My Grams is the third in from the left. Such a classic beauty. As you can tell I have her to thank for my eyes and undying love of red lipstick.
I’m going to be completely honest with you. This summer has not been one teensy eensie bit of what I hoped it would have been. In actuality I feel robbed of my long summer nights and warm summer days. I’ve spent much of my summer completely usurped by something that just doesn’t matter in the big scheme of things, and I’ve let myself get to a point where I feel completely drained physically, emotionally and spiritually. But I’m ready to make a change. A big huge hairy scary change. I’m done with seeing special moments pass me by because I don’t have the time or energy to enjoy them. I’m done trying to tell myself that I’m satisfied when I’m clearly not. I’m done trying to make someone else happy at the expense of my own well-being. I can feel huge changes coming, and you know what, for the first time in a long time I feel hope. Hope! Oh sweet glorious hope how I’ve missed you! So even though I’m saying goodbye to summer I can’t help but feel like I’m saying hello to endless possibilities. And summer, promise me that we'll catch up next year, I really missed you!?
(Sorry if this is ridiculously vague, I promise I’ll share more when the time is right.)
