SATURDAY SAYINGS | LIFE, LETTING GO AND THE FUTURE INSPIRATION


HAPPY SATURDAY, EVERYONE!

THE FIRST QUOTE BELOW IS ONE THAT WAS SHARED WITH ME BY A FRIEND IN LOS ANGELES. I LOVE IT AND THOUGHT I IT WAS PERFECT FOR SATURDAY SAYINGS!


THE QUOTE ACTUALLY INSPIRED THIS WEEK'S THEME THAT WAS SOLIDIFIED WHEN MY FATHER SENT ME A SCAN OF A QUOTE HE LIKED AND HAD WRITTEN DOWN WHILE IN COLLEGE AND HAD COME ACROSS DURING A RECENT MOVE.


EACH OFFERS WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO THOSE OF YOU WHO MAY NEED SOME WHILE GOING THROUGH TRANSITIONS OF YOUR OWN.


MANY DEAR FRIENDS OF MINE ARE GOING THROUGH JUST THAT, AND SOMETIMES WE NEED TO BE REMINDED TO SIMPLY START WHILE WE MOVE FORWARD TOWARDS BETTER AND BRIGHTER THINGS WITH THE HOPE THAT THE FUTURE HAS A LOT TO OFFER.

CHAPTER 3  |  MY APARTMENT HUNTING ADVENTURE



A couple weeks ago I was back in Denver for 2 short days apartment hunting, interviewing for a fashion stylist job to help me meet people and bring in some other income as I grow my small business and brand.

Just so happens that my dear friend Morgan, whom I met while living in NYC happened to be in town the exact same days, visiting from LA, and so we were able to grab drinks the evening I arrived, which was perfect!

This evening was followed by a whirlwind 24 hours of apartment hunting, and below I take you along via a picture show with some of the highlights. Denver really is beautiful in the fall and the leaves were just beginning to change, which added an extra touch of magic to the adventure. You will also see yummy meals and cozy cocktails from my short time there.

I'm happy to report that I found a complex that simply fits me and my style. Plus, it is in the exact area I had hope to live and within walking distance to great shopping, bars restaurants and my work. Yay!

Until next time, cheers to being one step closer to an exciting new chapter that I'll be bringing you on each step of the way!
