Longing for Days Gone By

The other day, I spent some time with Emma looking through my most precious keepsake from my Grandma who passed away a few years ago.  It is a book she put together for her high school senior project in 1949.  She chose fashion as her theme for her project and inside the book she pasted numerous magazine cutouts of styles from that era including hair, casual wear, evening wear, lingerie, shoes, etc.  It is such a special treasure I will always have.

Something struck me that day as I fingered through the pages. Continue reading “Longing for Days Gone By”

Baring my Heart

Molly summer 2017-Molly Fall 2017-0044.jpg

Sometimes I struggle with feeling like I don’t quite fit in.  I don’t really belong to the group of single people but at the same time don’t quite fit in to the married group of people.  You see, I have been separated from my husband these last three years. Sometimes I feel a lot older than my age…well I have the grey hairs and the beginnings of wrinkles to go along with it 😉  Granted I am only 28, but I feel like I have already lived a whole life being single, then married, and now separated.  It’s a weird feeling and hard to describe to someone who hasn’t experienced this path.

Thanks Living

We’re going into the chillier months in the PNW which means a lot more time indoors for me.  One thing you all have to know about me is that If I’m at home, I’m usually wearing comfy pants and not jeans. In fact, I went through a phase (like a year!) where I never wore jeans after having Cole! Now I own (ONLY!) two pairs of blue jeans because comfy pants are definitely my #1.   I recently got these steel blue crushed velvet pants from PinkBlush and Oh my goodness, they are SO cute, and I was happily surprised with how soft they are.

Fall Cozies from Cedar & Pine

What else speaks fall than a slouchy sweater and beanie?!? This dusty rose knit and burgundy beanie are from the cutest local shop called Cedar & Pine.  The other day, I had the opportunity to check out this boutique in Stanwood, Washington.  I pretty much wanted to try on everything in the shop! They carry trendy clothing pieces as well as home decor (and even seasonal decor!).  Continue reading “Fall Cozies from Cedar & Pine”

My Struggle with Anxiety

Photo Sep 21, 10 48 32 AM.jpg

It’s the worst thing in the world, when you can’t seem to control your emotions. It can come in the form of feeling like you are going to pass out, your heart is racing, and your vision starts to close in. All my fellow ladies who have struggled with this can tell you exactly what I’m talking about and that is anxiety. 

I first started experiencing anxiety after I stopped nursing Emma, and my hormones were getting back on track. I remember when I went on a trip and suffered with anxiety on the plane. Normally I would have been so excited to fly, but that time it was so weird because Continue reading “My Struggle with Anxiety”
