Giant Leaps

Things are finally starting to come together I think.  I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone and while I'm scared to do so, I am also starting to get really excited about it. 

Styleweek Providence is starting soon and thanks to a childhood friend, my sister in law and I will be in attendance Saturday, January 22.  Accessory showcase, 3 runway shows, a housewife from New York... I will be covering it all for Buy-Her.  All that's left to do is go out and shop for a cute outfit!

I'm writing a lot more and I am loving it.  Writing has always been somewhat of a constant in my life.  Growing up I may have changed my mind several times about just what I would do with my life, but writing was always there on the side through journals, short stories and more.  I started college as a communications major before switching to physical education and find it funny that years later I am back to writing again. 

I have long wondered what my purpose is, what I am meant to do.  While I still may not know the answer, I do realize that this is something I am finally getting really excited about.

I took a giant leap yesterday and I registered to attend Getting Gorgeous NYC in April.  I will be getting on a train to New York City and attending this conference where I know nobody.  If you know me even a little you know that this is the sort of thing that I just do not do.  And it's freaking me out already.  Yet each time I think about going, I can't help but smile either.

Of course check back with me the night before, or that morning ... that smile may have changed to total fear.  But for once I am going to push through it and just do it.

  1. I'm going, so you will know at least 1 person there. I don't know how I am getting there, where I am staying (10 hours of driving is too much for me in one day), or how I am getting back, but you will have a FRIEND with you. And don't worry, I'll help you navigate NYC! You'll be a subway PRO when I am through with you! :-)
