What Season Are You?


They say people are like seasons. 
We come into each others lives at certain times when we’re both learning something particular about ourselves. 
If we hang out for a while, something clearly clicks between us. 
We’re dancing together, we’re on the same level, there's passion. 
It’s hard to tell how long we’ll stay together, how long it will make sense, maybe forever if it really feels right. 
Or maybe it will be a roller coaster. If that's the case will the point of gravity be strong enough to hold us together? 
Will what holds us together be based out of fear or a positive aspect? 

What season are you?

Fear of Flow

Water flows. 
It has no emotion to confuse or delay it. 
No thoughts to direct it. It just runs, fluidly, freely, wildly. 
Nothing scares it. 
It lets go and moves effortlessly from one place to the next. 
How I wish I could be more like water!



Have you ever melted into its soul? Let the running water trickle through your brain? Relax you, letting it rinse and cleanse you of your unnecessary emotions? It is life changing.

I had a realization that my biggest fear is water.

I imagine myself living near the ocean- lush greenery, warm weather, sand beaches. I imagine being on the shore watching the heavy waves roll in, hearing them break on the bank with such deep, pounding soul, sinking into

Keep Our Library Strong- VOTE TOMORROW for 1!



Tomorrow...TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH, 2013 VOTE FOR ISSUE 1 to keep our LIBRARIES open and functioning!  

It will not increase your taxes and even if it did I hope our community would have the decency to vote for it anyway... :)

If Issue 1 is not renewed The Pubic Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County will instantly loose $17 million dollars in funding-1/3 of its entire budget. A loss this size will force almost half of our 40 branches to close, it will result in shorter operating hours, a reduced staff, cut programs, and fewer materials available to the public.  This all means less access to the educational oasis that is our library- a devastating blow to our community.

But lets look on the bright side...

Cincinnati Pride Parade!


All across the U.S. this past week/ weekend the country commemorated the Stonewall riots of 1969 and celebrated the LGBT community with Pride Parades!  Cincinnati was no exception.  Although it dropped buckets of rain, we still celebrated.  More rain, more rainbows.  I love events that make you want to dance with joy and run around and hug every stranger you see- life should be a continuous Pride Parade.  Oh happy day!

Fundraiser Event OOTD!


Hello! Here is the outfit I was to wear to the CincyChic fundraiser on the Purple People Bridge, but unfortunately it rained so much that we opted to stay indoors.  So this became an outfit post instead.

As a self-professed comfort babe who opts for yoga pants any day of the week, I always feel fabulous when I finally get my shit together and do my hair and makeup.  Of course I have to be willing to commit to that extra hour of blow drying and curling my hair, and applying my makeup, but hey why not?

What you'll need for two drinks:
