I was staring out the window....

So, as ridiculous as it may sound, I love windows. If I could live in a house completely surrounded by windows with no walls, I'd be a happy camper. A loft would suffice.

As a kid I was completely obsessed with wanting a bay window or a window seat in my bedroom. I would put my bed up against my window because it was the closest thing I had to having one. If we ever buy a house/loft/villa/condo, I will only buy it if it has a bay window or a window seat. Period, end of sentence!

So, I've been M.I.A. from the blog world.

I tried doing a weekly post theme and that obviously didn't work. I think what it boils down to is I just don't have enough time. Or is that really it? I don't know.

But nonetheless, I've been drawing a blank when it comes to writing and blogging.


I will post music.

Perhaps it should've been the theme of my blog in the first place. Which brings me to a topic that I will attempt to write about amidst my writers block....

What exactly is the theme of this here blog? I consider myself to be a somewhat private person. So I can't just make it about my life. It is indeed entitled Live Out Loud. So it should be about ways to LIVE OUT LOUD! So, how do I, J Boogie Live Out Loud?

Through music, fashion and family.

There you have it! The theme to this little page we call a blog. How this crazy little lady, named Julie(a) Lives Out Loud.

Here's a song that I've been rocking lately...

New York I love you, but you're bringing me down....

I spent 6 days in New York last week. I'm exhausted. But it was amazing.

We shopped, of course. I spent a lot of money, of course. This is New York, people. The only way to do New York, whether it be living or visiting there, is to spend a lot of money. I don't know it any other way.

The only touristy thing we did was walk the Brooklyn Bridge. But I must do it every time I go to New York.

My dear dear dear friend, Lana bought a house in Westchester. It's amazing to think about how far the two of us have come as friends and apart in our lives. We're both married. We used to galavant around New York. I, trying to find a man. Her, keeping me in line. She now has a 1.2 million dollar home. I'm in my lovely little condo with my wonderful husband. Here's Lana in front of the house. It's absolutely beautiful. I'm so happy for her.

We did a little photo shoot. The weather was perfect

Overall, the trip was amazing. I got to see my dear friends, Lana and Tia. I did some much needed shopping. I got to be off work. It was perfect.
