When You Feel Like You're Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Recently, I've been feeling a bit low.  Santa Barbara is a beautiful town, but I miss my friends dearly.  There's really nothing like Austin, Texas.  No matter how many times I slip my feet into my cowboy boots and drag people to the boot scoot or make my own danged queso dip (because Californian's have not a CLUE as to what that is) it just doesn't feel the same.  It'll be a year this April that I'll have been living in California, and I feel it 110%.

Now, don't get me wrong.  I sulked in a big fat way.  For a full on week, I was Ms. Energy Suck, it was terrible.  But sometimes, you really just can't partake in the pity party anymore, you've got to DO something that makes you feel good - something that you know is an energy BOOST to everybody else, and the corners of your mouth will start to perk up a bit.  Everyone's will.  And then you can have parties, and I like parties.

There is a girl named Katie who lives in Brooklyn and she is beautiful.  I don't know her.  I just found her blog.  Everything about this girl's energy is bright and uplifting, and when I feel like I'm in a funk, I like to mosey on over to her world and get a happiness tune up.  This time around, I found a great public project of her's I thought I'd fashion into my own little thing for Santa Barbara: Heart Rocks.

I hopped on my bike, called up my friend Cameron, and we were both on our way spreading silliness and encouragement to downtown SB <3

I have so many rocks from the beach under my bed.
Time to put them to good use! 

My bike :)

Get it? :)


  1. Oh wow! what a cute idea. Hope you're feeling better. Come visit in March or so! :)
