Champagne Wishes

Another Monday down.  Work has been piling up lately but I try not to let that stress or bring me down.  At these moments, I just try to remember how hard I have worked to get to the position that I am at now.  I try to remember back to those days of camping out at the law school library or staying up almost all night studying for the bar exam.  It was a lot of hard work, so, I don't throw myself a pity party.  Instead, I try to remember back to the Maria that hoped and prayed would be right where I am right now...swamped drafting and prepping for hearings but secretly loving every minute.  Does anyone else have ways to get your mind off of stress?

Southern Prep

I am such a stinkin' hypocrite in this outfit.  See, the top portion makes you think it's actually fall whereas the bottom portion is a reminder that I live in Florida.  I'm one of those people that is always cold.  Cardigans and sweaters are a must for me.  Here's to hoping for a great week :-)

Grandfather Shirt

A couple years ago, my grandfather came from Puerto Rico to stay with my parents for a little while.  I was living in Jacksonville at the time but would come visit every weekend to spend time with him.  He used to wear a shirt, similar to the one I'm wearing, all the time to the point it got a hole in it.  He asked me to throw the shirt away since he couldn't wear it anymore but I must have gotten it mixed in with my laundry since I found it in my suitcase when I got back home.  He passed away shortly after but I never threw the shirt away and keep it on my blanket throw stand for safe keeping.  It's an odd memento to keep but warms my heart whenever I catch a glimpse of it.  Has anyone else kept odd mementos?

Sunny Evenings

These bright sunny evenings are throwing me for a loop lately.  After a long day at the office, I can't wait until I can get into my comfy pjs, throw a big blanket over me and either watch some tv or catch up with some blogs.  However, the sun shining so brightly through my windows makes me think that maybe I shouldn't start to wind down so early even though it's 7:00 p.m.  Then again, working the long hours then leaving work when it's still bright out has its perks.  I digress...

Nature Walks

I'm not the outdoorsy type but at the same time I am.  Does that make sense?  No, okay.  Well, I love the outdoors and admiring its beauty but only for so long.  This time of year, when the leaves are changing and the wind is cooler, I love being outdoors a little longer just to take it all in.

Lake Alice

I'm risking my life here people.  When I was little, my dad took my sisters and I out to Lake Alice to see the alligators.  I guess my sisters and I may have gotten a little too close to the water so my dad warned us that alligators are quick to snatch up little kids and eat them...scarred for life.  So when my husband kept telling me that he couldn't see my face to take a picture, ummm that's because someone has to keep an eye out for any alligators.  Jeesh.  As soon as I heard a little kid scream, "there's one!" I bolted.
