…makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mind /
Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom /
July is dressed up and playing her tune…”

Thinking Out Loud

I have vivid dreams, which I always want to discuss in the morning but (a) my husband is at work/getting ready for work or (b) my husband is home but he is focused on real life and my subconscious be dammed!

My last dream featured a Ferris Wheel. Ironically, my hubby works at the High Roller in Las Vegas otherwise known as that big wheel on the strip. Some say Ferris Wheels symbolize getting nowhere in life or the ups and downs of life. My husband dislikes his job because of poor management while I dislike my work because it’s so boring. Time for a change? ūüí°

Good Vibes

If you can’t take a vacation at the moment, and you have access to a pool, I highly recommend taking a dip. Imagine the cool water surrounding your body as it momentarily makes you forget it’s hot AF. Don’t forget your sunscreen and a sunhat to protect your gorgeous face!

My sunhat is by JUMO and Soleil comes with a surprise, a hud to change from tan to white and text varying from ‘bride to be’ to ‘beach babe.” You’ll find it at Designer Showcase’s June Round! Click here for your lift.

Santa Cruz

I’m in desperate need of a vacation. I’ll be going back home to Albuquerque next month, which is awesome because I love my fam and miss them! Would I like to take some vacation days somewhere else? YES. Since RL me needs to use my PTO on my family, SL me is a total jet setter.
