Still Alive

I haven't had the time or energy for a proper post lately for numerous reasons. While driving to work a few weeks ago, I was in a car accident. Luckily, myself and the other driver are perfectly unharmed. My car was totaled and the process of dealing with insurance and finding a new car has been exhausting. Alas, I was fairly compensated for my totaled car and am now driving the amazing feat of modern technology known as the Toyota Prius. However, I'm especially tired of talking about the whole incident, so enough

With all the stress I've been through, I did feel it necessary to treat myself to something lovely that I've wanted for a while. I must say, I was not disappointed with this beauty at all.

School is starting next week and have mixed feelings about it. The end of summer is always a bit melancholy for me. Summer holds all of my dearest memories and my heart is always aglow during the warm months. We're just now getting true summer heat in san Diego, so I'm hoping that summer will extend into fall this year.

To help keep me organized this school year, I bought Jill Bliss's Floral Leaves Datebook. This datebook is the perfect size to throw in my purse and I love that my days will be filled with Jill's lovely plant drawings.

Sorry for all the randomness. Nothing else exciting to report on from here and I promise do do a proper post soon.
