Weekly Wisdom

For those of you who don't know I lived in Disney World for about a year a few years back, I very luckily got the chance to be a Disney College Program Participant !! :) My life forever changed after Disney, I learned a lot about life and myself. I have so many things I want to accomplish in life and I know with my determination I will get there. I may not be where I want right now, the city, the state or even the attitude everyday, but thats the exact place I'm meant to be, I'm getting there, I'm molding myself every minute and I'm becoming who I'm meant to be. It may not be the ideal situation but its part of my path, and thats the path that I will continue toward greatness. I know who I am and where I want to be and you bet, I will get there. But how? You see, thats the beauty of it. The journey. The Climb....

Here's some weekly wisdom in the shape of a Disney Lyric, Miley Cyrus.
Beauty in these words....

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side, It's the climb

The Bridal Shower !!!

Soooo my best friend is getting married October 27th, I've been in a few before but this was a big deal to me, im the MOH !!! And boy did I agree to a big job, very much fun but crazy stressful !!! We had the shower at a local Italian restaurant a delicious hot lunch buffet with the biggest dessert table (picture does NO justice) mind you maybe only 10 thing total were eaten off of it. Ugh- leftovers...

We had a tiffanys theme and boy did I have fun with that, pearls and diamonds :) yay !!!
Anyway, the day was beautiful, full of laughs, smiles, wine, teasing and treats !!! The wedding is soooo soon and I can't wait to share the Bachelorette Party with you guys :)

Simple Seven

In a world so chaotic, it's the nicest thing to recap and truly reflect on the things that make you happy. Loving life these days. I've been a bit down and feeling a little gloomy because I'm not totally happy with life. It's weird, I've realized more and more lately, how many things and people I have in life to be truly grateful for. Can't wait to start the journey that we have ahead of is within the next year but so happy to be enjoying each day along the way, the little things :)

New found love-exploring the local liquor store :)

Experiments in the kitchen :) Amazing flatbread pizza :)

Constant laughter with friends

New presents from bf :)

Working away on bracelets to open the shop !!

Really sweet tips at the bar, NOT !

Fab New Find- Pumpkin Cream cheese and cinnamon bagels :)

Til Next time, XOXO Meg

Hi Friends !!! My page has been under a series of reconstructive efforts and I'm back, new look, new me. I'm afraid I'll swarm you with posts if I don't quickly update you. I haven't posted since December 2010. Since then, I have experienced the worst roller coaster of my life, a broken heart, college graduation, A Florida/Disney/Beach/Reunion/Vacation, countless interviews, four-five jobs, new friends, new love, lost relationships, three new apartments, promotions, First cruise, another small vacation, a few independent design projects, one HUGE opportunity to hopefully change my design career, bf's promotion that will hopefully move us to SC, and an up and coming independent business of greeting cards, print design, bracelets and creative services !!! Phewf. Im sure everyone else's life has been just as crazy but I sure am ready for fall and now that life has calmed down a smidge, Im ready to start faithfully blogging again. Much love Til then- BelieveInMe
