joy by megan

I have recently been doing a lot of thinking about what makes me happy…what brings me joy. There are so many ways to answer that. God has blessed me with so much, and I am not one to sit around and let things go to waste. Questions about my life/career/future after I graduate with an Early Childhood degree in May 2010 have been popping into my head lately, and I do not know the answers to any of them. But the awesome thing is that God has the answers, and he is praying for me…he’s praying for you, too ๐Ÿ™‚

But, I do know that if I want to accomplish anything I simply can not rely on my faith on alone…I need to use the creativity & determination God gave me. Dreaming and pondering a career in fashion has been on my mind for the past 2 weeks…opening the boutique I’ve been wanting, writing about fashion (ie. a blog), or even working downtown at Saks Fifth Avenue for a little while. Those are all careers I dream of…I don’t dream of teaching. Is that terribly not right since I have spent so many years in school studying how to become a teacher?

I don’t know! I just know that I want to wake up every morning so excited to go to work…to do my job with a smile on my face.

Until then, until everything is figured out, I am going to continue working hard on my education degree, studying for the big teacher certification test coming up, and working on my field portfolios. I am going to continue feeling joyful for this life, waking up to read my bible each morning, serving my church, allowing God to have control, enjoying the fall season (apples!!!), and loving my friends & family.

The fall semester is almost over…lots to do in preparation for it. And, hopefully, my dreams will become realistic and some more writing will appear on this little blog…fashion writing…we shall see!

Happy Thursday…hope your week has been full of JOY!

p.s. thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚


monday musings by megan

Happy Monday, pies! I just love Monday’s. It’s the beginning of a new week. A fresh start. I love embracing that thought.

I had the strangest thing happen to me this morning. Okay, so yesterday my lovely friend called and invited me over to her house to play cards tonight, or so I thought it was tonight. On the way home from the gym this morning I had a strange feeling that I misunderstood the invite…and called my friend up. Turns out the invite was for last night as in Sunday night, not Monday night like I thought! We had a good laugh about the mix-up!ย  Has this ever happened to y’all?

I have been on the lookout for a new coffe travel mug and yesterday at Starbucks I stumbled upon their new African inspired line. And, I bought this little gem

IMG_7643I love the colors and the fact that it is a real piece of hand crafted African fabric under the plastic covering. It’s just beautiful to me. I can’t wait to use it!

I browsed through half of the September Lucky this morning. I adore the thickness of the September issues. It makes me very happy.

IMG_7644I like to take my time reading Lucky. I usually browse it at the gym and then when I am comfortable at home I study it and then litter it with my “Yes!” and “Maybe” tabs. So far my favorite page in this issue is this:

IMG_7646I love the look of mixing floral prints. I will be brave this fall and venture into the world of mixed prints.

I’m reading the book of Daniel this week. If anyone wants to join me.

It is very hot, humid, and sunny down here today…with rain to come. I hope y’all are staying cool and dry where ever you may be.

I hope y’all enjoy your day to the fullest!
