fighting melancholy

{blouse: j. crew outlet, jeans: j.crew outlet, vest: salvation army, shoes: payless}

My mom and I have been constant companions for the past three weeks and this was our last day together.  It was filled with made up last minute errands to distract us from the melancholy.   Cyprus, my friends, is a hell of a long way away.  I can't begin to express how much I loved being home and the time I got to spend with my parents.  Not only do I love them, I like them.  My family members are my favorite people to spend time with.

So me and my Kitty, we decided to fight the melancholy with a friend who kindly took photos for us.  And let us play with her kids.  (Tank of a two year-old boy, wobbling down the stairs just to show you his "Dowa" book.  Yeah, you try not to hang out there, too!) That little family were such a breath of fresh air and a reminder of good things to come.  I've left one mama in the north for another in the south and another round of goodbyes... It's so hard to leave, but as my Kitty said, how blessed we are to have something that makes saying goodbye so very hard.  Man, I love my family!


  1. It's hard to say goodbye...but count your blessings, my mum died 1.5 year ago...I miss her like hell.
    Big hug, Katrien/Belgium.

  2. So sad that your mom had to leave...but so exciting that she was there for a while. How far away are you guys?

  3. I LOVE your vest and was bummed to see it was thrifted (Just because it means I can't go buy it).

  4. Sounds like such a special time! I know how you feel. Every time my mom leaves it's so, so hard. I do adore that vest though. Popping over from WIWW.

  5. Aw you two are so cute :) What a special time!
    I just found your blog randomly and am excited to follow and read along :)

    Lookin' forward to reading more!



  6. you guys are so cute! You look cool and classic!


  7. I would be sad to leave your mom too! You Two are some of the funnest people to be around! Cyprus is lucky to have you!!! I also love the outfit. If I could all my clothes would be jcrew :)
