100 Things {week ten!!}

Monday, August 29, 2011

Happy Monday everyone!

What a whirlwind last week was, cannot believe I have been back for an entire week (where did it go?!). I finally am over my jet legged and feeling semi-back to normal/caught up.

I am so sad that this is the last week of the 100 things series...I was not as consistent as I hoped (technically this post should be tomorrow) but I am proud that I actually saw it through to the end amongst all the day-to-day chaos!

My final ten things are all from Greece...I found myself day and night grinning from ear to ear...everything is better there. My best friend Georgia once told me "You can be sitting on a balcony doing nothing in Greece and you will still be having a better time that you would back home..." You know what...she is absolutely right!

Thanks for all the love and support with this series, a big thank you to the lovely Sofia for starting this series and inviting all bloggers to give it a try! I highly recommend it, I will miss it and I know I'm going to have to do some sporadic happy things posts in the months to come.

Enjoy! xo

#91 Long days spent on the beach

#92 Walking along the dock and finding boats named after me! So exciting each time...and
maybe just maybe I pretended in my mind it was my boat...no harm in that!

#93 Frappe's in Greece...I had to cut myself off from having 5x a day...so good

#94 Souvenir shopping, so many fun things to look that and bring home as gifts!

#95 These mini ice cream cones made me smile every day...how cute are they?!

#96 Being able to nap until 11pm and then get up, great ready and enjoy a lovely dinner
at midnight (followed by fabulous beverages) and this be perfectly normal in Greece.
Love it!

#97 Sunsets like these...

#98 Views like this....

#99 Shopping in Greece! Dangerous on the bank account but so fun!

#100 The feeling of the ocean running through your toes...calming and lovely.

Till the next series! xo

Home sweet home!

Feels good to be back!

I have missed blogging dearly as well as reading all of your blogs...so much to catch up on! With that being said I cannot lie it was amazing being unplugged for two weeks, it's amazing how with a little time off everything immediately gets put back into perspective...what's really important, what really makes you happy etc. It was liberating.

To say I had an incredible time in Greece would be an understatement, seeing family, listening to the music, speaking the language, eating everything in sight, the golden sun...pure bliss! TONS of photos to share with you all, bare with me as I sift through the 3000+ images ;)

Above is a photo I snapped the last night in Athens, the boyfriend and I enjoyed a very romantic dinner overlooking the city as the sun set. Was a perfect ending to a perfect trip.

Hope you are all well, to my new followers welcome! :)

Enjoy xo

Lets slow down

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

As I get older time seems to move faster and faster. Gone are the days where the summer felt endless. Before you know it a week passes, then a month, and then an entire year. This post is to remind everyone especially myself to slow down from time to time and enjoy the simple things in life. Reflect on what is really important, relax, make time to do nothing, take a long walk or drive to see that sunset.

Just something to think about and this is exactly what I intend to do on my vacation coming up.

Enjoy xo
