let me tell you one of the reasons that i love having an outlet so much:
today i find out that my brother is fighting for his life in the hospital. i go visit him and come home completely sick, nervous that the phone is going to ring and it might be "that" phone call. so, instead of wallowing in my misery, i pull up my boot straps and shoot an outfit. what better distraction? i am grateful to be inspired by something that can take me away from my sadness to a wonderland of sorts. i am thankful for many things right now--my health, my husband, my other love (my puppy), my family, my friends and my readers. thank you so much for all your sweet comments. it is very much appreciated and brings a smile to my face when i read every one.
so a little bit about the outfit. i found this sweetass ikat jacket on e-bay last week and freaked out. i got it in the mail this morning and it was more amazing in person than in the pics. it reminds me a bit of the laize adzer jackets of the 80's. i look at it and i see a work of art and i wanted to shoot it that way. my husband took these amazing pics by the way. (i love you baby!)
i hope you take something from this post. maybe think of at least one thing you are grateful for. life is fleeting, let's enjoy it while we can.
