Ohhhh hello lovelies!
It feels so good to be saying that. I've been trying for weeks to get back here. I can't believe I was gone so long! Some hiatus eh?
Every time I'd go to write, or email someone, or comment on a post, something would hold me back. I wasn't ready yet. I wanted to wait until I was absolutely sure that I could come back.
The very truest truth is that this little birdie had a torrential downpour of nastiness in her life. As you already know, a very dear family member was in the hospital. She has been discharged now and is doing well. Some extremely nasty, unrelated heartbreak kept me away from this place as well. I'm afraid I might not want to leave it again. Look what happens when I leave!
I'm going to be stopping by and making visits to most of you tonight (I say most because I am HOPING I won't leave anyone out, if i do I'm really sorry I didn't do it on purpose!). I've missed your goings on so much! Every time I catch a peek of some of these art happenings it breaks my heart that I've been gone so long.
I haven't completely neglected whimsy land, that would be impossible. You all know once the Halloween treats started coming out in the stores I was all over that.
Gaining new friends, like Mr. Rhino here:
Baby Lola :) She belongs to my aunt. An 8 week old Bichon.
Yes, I've been inked AGAIN. The tattooed lady they'll be calling me. You all knew about the cat and moon, but the quote is new. Bonus points for who can find it's origin.
I also had a brief bout as a redhead!
I loved it but alas, it was not meant to be. Compulsive me noted how light I could get my hair and thought "Hey, why don't I just get it blonde again?". BIG MISTAKE. I'm sure most smart people realize this, but over bleaching your hair = mush. Literal mush. Coming out in the shower, not even real hair anymore. Ugh. Needless to say it's dark brown again, and I won't do that again. The damage was not devastating THANK GOD! Haha.
As of now, I'm just enjoying fall, admiring the yellow leaves through my window. Learning to be myself again. Learning to incorporate the new me with the old me without one of them hating the other, any advice on that? Did it even make sense?
Oh but in delightful news, guess what I'll be doing?
That's right! Missing the Mad Tea Party broke my heart but alas, Halloween is more my thing anyway ;)
Blessings and love to you all, and thanks so much for sticking with me through this rough time. I'll be seeing all of you soon!
