Remember to Have Fun and PLAY!!

     So today, I chose this funny flower as reminder for myself as I'm rediscovering how to PLAY again ^_^  Life should be fun.  I'm starting to do things that make me happy no matter how silly or mundane they are - just like when I was young.  I put it on my table where I sit every morning when I journal and give myself some quiet time to work on myself. 

Which brings me to this quote of the day that I chose - I really love it.  
We can only be the best that we can be - ourselves.  No one else can be us.  
Only you can be you.

A Redesign of My Bedroom for a New Chapter - Moroccan Inspiration

     I decided to redo my bedroom because I'm starting a new chapter of my life and I want a clean slate with fresh beginnings.  I'd like for my surroundings to reflect who I am and where I am right now in life.  I imagine a bedroom where everything is low to the ground and I can invite friends and family to hang out with me in my room.  A place that can be a sanctuary, that's full of hope and joie de vivre, a place that's warm and inviting and last but not least, inspirational.  This is the inspiration photo I'm using to redo my bedroom.  I'm in the process of getting rid of a lot of things including my bed frame, dresser and much more.  It's quite a therapeutic process to clean out both physically and metaphorically.  The room is a guest bedroom in a house in Marrakesh (Vogue Living Australia.)  Anyone else cleaning out or doing a redesign?

Thought for the Day

     I started self therapy and journaling towards the beginning of this month.  Part of what I've been doing is choosing quotes and concepts every day - whatever strikes me (I just open the book and flip until I find one that I can connect with that day) to reflect and write about.  Somehow, the act of getting my thoughts on paper helps center and clarify things for me more.

    This page comes out of a book by Mike Dooley called "Choose Them Wisely."  It's referring to thoughts because thoughts become things.

Girl's Cheese and Liqueur Night

        For the first time in a long time, had a wonderful get together for three of us girls.  I don't know about you, but I really adore cheese.  My friend Hanny is a dear friend I've known since high school who majored in interior design (her home always looks like it's staged but it's not lol.)  She introduced me to Tiffany who is passionate about cheese and design (interesting combo :)  I'm definitely not one to judge because my own interests are all over the place - schizophrenic interests ^_^  The girls brought over four different cheeses, olives, marinated artichokes, prosciutto and rosemary garlic Turkey sliced meet - yes you heard right.  Delish!!  It was intimate and fun, next time I'll need to invite more foodie girlfriends over to share.  I provided the liqueur, I'll have to do another post later about liqueurs.  I have quite the sweet tooth and a pretty decent collection of liqueurs.

In the mean time, definitely check out Tiffany's blog if you want to know more about cheese and see her design inspirations Triple Creme Decadence.
