On a more personal note and Happy Friday!

So I would like to share a personal tidbit about myself. The boyfriend and I have been in a long-distance relationship for close to 2 years. You may have noticed that because I am always going to visit him on the weekends. So this happens to be one of our off weekends when we catch up on errands and whatnot. I still miss him terribly the weekends we are off, but it is nice to not be traveling and just relax. I don’t know if anyone out there is in a similar situation, but I have to say it’s not that bad. We have managed pretty well actually. And for all of you who do get to see your boyfriend or girlfriend everyday that’s great. But if you don’t, you may understand that there is something very romantic and exciting about not seeing each other for so long. We usually only go two weeks, but at the end of every two week period, I always have something to look forward to. We always make the best of the time we spend together so those weekends are always full of activities. And most important, when we do finally see each other we are both so excited, I feel like we are at our very best. I do look forward to a time when we live closer. But right now we still have a lot of freedom to be young and pursue our separate career goals, which is amazing. I feel very lucky in that regard. I definitely tend to look at the silver lining of most situations. I don’t know why, but I just felt like sharing. Maybe I am in such a mushy mood because I have been checking the blog le love too much. But seriously is there a situation that you are in that isn’t completely ideal, but you make the best of?

I hope you enjoy your weekends and these links:

Men’s style: Swim shorts


I think I am going to delve into men’s style for once. At least my boyfriend (probably the only man who reads this that is not gay) will get a break from the girly daydreams and dress ideas. JCrew aficionado found this on Men’s Style. I think these are pretty cool as far as men’s swim wear. They aren’t your basic tropical pattern nor your favorite beer label.
