Can you believe it's almost August? (I can't wait till it actually is.) Where has all the time gone? But I'm excited to say.. the Benefit Concert is in a few weeks!! (Come join!) Months of planning and organizing definitely pays off. I'm also super stoked to see my Cali boys :) As some of you already know, Frank aka Ice1cube and Kevin Lien will be in town for the concert. What did I tell you about our all-star line up?
My trip is also slowly creeping up on me. We've finally gotten most of our trip schedule planned out, just need some minor finalizing. I'm glad it's in September, and that I'll be going with Fiona, Pablo and Paul. It'll be a good time of fellowship (A very much extended one), good eats, and just time to discover new places, cultures and enjoy what the rest of the world has to offer. With that being said, a lot of my friends and family members have been saying I'm so lucky to be able to travel and take time off work just for this.
I recently talked to my dad about my trip, and he mentioned how there's a huge difference between being lucky, and being blessed.. and asked which one I would rather be? Brings me to the fact that I've always envied my cousin who is fairly well off, and has the life that most women would want. However the more I thought about it.. I realized I wouldn't want to be in her shoes. You know how we're always saying so and so's so lucky.. and most of the time it's because they have things we want, or wished we had? If you ever find yourself asking that, look and count the blessings in your life. Because I for one.. would rather be blessed, than lucky. Oh how I love the random conversations I have with my dad. As I grow older.. I learn to appreciate conversations like these even more.
Back to the trip talk. Have you seen my inventory list? Haha yes you can call me crazy, but I call it being organized! Although.. I have a feeling I'll be living in my denim cut-offs, pocket tanks and flip flops most of the time. The heat will be too hot to handle! But.. I think I could all use some sun after the lack of sunshine in Vancouver this Summer. Alright I think I'll end things here. Whistler-bound this weekend. So until next time! Love, T.
P.S What do you guys have planned for the rest of the Summer? Do share! I'd love to know :)
