a miami tale.





the past hour has sent this day in a downhill spiral, but i know that days like this just happen. i was exiting a parking garage in coconut grove after a lovely and relaxing hour and a half yoga class, and i was unaware that my two hour parking limit was up. the grumpy man in the parking garage told me i owed $1.50, and i explained to him nicely that i had no cash and asked if i could return tomorrow to bring some, or if he could let me slide on this one occasion. he said no, and insisted that i take out money from the ATM that charges a $3 charge for a $1.50 payment. but.. so is life. so i placed my phone in the cup holder of my car and took the money out.

little did i know, the styrofoam cup from my iced coffee earlier had broken and the coffee drowned my phone to its death. :( so, i am currently phoneless. these tiny blips in life-- it is so difficult to not let them kill your spirit. i had such a beautiful day (it was someones birthday in our office & we had cake, i did yoga next to one of my favorite girlfriends, tomorrow is friday) but when your overpriced piece of technology that 2/3 of your life depends on breaks, it is so hard to remember all of the happiness that the day was filled with. in the end i guess that is why money is money and happiness is happiness, and sometimes you just need to spend the money to fix the problem and remember that life is beautiful, and in the end your unfortunate luck will equal itself out. goodnight loves.

if we're going to go for a sunset ride on a sailboat, i guess i have to wear a nautical style outfit ?! :) our friend works on a sailboat in key west and invited us. it was just lovely-- sipping red wine as the sun went down. i am still figuring out my new haircut, but realized i can still wear a beehive! it is actually quite easy to pin it up in the back and wear the bangs. does anyone with short hair out there have any styling ideas/tips? share away! have a lovely day. xo
