SO, I contemplated embarrassingly ignoring the fact that it's been almost 2 entire months since my last post. But then again, it's such a "blogger" thing to do, isn't it? To make some kind of shocking remark about how long of a hiatus you've been on and then commence the slew of excuses as to why you've been so absent - the whole "life happened" situation. We've all read it before, so... I'll skip over that and jump right into today's ACTUAL post.

Not sure why, but I happened to stumble across my old Tumblr account the other day. (I honestly didn't even remember I had one!) And, let's just say, some of my re-blogs and notes where just, well, slightly "wtf" worthy. 

I started thinking about how time really does pass by in a way that we just don't feel or see on a day-to-day basis, but when something is recorded (in writing or pictures) it REALLY shines a light on how much things change.

I found myself spending (and it's really hard for me not to replace that word with wasting) hours looking through my old Tumblr. Seeing the things I used to think were cool, stylish, interesting, funny, etc. sort of had me on the edge of my seat. I laughed, I cringed, I (almost) cried, and then it hit me... I want to start documenting my interests more regularly. It's 100% selfish and I highly doubt anybody reading this even cares an ounce of what I think is "cool" every week/month... but that's the beauty about a blog: it's also a personal diary. And I am whole-heartedly and unashamedly going to be posting things that I know I'll love to look back on years down the road! (And possibly cringe over, ha!)

E N T E R : my idea of a series I'll call "Monday Mood : A Curation of Inspiration"

I have created my first board for today and I must say it was almost like a breath of fresh air slash therapeutic. Searching through hundreds of stunning travel photography, beautiful models, stylish outfits, perfectly put-together homes, and delicious foods had me like ::heart eye emoji:: It seemed to lift me off my computer chair and put my imagination on little mini vacations as my eyes scrolled over each little box of visual inspiration. (I suppose it helps that my monitor is massive!) It's a quick step away from reality. I admit some of these images are undoubtedly staged (we all know social media is all smoke & mirrors!), but at the end of the day - everyone loves to look at beautiful things! 

Hopefully this series will give you some type of inspiration, motivation, or simply offer you something nice to look at for a few minutes.
