inspire me

Its been tough these past couple of days. And no, I'm not having a personal, existential crisis, nothing of that sort, but I/we are in a middle of a big case at work and its making me so stressed that I'm even having trouble sleeping at night. Obviously I can't talk about it here and as much as I want to write about something else, I just can't do that right now.

So this is where I need your help. I'm trying to think happy thoughts, so if you have time, please drop me a line in the comment section about words or poetry or things that inspire you and make you happy. I would really appreciate it. Gracias.

P.S. What I wouldn't give to be traveling somewhere on a train in Europe right now. With the one I love, of course.

colors, colors everywhere

Hello friends! I know I haven't been posting as much as I used to lately but I'm still here. And I'm proud to say that in the past few days I now have: a clean apartment, a very organized closet, a somewhat organized paperwork, and a plan for the coming winter break and my 30th birthday in December *gasp* - yay!

This weekend my dear friend and fellow SF blogger Holly and I finally got our act together and went to visit a lavender farm in Sonoma County. The lavender fields is like a little slice of paradise and we had the loveliest time. I can only imagine what it will look like when everything here is in bloom.At one point, a group of ladies came by and one of them said, " you guys need little antennas". Apparently she thought we were like busy bees, the way we were jumping everywhere. I thought that was pretty hilarious considering that I was also wearing a black and yellow outfit. Here's Holly taking pictures with her Diana and me flouncing about in the lavender fields.

I've always said that I'm a summer person, growing up in an island and all, but now autumn is slowly wooing me with its breathtaking colors. We saw an artist painting in front of the vineyards and I couldn't imagine a more perfect setting.
And lastly, here's a picture of me with a sprig of lavender and my new skirt from Anthropologie. They make me happy in so many ways.

P.S. How are you? I'd love to hear from you.
