Annebeth 's Thoughts:

Hey guys! Are you enjoying your thursday? I’m going to spend mine studying in the sun, the perfect way to spend a thursday during exam time. I do wish I could be studying on a mountain in spain for example. I would not mind laying next to a pool there, in the shade of an olive tree, drinking freshly squeezed orange juice and jumping in the pool now and then to cool off. Fact is I would just really like to go on a holiday. I haven’t been on a real vacation since I was 16. I come from a large family with 4 kids and going on a holiday together is a costly affair. And once I moved in with my boyfriend, my family stopped financial support because my dad had a stroke and couldn’t work anymore. So I’ve been getting by, working myself and with financial support from the state for kids who study. But living and studying costs quite some money so I never really have a lot of spare cash lying arond, especially not when it comes to things that aren’t really “necessary” like going abroad on vacation. We need a new refridgerator, for instance, and that is something that immediately becomes a priority.
It is kind of mind boggling to think that we in our western, wealthy society already feel sorry for ourselves when we don’t get to go on holiday. I mean, we live in a nice house, we have all the comforts we could possibly need, but because other people can abroad several times a year I should feel sorry for myself because I don’t? F that. I should kick myself in the ass! :D

Being happy with what you have is something we rarely think of. I encourage all of you to do just that right now! And I have a simple outfit to accompany this message of simplicity. Enjoy the simple things in life! The sunshine, the grass between your toes, a kiss from your loved one before he leaves the bed to go to work, the smell of butter on warm toast, brightcolored nailpolish on your nails, the cat welcomes you back home with a “mrrrow?”, rolling on its back. Life is beautiful, even with less!

so elegant and dancer-ish! love the poses and the lighting!!! i totally agree with you--i've been noticing my own selfish self-pity lately and as cliche and repetitive as it sounds, we really do just need to appreciate what we do have!
Annebeth
Annebeth on June 18
thank you! yes, corny and cliché but it only became cliché because we have to keep repeating it, or we forget!

I love the photos, and I understand about going on holiday. I've learned to just take trips around my town, it's so surprising what you'll find! Everyone says I travel alot but I just hop in my car and visit my friends all around me, you get the feeling of finding somewhere new and exciting! I love the dress, you have such wonderful dresses!
Annebeth
Annebeth on June 17
I so agree, my boyfriend and I take silly little trips too. Fourty minutes of driving and you feel like you're in another country because the small things look so foreign compared to the roads and buildings you see everyday! And whenever I'm riding in a car and the weather is gorgeous, I just imagine driving from the airport to somewhere awesome in spain or italy, lol

love the belted dress, you look so beautiful in these photos (then again you always look beautiful) :) And i love your message. I get sad because I can't shop for clothing for myself and baby as much as I want, yet I live in a nice house, have food on the table, have a great mom to help me out, and a lot of nice clothes already in both closets. I guess it's the westernized idea of overindulgence.
Annebeth
Annebeth on June 17
It's true and it is so ridiculous that we get sad or pissed off because we aren't able to live the life of those we see on tv... We are blessed. Even though we aren't the richest, we still are probably richer than like 90% of the world's population. We have to realize how lucky we are to have been born where we were!

I love the pose. And I am glad you brought up the certain entitlements people feel. I know when I start feeling like that I feel ashamed. Because I know I will never be satisfied if I feel that way.

Well I don't know what I like the most, the dress, the great pose, cause it's really awesome, or the fantastic little note on the side. Probably the note on the side, I think our brains think alike and I could NOT agree more. When a loved one is sick or just passed away, it makes you enjoy LIFE, the simple act of living, breathing, feeling, thinking... the true gift. Beautiful dress! ;-)
Annebeth
Annebeth on June 17
thanks so much for your sweet comment honey, I couldn't agree more :) material things matter so little in the end, because it is only a means, not a goal. LIVING is the goal.
