"Start spreading the news. I'm leaving today. I want to be a part of it, New York, New York!" The Zoo and I are back from our magical weekend in the city that never sleeps. I can't wait to share with you all of our adventures! Stay tuned!

Oh I can't explain to you the excitement that is filling up inside of me. Finally, FINALLY we are beginning to paint and it's the third week into the semester! I don't understand what has been taking so long but my first day of painting has been a blast! This is the beginning stages of my first abstract I'll be working on. I'm experimenting a lot with acrylics, water-soluble graphite and ink and I am having a field day! I really can't wait to get into the studio and work, and the size of the canvas is even better. It's large and in charge and perfectly square being 36" x 36". I don't know if it can get any better than that... I'll keep you posted.

Whelp. This week is fashion week in New York City, as I am sure most of you know. Too bad the Zoo and I are missing it by a week and heading to New York a week from tomorrow. I always look forward to the J.Crew fashion show mostly because it's the one brand that I can really afford (for the most part - as their collection is skyrocketing in price).
What drives me crazy though is they always show case the Spring Collection, as they should, but just as I am getting prepped for fall and winter I am always on my toes itching to get my hands on the collection which they throw in your face but you can't have for months down the road. All I know is I love where J.Crew is at. I love that every spring and summer their designs are along the roads of the beaches in Europe or cabanas in the Caribbean.
I cry over these earrings. Earrings are becoming my new obsession and I want to wear them more and collect them over time. But I'm talking about statement piece earrings, earrings that are more costume like and overwhelming - and these passionate babies above are right up my alley. They take me to the spellbinding streets of Spain and I want to throw my hands in the air and dance when I see these!
I don't even want to know what the price tag will be because my dreams of ever trotting around with these on is going to be shattered, I know. But one can dream, and one can save. So with the time gap in between the show and spring- I will spend my time saving.

I'm lucky enough to do everything on Earth with you. With two years of dating and one year with our knots tied, three all together makes a dream come true. To think that I have the whole rest of my life to do everything on Earth with you makes me one charmed girl.
You're the unexpected but you make perfect sense in my life. I get you and you get me. I put up with you and you put up with me. I adore you as you adore me. From the Caribbean through the Deep South to exploring the concrete jungles of New York, your hand in mine, our eyes wide and bright we have a whole lot to see, to live and to love together. You're my Zekey Zoo, and there is no one quite like you that can toot my horn quite like you do. You're my Jay Gatsby, my Rhett Butler, and my Rick Blaine, but better. Happy one year Anniversary to the one I love.
