Heaven On A Harley

Earlier this summer I decided to take action to fulfill a childhood dream. One that was highly frowned up by family and friends (and I understand why), but it's something I've always dreamed about and wanted before I ever decided to have children (also...no I'm not pregnant). You've probably figured out by now that this dream I had was to own my very own motorcycle! And it's crazy I've actually done it. It surprisingly came very naturally to me, I think only because my first car was a stick shift. But none the less it was still scary. Scary because of other drivers, scary 'cause I've never done this before, it was just scary. I thought a few times "OMG, should I have done this?" and it was intimidating to move into a culture that seems to be so male dominated. But I wasn't and never will let the fear of the unknown dictate my future. I have never lived that way, so I wasn't going to let fear creep in now! And after months passing I've become more comfortable riding and I have the feeling of freedom found on a bike that I've always dreamed of. I have this space with the bike, the road and wind where I'm by myself letting go of a stress-filled day and just riding.
It's place I've found where I can just BE. It's become this sanctuary where I process, talk and dream and dream bigger world changing dreams with God. So I guess you could say I've found a little piece of Heaven on my Harley. :)

Enchanted

This sheer top from Zara has got me feeling all sorts of enchanted! It subtly shows the body in an interesting way that one wouldn't expect; and the color and placement of the embroidered flowers gives the perfect feminine touch. I love that this year has been full of embroidered details, it looks good on basically everything! 
I've got embroidery on my Gucci loafers (they are proper grandma slippers for sure👌🏽) and my husband even has it on his shirts, beanies and his slip-ons. My mum asked if he was trying to be like me...I'd say maybe a little bit!

The Little Pink Dog

In honor of Junie B.'s 16th birthday (April 28th) my little sisters and I decided to give Junie a fresh new-do by giving her a beet juice bath. Yes that little dog below is 16 believe it or not, so that makes her old af...haha 112 in dog years! 
She's the furry little sister we used to dress up and walk around the neighborhood in a stroller, have dance parties with, swaddle in blankets, our little cuddle buddy and we'd have to clean up her poop when she got into a tin of Hersey kisses from Valentines day. 
I can't imagine life without her. I still remember picking her up from the breeder and thinking she was the cutest one because she was the runt of the litter and had unique little spots of apricot on her ears and back. Now that she is pastel pink I'm even more in love with her and I think it put a little pep in her step! Haha who really knows if she is aware she is pink, all I know is she seems to be acting more like her old puppy self again!

Cheers to another year little Junie B.
I love you!
