Good morning, lovelies. I hope you're enjoying a glorious Fourth of July (or perhaps Canada Day) weekend so far! I've wined and dined with family, danced into the wee hours of the morning with best friends from home, and will soon reunite at the beach with college friends. It's been spectacular and I'll be back soon with a photographic recap. Until then, continue to enjoy yourself, and, if need be, get inspired with a few of my favorite quotes:
"Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful." -A. Funicello

"Not all those who wander are lost." -J.R.R. Tulkien

"Be in love with your life. Every detail of it." -J. Kerouac
"An empty canvas is full." - R. Rauschenberg
"That's the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone have a good fucking life." -C. Palahniuk

"If we did all the things we were capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves." -T. Edison
"Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don't want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you're doing here. Believe in kissing." -E. Ensler 

P.S. It is raining, it is pouring, but is the view from my boss' apartment not absolutely stunning?! I just love summer in the city.
