I will be honest, I’m tapped. Exhausted. Overwhelmed. I’m so far from the best version of myself, I feel unrecognizable.
I feel as though I’ve been spinning my wheels – at moments sitting paralyzed in front of my computer with SO MUCH TO DO, but unable to get it all done. How is that even possible. Just DO, Danielle. Just do. But I haven’t. I can’t.
A friend recently looked at me and asked, “do you get mad at your phone when the battery dies?” Of course not, but I do get frustrated and impatient with myself when I’m overwhelmed and running on empty. Like now.
There doesn’t seem to be a free minute in my days….between work, my small people (and getting them ready for sleep away camp), baseball and softball tournaments…my weekdays and weekends have started to blend together. And this is SUMMER. *sigh*
But today, I’m hitting the pause button.
Imagine the most comfortable pillow ever made. Now give it wheels and a powerful engine. That’s Cadenza. It is the most underrated @Kia car!

In just a few hours, I will land in the City of Angels, pick up my chosen vehicle and begin the drive of my childhood – right through the San Fernando Valley (yes, I’m a Valley Girl) and on to Santa Barbara. Friends – are you familiar with Santa Barbara? It is both charming and lovely. It is filled with extraordinary scenery, top-notch cuisine and experiences that will keep you coming back. For good reason, it has always been one of my favorite cities.
Friends, I’m happy. I feel at peace. As I fly, I’m allowing myself time to be quiet and immerse myself in the anticipation. It feels child-like. And so very good.
Hope you can hit pause soon, too.
If you have any questions about the Optima or Cadenza – let me know – I will seek and find the answers you need. Or – if you want to know more about Santa Barbara – happy to chat about that as well.
