Dealing with grief :(



this was a sign. the picture was taken during a helicopter ride between maui and molokai during our honeymoon. whales are one of my favorite animals..they are grand and serene and magical to me. just seeing them from above gave me goosebumps. they were a family..

something wonderful happened, but that wonderful wasn't quite meant to be. & so there was a loss. i struggled to decide whether to blog about it, but i find it very helpful to talk, and in this instance, to write about it.

this helped a ton! watching a movie that i was waiting for for so long was therapy! i watched it THREE times with different sets of loves: 1) my hubby & sis, who were with me during that devastating day. 2) one of my close friends who share my love of the series & fashion. 3) two of my BFFs from high school. And by the way, this movie was just fantastic!!



receiving flowers from three awesome friends also helped. i think having flowers in a room instantly lifts my mood! these ones are from my sister:



i also had retail therapy, probably my favorite solution although it definitely got me into trouble with the hubby! i heart my new accessory for the summer!! AND awwww-shayt! I'm sooo excited about the second one! Two of my faves combined?????? uh-oh...





i've also been reading this:



and i really want to get my hands on this...



my sis pointed it out to me. how fascinating to find a book that's just about letters and art! i can't seem to find the 6 volume set online. bummer!!

and last but definitely not least, i've been making cards. THAT always leaves me happy!!!






P.S. I probably will also get a tattoo..been wantin' one since my 30th birthday. It'll be of my favorite word, which happens to be my ultimate dream, and it will signify the happiest day and saddest day of my life....

whew!!! i feel better already :). thanks for reading! Laterz!

I'm sorry to hear that something sad happened to you but it seems that you know exactly how to climb out of that grief and cope. That purse is too cute...(totally worth the tiff with the DH) and your cards are beautiful. I'm glad your feeling better and I'll be praying for you...
