{30x30 pt7} Uncertainities and a Glass of Red Wine

Life is full of uncertainties which can be exciting at times at daunting at others.  Today life's uncertainities took on a daunting form and I was filled with anxiety.  A few weeks ago I posted about being at a crossroads and I am still facing it.  Sometimes I wish I could fast-forward a few years until I have it all figured out.  But maybe I will always be on the search for the next best thing.  It's nice to date an older man because he gives me perspective and insight and he also knows when I need to spend the evening drinking red wine and watching Glee.  Which is exactly what we did tonight!

Looking for a great pair of earrings to brighten up your winter wardrobe? Then head on over to Fashion Steele NYC where Monroe  is having a fab giveway!


  1. It seems as if I am always having some sort of a dilemma lately. All you can do is take everything day by day and it will all work out. Or at least that is what I have come to believe. Your bf sounds like a great and understanding guy!

  2. Glee...brings happiness to every day!

  3. Great color on you and when doesn't Glee make a girl feel good? Great way to spend the evening.

  4. Talk to me Sweetie, what is this crossroads that you are faced with?

    Ah, red wine and Big Bang does it for me!

    p.s. how can you look this put together in February?

  5. I'm kind of in love with crossroads - even the daunting ones. It means something is happening, and usually for the better. I know change is scary, but just trust you'll make the right decision. In the meantime, wine and Glee can do wonders. : )

    LOVE the nails! Fun nail polish is the best. And I love the color of your top. So pretty.


  6. At quick glance I thought your purse was a skirt! A mermaid skirt. How fun would that be? I watched Glee for the first time last night! I knew I'd love it because I love to sing and dance. That may be why I hadn't started watching it. Not enough time for TV when my blog envelopes my life :D

  7. I love the outfit, and your nail color. I know what your saying. I wish I could ave my job, and life sorted out. But, half the fun is getting there.

  12. Hey there,
    I see you found your way to my blog!
    By the way, I adore that necklace. :)

  13. beautiful necklace, love your shoes, and i've never seen glee, but the main lady on it (what's her name again?) is hilarious so i'd probably like it. oh, and the color of your shirt? one of my favorites. good luck figuring it all out in life...make sure you enjoy the journey of the figuring!

  14. I totally understand how you're feeling here! I think we all face those uncertainties no matter what stage we're at in our life. Like you said, I often find myself wanting to hit fast-forward until I "have it all figured out". I'm trying hard lately to remind myself that it's always going to be life and the future is always a question mark. Remembering to live in (and enjoy!) the present is a hard lesson sometimes, I think... I agree that red wine and the boy you love definitely help with that. What better way to live in the present? :)

    You look great, girl! Love the necklace and your purse. Thanks for reminding me that I'm not alone in feeling this way sometimes.

    xoxo, Amanda

  15. @Ramsey, Erin, Jen- Glee is super addictive and makes we want to become a singer! @3 Stinky Boys, Lee, My Heart Blogged- the nail polish is Butter by Joe Fresh (Canadian- super affordable!) @Whitney, Linda- my bf is such a sweetie- we always have great date night ins! @20YS- I was only this put together because I had a job interview! Patty, Marie-Eve, Daisy May, Bree &Brittney- I never thought I could wear this colour but as a redhead it's a fun contrast! @Amanda-I love what you said about the future being a question mark- it's scary but also exciting! Thanks for sharing- it can be lonely sometimes waiting for what's next!


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
