Embroidered x Stripes x Sparkly

I love a good stripes on stripes day. And this was one ensemble I hadn’t planned on wearing but it just came together and I was not going to say no! I have had this embroidered jacket for almost three years now and this was the first time wearing it. This was also a date night during the week when my baby girl was on her first ever vacation without me. Oh, let me tell you, it was hard. I woke up every morning and went to bed every single night feeling as though a piece of me was missing. We have been together every-single-day since she was born so the thought of her not being around that whole week was just ….well, I was a complete mess!

I’ll be honest: it was nice to just be able to jump in the car and go to Bikram classes, or go to the grocery store, or go shopping, or spend hours working on my manuscript. {On average it takes 45 minutes just to get out the door if we’re going to the grocery store or anywhere for that matter. I mean do we need to bring the life-size Elsa and Anna to the store? No, I don’t think so!) Was it tough, absolutely, but I think it was inevitable that she would one day leave the nest, spread her wings and go on a vacation with her Dad. {The worst part of her being gone was saying goodbye at the airport. It was gut wrenching, not gonna lie. I cried like a baby in the car.}

As a parent, nothing can ever prepare you for the first time you are away from your child. But she’s back and all is right in my world! When I look at these pictures they remind of my daughter’s first time away from the nest. Like the memories, she’s always + forever in my heart, she’s my light, my love, my everything!
