yet, because I knew which one I'd like best. I may take a trip over to B&BWorks soon to check the others out, though.
wishing it was easier to become a morning person. I've been trying, y'all, & I'm doing better. BUT, it's time to really get in gear. This week's wakeup time? 7 a.m.
hoping for a lovely little trip to Pinehurst this coming up weekend. We'll be heading there for Justin to attend a Gastroenterology conference, & I'll get to explore a new city in North Carolina. I can't wait!
wearing bright colors this spring. Following in the inspired footsteps of ChelseaWears, I've gone through my makeup collection & selected items I'm excited to bring out for Spring. Now, I can't wait to paint my nails bold colors!
loving my decision to buy beautiful notebooks & fill them up with whatever I want. In the past, I've put a lot of pressure on myself to determine a certain & specific function for each notebook, leading to me not really writing anything in any of them. So, from now, on, in any given notebook, you may find sketches, lists, journal entries... you get the picture.
wanting my skin to clear up. I've stopped taking my Biotin supplements, because I've heard that it can break you out, & I'm pretty sure that's the culprit here.
needing to keep the house clean this week - & ultimately, that means DOING LAUNDRY. We have family coming in a couple weekends, which means things need to look extra nice around here.
feeling excited about all the bright nail polish & lipsticks I've found in my collection, that I'm going to be busting out for Spring. I've decided that Spring is going to start on March 1. So, my last dark manicure for the season is currently on my nails. It's Sally Hansen's Grey Area.
clicking this tutorial for making glitter letters in Photoshop Elements. I don't own this software yet, but I am looking to get it sometime in the near future. It's about time I've started learning Photoshop, & since Elements is less expensive, that's where I'm going to start.
