My sweet Aunt Paule offered Brian and I her beach cottage in Santa Barbara this weekend while she and her partner David are on a retreat. Considering we aren’t ones to shy away from mini vacay’s (especially when they are free) we are off to Santa Barbara for a few days!
I happen to love their little cottage by the sea. It’s the perfect place to cozy up, write (I really need to rethink my book proposal), read (my new book “Wild” for inspiration), sleep (I’m a fan of sleeping sans alarm clock), watch movies (or maybe continue watching episodes of Breaking Bad) and cuddle (I’m a fan of cuddling too). I also want to take long walks on the beach and drinking margarita’s at the local Mexican joint.
On another note- I made some progress with my goals this week!
I made a list of a few new “artist dates” to take myself on…i’m scheduling these once a week.
– rent 5 Best Picture films that I have never seen and spend the day watching them
– create a new vision board (these visions of mine need a new board!)
– Downtown LA museum day
– head to the library to check out books on a subject I know very little about
– take myself on a picnic
Second I played a truly fun game of phone tag with a woman named Noelle at the Big Brother Big Sister organization about volunteering as a Big Sister. We still have not actually spoken but I have high hopes we will next week. High hopes.
I “thought” about what changes I want to make to my book proposal. That counts for something, right?
I chased down a man and his adorable French Bulldog on the street to ask which breeder he went to.
I spent hours looking at beautiful photos of ballerina’s for inspiration for my upcoming “back to the barre” series ( I plan on posting them tomorrow)
OH AND I BOOKED A TRIP TO NEPAL! That still happens to be the most exciting update of the week.
What happened with you guys this week? Any fun things to share????
