Don't Lose Out

I know you’ve heard the cliché saying, “Life is what you make it”. I’ve heard it numerous times, and lately I’ve been really putting some thought into its meaning. We’ve each been given the gift of life, and with that gift we have the free will to essentially design our destinies and follow our heart’s bliss. Yet so many people don’t. So many people settle for average.

NY From the Sky

In the same trip from my last post, I also got some great pictures of NY from the sky! Enjoy! 

*Time Square*

Just Above The Clouds

I recently took a trip to Jersey, and on the day I was leaving Chicago the weather was gray, cloudy and rainy but just above the clouds there was a beautiful horizon. It was such a great reminder for me that no matter how gray a situation may seem, there is always sunshine to be found! I hope you enjoy the pics of the horizon and the peaceful clouds!

You Don't Have to be Great

This quote speaks volumes for me. It's a daily reminder of how important it is to not allow your want for perfection to inhibit you from even getting started. Appreciate the journey and remember that even the smallest effort is progression. 

"You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great" - Zig Zagler


Being true to our foodie senses, GaV and I set out for a new lunch place yesterday. We randomly stumbled upon the restaurant Fresh Bar and it more than satisfied our taste buds! Definitely a good lunch find :) 

Love Ravioli and the asparagus made it that much better! 

GaVin's sandwich was amazing. So much flavor!

"If Relationship is Effort... I Will Match Your Work"

Relationships aren't easy - period. Let's be honest, in considering your dating history have you ever had a relationship with someone in which you felt like EVERYTHING was perfect (in the literal sense of the word... meaning free of any flaw)? Have you ever been with someone and felt like there was nothing either one of you could do to make it any more better than what it already was?
If you are single, and you answered yes - then please ask yourself why you are single (because clearly you missed your boat lol).  If you are currently in a relationship, and you answered yes - then hopefully the person you have that "free of any flaw" relationship with - is the person you are currently committed to.
