crazy day after hair.

This week has been a crazy one.  Starting off with finding the most hurtful insensitive email of my life from someone.  Then James hit two deer.  Luckily he is a-okay!!!  We did find out two days ago though that his car is considered totaled, so now we have to get a new vehicle.  Totally did not see that one coming.  And just this week we seriously started talking about saving up for a new vehicle.  Funny how this world works.  Now we HAVE to, and fast!  We will be a one car family for the next several months while we save up for a new car.  I will be honest, its kind of been stressing me out.  Also my nanna's man has been in the hospital and that has been weighing heavy on my heart.  He is going to be okay, its just been rough for him lately and makes me so sad.  And the night of the concert I posted about in my last post, I got super sad about my dad.  Places like Floore's just make me think of all the times going out with my parents... and how much my dad LOVED music.  He would have enjoyed that show.  And we ran into some of his friends that he normally would of gone with, which made me sad.  We were listening to the Smashing Pumpkins on the way to the show, and they have a cover of Landslide, and the words have a whole new meaning now... and I lost it.  I held it together and still fully enjoyed the show, but by the time we got home I was just done for.  My emotional levy finally broke.  And it flooded all through yesterday too.  I couldnt hardly crack a smile all day.  Most days I can accept the reality of it all, but then others I just cant.  I just want my parents here damnit!  Its just been one of those weeks!  Symbolically Im glad tomorrow is Monday.  Time to start anew.  I woke up this morning and decided to just stay focused on work to get me through this day.  I posted lots of new goodies in my Roots and Feathers shop, and Im about to go work more on Ruche.  Keep my hands busy.  (thanks for listening to me vent and rant)



  1. I love the filters you choose. So pretty. xo, rv


  2. Hey Sweets, I love the pic of your parents on your desk and your kitteh helping you work. Off I buzz to follow you on Insta. Love, MJ P.s. hear you on the car thing, careful you think it before it becomes so, eh? And my lil' old belief is that sometimes all the shizz happens at once, to get it out of the way, instead of little bits of shiteousness throughout. Stop over and say hi! xo

  3. I love all of these photos. I wish I had an iphone. I so want to get in on Instagram.

  4. Your photos made me happy! And then your words made me sad : ( I'm very sorry about the email and the car and your missing your dad. Sometimes only one really bad thing happens but the feeling it gives you carries over into other situations. I think if these things had happened with time in between you would have handled it all well and good and your week wouldn't have seemed so bad. But since they all came at once... I agree with Moxie Jane though--it's good that you could get all of this out of the way! Now it's over (I hope I didn't just jinx you by saying that!)
    And sometimes you just need to let it all out. One thing can break you and you'll find yourself crying about things you didn't even know you were upset about. I find this cleansing though : ] I'm sure this week will be better : ]

    And totally unrelated to the rest of my comment: your craft storage rocks! It looks beautiful and clean and I so wish mine looked the same!

  5. Sorry about your bad days :(
    I realyyyy love your hair all straightened.

  6. those really are the cutest blowfish shoes ever!

  7. vent and rant as much as you need... and try to consider the poo other people try to leave us "little gifts" we can politely decline. That´s what my hubby would tell me, Budha would say. It helps, at least a little bit sometimes. Sometimes we simply don´t need the additional weight, when we already have a heavy heart. And: this too shall pass...

  8. at least you could let go all the energy that you keep inside, the sad energy i mean, and let it flow, good vibes for you darling and for better days to come :)

  9. I've been reading a while, but never posted. Thought you could use a little light in your life, so I'm sending you lots of love. Thank you for being so open and honest and oh so inspiring.

  10. love the picture of your adorable kitty! instagram pictures have by far become my absolute favorite ways to take pictures.

  11. I know how you feel. My parents passed away in a car accident back in 1993. I still miss them so much and wish they were here. Hang in there. I know it's tough.

  13. Laura, I love the photo's and love you! You are such a special human being. I am so sorry you are going through such heartache. Your parents were so lucky to have a daughter who loves and cares for them so much. They are watching over you :)

  14. i am so very sorry that my email was perceived that way. that was in no way my intention and i sincerely apologize for the hurt. i admire and love you and in no way would i ever intentionally hurt you. please do not let my words trouble you anymore, i am sorry that they have at all. :(

  15. I wish you didn't have to go through that grieving pain; but since there's no way out but through it I'm glad you're being able to let it out. That picture of your parents is precious. And I love all your beautiful food pictures. You and your nephew are too adorable!

  16. I wish I could reach through this screen and give you a big, giant hug. you'll get through it. sometimes it just sucks. and sometimes it just sucks more.

    hang in there, mama. <3

  17. lovely! I love the colors in these photos!
