You probably noticed my absence from blogging. I guess it is for a few reasons #1 being that nursing school is rounding the home stretch and taking over my life along with some family things. I also really wanted to re-evaluate my blog and remember why I started. Sure it’s fun to get dressed up and take pretty pictures but I also don’t want to be a slave to my computer or worry about numbers or fitting a stereotype. I think I was also completely overwhelmed with the feedback I received from my “Once You Are Real” post. I honesty was not expecting the outpouring of love, concern, and empathy we received via text, phone call, blog comments, fb comments, and messages. I want everyone to know we read every single one and there was not one mean comment which touched my heart. I sat and cried for days feeling so loved and understood by so many people that I admired and some I had never met. Thank you for your time to write us and to pray for us. We appreciate it more than you know.
Fun things are in the works this next year and it’s less than 3 months till nursing school graduation and I seriously feel like I am in Dori mode… “just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.” Cameron is also starting his 4th year of school and I can’t believe where the time is going!
This is one of my favorite summer dresses and I know your thinking that I am crazy since it has long sleeves but the material is so breathable. The design reminded me of doodles my Grandmother use to draw on little cocktail napkins and I knew I had to have it. I love with clothes/objects can give remind you of a favorite memory.
Hope you are having a wonderful week and thank you again for all your sweet comments from my previous post. It meant the world to us.
