Hello friends. I have been absent for over a week now. Early last week I became sick with what I thought was an upper respiratory infection. On Saturday of last week I went to the hospital because I was unable to keep my medicine down. I was diagnosed with double Pneumonia. I was release from the hospital on Monday and have had a slow recovery. Since I was sick a lot when I was a child it takes my body longer to heal from sickness. I'm finally out of wearing pajamas every day and being chauffeured around town. I put on real clothes yesterday for the first time and actually drove today for the first time in 10 days!
I have learned to rely on other people and let go of being in control. That has been very hard. I know 2012 has been a hard year in plenty of aspects and I may have over done it in a few areas of my life. I need to scale back, enjoy life & rest. I had so many friends and family come by to visit me while I was in the hospital. It really reminded me how important these people are to me. My Mom was such an angel. She did my laundry, fed me & spent 3 entire days in the hospital. Eric was out of town for a few of the days and his neighbor was nice enough to take care of the dogs.
So to make it short & sweet, I'm going to slow down on blogging. I will still be blogging but in a very different way. I'm not going to follow a schedule, seek sponsors & worry about my stats. I want to go back to blogging because its a passion not a duty. When I have something to share I will. If not I'm not going to create uninspired content. I really want to live this life the best I can. I want to have more time for family and friends. I'm sure it will be nice for Eric to have my full attention and not have my face glued to the laptop. I hope you understand while I start my new journey. And thank you to those who prayed for me & kept my spirits high when I was sick.

Did you catch the last "must have" post? You can catch the 4 must have shoes here. Lets move on to pants for this Fall. You can predict jewel tones & prints. Check out my top finds.
1. Gap Ankle Zip Leggings in tropic green. Pair this great color with animal print for an instant glam look!
2. Target Floral skinnies. Pair these whimsical pants with a mustard cardigan, striped tank & cognac riding boots!
3. Old Navy skinnies in Cosmos pink. How adorable to create a monochromatic look with a different shade of pink.
4. Old Navy Chevron printed pants. These scream Betty Draper to me. Can be dressed up or worn casual.
Look forward to next weeks "must have" post!

I have decided to take this week off from blogging. I will be chasing the dogs around the yard, picking tomatoes from my garden & simply enjoying this wonderful life God has given me. Until I return on Sunday I will simply live the last bits of this wonderful season. Have a wonderful week friends.

I have been living in tees and tanks lately. With the heat and humidity cotton always seems like the best
choice. I love summer but I am really looking forward to layers, boots and pumpkins! How about you?

I love going to my towns farmers market on Saturday afternoons. I make my rounds through all of the sections then go back for the best prices. I usually go by myself but this past weekend I was happy to have company with my girlfriend Andrea. We had a wonderful time and decided to keep the afternoon going with five guys for lunch!
I hope you are having a great week. If not take a deep breath its half way over! I am ready for relaxation and enjoying one of the last few weekends of summer!

A Polka Dot skirt with pockets? Yes please! I must admit this skirt was purchased with intentions of going into my Etsy shop. So you tell me should I keep it or sell it?
