Not to worry

Do you have a person in your life that means so much to you that you don't want to worry them? You care about them so much that you feel like worrying them hurts you inside.

I always thought that loving someone means that you want to share everything with them, but I've come to realize that you also become very protective of that person. In a way you want to make sure that they never feel bad, down or worried. Even though you know they will inevitable have bad days, you don't want to be the reason for it.

Do you know what I mean?

He said: How are you feeling?
She said: I'm ok (even though they both know she's not ok).
He said: Promise?
She said: Yes, it will pass and I'll be fine. Please don't worry.
He said: I worry only for you and I'm worried.
She said: Please don't (trying to sound as cheerful and normal as possible). I'll be fine.
He said: I know you're a strong girl.

New Find

Today I came across a refreshingly witty blog and as I was scrolling back up to the top of the page I noticed one of the best quotes I've read in a long time.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping in leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that love is the best calorie burner. I believe that happiest girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

- Audrey Hepburn

So thank you International Woman of Mystery for the nice escape. Sorry everyone still getting over this annoying stomach flu and so uninspired to write.

Autumn in January

I live in a country where it seems like it's summer year around but recently the weather has changed. For the first time in a long time it actually feels like autumn and it brings back great memories. I know it sounds weird autumn in January? But really it feels like a typical autumn day with clouds, a little rain and that quintessential autumn chill.

It reminds me of strolls in St-Germain accented with the smell of boulangeries filling the air and comfy autumn clothes, the staple scarf, softness of my favorite cashmere sweater, vintage jeans, ballet flats and the as needed jacket. Of course all those feelings and memories were magnified as I was browsing one of my favorite blogs today...The Sartorialist.

I'm still here, but my mind has been transported thousands of miles away to my favorite place.

He said: I would love to see Paris through your eyes.
She said: Paris is the only place that I felt at peace, a place that I can have for myself and you're the only person I've wanted to experience it with again.

One of those days...

So I've had the most annoying stomach flu since annoying that I've been on liquid only for most of the week..and I can't wait to get this over with...

It's funny how when you're sick you start craving the things you normally don't crave...for me a hamburger...:-/ no clue where that's coming from...

But I'm craving something autumn day in new york city...just walking around with my headphones blasting tunes and spending the afternoon in an amazing bookstore followed by a stop at a gourmet store and just going back to my place and making something amazing to eat....then just curling up on the couch and watching one of my favorite movies...oh how I wish I could have that exact day right now...

He said: How about I get a place for you to escape to whenever you feel like you need to get away.
She said: Noooo don't do that...I'll be fine I just get that feeling sometimes...then it passes..

Confession one of my favorite movies is Hitch.

Sara: What should we toast to?
Hitch: Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

I hate it when..

I hate it when your favorite heels are not comfortable anymore. I usually wear heels even though to be honest I don't need it. I'm pretty tall as is but my dressy clothes all need heels so I'm forced to wear them. Today is one of those days when I hate heels. The part I hate the most is that I can't go running today because my heels just killed my feet.

How hard is it to make comfortable heels? If I could combine the support of my running shoes and the sleek look of my heels I would be in heaven.

What to do?

What do you do if someone very dear and close to you gives you advice to do one thing and your gut is telling you to do the opposite?

I would usually just follow my gut but I keep thinking it over. Honestly I would absolutely hate upsetting this person. They mean too much to me.

What to do?

I don't know what's going on but I feel kind of down lately. I come home exhausted and feeling drained and the worst part of all I feel a little grumpy.

More and more I wish I had my own place. I've reached that point where I feel like I need my own place. Don't get my wrong I love my family but I've always been a pretty independent person that likes my space.

I feel like I have so much to get off my chest but when it comes time to talk or to even write my mind draws a blank.

Have you ever?

Last night I had a heart-to-heart with someone very dear and close to me. He shared with me somethings going on in his life and I reassured him that it doesn't change my opinion of him and honestly it doesn't. However, I woke up this morning and replayed the conversation in my head and I feel a little uneasy. It hasn't changed my opinion of him but I feel like I didn't have to know.

Have you ever been in a position where you don't know if you wanted the extra information or not?

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!! May this year bring everyone happiness, health and prosperity.

I think this year I will do away with making resolutions except one which is living by Mark Twain's quote:

"Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching and live like its heaven on earth."
