Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind emails, DMs and comments on my last post. It really means the world to me… truly. It’s been awhile since I shared a look into what’s happening in my everyday life but I figured this is as good a time as ever haha 🙂 Read on for more insight and peek at my light blue monochrome outfit!
I wish I could say that I’m feeling better but I’m not quite there yet. But I did get this post up so that’s a step in the right direction 🙂 Sadly, we had another loss this past weekend and it’s been a tough one for me to deal with for a lot of reasons but mainly because we have been estranged for about six years and I just wasn’t sure how to process it. I was hurt for a long time but to be honest, I grieved the loss years ago so this has been a very different and strange process. I forgave this person a long time ago in my heart but I did call to let them know this as well and I think that we both found peace through it all. I just feel so many things. I grieve the person but I also grieve the loss of the “real” family that I never got to have and now, that I never can have. All of these losses have been complex in so many ways and on top of other personal things, it has been an emotional rollercoaster for me.
It’s not often that I get so personal on the blog and frankly, it’s been more and more difficult for me to open up and be vulnerable as time goes on. I never want to come across as negative or putting a damper on anyone’s day. In fact, I strive to do the opposite. I want people to leave here feeling inspired, excited and happy. I want to bring joy. But I also have to be real and it’s not always rainbows and sunshine… though I try to make it that way 🙂 I’ve been doing so well lately in other areas and have really been prioritizing my health but this all just hit me like a ton of bricks and as a result, it’s complicated many areas of my life. I’ve been pretty sporadic with my posting the last couple of weeks because I just never know how I’m going to feel but I’m trying my best to get back to my normal schedule. Thank you so much for being patient with me. And thank you for never judging me… and for helping me to heal… and for supporting me through everything. I honestly consider all of you my friends and I just want you to know how very important you are to me <3
And as for my outfit, I hope that it brightens your day (I know it does for me!) and gets you in the spring mood! It’s been in the 70s here so our flowers have begun to bloom a bit early this year. I love that these little blue flower buds perfectly matched my light blue monochrome outfit (it’s looks very Cinderella-esque, no?) 🙂 This sweater dress is perfect for transitioning as it’s lightweight and super cozy. I really adore the pointelle pattern and the slight balloon sleeve! Love how well it matches my scalloped coat and I just adore these white accessories, especially my favorite floral beaded handbag (because nothing says spring like white!).
Thank you so much for reading!
I’ll see you guys on Friday with a link up and a less depressing post lol!
