I’ve been suffering from a bit of writers block lately. I wish I could lie and say that I don’t know why but I do. The truth is something very sad has happened in my family and I have been debating whether or not its appropriate to tell you all about it. I’ve decided to tell you what happened because I feel like I can’t be real with you if I don’t and we all know you guys would see right through that.

So back to that bad thing that happened, well…my father passed away. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably know I didn’t exactly get the chance to grow up with him. However, for the past two years we have been writing letters and getting to know one another, all with the hope that we’d get the chance to gain back a few of those years we missed. Unfortunately mother nature wasn’t on our side.

I’ve been trying to process this on my own. Focussing on getting back to work, moving on. I don’t like to focus on being sad so distracting myself and keeping busy is my best method. I have been avoiding people and places because everyone always wants to ask “how you are” and frankly, I am just not a very good liar.

Luckily, each day is getting better and better. Like the day my sister and I shot these photos with Jake from Beautiful Life Studios. This day was actually really fun, I felt a huge weight had lifted off my chest. It also gave me the chance to try out my new velvet bodysuit! It was officially my first velvet piece this year. I fell victim to the trend pretty quickly but how could I not? SO NOSTALGIC! Best part? It was under $15! Total steal! I guess I just prefer to spend the big bucks on the luxury items that will last through the trends, like this ever faithful Turrath jacket.
