on the power of showing up

note: I wrote this post in April of 2019 (pre-COVID). It's been sitting in my drafts for quite a while, but I think it's time for it to see the light of day. It's been helpful for me to reread over the past few months, especially as I continue to try to make an effort to write, and I hope it can be helpful to you, too. i got an invite to a writers' group a few months ago, and i had never felt like more of a fraud in my life. it had been months, if not years, since i'd felt like a writer. the proverbial well of words in my heart had dried up, it seemed, and i wasn't sure if it was ever coming back. i agreed to go out of a sense of helplessness—i'd identified as a writer ever since i could remember. if i'm not a writer, who am i?  i told myself that it was important to show up and act like a writer even when i didn't feel like one, because even though i hadn't been writing, i reassured myself, i still was a writer. but sometimes the words f

In Which I Am Ridiculously Happy

I had my moments today, but for the most part, I was ridiculously happy. Why?

Because I was wearing this:

Purple tanktop, layered with a looser green one. Denim bermuda shorts. Gray shorts. And the best part? BARE FEET! :D
(and no, I didn't wear the stars. Those are decoration. ;)

For some reason, every time I put on a pair of shorts for the first time each year, it makes me SUPER-DUPER HAPPY. I guess that's because summer is my favorite season, and shorts remind me of summer. Never mind that it was freezing today, in the 40's. Never mind that it's only March. Never mind that in Colorado, spring doesn't arrive till late April or May.

It doesn't matter because when I wear shorts, I know one thing for sure.

Summer is on the way.

[and so is the post about Avary. Stay tuned! :D]


  1. Yea! I dug my flip flops out yesterday to wear to dance. I even had to search for the sunscreen today! =P We even had dinner outside--despite the fact that we all had chill bumps and ended up going inside for desert. Never mind that it only got up to 60, yippie for spring! =DDD

    I'm so looking forward to your post on Avary! =)

  2. Yay for summer and summer clothes!! =) xo.

  3. I was wearing capri's a few days ago, I didn't get cold either. It was awesome. I can't wait till Much and I can take a walk and take our flip flops off to feel the hot, hot, HOT sidewalk on our feet. It'll be awesome. :)

    All that being said... it snowed today. *sigh*

  4. Is that really what you wore today? Was it hard to find those items on Polyvore? It looks like a really fun way to do fashion posts without showing your face. ;)

  5. Cute outfit! I really like it. :)
