Sometimes when you're feeling a little blue, the best thing to do is to put on a pretty dress, a gorgeous piece of jewelry (or headband in my case) and take yourself out on the town.
The past few days I have been feeling a little down. I've mostly been by myself (other than family members) since I've been in Colorado, and find myself being homesick for my love (t-minus 11 days until we're together again!!), family, friends, and hometown stomping grounds. So since I don't enjoy feeling down (who does really?), I decided to turn my frown upside down and go on a walk and coffee date in downtown Glenwood Springs.
During my walk I headed down a little alley that had the most quaint, old downtown kind of feel. I just loved all of the old brick, red doors and window frames, and all the charm the alley gave off. In Phoenix the allies really aren't the prettiest (I'm really not sure if they are anywhere), so I enjoyed taking a quiet walk through this one.
During my outing I wore my new Moorea Seal gypsy crown the first time. I just love the gold chain, pretty ribbon, and the way it contrasts with my hair. I am more than impressed with it, and would high suggest any of Moorea's pieces to anyone. She's also the sweetest lady, and her blog is one of my daily reads.
This week I've been filling my ears with new music (why oh why did it take me so long to by The Valley by Eisley?), sipping iced coffees from local coffee shops (they have two darling ones in Delta, CO, where I'm currently at), and dreaming about the fall season already. This fall brings on a whole new chapter in my educational career, and I can't wait to start and see how it goes!
What do you like to do when you're feeling a little blue? What are you most looking forward to this summer?
