Sometimes you have to be open to crazy possibilities, and changing your schedule at the drop of a hat. Like crazy changes to your life, not just a hey you get off work at 6 instead of 5, but like hey you need fly 1100 miles north tomorrow. That was just one of the surprising changes to my schedule last week, and the most surprising part of all was that I took it all in stride.

See, I like to be in control. I don’t like surprises – not even surprise birthday parties. For many years, I’ve lived my life making sure I’ve had a certain level of control over it as best I could.  I am a woman after all. And used to I would freak out a little bit – a lot of bit – when I lost that control and something unexpected happened. I ended up taking it out on those close to me so much so that they expected it to happen. This past year it’s gotten a lot better. Moving 1100 miles away to Florida in 28 days will do that to you, I guess. But still, life is much more calm and laid back here in Florida so when all the surprises of last week happened I was pleasantly surprised when my attitude stayed steady.

I didn’t mention this outfit at all, but it speaks for itself right? Also when you go from 60 degrees to 10 degrees . . . layers.
