real talk.

some verses that have really helped me over the past few days:

"fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand".
Isaiah 41:10

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding". 
Proverbs 3:5

"Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."
Philippians 2:3-4

"It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man".
Psalm 118:8

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act".
Psalm 37:4-5

"For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ".
Galations 1:10

"But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness".
Lamentations 3:21-23

know shizzle ~

yesterday the garmentory team & i hit up to the Know Show downtown.
we sat in on a couple seminars & then took a walk around the show.
the booths looked great- especially the one that was handing out free candy ;P
in between we ate at Giovane's and shared a goat cheese, arugula and duck pizza.
uhm, yum.

a small consolation .

A Small Consolation 

Everything that we once were
is now a sad and lonely verse;

When once I had so much to say
I am now bereft of words;

Sometimes it's just the order of things;
that make them seem much worse.

It's not as if you would have stayed
if I hadn't left you first.

- Lang Leav


pick up lines (how to deal) ~

thrifted black button-down blouse, Oak + Fort grey tank dress, Riudavet sandals and Karen Walker Number One sunnies.

yesterday i got to see my darling skylar.
it'd only been shy of two weeks since i'd seen her last, only it felt like a month.
she went to edmonton to be with her fam and so we had much to catch-up on over iced coffees.
oh right, and it was 6pm and still blazing hot out.
before we left i offered the remains of my long john, (that is clearly meant to be shared between two people), to the man who was sitting at the table next to us. 
i was slightly surprised when he accepted it without hesitation.
but it wasn't until he pitched me with "well the least i can do is buy you a coffee sometime", that really caught me off guard.
before i could even think how to properly reply i quickly said "oh no, don't worry about it!"
his answer was a taken aback "oh, ok."

sooo let's say i could relive that moment...
instead i would have liked to say something along the lines of:

That's a clever pick-up line and i really appreciate your offer but I'm going to have to pass. 
Thanks anyhow. 
Enjoy that donut!
