Happy Monday, y’all! Today is my birthday so I am taking yet one more day off from an outfit post, but plan to be back at it tomorrow. Birthdays are a good time to take stock of where you have been and where you want to go.
I don’t talk an awful lot about my personal life here on the blog, but it is time to address something deeply personal. The fact is when I moved a few months ago, I was moving alone. My husband I separated and were hoping it would help us recover what we had lost. We have been fighting to save our marriage for over two years and now it appears there is no more hope.
I have been reflecting quite often on what I should have done differently, as well as how much I have grown through our trials. In the end I know I cannot change the past and it takes two to create a better future. God is my rock and salvation and has promised me all things will work together for good.
At this point and time in my life I didn’t really expect to be starting over, but here I am. I have two sons and a fur-baby who love me, a home of my own, a good job, friends, family, and faith in my future. Pretty good assets for starting over, in my opinion.
So as I am reflecting on what has been, there is a lot of joy mixed with sadness. In this next year I am hopeful as I move forward in my journey with my two boys by my side. I know this was a lot of reality for a blog based on what I wear, but so often bloggers are accused of showing only the best of their lives. I am offering you truth and just where I am now. Honestly, I was hoping this was a post that I would never have to write, which is why I have put it off until now.
For those inquiring minds who want to know, I am 45 today. Still plenty of time for good things to come and God’s promises to be fulfilled.
Looking forward to lunch with my adorable mother-in-law, a special dinner celebration with my boys and then on to see Into the Woods. A wonderful start to a new year of life!
