First of all, I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming positivity from yesterday’s post. The comments posted are just a fraction of the beautiful words I received, and I really want to thank you for your support and thoughts whether they were public or private.

The beginning of last week started off in a funk. I was depressed when I learned the truth about a long running lie, and then I was even more upset when I was yelled at for rectifying the situation in the only ethical way. Regardless, the first few days were spent pouty, moping. One of the things that brought me out of my funk was coming home to a beautiful bouquet of yellow flowers covered in gold glitter from the persistently amazing April. If that (and a card full of confetti!) isn’t enough to get you out of a funk, I don’t know what is!

Glittery Gold Bouquet

Sunday I drove two hours to my mom’s new house in Delaware. I had a good time exploring abandoned barns and traipsing around open fields, feeling the crunch of leaves, plants, and berries under my glittery flats. Driving down long country roads while listening to Mumford & Sons is not a bad way to spend a Saturday!

Extra Sparkle:  Hawaiian lunch  kidnapping friends like we’re back in high school  friends who spray extra layers of glitter on me even after I’ve covered my arms in my daily dose  Joe saying “Oh, look! Something shiny!” and then making out with my face  using an oyster glove to heighten senses  watching “Out Cold”  caramel apple spice drinks  meeting the Missive Maven at the monthly mail social in DC  a sea of orange in Charm City chanting “We won’t stop!”  seeing the red lunar eclipse  Charlotte’s Lydia Deetz costume  making a mask out of my Boo Berry cereal box  drinks with extra cherries because Brad is bartending  going to Adam JK‘s book release party at Atomic and getting my copy signed  being featured on Gala Darling  metal mermaid sculpture  watching old Christina Aguilera music videos  epsom salt bath in a giant tub lit by candles  a trip to the pumpkin patch with my dad  “Hocus Pocus”  an alligator hat from the dollar store  using Bug laying on my foot as an excuse not to move  witty banter with the cashier at Spirit Halloween  how much I’m enjoying the show “Gotham”  Chris Porter’s stand up
