    I am a single parent of two. Divorced by the way. This post is so amazing because I do not battle with depression but anxiety. Sometimes I feel over whelmed and I feel like I’m crazy because these are my kids. I should.not feel this way. I step back and look and see that I am a full time working single parent and provider. I never get a break so my anxiety is justified. My favorite part of the day is bedtime. I get a solid 5 mins to thinks before I am out cold lol. Great article and I know my comment is probably not a great discussion but I really wanted to leave it.

      Netra – I am SO glad you did! Never be afraid to post what you’re feeling here πŸ™‚ Anxiety is such an unwelcome visitor, don’t you agree? Before you know it, your mind is racing with so many possible scenarios and situations and you’re like how did get down this path of thoughts? You’re amazing just by being the role model that you are for your children and being a single parent – I have so much respect for single parents! Especially lady bosses like yourself that do it all! Thank you so much for sharing your personal struggle with me!

    Tara, I loved catching up on your life – what’s been on your heart, your fears, and your concerns. It felt like I had an instant connection! I adore your style, and you are absolutely stunning! Sending love and prayers your way for your dad….

    First off, love all your outfits. Beautifully stunning!
    Secondly, I know exactly what you mean about being shy speaking out loud in another language you’re supposedly fluent in. I’m the same way when it comes to French. I haven’t practiced in so long that I feel really self-conscious when I do speak it, but native speakers usually tell me I’m doing great!
    Third, I love that you’re connecting with your followers. Blogging is all about making connections and meeting new people along the way – at least in my opinion!
    Fourth, so sorry to hear about your dad. I kinda sorta know the feeling. I love how you took the time to step back and analyze the situation though. We need more people doing that in life.
    Fifth, I know what you mean about helping all those being affected by the natural disasters happening around the world. It’s so scary to watch as people’s lives are being turned upside down. I’m definitely keeping them all in my thoughts and prayers as those storms continue to wreak havoc.
    Lastly, thank you for sharing what’s on your mind and on your heart. Keep up the great work! [Sorry for the obnoxiously long comment πŸ™‚ ]

      Thank YoU Larissa! I’m so glad I’m not alone on the language front – it becomes so daunting when you don’t speak as often! I start intimidating myself and then it’s all downhill. I love the French language, it is so gorgeous! I could listen to it all day!

    I love that black flowered wrap dress. Do you have a link for it?
    I am with you on the boomerang parenting. A very strange experience. I find I have a huge level of frustration and even resentment that they are not the parents I had as a youth, I have to step back and examine these feelings so that I don’t express them to my parents.

      Hi Gillian! Isn’t the dress amazing? You can find it here: https://www.thereformation.com/products/addy-dress-garland

      And yes, the resentment I thin was the most shocking emotion because then you feel guilty for having those feelings. It’s such a catch-22. Having moments of reflection certainly help process all of it, at least a little at a time πŸ™‚

    oh wow what a lot on your mind lately. however, as silly as this sounds, you still looked absolutely fabulous! and if dressing up helps you cope with the stresses of day to day then please don’t let anyone dull that for you. in fact, today I’m going to take my inspiration from you and put something nice on.

    I love your style and your honesty! Parent-child relationships can be so meaningful and valuable. It’s hard to see parents become less capable of certain activities, and I can only imagine how hard it is for both of you to deal with your Dad’s chronic illness.

    Your puppy is so cute and all of your outfits are cute as well. I have family in both Texas and Florida that went through the past hurricanes, it brings me to perspective that it could have been a lot worst.

    This is such a b rutally honest and open post on this part of your life. Now that I’m getting older, it sometimes crosses my mind about when, if the time should come, about caring for my parents. Not a great thought, not taking care of them, but their mental condition. Meaning, if one of my kids had to care for me, it would make me feel pretty awful that I care for myself.

    Oh, and you look awesome Hunni!
