Beautiful Cesky Krumlove

Just a few hours away from Prague... Feels like you're in a fairy tale!

Boo! It's our first day here and it's raining like crazy! Oh well... Time to make the most of it!

Gorgeous sunset in Fethiye

Went paragliding over the Turkish coast today. Absolutely mind blowing experience. I'd recommend it to anyone!!


That's all volcanic rock! It was 88 degrees!

At the airport!

The Sunday Six

Obviously a day late, but figured it kind of counts since this is a holiday weekend.

The six things that have me loving life this week:

1.  Signed the lease on a beautiful new apartment that I'll be moving into next month.
2.  My parents graciously offered to get me a new car as a congratulations gift of sorts for starting my new career.
3.  Confirmed that I'll be working on DREAM Act applications for several months as pro bono work... could not be more excited to start.  The people I'll be working with seem really intelligent and passionate about their work, which is huge.
4.  In less than 12 hours, I'll be on a nonstop flight to Turkey, and I'll be spending my next three weeks in Turkey, the Czech Republic, and Germany.
5.  Having the free time to finally get caught up on my fashion magazines and to enjoy reading just for the sake of reading again.
6.  My amazing friends and family who are always there to help celebrate the ups and downs of my life.  


I've decided to seriously start investing some time into blogging now.

I've said this to myself on several occasions, but I think the timing couldn't be any better at this point.  I am finally seriously settling down into my first grown-up apartment (where I won't have any roommates and I'll be in charge of all the decor) and I've finally finished my graduate degree and will be starting my career.  Also, I was in great shape at the end of last year, but I've gradually gained about 15 pounds as the stresses of wrapping up my final semester of law school and studying for the bar took their toll.  I'm determined to lose the weight and to find a healthy way to balance a healthy lifestyle with a stressful life.

My blog is going to be mostly musings about my life as I embark on this new chapter, my efforts to furnish my new apartment, random beauty and fashion purchases, and a little Sunday feature that I've decided to title The Sunday Six.  The Sunday Six will just be six things that I'm grateful for each week - it's so easy to get caught up in life that it's important to remind yourself constantly of all the wonderful things in life that you're grateful for.

I'm leaving for Turkey, the Czech Republic, and Germany for three weeks today!  I'll be updating soon with photos!
