You guessed it--one of my outfits from Vegas. Obviously it was pretty hot when we were down there, but definitely not as hot as I'd thought it'd be, so this loose, flowy top was perfect for a day in the desert. I was definitely feeling right in my element in the desert, but then I came home.
Yesterday was rough--just coming back from vacation, going back to work & drinking way more coffee than I'm willing to admit... but to top off an exhausting day, I was forced to come face to face (literally and figuratively) with a part of my past that I've been trying so hard to put behind me. I felt a pit in my stomach, a lump in my throat, and an ache in my chest. All the feelings I once felt came flooding back like I was right in that moment again. I knew this moment would one day come, but I didn't feel like I was prepared for it quite yet. I guess that's how life works, I suppose. I didn't know what I would do when the moment finally came. But just like that, it came and went, and I moved on with my day. Now there's only up from here.

  3. Jody I love this! That shirt and those shoes are both so cute.
    I hate stuff like that, the whole having to face past things and dealing with them unexpectedly too on top of that. That would be really hard and I hope you're ok. I admire your positive attitude about it but if you need anything please seriously don't hesitate to ask. I'd love to be a lending support in anyway I can.
    Thoughts are with you cute girl. xx
