Even if you have to shimmy your sparkly mini-dress down around your waste and you spend the majority of the day rather concerned that you won't be able to wiggle your way out of it again.

PS Don't worry. I got out of the skirt-dress thingy... but it was touch and go for a minute.

LOVE

My friends got married and it was so so lovely.
A cathedral and the fanciest hotel in town is a genius way to commit to love.

July 26, 2014

Plus I had an inbetweenie party. Over 20 people crammed into my tiny apartment between the ceremony and the reception. I cannot confirm or deny that we snuck jello shots into the dinner.

cardi: Joe Fresh
dress: Ricki's 
necklace: Gma's 
shoes: Fluevog



We danced our faces off and celebrated love and those are two of my favourite things to do!

Running?

The Gentleman Caller and I signed up for Run of Dye at the beginning of the summer. Apparently, it's a fun run... which I think is a misnomer.


I am not a runner. In fact, I cannot figure out why people like running, like, at all. But still maybe if people like it, I could too? If I keep trying?


Ok, Ok... It was pretty fun.

Before

As life carries on, I was wondering if I should continue with this blog. What is the point of writing and nonsensing if no one is reading it? But maybe it's like a tree in the forest...
And it turns out that I like having a blog. I like taking photos and bullet pointing my life, even if it's just for me. Because, honestly, I can't remember what I wore last week without taking a photo of it. And even before I ever had this blog I kept of record of what I wore by drawing paper dolls.


June 2014


So maybe I'll try to update, if only just for myself.

Show and Tell




These places from above put a whole new perspective on familiar sights!

I love to travel and see new places. Here are 25 best cities to go to. I've been to 15 and would love to go to all these places!

This guy has got it right. This is what I believe about the world!

This is proof that it's not too late!

If you ever wanted to practice your Scottish accent (and let's be honest, who doesn't?) read this definition of Bairn out loud. The best.

Sending out so much love

I haven't been writing because I don't know what to write. I don't know what to say. I don't know what to do. I find making even small, inconsequential decisions almost impossible.

What do you do when the person who means everything is literally fighting for her life? How do you help? What can you do? Other than giving lots of hugs and holding hands and making food and brushing hair... Really, though. What do you do? What can you do that will make a difference or help at all? I guess you can pray and visualize cancer melting away, hoping and praying and working on being positive. The thing is I wish I could give my strength away. I wish that all the protein that I eat could be magically transferred to her. I'd take it on. I think we all would.

What does daily life look like when you're mind is occupied with fear? What is the point of dressing up cute? Does anything even matter, other than love?

                                   
                          I don't know what this graffiti is about. I like that it's emphatic. And also Fuck Cancer. 































Is there a how to manual? Does anyone have any insight on balancing hope and reality, fear and love, day to day life with everything else? I know this isn't unique. I know it's not just us going though this. But it also feels so so big.

Love and bright light to everyone. So much love.
