Small Pleasures, Small Pains
Wow, Life has been a bit overwhelming since I came back from France. Okay, a lot overwhelming. Yet somehow I continue to find a way to deal, and to celebrate the small things in life. Like the fabric lining my new shoes (from PayLess)…
…new, expensive bedding (from Target, so I guess the “expensive” part is relative)…
…a smaller bag inside my Longchamp bag, which really IS expensive, or at least would have been, if it hadn’t been a gift from Laura, who also gave me the idea for the bag-within-a-bag, which creates pleasing organizational ease.
And while I’m freaking about whether or not to go to Spain in September (my heart says “get me out of here,” but my wallet says “probably not”), the day-to-day nonsense is not so bad. Like stabbing myself in the leg today with my bike gears, while lowering it from the UTA bus.
I mean, it hurt, but all I could do was think about how cool it looked, and what are the odds, anyways?
I may be sick of Salt Lake, and it’s “hipper-than-thou” mentality, I may be in the throngs of another friend deficit, and I may still be in desperate need of a giant rum and coke (make that a Jack and Coke), but Life goes on. Life goes on, and I enjoy what I have, for the moment, and I read some books. Wash the walls. Bake some muffins. Apply for new jobs…
…blog at work while sitting next to Lindsey, who is also blogging at work. Amazing. Shout out to A Pilgrim’s Progress!
Haha! I saw you had just posted something! And just so you know I am extremely jealous of your longchamp bag, I think I’ve wanted one for the past year but haven’t bought one yet, I’ve been wasting my money on other things like pastries instead. Also, I like the new look of your blog.
p.s. i have your shoes but in black. at least I’m pretty sure I do, I almost wore them today and they have a similar flower print. However, I got them from Payless and not Target.
I think that is among the so much significant info for me. And i am glad studying your article. But want to observation on few general things, The site taste is ideal, the articles is in reality great :D. Good job, cheers.
