My most recent adventures will have to wait for I am so tired
I just do not have the energy to edit and comb through all the images
I did have a lovely weekend and I do so kindly thank you for your well wishes
todays post has been rolling around in my mind all day
I am pulled to talk you about two very different things
and yet they play hand in hand that I am trying to bring my thoughts together.
The first: Where do you belong?
Are you happy where you live?
Are you there by choice, by habit, connivence, loyalty, finances...?
I have been thinking a lot about the idea of home
when I was a little girl we lived in a small town
not a cute little town just a small farming community with a Walmart
I hated that town and always imagined myself a city gal
well funny how things change... now I am a young woman dreaming of the country life
looking upon each small town with fondness
My husband who also grew up in the rural country side
shares this dream with me
we frequently brows the real estate ads just dreaming of our perfect little farm
(of coarse it would be a play farm)
both children of farmers there is something deep inside us that longs for the quite pace of the country land the small community lifestyle
I hope we don't dream too long... but life is as it is now and I try my best to enjoy every minute of city life... the convinces and my wonderful urban friends.
Secondly: My perception of Myself
I'm not really sure how to quite say what I want to say.
But as of late I have really been questioning how much I am influenced by our culture
as much as I am my own person
I feel like I am too often led astray
perhaps it is because I have not found my own rhythm in life
I swing from one thing or another
but I should like very very much to be 100% my own person
To be braver and more bold... not caring what my peers might think
and while it might sound silly
I think my fashion is a disgrace!
One day I am all dolled up and the next I'm parading around in my pajama pants all day
and even worse yet I get all tangled up in what is trendy from this day to the next!
I have such an urge to purge a good deal of my wardrobe
and only buy things I really really love
why don't we live by the lifestyles we dream of?
why do we only wear dresses on sundays or "costumes" on holidays
Well give me strength I plan to change my silly ways
and live by my own accord
I want to live a simpler yet more elegant lifestyle
I want my life to be richer and full everyday... not just on "special" holidays
hmmmm Does any of this nonsense mean anything to you?
Well it really doesn't matter... just me letting go of my thought
trying to find meaning in this jumbled up little noggin of mine
Well just for fun I grabbed a few photos form flickr and etsy to show you what I might buy if I had the chance to create a new wardrobe all at once
OH WHAT FUN THAT WOULD BE!!!!!
(click images for the lovely sources)
I love this beautiful skirt most of all!!!!!
well I promise I will have new airstream adventure pictures soon enough
Hope you all had a lovely long weekend and you enjoy the quick week as best you can
