Husband and I thought it would be fun to leave love notes for each other in this little $1 mailbox from Target. The other day I came home to this sweet letter that reminded me that four years ago on that day we talked on the phone for the very first time. To be honest I didn’t even know that was the day it all started. I love that he remembered. And as he said, the rest was history.
(more to come on how it all unfolded from a long distance phone conversation, it’s good!)
I have an interesting relationship with fortune cookies. They are always so dead on for me that it’s even comical at times (more on that later). After a long and deep conversation with husband about our future and where we see things going for Taylor Morgan and our life in general, I was feeling a little overwhelmed. Then the next night at dinner I got this fortune. It was a tender mercy reminding me that a determined heart is a powerful thing. So powerful that it can actual scare away your problems. I felt an instant peace and strength after reading this. Let’s all remember this week to strengthen our determination and by doing so eliminate our problems and fears. Go get it!
I have almost completed my first week back at FIT for the new semester. After an amazing semester last fall, I thought it would be hard to top. But, oh. my. gosh! FIT just keeps getting better and better. I can’t believe how amazing my Professors are this semester. I really lucked out!
One on the top of my list is my sewing Professor. He is a 75 year old Italian straight up from Italy. I cannot express how excited I am to have a European sewing instructor, especially one from Italy. Jackpot! He started sewing at the age of 5 and is so talented it’s unreal. When asked if he made his jacket he laughed with the cutest smile and said in the thickest italian accent “I make all my pants and jackets. Why wouldn’t I? I do it the best.”
Words cannot express how great FIT and the Professors there are. I am so grateful to be studying there. Thank you FIT for shaping me into the designer I need to be. I love you.
Michael Kors, an FIT alum, was on campus yesterday. I too, was on campus yesterday from 9 am to 9 pm. And somehow our paths never crossed. So bummed! Michael, feel free to visit again. Next time I will give you my class schedule.
