This is how you’ll find me these days: in a tee-shirt and cut-offs, bangs pinned back until I get my hair cut this weekend, whatever accessories are at hand hastily thrown on while I dash out the door. Maybe MAYBE a swipe of lipstick if I even remember what it is like to own cosmetics.
I haven’t been the most attentive to this Tumblr space, have I?
The truth? 2012 hit me pretty hard with a series of unexpected events. You know, it happens. And life just took precedence over blog content. If I could grab an extra 30 minutes of sleep in the morning, it seemed more important to try and take care of myself than post a picture.
During these pretty stressful events, I clung to my belief that things often fall apart in order to make way for new stuff. That’s always the case, isn’t it? It was the case this time around too.
Today, I am signing a new lease. In July, I’ll be in a new space. And I have a pretty good feeling that it is going to lead to a whole lot of new ideas and inspiration. Thus a whole new crop of posts and series and blog content will be popping up here.
Thanks to all of you for sticking it out with me. I know that I’ve been neglectful, but I’m not gone and I’m still happy to be here.
Total cost of the outfit = $55
