it doesn't matter

It doesn't matter how many friends you have
But rather, who you have in your life that counts.

I happen to surround myself with lovely people, who send me special deliveries, such as these beautiufl roses.

 It doesn't matter if you are 20 years old and would rather stay in and read a book, sip on some tea, and nibble on dark chocolate, than go out and party every night.
What matters is that you are doing what you love, for you.

It doesn't matter if you live at the top of a building near the helicopter landing deck...unless you're trying to fall asleep.
What matters most is that you enjoy the view and appreciate the fact that you will always have a special robot friend watching out for you throughout the night.

Enjoy what you have in front of you.  I know I am.

donuts > birthday cake

happy birthday to me
happy birthday to me
happy birthday dear Euniece
happy birthday to me

Today is my life anniversary as my dear yogi friend put it in such a lovely way.  I am officially a twenty year old, where have the teen years gone?! And to make time fly even faster, I am already back at Pitt going into my junior year, getting into my routine, and am already finding cute little food shops on day one - with the help of my mom of course!!

Today while meandering around campus we stumbled upon this cute little shop - and with a name like 'Peace, Love and Little Donuts' I immediately had to go in.   It was the cutest donut shop I have ever seen; and I am not saying this because I am a donut lover, oh no, no no...because to be honest...
1. Donuts don't fill me up - so I never understood eating them for breakfast
2. & if I am going to eat a sweet dessert, there is no way I would ever choose a donut over a brownie, come on this is not even a fair contest!
So for me donuts have always been pretty mute in my life,  until today.
 Trust me when I say, these donuts were good  incredible, they had sweet and savory, everything and anything to satisfy your cravings from smores, to apple pie, even maple bacon, you could even create your own!! I ended up going with the tree hugger granola and chocolate coconut!

While my 20th birthday wasn't filled with fireworks nor was there a Range Rover wrapped up in a red bow, none of that mattered - because for some reason, as you get older birthdays tend to revolve less around materialistic things and more around what really matters. I spent the day with my family, eating delish food, and enjoying the outdoors, and for me, that was plenty enough.
Now for the best year to come!

what goes around comes back around - especially in fashion
fact: you can not hum if you  hold your nose closed
fact: i tried the above fact at work today and sounded like a frog
fact: the above automatically made me the coolest intern at work
fact: im the only intern at my company...
fact: i'm loving the seventies fall fashion vibe in Forever 
fact: i broke my "i'm not spending money on clothes, and only spending money on memories and trips" rule, last week :(
fact: i'm not ashamed - it was totally worth it

 if only my mother would have save all of her corduroy threads from her teen years..

fact: i'm only 5'2 - so I hear a pair of Platforms calling my name this fall : )

All that matters...

I like homemade fresh strawberry margaritas.
They taste especially good while on vacation with no work the next day.
So since I was at the Lake House this weekend, I had one, or two.
If I had to choose between a lake house or a beach house, the decision would be a no brainer.
Lake House
-for the obvious reasons-
You can run through trails, without melting in the sun
Opening your eyes under water won't make you feel like your cornea is on fire
Clouds in the sky ruining your tanning exposure do not matter since you are way too busy tubing, jet skiing, kayaking etc.
Bonfires & Smores. Enough Said.
Bed  head is quickly fixed by a quick dip in the water
You can enjoy the crisp morning air of the forest around you when sipping your blueberry coffee in the morning 
You won't run into any massive waves while Kayaking
You can ride the "Hot Dog" without a shark thinking you are a seal from below the water
But no matter where you are - lake or beach, what counts is who you are there with, because when you are there with the ones you love, that's all that matters.

btw blog loves, my post with waterfall pictures was at a place called Glen Onoko : )

beach or lake
Which do you prefer?
