Start the Countdown

Do you know when you get so excited and you can't sit still? I feel like that right now. I am ready to start the countdown to a warm, tropical, beautiful vacation. I must tell you that this will not be any vacation, but my first time out of the country (minus that one time I went to Niagara Falls, before you needed passports). I just got my passport in the mail, and am feeling free. I can go anywhere I want.

This is also not like any other vacation, because it will be very secluded and I will be spending it with some very special people in my life. My amazing friends. Since I will be in 90 degree weather, I have decided to search for some easy pieces to pack in my backpack for the trip.

And I found this passport cover that I so desperately want. I feel that yellow would be easy to find in my bag, especially on days that I carry oversized purses.

Winter Whites

So, today was a beautiful day for antiquing, material shopping, and just being around. My roommate and I went to this great antique shop today around the corner from us and I found beautiful sheet music. I couldn't help but purchase a few to matte frame. You can check out the sheet music art at my shop.

The sun was shining, but as the day went on, the Rochester weather was coming back and it started to get bitter cold. Luckily we have not been having snow this winter, which is good and bad. I do love snow when I am cuddled up in front of a fire and not out in the cold air.

Walking Downtown

Some new, some old friends have been reintroducing me to the city I call home. It's silly how you can live somewhere for years and just never realize the places, the treasures, around you. I seem to get stuck in a groove where I simply forget that I should travel around the city, try new foods, try new activities, meet new people. I am so thankful for these friends, who have pulled me back out of my shell.

One of my favorite coffee shops around the city is Java's. It is a very artsy and sometimes a crowded place. I haven't been able to go very often, but I hope that changes. Today, it was perfect, because we were able to go in and get our delicious vanilla lattes and hit the side alley the take these pictures.

Next, I would love to make a trip next door to go to Eastman Theatre and see a show.

I love that this dress reminds me of a ballerina. I want so badly to go see a ballet.
