Irarely dress bohemian or free-form (last I can remember was this outfit) but I need to write myself a little note of encouragement – it feels so darn good (read: comfortable) dressing this way!

Life has been a mess for me lately: in the past month I’ve been working in the ICU (first month of residency, eek), I came down with the flu (summer flu’s are even worse than winter ones), my debit card identity got stolen, I moved into my first house, my iPhone broke, we have been living without a refrigerator, washer, or dryer, and my grandmother passed away. Needless to say July 2012 will go down in the history books as a terrible, no-good month for me all-around. I’m so happy with our house, of course, but it is going to take some time unpacking and decorating. We have our work cut out for us, as they say.

Please bear with me a little bit longer – I know posts have been few and far between but I will try my best to squeeze out a post here and there – because let’s face it, I miss you guys!
