LAST NIGHT IN VENICE

This night is incredibly bittersweet. We’re going out to celebrate my birthday at my fiancé’s restaurant, Hatchet Hall, and it’s our last night in Venice. I find myself reflecting on where we’ve called home for the last 8 years, Venice. We ran around like crazy kids, crashed our bikes into bushes cruising home late night, raged at random house parties, met some of the best people/family ever, and lived like happy little beach bums. We can never re-create what this time has been. Nor will Venice ever be the same. We lived here during a very magical time. It’s sad to see the big corporations and giant box houses tear down and take over the character and charm of what was the cutest, grimiest, and most magical little beach town. Now it’s time to grow up a bit more, and move out of our comfort zone. We bought our first house in the cutest little neighborhood of Spanish Bungalows in Long Beach, California. So tomorrow we move. So sad to go, but it’s time:)

On to bigger and better things!

You're probably spending a lot more time at home lately.  Your home or apartment might be doubling as your office, classroom, playroom, gym and more. Those walls might be starting to majorly close in, I know mine are!  After living in our home for over two years, I still feel like I haven't unpacked.  Half of my clothes and shoes are still in the garage, my drawers have been bursting at the seams, and our closets are so tiny I can't make of sense of where to put anything.  So add all of that added chaos on top of clutter and disorganization, and that's a recipe for some major stress.
I decided to start with decluttering and organizing my drawers.

11:11.  So what does it mean anyway?  Well, for what seems like forever now, I've been seeing 11:11 pretty much on every day.  And yes, I've known that it's a good omen and that if you see it, it’s a sign from the Universe that you’re on the right path.  So, naturally, I became obsessed.  However, I never knew all of the magical hidden meanings behind this auspicious number.
