I’m moving to Phoenix and I’ll probably live here…

I visited Phoenix Arizona for the first time at the start of the summer and fell in love.  I didn’t even get to see the Grand Canyon and I loved it!  I loved the people, the weather, the culture, the weather, the weather…

When I say I’m moving there I don’t mean tomorrow (unless something majorly great happens) I mean in the near future and when I do, I’m probably going to get started in one of the White Stone Studios.  For whatever reason I’m slightly infatuated with people living in small spaces.  Maybe it’s the creativity that it takes to make a small space feel like a large home or the fact that living in a smaller space almost forces a more simplistic way of living more focused on the people and events that happen inside the house rather than the items that people tend to accumulate.  Whatever it is, I’m drawn to it.  I live in New York so I’m no stranger to small spaces.  My current apartment is just the right size (and price) for myself + 1 and I have to admit I love it.  Yes I’d love to have more room to fit more stuff, my own photography studio, an extra bedroom and bathroom for guests BUT do I really need it?

I’ve never lived in a studio but they seem to have this thing crafted and laid out exceptionally well.  The spaces seem open,  clean and come fully furnished.  They offer a private outdoor patio, deep soaking tub (important factor in my life), stainless steel appliances and a washer/dryer among other amenities that are all included in the $1,200/month rent.

Nope, I don’t have any affiliation with this place, nor did I take any of the photos or am I trying to sell anybody on Arizona (keep yall asses right where yall are) I’m just saying when you get the postcard from Phoenix, you’ll know where to find me, that is until I find my “forever home” out there.

Phoenix really was lovely, even if this picture doesn’t want to cooperate and post the right way!

6 months in, KEEP GOING!

Well, we are officially 6 months into the not so new year.  How are those resolutions going?  By now most people have forgotten about the promises, routines and goals that they set for themselves at the top of the new year.  I’m not into new year resolutions but I do believe in setting goals for myself, not just at the start of the year but throughout it.  Some plans might not go as planned and certain goals might take longer than others to attain but one thing that I’ve learned is to KEEP GOING.  Same goes for YOU.  Whatever you’ve been working hard for, goals that you’ve set, keep going, they will happen.  That new job that you’ve been searching for, house you’ve been saving up for, the project you’ve been working on, the class you wanted to take, TAKE IT, DO IT, AND KEEP GOING!  I’m convinced, life is easy, we make it hard.  Don’t make life harder than it has to be.  If there is something you want to do, do it, do your best and keep going.  Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from achieving your goals.  Stay positive and be thankful for everything that you have.  Start the next half of the year with positivity, love and watch the universe open its doors and provide.

P.S. Phoenix AZ is beautiful!
