I discovered the lovely UK label Dahlia a few years back after seeing the epitome of romance, whimsy, and nostalgia in a dress on a gal on Chictopia. I went to the site, pining and wishing after every single dress I saw...literally drooling in love at a label that epitomized everything I wanted in a piece of clothing. I vowed to invest someday in a Dahlia dress and quite a few times I found one (okay, maybe even two) in my Modcloth checkout bag, but never went through with things...
But I can now say I am an incredibly proud Dahlia dress owner! Oh.my.goodness. So utterly and hopelessly in love with it. A pretty dress can repair any broken heart (and some Ed Sheeran on repeat, too). I haven't felt very pretty the past week (who would after a break up?) , but I felt beautiful in this dress. It's amazing how powerful a garment can be.
Anywho, I've been doing good lately and I'm proud to say that. I'm not jumping up and down and doing cartwheels,but I'm holding myself together, enjoying life a little piece at a time. Watched Tuck Everlasting this morning in my bedroom on my laptop and bawled my eyes out...haha sounds silly but I just love doing that!
I also hung out with some gal pals from high school tonight before we all go off to college which was swell. A few nights ago I got together with a childhood friend and her family, too. It's funny because we were THEE best of friends growing up, then separated in junior high school, and hated each other for awhile...Over the years all of the silliness faded away though and we were able to rekindle what we once had.
It just goes to show you that even though any sort of relationship (friendship, boyfriend/girlfriend) may end, that doesn't mean it's over for good. It doesn't mean that you can never have a connection with that person again...God brings us together at the oddest times, when we least expect it.
I hope I can do this sort of thing with another person in my life. But in good time. No rush. No pressure. When we're both ready ♥
With much love, Lauren.
