let it all go

one of the hardest lessons we learn in life is how to let go.  moving on from painful memories, past loves, a difficult past, it isn't easy.  sometimes clinging to the memory is easier than accepting a world where that life no longer exists.  but if there is one thing i have learned it is that there is beauty in letting go of the pain and embracing the exciting and sometimes frightening new world that lies ahead.  it is truly liberating.  today, try to let go of the things that have been burdening you, that have been weighing you down.  embrace the reality of what you are going through, no matter how difficult, and take comfort in the fact that a beautiful new world lies before you.

live for you

with all the things we have going on in life it can sometimes seem to be too overwhelming to deal with. it is so important to take a step back, gain a new perspective, and do what is truly best for you.  we all need to live in a way that is true to our genuine selves.  so every day, take what you need.

flakes dancing in the wind

  snow has officially over taken the east coast, coating the shore in a whimsical layer of white.  i have to admit, i have been reluctant to embrace this time of year, especially after enduring the wrath of sandy.  but the first snowfall of the season has reminded me why i have always adored the chillier months.  days spent cuddling up on the couch with my pup, cozied up in my beloved winter sweaters and cute little wool socks, sipping on my signature hot chocolate, watching the snow fall and dance outside my window.  pulling out long forgotten winter coats from the back of the closet and layering on the scarves and mittens and beanies, all necessities for bitter east coast winter, and some of my favorite cold weather pieces.  oh how i love these snowy winter days.
