The older I get, the smaller I feel in the world. “Life is fleeting”- a quote people say with cheese in their mouth, haha. But in a non-cheesy way, you have to admit- it truly passes by before we realize what’s happening… One more year then another- we fill in the gaps of each decade and arrive closer to the end our beautiful lives. The idea of my life passing by creates a burning in my heart for all the things I love. My daughter, my boyfriend, my silly dog and all my friends and family… I feel inspired to live fully and love hard those that I care for.
This series reminds me of my childhood- or rather- the way I painted life as a child. I remember seeing magic literally everywhere. I remember life being bigger and broader than the physical confines of my body. That gift of childhood, where magic is but a moments thought away… I miss that.
Sometimes we are gifted with moments or weeks or maybe even a thread of months in adulthood where that magic is rekindled and our spirits come alive. It has nothing to do with reality, which is fine I guess- since what we think of reality comes to an end for everyone anyway. But those beautiful gifts of adult magic are something to be treasured… it’s a gift to meet someone who makes you laugh so hard you cry, or challenges you to see the world with softer eyes. It’s all a part of the magic.
This Spring I send love- a real tangible, magical thing leftover form childhood- out to all my readers. I send you love and my gratitude for being supportive, for sticking around and making my blog come to life. I’m really lucky, blessed and grateful.
About my look: Wearing a treasured Kimono I found at Forever21 (sold out but SIMILAR from Free People here) over an Out from Under triangle bodysuit, black TopShop cutoff shorts and my favorite desert Sole Society Behati Boots. Accessorized with a Sam Edelman Fringe Wristlet and a RumbaTime Gramercy Gem watch, Free People Salty Shores Wrap Choker & a Benevolence LA Water Droplet Necklace.
