you will never cross the ocean

I come from a line of people who are afraid of taking risk, but yet somehow I have always been a risk taker.  Taking risk, is something hardwired inside of me – I’m not sure how it got there, but it’s there.  However, when you think about it, the ability to take a risk really is a luxury, one which many people don’t ever have the opportunity to experience.

How to Summer Flower Arrangement, Sage + Sparkle

Typically Sunday’s are my day of choice when it comes to picking up flowers for the apartment… But every now and then, I need a mid-week pick me up, which is exactly what happened last Thursday.  I can’t exactly say which flowers it was that pulled me into to the deli that day, but somehow I walked out with 4 different bundles and a HUGE smile on my face.  It’s wonderful how happy something as simple as flowers can make you….

rainy day quote

Gloomy days call for a little motivation.  Getting out of bed on a rainy day can seem like an  impossible task.  Which is exactly the feeling I felt this morning.  Whenever this happens to me, I grab my phone and head to pinterest.  Why, you ask?  I  know it may seem counterproductive to get on pinterest as motivation to get out of bed… you’re probably thinking, doesn’t that derail your original goal as you get side tracked by image after… Read more »

chase your dreams

What a powerful statement, right!?  I’m sure you have heard this before, or a variation of it, but it’s so true.  So true in fact, that I felt compelled to share it with you today, or maybe it was that I was compelled to say it to myself… either way, I hope at least one of you benefits from this little bit of motivation today. My name is Fallon, and I am a dreamer.  But the secret to my success… Read more »

It’s a rainy, dreary day here in new york. Today is one of those days when I wish I would just stay home and curl up on the couch with a good book, like this one (which I know I’m late on), and warm cup of tea… but alas, duty calls and I’m off to work, but not without sharing a little message that has been inspiring me lately. It’s been a few weeks, since the last “finding sage” post, making… Read more »
