in one of my moods.

 tan sweater: f21 / green sweater: H+M / pants: TJMaxx / ring: charming charlie's / hanakai wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes

sometimes you just need a vacay - and i needed one at the end of last year. i felt a little burnt out, so tired and was grateful to have the chance to get away to Atlanta last week. i spent a couple of suh-weet days with Ryan and got to have the best sushi date with one of my girlfriends - and my family and i as always had a blast being together! 

and now that i've had my recharge, i'm super excited about this new year! i feel ambitious and inspired. i feel hopeful and grateful. it's almost a Titanic moment - where i could stand at the tip of a ship and spread my wings out. 
probably the cheesiest line i've ever written, but i'm not even joking. 

this is a bit delayed, but i'm gonna do it anyways! raising my bottle of glacier freeze Gatorade (got yours, Steph?!), here's to one heck of an awesome brand new year!

much love.
[happy weekend, friend.]

p.s.  suh-weet giveaways galore! here and there!
