I’m feeling overworked & overtired lately and for good reason, so to take my mind off the things I am not so fond of I started keeping a list of things I love and the things in life I don’t love at all in hopes that the good will outweigh the bad. Sometimes when you see things on paper the situation doesn’t seem as bleak, hopeless, and horrible. Instead, it just undesirable and hey I’ll take that!

    Your recent posts remind me why I gave up being a lawyer. Not that that probably makes you feel any better.

    Keep your chin up! Your blog is my favourite and the first one I check everyday. I love your sense of style.

    Take care
