Yet another bubble bath picture, Sunday reset, relax and unwind. Epiphanies, inspiration, clearing my head, happinesses, creating, making music with friends and making more music with my Sunshine. Permasmile for miles, blue skies, cloudless thoughts, pure joy I’m grateful for life and family and friends and love and lessons to grow and always be keeping my perspective as much towards the sun as possible. #life #reset #love #be
Thinking about nothing. But thinking about something.
Every day seems to be a different adventure full of different emotions, sometimes dealing with emotions from the day before only this time the emotions are a little different with a new perspective. Sometimes I really wish I could just turn off my brain and not think.
People tell me about meditating and how they get to this point where they really aren’t thinking about ANYTHING at all. What the heck? How can you not think about nothing? I really have tried, but a thought sneaks in there and that leads to another thought and then bam, flood gates are open and the thoughts keep coming in.
I’ve been thinking a lot about life and the fragility of life and last night, when I wanted to read, I instead sat at the bar at my home away from home (The Rooster & Moon), buried myself into writing a letter and then, with permission from one of the cafe’s proprietor’s, wrote “You are loved” and “You are beautiful” on all of the silverware wraps.
Maybe the best way to cope with sadness and being aware that life is so fragile is to just spread the love even more and let people know how much they are loved, even if you don’t even know them.
Life unfolding around the broomstick in front if our very eyes. What an amazing experience to see the little life of animals we see every day do what’s natural. It reminds us to take notice of the little things all around us finding the beauty in the things we see.

life in transition: from my humble abode to the Browndie Palace
it’s been a long time since my last meaningful blog post and so much has happened! since i really last sat down and wrote, i moved in with my boyfriend! so, i’ve been in transition for the past few weeks. i always told myself that i wasn’t leaving my apartment unless i completely fell in love or moved out of the country. and, well… quite frankly, i’m in love!
i said goodbye to my cute capital hill apartment and hello to the new Browndie Palace. although i’ve traded in my solo apartment with tons of closet space for a 2 foot closet, i feel so at home. at first i freaked out. 2 feet of closet space? james was ready to rearrange the storage room to make it my closet but i moved over a rolling rack and voila! closet situation fixed! my handbag collection is a little too much for the closet so we turned the ice box into my handbag closet! perfect! who needs ice anyway :)
one adjustment is now having to commute to work. i am no longer 7 blocks away from Fashion Denver but 6 whole miles! i can either a) drive or b) take the bus or c)ride my bike. so far i’ve done a & b. also, i’m no longer in my capital hill neighborhood. i’m on the cusp of Aurora and Stapleton. no more cozy little whole in the wall bars but either big box corpo places or east east colfax places. it’s an adjustment for sure. however, i did discover a great little ghetto fabulous shop just blocks from me. that’s a plus :)
i love being in a house. james bought this house 5 years ago. when i first met him, it seemed empty. it looked like he just moved in. over the chilly winter, we started nesting, hanging up his artwork, getting furniture for his house, beautiful dining room table and chairs, couch and love seat, shelves. his house became a home. and then we had the idea to move in together and within 3 days of deciding that, i was moving my capital hill lifestyle over to our Browndie Palace. and voila! here i am!
i shall conclude this post and sign off in happiness.
Raindrop meditation and couches.
I’ve been working at my computer for the past few hours, setting up the week so the little administrative stuff is done so I can focus on the bigger picture for our next week. I’ve been faced with a little bit of negativity and misunderstanding that’s bothered me for the past 24 hours, but then I realized, that there really is nothing I can do. I have to move on and move past it, and let go.
That’s when I thought it would be a good idea to step out into the raindrops and breathe, letting the cool air wash away any bad vibes that I feel. I wish I could meditate for longer periods of time. My attention span is short and my feet got cold out in the rain, so I came in.
JB is feeling a lot better and not contagious with his flu-like symptoms and it’s nice to be back in his loving arms. It’s also a wonderful feeling to be with somebody who understands me and who I can talk to about anything.
I’m grateful for wonderful, healthy, strong relationships that are full of love and support. I’m grateful for friendships that inspire me, guide me, and provide me insight into life.
On other notes, we went couch shopping today. There are many things one must look for in finding the perfect couch.
I think we found the perfect couch for James’ house! A good couch is the staple to any living room and it’s an investment.
I remember moving into my very own apartment 5 years ago, without a boyfriend and finally living on my own. The first thing I did was go out and buy a big beautiful red couch. In my 20’s and early 30’s, I’ve always lived with my boyfriend at the time. And now, in my mid 30’s and completely in love, I appreciate my own space! A place where I can go that’s all mine. Of course, I love to share it with the people that I love, but what it comes down to is it is my safe haven where I can be me. I appreciate having our own spaces and simultaneously, I love sharing our spaces.
This is my big red couch that I bought 5 years ago. A representation of my independence.
Wheeewy. I’m sleepy and want to be rested for a productive week ahead. I shall close by saying, that this was a successful Sunday. Full of relaxation, love, productivity, and couches.
New and Improved. My mind feels much more clear!
I’ve been a busy bee over here! Our Fashion Denver Showroom & Boutique is all set up and feels like new! Here are some snaps I took with my camera. Yahooo! It feels good to have that project complete! I’m happy that I could be patient with myself during the process. Sometimes I get impatient and want to give up, but I did not do that :)
