Is anyone else having a bitter sweet moment today? While I am excited for the long weekend, I am not sure if I am ready to say so long to summer and my flip flops.  So much has changed this summer and it was definitely one for the books. This summer marked my quarter-of-a-century birthday, a new career, and a new city. Being a 20 something definitely has had its obstacles, ya know, like figuring out what you want to do with the rest of your life, or feeling like there is some sort of rule book for how life is supposed to be.

One of my girlfriends recently sent me a quote that really caught my attention. “There is nothing wrong with being typical but there is nothing fundamentally right with it either” (Bob Goff- Love Does). Honestly sometimes I get caught up in what everyone else is doing instead of doing what I feel is the right way to live, or the right thing to do, because let’s be honest does anyone even know the answer.  So as the summer winds down, my goal is to focus on acheieving greatness-in my own mind. I am going to be working on some fun projects, but I want to hear from you! Is there anything more/ different you would like to see here? Like more outfits, recipes, or a little inside into my daily life?  I would love the input, because you guys are the reason I love to write this blog!

    Achieve greatness in your own mind? All you do is rip-off other blogger's content, concepts, layouts, and ideas. Perhaps the best thing for you to do is STOP BLOGGING. The reason you get caught up in what other people are doing is because you have NO IDEA what you are doing. No one reads your blog because you offer nothing original and you have no style. Take that home and chew it. Sad, sad little girl – in Ohio no less.
