Sunshine and Daisies

Am I ever happy it's Monday and it's a new week! Last week was
probably one of the most stressful weeks I've had in a while - that's
saying something too considering I moved across my country less than
two months ago...So how does one combat stress? Go to the beach!
I pretty much lived at the beach this weekend. Saturday was my town's
beach day and, well, Sunday is just a perfect day for the beach, isn't it?
If only life could always be sunshine, happiness, and flowers in my hair!
I'm really trying to come to terms with the fact that life can't always be
sunshine and daisies. I had a fairly sad and difficult life growing up and
I used to think that all the sadness would come to screeching halt once I
grew up and could control my own life. So not true. Life contains all the
emotions. Life contains sadness and anger and desperation and elated
happiness. All one can do is be the best person they can be and learn
to not sweat the small things.  That and put a flower in your hair! 


  1. Aw, I hope you're able to keep your mind occupied to ease the sadness. Yes, it's true, it never quite goes away--but there are ways to cope with it, and I'm glad you're seeking those options out. Anyone who says life is only sunshine and roses is probably not a real person. Hugs from me to you!

    Anyway, I definitely sang "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine" in my head upon viewing this pictures. You are a gem! <3

  2. Mmmm, sadness never fully goes away. It's a part of the beautiful and terrifying range of emotion that humans experience. There are moments of grief, and moments of joy. I hope your joy starts to outnumber your sadness though! <3
    But yes, the stick a flower in your hair is always a good coping mechanism. You can't help but smile with that :)

  3. You are my true inspiration! This hairdo is lovely. And lucky you to have so much from a beach-life! :)

  4. It is definitely hard to deal with things in times of stress or sadness but your advice is very good- look on the brighter side, put a flower in your hair.

    On a sartorial note, everything in this outfit comes together perfectly.
