You can only go full steam ahead for so long before life catches up to you. In my case, it happened in highly unexpected ways. And I miss you all.

We’ve already talked about my return to work in January, and touched on my career change from legal to aerospace in May which took up most of my time and energy. What I haven’t covered since then is my health going completely out of control and I didn’t even know it was happening. I finally wound up at the doctor spilling my list of symptoms with the whole “oh my gosh what is WRONG with me?!” out-of-body experience during it. I’ve since gotten a diagnosis (I’m not dying and it’s not cancer, but that’s as far as I’ll take it for the time being), treatment plan that leaves me totally and completely exhausted while my body tries to repair, and next steps for January and April.

Then add to that the fact that my family’s house is currently under contract to sell (nine showings and two offers in nine days, under contract on day ten so no, I haven’t been at home during waking hours!) and we will be buying our dream house in December (wahooooooooo! Best. realtor. ever.)

So I miss y’all. I’ve thought about starting little life updates (10amLife?) so let me know if that’s something you’d like to read. Given all my new roles and circumstances in life, I thought people might appreciate knowing someone else is going through the same things. Be sure to let me know what you think! I am completely worn out and exhausted by about 3:00pm every day so if I do move forward with life posts, it will likely be awhile yet.


As for beauty, this is what’s waiting in the wings…
