Hello to you all, my dear readers! So I wanted to write a real talk post and show up here today to chat. This place has been one of my favorite places since 2011 and for that I am so, so happy. This space is super special to me and so are YOU!!
I'd like to get real for a minute and share a little bit about me the past half year. The last 6 months of life have been a roller-coaster honestly. Rewind back to July we received a phone call that a family member was sick and not doing well. We decided we needed to see him and planned a road trip back home to the Midwest. After arriving we ended up getting into a car accident and totaling our car. My husband, myself and son were in our car and we walked away ALIVE! We are alive and that's all that matters. Needless to say, our trip back to home has changed everything. Although it was less than ideal, we made the most of it even though we weren't really feeling well. We were and still are just thankful to be OK. Even though things could have been much worse, we've still been dealing with some physical problems from the accident and the healing process has been SO much longer than I ever thought or could have imagined. I guess bodies don't just snap back to normal. It's been a bit of a struggle but this year I've vowed to do me and to start taking the best care possible.

So with all of that said, I'm choosing to show up here and I'm also choosing happiness. I'm trusting my body knows what to do and will heal itself. I trying to return to normal and keep on keeping on. Changing how you do things is hard and it's been interesting but the only way to move is forward. Recently I had one of those aha moments where I was faced with a question and somehow realized my focus needed to be on myself in order to move forward. This has helped me SO much. I'm still learning but it's been wonderful. I'm opening myself up and I'm allowing whatever needs to come to come on in.
This place may shift throughout the year and bring in more realness so please stick around. The main focus will still be fashion, interesting design, travels and of course coffee but more posts like this will be sprinkled in throughout. I'm believing in my heart that 2016 will be one of the best yet!
Lots of love!
