July blessed me with a sweet and creative roommate. She spent the first few months decorating and ordering fun things for her room and the rest of the apartment. Now our place has so much charm and character! Then I realized how stark my room is in comparison. I mean I have the bare minimum; bed with a beautiful headboard, one nightstand, chest of drawers and a tall chest. Everything is mismatched with no flow or aesthetic.

Probably because this is the longest place I’ve lived and it’s been four and a half years.
Monday nights are typically one of my self-love nights. This includes a face scrub and mask along with a glass of wine if I have any leftover from the weekend. It’s a fresh start to the week and I love taking the time to love myself. I did this last night minus the wine and for whatever reason I started cleaning my bathroom and organizing the hallway storage closet as my scrub and mask dried. Actually, I know the reason. I have a hard time relaxing and doing nothing. I get anxious thinking of the things I need to do, so I keep myself busy.

A few months ago, I dropped Milo off at the vet for the real deal dental cleaning. I avoided this procedure as long as I could because I knew how hard it is on dogs to go under anesthesia.

Plus, they still had plaque near the gums after the regular, non-anesthesia cleaning. What I wasn’t expecting was the call from the vet, a few hours after dropping him off, saying he needed ten teeth pulled. Yikes! Anxiety started kicking in right away and I was completely unaware.

Last year marked my fabulous 30th birthday. I truly feel comfortable and love myself more than ever before. There is truth that wisdom and confidence come with age and experience. And I believe there is always room for improvement.
