A few years ago, I unearthed a travel journal from a month-long trip to Europe that I took in 2006. As I reviewed its pages, I was struck by just how many details of the trip I had completely forgotten. And if the memories of a once-in-a lifetime trip that was so impactful to me could fade away – how much of my day-to-day life is lost? Sensations, emotions, achievements, losses, experiences from the mundane to the exceptional, all transforming from that specific moment in time to become that day, that week, that year, that life…

As I get older and gain a better understanding of how fragile, how brief, and how precious life really is, it's become even more important to me to me experience it to its fullest and to try to retain all of those little moments that might otherwise get lost. It's with this idea that I started the process of recording these moments – a travel journal, of sorts.

A travel journal for life.

HELLO NEW SHOES, BYE-BYE THEM BLUES

Electric Blue Suede Cork Heels = Happy.
Sometimes, life is really stressful.  Sometimes, it's really easy to get bogged down.  Sometimes, I'm very thankful that little things make me super happy. 

I bought new shoes this past weekend - new shoes that I had completely forgotten about until they were unearthed from the pile of laundry that I'm working on tonight.

For now, the blues of the week are forgotten as I dance around in my new shoes, doing laundry, and listening to this song on repeat.
