It has been almost two months since I've posted. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I felt like sharing what I wore or what outfit I was able to thrift for $5.00 just wasn't important.
The truth is, it is important. Important to me and important for me.
I'm well aware of my age and how rare it is to blog about style and fashion when you are in your mid 50's, and live in Indiana no less! This blog has given me a venue to have discussion about what's its like to feel invisible in a very visible world. And I missed it. I missed my bloggy friends and their witty comments. I missed the occasional off color comment and I really just missed you guys!
I don't think I will be back with the same steam and thunder that I departed under but I'm ready to take some baby steps.
Our family is still under a lot of stress. I have finally come to the conclusion that I have done all I can and the rest will just have to play out in time. Worrying isn't going to make it go away or make it better. That's the job of three old friends of mine, Faith, Hope and Love.
I would like to thank all of you that took the time to check on me and offer inspiration. I know I didn't respond but, it meant more to me that I can ever express.
Today we are off to a 90 degree cookout. Gotta love those family functions!
This is what I wore. I started wearing maxi's last year and at the time actually got some odd looks. Now they are everywhere so I fit right in. I need a new trend just so I can be ahead of the curve!!
My fellow Hoosiers would freak out over mullet skirts! Wait, now I'm really inspired! We'll have to see what can be done about that.
The other day I read this quote. This is actually what inspired me to return.
"Life will knock us down. We need time to heal, and the determination to get back up. Stronger"
