So I've been having many nostalgic feelings lately. I don't like to really talk about very personal things on here, but let's just say there was a tragedy in the extended family. One that can't be undone. It made me start to think about and realize some things.
We all go through that time in life where we hate our parents. Correct?
Well for me that stage was like from the time I was 10 till like last year. I've realized actually how lucky I am to have a good family now.
My sister and I have always been close, but ever since this summer, I feel like me and my mother have a new understanding. We used to bicker nonstop. I guess I've just realized that life is too short to not get along with people, especially family.
And I've realized, when it really comes down to it...
family is about all you have.
For me anyway, my family are the majority of the few people I feel like I can trust in life. I know this is not always true. And I feel like I got pretty lucky.
After all, you are pretty much bound to your family. By name and blood.
So this is my big life lesson/epiphany of the moment I guess.
I'm fortunate to have a loving, supportive family.
Some people don't really have that and I find it extremely sad.
here is our latest family photo! photoshopped by my sister. :)
Floral skirt was a Christmas present from my sister, my mom's vintage burgundy leather cowboy boots from the 70's, burgundy clasp purse was a Goodwill find and I think the little shirt was as well.
Also! I rearranged my room and sort of decorated. You can sort of see in this picture below! I love the mirror which was my grandma's actually. And tree wall decal. Beatles poster. ducky pillow etc. :)
Haha, I didn't really know why I kept this blog up at all, I guess it was more for my own sake, but I would like to thank my readers...the few that I have!
