My Summer Sixteen Jewel: Meet Chelsea

Inside of my head… I was born in October, but I am a summertime lady. I love warm weather! I love being hot! I don’t mind glistening due to a slight sweat. Give me 85 degrees, hardwood floors, a house with sheer linen over large open windows, and a nice breeze moved by strong trees.

She has a ton of accolades associated with her, but for the purpose of this note, she is my AE (short for Alter Ego-long story) and she motivates me to write.  Her current doctoral studies have influenced me to pay closer attention to social media and its affect on my life. I must admit that my timeline is filled with a lot of motivational images, videos, and memes that have influenced me. I have arrived at this moment, and this is how I feel in this moment. So I decided to write a note to myself, because this moment must be captured.  It’s too important to drown it in Pinot Noir.  I need this moment to count for something other than internal shock.
