  • Friday Feels: Thankful that Sean and I still have separate bank accounts ๐Ÿคช 
Shopped and tried on all things #nsale yesterday to narrow down to the best of best-sharing my picks on the blog and in stories! ๐Ÿ’œMy advice๐Ÿ’œ-have a strategy and focus on the things you need/will need for a fall wardrobe refresh. A lot of items I bought are wardrobe staples-including items I missed last year and wasn't missing this year. I'm all about planning ahead and saving money in the process which is why I shop this sale!
My top items are tagged on this post-screenshot or follow me in the @liketoknow.it app (where I'll also be tagging all my try on's)! #nordstrom #nordstromanniversarysale #nordstromsale #nordygirl #shoptilyoudrop #fall
  • About a year ago, Sean and I were at a restaurant sitting at the bar. We were both zoned out to a baseball game on TV. There was a break in the game for a ceremony. Fans In the stands were holding up a sign in honor of their loved one who was battling, or had lost their battle, to cancer. And it wasn't just the "fans." It was Every. Single. Person. Some signs said "Dad," some said "My best friend," some said their loved one's name. ๐Ÿ’œ
I would say I was crying, but sobbing would be more accurate. Sobbing for the people holding the signs, for the names of the people on the signs, and for the overwhelming feeling of connection to hundreds of strangers on TV. My sign? It would say "Mom." ๐Ÿ’œThere were many nights I could have watched that same ceremony from a hospital room.  There are months worth of hours I DID watch TV from a hospital room. That ceremony moved me so much because, for once, I didn't feel alone in knowing what it's like to have a loved one battle cancer.

I share this story on this platform for the endless hours I spent on Instagram trying to escape, trying to get lost in pretty pictures and away from what seemed like our version of hell. ๐Ÿ’œWhat I subconsciously sought furiously scrolling were stories similar to mine. Not that I was looking for stories of grief and heartbreak, but I was desperate to find someone like ME: a daughter, sister, and a career woman. One who quit her career and left her life in her city to stand strong for a sick parent and emotionally support the other. A woman who knew that despite what she shows to the world on the surface, she knows life behind the scenes is messy, unexpected, fragile, and unpredictable. Regardless of her circumstances, she still strives to live her best life. Lastly, I was looking for a strong woman who, despite, or in spite, of her situation, came out the other side stronger than before. ๐Ÿ’œ
I share this story just in case there's ONE person out there that needs what I needed. So that she finally feels the way I did watching that ceremony, and so she finally finds what she's been scrolling her feed for hundreds of other nights. You are NOT alone. You are STRONG. You WILL make it. I HEAR you.๐Ÿ’œ
