The Future is Bright, Invest in Sunglasses

The past two weeks were an opportunity for me to leave town (and spend time with the now eight-month old, two-toothed wonder named Paisley, as seen below), recharge my batteries (sometimes in the form of retail therapy), bask in the glory of successfully completing my graduate studies (and by bask I mean sleep late), and gear up for the next chapter in my life. As I embark upon the newest phase of my life, the life of a post-graduate career woman, I’m reminded that the most important role I will ever truly play in life is that of my own biggest cheerleader.

Paisley opted for a stylish pair of heart-framed shades.

As a self-proclaimed creature of habit, I must admit that my current career pursuit has required me to embrace the unknown. I’ve adopted the notion that opportunity is always to be sought and celebrated, hard work will never be outdated or overlooked, and a good, enthusiastic and sincere attitude should and will be a daily fixture in my life.

For those in need of a pep talk, I challenge you to look inward and invest in a good pair of sunglasses. Good things are ahead!

“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

After a long (and I mean looooooooong) day of catching up on all things graduate school and job hunting, I stumbled upon exactly what I needed to inspire me.

Audrey Hannah, a Denver-based photographer, is responsible for the works of art seen below. Having taken a few photography classes of my own, I can’t begin to explain how exquisite her work is. It’s so beautiful it’s almost disgusting how talented she is.

Her blog is extremely well organized and viewer-friendly, so check that out also.

I hope these pictures evoke in others what they did in me: a weightless sense of hope and whimsy.
