Last week I looked at the calendar and gave myself a start. It's as if three months went by without me even realizing it. They just walked on past, gave a little backwards wave, and rounded the corner. And I found myself wishing I could get all those days back, and not because I wasted them or didn't feel like I worked them to their full potential. I thoroughly enjoy all my hours. It's just that I want more of them. There doesn't seem to be enough time for all the cloud watching, book reading, and thought thinking I want to do.
So after my mini shock episode wore off, I decided to make a conscious effort to make each day memorable. And I'm not talking about fireworks in the night sky memorable, but memorable in a way that only I could appreciate. Kind of like when you look at an old ticket stub and can't help but smile, but to any other person it's just a piece of printed paper. Some things I'd like to do on the daily are: make my mom laugh, listen to French music, read something profound, put on a dress, eat something chocolatey, lay on the grass and talk with the breeze, fill a notebook page, play the piano, catch sunlight in cupped hands, feel loved.
Not such a tall order, amiright? But I think it'll make the rest of this June worth remembering. What are some little things you'd like to do?
And do you recognize this polka dot top? It's actually the Moonchild Vintage shift dress I wore in this post. I think it's adorable on its own, but when I was thinking of how else to style it I kept looking at the neckline and liking how it would look as a top. So I popped my full midi skirt on top to add some drama to the look, and then tied a silk scarf around my neck to give add some interest. I like the subtle pattern mixing the scarf gives, and how it ties together the look. Now I kind of want to hunt down a bunch more at the thrift store today- I can already feel the itch to go wild with it coming on, haha.
