Gingham + A Capsule Wardrobe Update





This is probably one of the most bloggeriest (can I make that a word?) outfits I have ever worn and I reallyyyyy like it. Gingham is super trendy at the moment and I am a fan. Pants, skirts, shirts, dresses. I love that gingham comes in almost any form. This top is from StyleWe and I fell in love when I saw it. You all know I am a sucker for some cute dramatic sleeves. This may not be the first time you have seen this top, as it is super popular in the bloggersphere (yep, just making up words here), and I love it nonetheless. I have been trying to stay away from the super trendy items that will probably fade in the next year or two, gingham being a rare exception of course. ;) Hence why I started a capsule wardrobe (if you do not know what a capsule wardrobe is go back to this blog post) at the beginning of the year. I was tired of clutter and not being intentional with my wardrobe choices, so I tried out a capsule wardrobe for a couple of months and am finally doing a recap of the process.

Cancer Sucks



Last week Sansa had a bone marrow sample taken from her spine because it had been 6 months since her bone marrow transplant in January. It was a routine test to check and make sure everything was still looking good. Last Friday Sansa's doctor called me to let us know that there was leukemia present in her bone marrow. 7% to be exact. All I could think was "f*ck." I didn't say much or ask many questions on the phone because I was trying not to cry. As soon as I got off the phone the flood of tears came. Fear, frustration, anger, and sadness came rushing to the surface. We are beyond devastated because we did not expect anything like this to happen. Sansa has been her crazy happy normal self (just like you see in these photos), so we were very unprepared for this news. I mean, you can never really be prepared for things like this, but we just felt completely blindsided since everything with Sansa has been super great after her bone marrow transplant.
