5 Things Laura Loves

5things1{The coziest cashmere sweater from Ivory Row}

So many big and wonderful things have been happening all around me.  My best friend who I’ve known since I was 6 gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  I learned how to sail and got my ASA certification!  My girlfriend launched her cashmere line Ivory Row (more on that next week).  The last 2 weeks I got to spend quality time with girlfriends who I hadn’t seen all Summer.  All of these wonderful things are wonderful because a year ago, we were all in such different places in life.  I dare to say most great things in life happen when you least expect it.

I really hate that question, “where do you see yourself in 5 years?”  I really don’t want to plan that out.  I love that life is full of opportunities, surprises, twists and turns because that’s what makes life amazing.  Exactly 5 years ago, I was just dumped by my long time boyfriend, living with my parents in the suburbs, and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.  5 years later…I never dreamed that I would be living in New York City, the place I’ve wanted to be since I was a little girl, living with the man of my dreams, traveling the world and being surrounded by positive and solid friends and family.  So no, I don’t know where I’ll be in 5 years and thank God!  I do know that I want to be a better person, learn more things, travel to more places, and say yes to every opportunity that comes my way.

These were the things I’ve been lovin’ the last two weeks.  TGIF! xo
