Visions of Sugarplums

Recently, I’ve been thinking quite a lot about life lists, goals, dreams, Oreos. Partially because I’ve been working on my own 415 to 415 to do list. And partially because I’m going to watch Maggie achieve one of her life’s dreams next week. But besides all this listing and dreaming, I thought it might be fun to make a little vision board for myself.

Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of these things that people have constructed, but I’ve never been really compelled to do this. Perhaps it’s because I had no idea where I’d put it once it existed. Or perhaps I hate crafts. (Craft people, calm it. Please don’t cut me.)

But yesterday, I thought it time. And so instead of visioning on a poster or something, I made a new desktop background as a constant reminder of beautiful things that inspire. And it looks a little something like the above. In fact, it looks exactly like that. And a lot of it may look somewhat familiar to you, since most of the photos were completely stolen from a few of my very favorite design blogs. (Which you should all read daily. Amen.)

The whole thing only took me about an hour or so, and I really love how it turned out. Each little aesthetically pleasing square represents something lovely to me.

So now my desktop is quite cheery. And I’m totally crediting this colorful vision for the fact that I’ll be traveling to Greece with Maggie and Aubrey next week… since there’s a photo of Santorini on there, and all.

See, presto! 1-2-3 Magic!

I fully expect that I’ll be modeling for Kate Spade, redoing my entire home, and will gain possession of the Brooklyn Bridge any day now. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, I’ll be pondering what one should pack for Greece. Is there a Greek clothing I Ching other than Mamma Mia!? Because yikes. Plus, Pierce Brosnan scares me in this movie, and I frankly don’t want the association right before I board a 10-hour flight.

The List

    Don't pack anything. I've been to Santorini in the summertime, and let me tell you, it's beautiful, but it's hotter'n hell. You will want to be naked.Luckily, the Mediterranean is RIGHT. THERE. So naked is good.

    Just drink ouzo and yell, "OPA!" periodically. No one will notice what you're wearing – they'll only notice that you are gorgeous and having a great time!

    I can't help but think of Shirley Valentine: I'm going to Greece for the sex! Sex for breakfast! Sex for dinner! Sex for tea! And sex for supper! Have a wickedly fabulous time. xo

    Kyran, Ha! I don't know about this Valentine lady, but I'm going to Greece for the yogurt. (And to scout for when I can bring my Special back with me. Then well talk about the other thing.)

    You're going to Greece?!! I had my first kiss in Greece. On a boat that looked just like the Love Boat. And then the next day I got stung all over by a jellyfish. Love hurts, baby!
