january new things

Lots of news to share… this month is setting the tone for how the rest of this year is going to feel… I think… with this whole something new each month, I start with January… and that being… I quit my job. Now when I first say that, it sounds so spur-of-the-moment and maybe not well thought out but I assure you, it has been… well planned. Sometimes I have to remind myself that too but I am so ready and so excited for new things to come. Sometimes, in a job, you have to decide to move on and be ready to find the next great thing. I am ready. February 10th will be my last day and then guess what? Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras. Then some relaxing, more blogging and some travelling and then some new job finding. Sometimes you just have to take time to regroup, be a better you and find something new.

In other news, I started an Instagram! However, I don’t actually have an i-phone so I’m loading them to my i-pad and updating from there. I don’t entirely get it all yet but it’s fun and I love editing my pictures in these tones… so um, follow me? @islandialane …is that how it works? Also I’ve been decorating my new apt {new since June 2011} finally. Painting some, getting things framed, getting the right furniture and setting up my closet. Trying to make it all fit in my simple little studio. Maybe a home post coming on soon... I’ve never done one of those, another something new and something fun.
Here’s to a happy week!

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
