Giving Up?

Do you guys ever feel like giving up? Lately, I've been feeling like giving up on this blog. I've been thinking, what do I want out of this blog? Why am I doing this? Is this going anywhere? Am I even good at blogging? I started this blog back in September 2014, and I do enjoy the snapping of the photographs and sharing some of my thoughts here.  This blog has been sort of like a diary for me, a very public diary. Sometimes I feel that if I want this blog to succeed I need to be more active, post on a regular basis and be very active on social media, which honestly I'm not. I get so caught up in my daily tasks and forget to post daily activities like what I'm drinking or eating. And then I wonder, what type of success would I like to achieve from this blog? 

I've noticed that with anything, I always get thoughts in my head and start to second guess myself and feel like I suck, I should just quit. For instance, I've always had an interest in sewing and I always end up giving up mid way through a project. I end up giving into my thoughts and stop pursuing an interest. I think this blog has been the longest extra curricular activity/project I've ever pursued. I have lots of ideas for this blog but the execution of those ideas is lacking. Why do I give into the negative thoughts instead of the positive ones?

Museum Day

Last Sunday my husband and I had a museum day. Earlier that week we saw a news segment that was talking about a new exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum. The exhibit that immediately sparked my husband's interest, The High Art of Riding Low: Ranflas, Coraz√≥n E Inspiraci√≥n. This new exhibit explores the world of the Low Rider and the inspiration on artist.  We made our way to the Miracle Mile in search of some Low Riders. 

Upon our arrival we were greeted by two beautiful cars but we still had to go up three floors to start the exploration. It was three levels of beautiful cars that took your breathe away.  Let me just say even if you are not a car aficionado, you should visit this museum. The museum is filled with beautiful historic cars from every possible era. It's amazing to see how far the automobile has come and how beautiful a car can be. 

Our visit ended on the first floor, at the exhibit we were initially there for. The exhibit was smaller than I expected but I really enjoyed it. The artwork on these cars is amazing, definitely worth a visit. In addition to the cars, they had artwork from artist that have been inspired by the Low Rider. At the end of our visit we left with the desire of owning classic car that we can drive around on Sundays, but we settled for a '67 Impala model car that we bought at the gift shop.

Tea Time, My Time.

A couple of months ago my sister purchased a Groupon for a tea house in Seal Beach and it was going to expire this past Saturday. We finally decided to use up the voucher and enjoy an afternoon tea. I'm not sure why it took us so long to redeem the voucher, but I'm glad we did. The place we went to was McKenna's Tea Cottage and it was just the cutest. In addition to the seating area, it had a cute little shop area where you can buy all sorts of goodies like candy, accessories and tea related items.

Anyways, it was nice to do something with my mom and sister. I always feel like I'm rushing my time to meet my husband for some sort of outing when I'm with them. So this time I told my husband not to make any plans because I was taking my time. I need to do this more often. I constantly feel like I'm in a hurry or being rushed, I don't even know why because I don't have kids.
