a few weekends ago i finally paid a visit to roosevelt island, a small plot of land between virginia and DC. i grabbed a few friends and brunch-worthy snacks and we had a little picnic on the quiet island.
what’s great about this place is that there’s such limited parking so it didn’t get crowded. though bikes aren’t allowed on the island, there are lovely running trails through the forest. it was definitely a nice getaway from the busy city!
it happens to everyone – you know the feeling. one wrong move, one impulsive reaction, one bad call and you feel like it’s all downhill from there. mistakes are never fun and leave an awful feeling in your chest. though experience has proven itself to be my greatest teacher, it’s also the most painful way to learn.
how do you react when you realize a mistake’s been made? maybe you’re the kind of person that finds yourself passing blame, maybe you ignore it, or maybe you take the blame even when it’s not your fault. whatever the case, how you respond to mistakes can teach you a lot about yourself if you just sit and reflect on it.
just a question to mull over today: what have your mistakes been teaching you lately?

i’ll be on the move the next few weeks – destination: new york + singapore! i’m excited to go, but have so much to do before i leave. as i’ve gotten older, i’ve been more of a last-minute packer, which is no bueno but i’m working on it!

there’s nothing like a good dress. dresses are an easy go-to outfit for me, not just because they make for an easy time getting ready in the morning, but you can dress it up or down for whatever occasion and make it work. this new zoie dress by tory burch is one of my favorites – great for a professional day at work or a saturday brunch with the girls.
