Monday In A Moment #11 | On Opportunity


1 :: When Opportunity Knocks – Sometimes in life you are handed experiences. It has taken me some time to learn that because these instances are few and far between, one should always jump at any given chance. I have had the recent joy of revisiting Spain, a country I studied in seven {my, my how time flies!} years ago. This go round, while much more brief than the first, has been extraordinarily memorable. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be able to show D where I lived when I studied in Seville, or my favorite beach in the world in Tarifa. Now these places have so much more meaning, and I thank God that we were able to have this adventure. More blog posts on Spain coming soon!

2 :: Opportunistic Heels – Sales. Don’t you just love them? My heart always races at the thought that I am getting a pair of shoes that were once $85 for only $35. Some individuals are blessed with a gift. My dear friend, Chelsea Rawson, always managed to find the best deals on the most fantastic merchandise. So I dedicate this week’s shoe picks to you, C. Miss you! 1) Miu Miu Patent Leather Wedge Sandal $595.00 SALE $294.00 2) Steve Madden Heaven Metallic Flat $50.00 SALE $29.94 3) J.
