I don’t have anything fashion related to say tonight. That will have to wait until tomorrow.
It’s raining cats and dogs here and it is a very telling setting for an emotional day. Today I have a heavy heart. I heard of the passing of an old flame.
I’m not sure how to feel. It’s a little like hearing that a good friend that you’ve lost touch with over the years passed away. All of a sudden memories of the time and place when you knew them come flooding back.
It is also a weird feeling because we just sort of had a “thing.” No, nothing like that. But while we really didn’t have a normal boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, we understood each other. I think I knew him and really didn’t know him at all, all at the same time. Maybe that is all we ever really can say about the people we love.
I do know this. I know that I always wondered how his life had turned out. I know that I thought of him now and then, especially when I heard this song, something we shared.
Turns out at 36, he leaves behind a wife and three young children. While that is devastating, I’m a little proud that he was so happy. As if somehow I had a hand in helping him along to the person he was supposed to be with. It made me glad to know that he loved someone, built a life with someone and, above all, turned to his faith when the chips were down.
I know that he will always be a part of my former life and a cherished memory that I will carry with me.
I know that we could have never been more than what we were then, but I’m glad to have had it.
I’d love to say I did something fabulous today but I think I did something important none-the-less, I babysit kiddos. And I am so lucky to get to spend my day with little ones who have sticky hands and messes in every room and pronounce things without their “r’s”.
What do you wear when you don’t really care what you look like? Okay maybe sweats was your answer. I confess it probably would be mine. But I did have to leave the house. So this was the next best thing-
And here’s what it looks like in real life-
It’s time to again break out the month-long style ideas for summer. I hope to be posting outfits that I create and wear and if I’m really organized, sometimes both.
So come along with me as we wind down the school year, roll down the windows, break out the picnic blanket and head to the park…summer is almost here!
I dislike this photo muy much. But this was after several days of put togetherness and it was time to go home. And some days a girl just wants a t-shirt and jeans, right? That’s my excuse.
All set to go home!
Here’s my commencement ceremony outfit, which I also wore to church. The dress is sleeveless but it was a touch chilly that morning so I threw on my cardigan as a jacket.
It made for an easy and comfortable outfit (but still dressy) to sit through many, many diplomas!
On a side note, humidity is not a friend for my hair…
