SATURDAY SAYINGS | SUCCESS, SYNCHRONICITY AND SIGNS IN OUR LIFE


HAPPY SATURDAY, EVERYONE!

i've been doing a lot of reading and research, as my new chapter begins, on VISUALIZING what it is you want most, putting it out into the universe, AND THEN, RECOGNIZING SYNCHRONICITY and THE signs PLACED BEFORE uS. 

MY INTEREST WAS PEEKED AFTER I BEGAN TO NOTICE WHAT APPEARED TO BE VERY CLEAR "SIGNS" IN FRONT OF ME.  EACH POINTING IN ONE DIRECTION, a direction i was already going on VIA A LEAP OF FAITH, but they APPEARED SO FREQUENTLY THAT I REALLY STARTED TO TAKE NOTE. 

IT WAS almost as THOUGH THEY WERE PLACED THERE TO LET ME KNOW I WAS ON THE right track. I SUPPOSE ONLY TIME WILL TELL, BUT they appeaR SO often THAT I'VE STARTED TO DOCUMENT EACH, WHICH I MAY SHARE HERE IN THE FUTURE.

ANYWHO, THIS ALL INSPIRED THIS WEEK'S QUOTES AND INSPIRATION!

NOW, I'M OFF TO SPEND THE WEEKEND WITH MY BEST FRIEND FROM COLLEGE AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING HOME AGAIN AND GOING ON A SUNDAY MORNING HIKE IN THE MOUNTAINS . . . WHAT ARE YOU UP TO?

LIFE | 9-11 MEMORIAL TRIBUTE IN LIGHTS + A BRIEF SEPTEMBER 11TH REFLECTION


HAPPY MONDAY, EVERYONE!

I AM THINKING OF AND REFLECTING ON SEPTEMBER 11TH TODAY, ALONG WITH MOST OF THE WORLD, AND AM SENDING VIRTUAL HUGS.

NO MATTER HOW MANY YEARS PASS, IT IS SOMETHING I REMEMBER VIVIDLY.  I WAS LIVING IN NYC WHEN IT ALL HAPPENED AND IT IS THE SOUNDS FROM THAT DAY WHICH STAND OUT THE MOST TO ME 16 YEARS LATER.

a year or so after THat fateful day, I MOVED OUT OF NYC TO LOS ANGELES, BUT THE MAGIC OF THE CITY LURRED ME BACK ALMOST A DECADE LATER.  TO THIS DAY, NEW YORK CITY IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CITIES IN THE WORLD!

Over the years, I HAVE REFLECTED ON this day here ON MY BLOG IN THE PAST VIA A LETTER TO NEW YORK CITY, IN A 12TH ANNIVERSARY REFLECTION, A SEPTEMBER 11TH REFLECTION AND I REMEMBER 9.11.01,  AMONG OTHERS.

BELOW, I SHARE AN IMAGE I CREATED DAYS AFTER THE EVENT, WHILE LIVING IN NYC, TO SIMPLY SHOW MY SUPPORT. as well as A COUPLE PICTURES I TOOK looking up FROM THE ROOFTOP OF MY APARTMENT IN THE FINANCIAL DISTRICT A COUPLE YEARS AGO, WHERE I SAT WITH MY THOUGHTS AND MEMORIES FROM THAT DAY IN 2001.

in the photos you SEE THE 9-11 MEMORIAL TRIBUTE LIGHTS SHINING BRIGHTLY AND ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER AND THE FREEDOM TOWER STANDING TALL NEAR BY. ALMOST AS TO SAY, I'M LOOKING OUT OVER YOU AND WILL NEVER FORGET.

HOME DECOR | ADD CHIC DESIGN DETAILS WITH HASSEL-FREE SUCCULENTS


HAPPY TUESDAY, BLOGLAND!

IN THE MIDST OF MY BIG MOVE TO DENVER NEXT MONTH, I'M MOST EXCITED TO DESIGN AND DECORATE MY NEW LITTLE PLACE because I love home deCor AND ENJOY COMING UP WTH WAYS TO DECORATE FOR LESS EVEN MORE!

I KNEW I WANTED TO ADD SUCCULENT plant DETAILS TO COMPLIMENT MY RUSTIC ELEGANT SYLE with a modern edge AND ALSO help TO BRING A LITTLE FRESH GREEN COLOR INTO MY SPACE. 

IN THE MIDDLE OF MY MOVE, SOMEONE FROM COMMERCIALSILK.COM, AN ONLINE ARTIFICIAL PLANTS AND TREES SHOP, REACHED OUT TO SEE IF THEY COULD SEND ME SOME succulents TO use in my new place and SHARE WITH ALL OF you.

I WAS EXCITED TO COLLABORATE AND LOOKED FORWARD TO RECEIVING THEM, BUT TO BE HONEST, I WAS ALSO SKEPTICAL AS TO IF THEY WOULD ACTUALLY LOOK REAL.

I HAVE A FAUX ORCHID THAT LOOKS VERY REAL, AND IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS, BUT I'VE BEEN LOOKING AT HOME GOODS AND in AFFORDABLE DECOR SHOPS FOR SUCCULENTS AND THEY LOOK VERY PLASTIC AND FAKE, EVEN FROM A FAR.

HOWEVER, WHEN theSE arrived i was IN AWE OF how real they looK, instantly fell in love AND WANTED MORE.  SO, IF YOU DON'T WANT THE HASsLE OF KEEPING A PLANT ALIVE, BUT WANT THE LOOK OF A REAL ONE, THESE ARE IDEAL FOR YOU!

iF YOU AREN'T INTO SUCCULENTS, THEY HAVE A VARIETY OF ORCHIDS, PLANTS, trees AND MORE, in WIDE price ranges, TO BEST SUIT YOUR STYLE.

THESE ARE GOING TO MAKE THE PERFECT DECOR ACCENTS IN MY NEW APARTMENT, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO DECORATE WITH THEM - SO STAY TUNED FOR THAT!
