I want to first off thank everyone for all the kind and beautiful words that have been sent my way. I have been reading each and every one that hits my inbox. I'm still an emo-cheese-ball so they're mainly making me tear-up but I'm taking them to heart and smiling knowing that I have so many kind and loving people who are here to support me no matter how crazy things get.
This weekend despite a few breakdowns over Big Macs and cheese fries, I've decided to get off my bum and make myself happy in other aspects of my life. While I'm feeling deprived in the health aspect, I figured there was no need to deprive myself in the social & small indulgences aspects.
I put on a cheery new fall sweater and took Ollie-Monster for a walk on Main Street. I took about 30 bubble baths complete with candles. I napped for 3 hours on Saturday. I got all dolled up - complete with red lips and a flouncy skirt - for a girls night out. I met up with my college friend Jake (seriously how can you not adore a boy who hugs you and cheesily whispers for you to "melt into him like fondue" - or swears that he would make clay pots just so he could cook for you?) I watched my LSU Tigers dominate. I followed along for my first ever UFC fight. I had a beer...or two. I laughed at iPhone typos with SKing. I talked to the boy that I had my eye on. I went to the dog park. I made friends with strangers. I planned a small get away trip
The things that I talked about in my last post are still in the back of my mind, but right now I'm focusing on the little things that I can control and finding the small things that make me feel amazing and full of life.
I'm not sure how posting will go this week - I have loads of posts I'm behind on, including an awesome guest post from my gorgeous friend Ashley, but this week looks to be a little bit crowded and I'm still trying to sneak in some me time.
I promise I'll be around soon to catch up on everyone's blogs and to spread some love.
Again, thank you to all of you from the bottom of my heart.
