Outfit: Swan Dive

     This week has been a mess. Lots of bad news, lots to think about/work through. And, I've had my moments of total negativity and woe. But, I'm starting to digest things and see them for what they are. I've worked through quite a bit in my short time on this planet, and I know I'll work through more. Thank you to everyone who knows whats going on, and has offered support or just an ear to listen. It means more than I can describe. I'm working on measuring my life through the love I get from the people around me instead of the things I cannot change. It's trying, but enjoying what you do have and acknowledging people who do everything to be a source of light for you is way more rewarding. I spent time that I'll never get back dwelling on mistakes, and feeling very alone, when in fact I have a great amount of family and friends who would be present anytime needed. Being a big ball of sad is not worth that wasted time, folks.
     So, with all that aside, let's talk normally, shall we? I'm currently waiting get work over with so that I can be reunited with my dear, Andy; who has been away in Ocean City with his family. I've been counting down the minutes of his return, even though I know he's been having a blast. I decided to step out on a day flooded with not-so-great things to get back into the groove of my regular posting schedule. The end result was good conversation with an old and trusted friend, and these photos. I've been living out the remaining Summer days in this dress, and think that it's going to become a lifelong love. That's a totally normal way of addressing articles of clothing, right? It's been cool and breezy all week here in Ohio, and it's giving me so much excitement for Fall. I'm really not much of a Summer person. I like the golden light and changing colors, instead of this scorching heat and over-grown greenery; yuck! Well, I think I'm off to read away my last few minutes of freedom. Have a wonderful weekend, readers!
