Happy September! This time of year is always my favorite. Not only is my 24th birthday is a mere month away, but fall just has this warmth and coziness that is inescapable. It’s still nice enough to enjoy life outdoors, but cool enough for deliciously warm drinks and a nice blanket. That being said, I live in Texas where it’s 103 degrees today so that cool weather fantasy may be just that. We’ll see.
My family owns a wedding/event planning business and last week my mom hired me on as a designer to help out with the details. The space were the ceremony took place at Winfrey Point in Dallas, which is beautiful in that simple, rustic sort of way. I have to admit, though, that my favorite part was exploring the floral warehouse. The most beautiful, sweet smelling flowers everywhere I turned!
I’m preparing for a juice cleanse at the end of this week. Currently, I’m in the “ease-in” portion which means eating even more raw fruits and veggies than I usually do. These fresh Lychee were both beautiful AND delicious. I love finding little treats like this at the Asian markets- they have some fantastic produce. As for the cleanse, I’ll report back with details and results.
It seems that every time I put a little more on my plate than I can easily handle, the Universe comes up with a crazy obvious way to tell me to slow down a bit. This time? A cold. Thankfully, though, sweet Penelope has taken up residence in bed with me to keep me company and make sure I don’t work too much.
