Halfway Friday!

Hello Lovelies,

Today marks the halfway point of the What Preppy Wore Challenge in which I wear something new to work everyday for my last 50 days at work... 

What does halfway mean:

~25 days of work left

~150 Elevator rides left

~ 31.5 hours of commuting left

~ 4 Paychecks left

And then... my whole life changes. We relocate, I start something new, somewhere new, with new people, new ideas and mountains of new terminology. The things by which I identify myself change. When people ask "What do you do?" my response will be "I'm a med student." When people ask where we live I won't say Austin, I'll say the San Francisco Bay Area.... It's exciting, and nerve wracking, and in these moments it all feels very insecure.

Thank ya'll for your positive comments earlier this week... I need moments like that... moments where I take a deep breath and put my feet back on the ground and remember that this is my life, and I want it to be an adventure! (then the four year old in me says "but adventure is scary!")

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.   ~Helen Keller

Shirt by Zinger - Ross Spring 2010 - I love this shirt... the combination of feminine ruffles and the brass military style buttons... love it (I wore it when we had our pictures taken in the bluebonnets here)

Hi doll, don't you look adorable for a Friday afternoon! I hope you and PBF have something fun planned for this weekend!

I know you have so much you're processing with the upcoming changes, but I think it's going to be the best decision you've ever made and one you'll never regret. How is all the planning coming along, do you have the new place lined up and all? That's something exciting to think about! I'm sure you have your courses either already selected or already planning that too... just remember we are here for you and are thrilled to be a part of your next chapter.

Lots of love to you Elle, don't worry, it's all going to be good! Keep smiling!! xoxoxox
