To know me, is to know that I love reality TV. Judge me, go ahead. If binge watching vintage (ok, I'm using that loosely) Vanderpump Rules episodes is wrong, I certainly do not want to be right. I will say this; I've been quite obsessed with Stassi's podcast Straight Up With Stassi - so much that I've actually stolen one of her mantras - 'summer of yes'.
Cliff note recap: she got out of a pretty serious relationship earlier this summer and in lieu of a significant other, she made it her summer goal to pretty much say yes to most things. Hell, she even took a trip to Bora Bora (the ultimate honeymoon destination) to "crash" her best friends honeymoon. I mean that takes some guts, right?
As I've followed along with her adventures this summer, I've realized my life has sort of mimicked hers to the slightest degree. And to think it all started in May by taking a spontaneous trip to LA to visit my best friend, get my head right, and 'find myself' again. Ever since that trip, I can vouch that I've really never been happier. Call me cheesy, cliché, whatever - but it's true. That trip opened my eyes to my fun loving self. Maybe there's something in the water in California or maybe it was just the timing, but that trip brought me back to life.
This summer has been my summer, I'm finally back to my old self and I can thank Stassi for my new mantra.The summer might be over, but the year certainly is not. Say hello to my 'year of yes'.
Cheers to one hell of a year..
