Hello there!

Today was a much needed 'me' day that I spent exploring around the city. This morning I was heading to try out Think Coffee and then stumbled upon the Donut Pub on my way! And I can never say no to a chance at a donut.  It was such an adorable little diner with every freshly baked donut imaginable. I was greedy and couldn't decide on just one...so I got two! I chose a cream filled chocolate and a sugar coated jelly filled one. Both magnificent! 

After my donut detour I finally made it to Think Coffee which I've seen a few times and kept telling myself I had to visit. I went to the one down by NYU and it was bustling with patrons and I could smell the coffee even before I stepped in the door. I got an iced to stay and just chilled out awhile working on my laptop before heading back to my dorm to grab my tripod to take these photos!

A few weeks back in Central Park I stumbled upon the most adorable little toy sailboat pond and wanted to go back there to take photos today. I ended up getting super lost though in Central Park, ha. I mean, like really lost. It was so remote I felt like I was back in Ohio almost at the place where I take all my photos. It was maybe just what I needed though to be immersed in all the trees with the sound of water running to clear my mind. I'm usually in such a rush to take my outfit photos, but I got to just take my time and experiment around with different angles and shots which was peaceful. I just receive this unexplainable joy from snapping outfit photos. I always have during the last five years and I pray it never stops!

I also took some time after I got un-lost to write in my journal where I found the perfect Central Park spot. It was right by the lake where everyone rents row boats and it gives the perfect view of the city buildings behind it. It was a seriously gorgeous day and exactly what I needed. x

With much love, Lauren.

Oh Lauren. I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now (after delving into the archives) and I've never commented, but I thought now would be a good time. I am about to transition into the wonderful and terrifying world of college and reading about your journey for your past three years has given me so much hope. And to see you bloom in New York city after your difficult break up has been elating. Thank you for giving me the confidence to pursue my dreams, in fashion, in expanding my horizon and reminding me that not all of my life will be perfect. A blog often reflects the best sides of a person's life and can feel isolating in its shininess, but you have been honest and that is truly inspiring. Your experiences in Europe remind me that not everything will be what I dream of it being, but that's okay. There are still memories to be had in it and Christ to lean on. Thank you so much Lauren. I hope all is well.
