Blossoming | Again

Hey loves! Spring is coming, the temperatures are warming up, and I'm finally feeling more like myself again. I will always love Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, but a part of me feels like I'm truly meant to live in warmer climates like California or Hawaii, where the colors are brighter, the personalities are warmer, and the fabrics are less restricting. 

The early bloom of the cherry blossoms inspired me to wear these baby pink jeggings I picked up last month, from American Eagle. (Psst!* They're currently on sale here) You may have noticed by now, that I never did a Valentine's Day lookbook, but I did wear these jeggings on Valentine's Day, otherwise known as Singles Awareness Day for me lol.

This is a blog about my life and I would like to be as transparent with you guys as possible, but sometimes you debate with yourself on what you're ready to share, and what you're not ready to share yet. I'm not going to go into too much detail, but if you've been following me for awhile, you know that I ended a pretty serious relationship almost 2 years ago. Since then I've kept myself occupied with school and work, and that's worked out pretty well for me, academically. It's just now, I feel like I'm finally ready to kind of dip my feet in the waters, wade around, and see what kind of fish are out there.

When you have this whole plan of how you're going to spend the rest of your life with someone, and that get's shatter, you really question afterwards, what you want anymore. And of course, this is not an easy topic for me to discuss publicly, but the thing that keeps me sharing writing, is knowing that somewhere out there, another girl is going through the same thing & I believe girls should help each other out.  

Something that was really helpful for me (another book, yes), was reading "It's Just a F***king Date", " by Greg Gehrendt & Amiira Ruotola. As lame as it may appear, the book has really gotten me to open up to the idea of "modern" dating, and to be more fearless. Of course, no woman needs a man, but I've always been a hopeless romantic, and I think i'm just going to leave it at that for today. :) I hope you're doing well! I'll catch you guys next time. Keep dreaming, believing, loving, and slaying! - JEN
