One year ago today I was headed to the airport and embarking on an amazing, life changing adventure in Edinburgh Scotland. It feels like only yesterday and yet forever ago. Time is such a funky thing. I miss this place so much, I was scared that with every passing day I would miss it a little bit less, but I think that no matter how many years go by, Edinburgh will always be like a home in which I will always be homesick (until I return again). Always ALWAYS pursue your dreams and do the thing that scares you most. I was absolutely TERRIFIED to leave home for so long all on my own but it has been the best decision in my entire life. There is nothing I regret.

Transformation Tuesday: as seen through old repurposed factory buildings. I love how you can see the details of how this building has changed through the decades.

Gotta love good architecture and a sexy museum. @nationalmuseumsscotland is a gorgeous museum that anyone visiting Edinburgh needs to go check out. I miss this place so much- I miss everything about Edinburgh.

I’ve really been struggling with anxiety and depression lately. I had always considered myself a person who is in touch with their emotions but really I try so hard to convince myself I’m okay. I had a low-lying anxiety attack for two hours the other day and I spent most of it telling myself I was fine. I’m learning that it’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to have rough periods and to cry or freak out. Most importantly it’s okay to lean on the people in your life. You are never alone, despite all the feelings and thoughts in your head that tell you otherwise.

Happy Friday!! Thinking about changing things up again.... I’m in such a transitional period of my life, I’m really trying to figure out what I like and what I don’t like. What has been your experience with transitioning from one thing to another? How do you know what to carry with you to the next chapter of your life and what to shed?
