This, in some ways, is a window to my soul: my book is open. This is an honest reflection where I embrace the highs and lows, ups and downs, roller coaster of emotions I am often riding, the good, the bad, and the extremely ugly...but this is me, and this is my adventure...By revealing myself honestly I hope to inspire and encourage, because we all struggle sometimes and it's nice to know we're not alone. This is my experience as a small town girl living in a big city, trying to make my way while taking lots and lots of detours...

During this "in between" time where I constantly feel like I am stuck in a rip-tide struggling to make it out alive and find smoother waters, I've realized that my priorities may be a little off. I'm so focused on trying to achieve/figure out/defy/accomplish that I haven't really thought about things that I want to do, not to "get ahead," but to be happy and to feel vital (I really like that word these days). I know I can't be in lala dream-land, but why can't I continue to dream and strive to check off some of my "life goals" right now?
So while it's on my mind, let's start that "Bucket-List." But instead of rushing to tick everything off during the last 10 years of my life, I think I'll start now...
1. Take cooking classes...(go big or go home)....in Paris!
- Become an excellent, creative, and innovative chef who can whip up something like this:

Another highlight is of course, the people watching...such a diverse crowd at this particular festival. There are the hippies (who are always fun to watch) families, older folks enjoying the blue grass, indie/pop people (like my description?) crowding the stage to see Bright Eyes perform, and those who just love a good festival! The beautiful sunny weather added to everyone's good mood as well. Hope the sun sticks around for October....looking forward to the next festival season!
