song of the day: 'livin on a prayer' by bon jovi
sorry paige, but i'm basically stealing your post idea. you don't mind, do you?
in the beginning, i didn't plan for this blog to be a place to talk about my self, my issues, or really anything that was going on my life. i just wanted to post pics of my outfits and maybe inspire someone else with my fashion prowess (i'm chuckling a bit here). but as i got to reading other blogs where the author is more transparent, i realized that those were my favorite daily reads. and i loved them not only for the style inspiration, but also the connection i made. and i think that's the key. we women (sorry dudes that may be out there) crave connection. we love to find commonalities and something in someone else that makes us say 'yeah, me too.' we like to know that we are not alone whether in our style of dress or in our way of thinking. and really that's why i enjoy this blog so much. i love writing posts and reading all of your posts because you are my friends. i've gotten to know you over the last months. and that's fun for me :) matt has asked me if i thought about only blogging a few times a week and i gasped. like he was asking me to stop talking to my bffs! ha! but it is nice to have this blog and all of you lovely readers. it's good therapy for me, that's for sure.
and that will segue into the latest on my mom. she was able to go home from the hospital on saturday and i spent the day with her yesterday. she looked great and had an amazing attitude. she was just tired from the seizure meds they have her on. but last night around 11:00, i got a call from my sister saying mom had another seizure. this one was worse. there aren't too many answers right now, but i just wanted to put that out there because you guys have been so amazing and supportive.
