I love love love herringbone! Just love it!!
I know. I know. It's very traditional.
It's classy. It's sophisticated. It's something you can wear casual, or all dressed up.
No. It doesn't have to be black and white. It can be any color you want.
Traditional herringbone has brown tones or black, white and gray tones. However, as you can see, you can showcase herringbone in wild and unpredictable ways.
Aren't these interesting and beautiful?! What creative and beautiful ways to wear or display herringbone. Accessories, full outfits, or decor. Herringbone can really make a statement.
Take a look at the amazing accessories you can show off with the herringbone pattern. I found a herringbone patterned lunch box, some amazing red (and other colors available) herringbone heels, a herringbone throw, herringbone slippers by Gucci, some great herringbone belts, and gorgeous herringbone cuff links.
Herringbone is boring? Nope. Herringbone is so interesting and can even be outlandish. Amazing, right?!

Health and Wellness Journey:
Nobody has good days every single day. There are a lot of us who have to push really hard to have good days at all. In my view, there are probably a lot more of us in that category than you can imagine when you are out in public, because a lot of us hide it really well.
Mental health concerns are something that seems to be hidden behind closed doors. People are still shamed for having depression and anxiety, not to mention more serious mental illnesses. They are thought of as weak, as less than.
Compassion should be the primary reaction when people find that someone has anxiety and depression. Love and acceptance could actually be a huge part of the treatment and cure for those suffering. Unfortunately, that is not what happens. The experience is very isolating which only exacerbates the symptoms.
Let's change the way we look at people with mental health concerns. Some are temporary and some are life-long. That does not matter. Both concerns are with human beings. Let's band together to help one another through this journey.
My Love Story:
...continued from last post...
Laughter. Laughter is something that is so healthy.
Steve and I loved laughing together. It was like we could read each others' minds. It was like nothing I had ever been around before.
When you find someone like this, after going through the life that I had been through up to that time, you don't think you are worthy of it and wait for the other shoe to drop. But, I kept waiting and nothing weird came up. Nothing wrong came up. It just kept getting better and better.
We had a date at Carver's restaurant in Sandy, Utah. This is a very expensive restaurant with wonderful food.
Steve was obviously very nervous. I knew this was the night. I didn't know when it would happen but I knew this was THE night.
Dinner was scrumptious. Our conversation was (as always) funny, fun, great.
There was something in the pocket of Steve's Dockers pants. He kept fiddling with it. It was square, like a box. I kinda knew what it was. The excitement and anxiety was building.
The night was cold and I was grateful to be in a warm restaurant with my love.
Did I tell you about loving this man? I cannot remember when it was that we first said 'I love you' to one another. However, I do remember the love tension leading up to that. It was something that you don't forget, the love tension. You know...who is going to say it first? 'Does he love me?' 'I love him so much but don't want to be the first to tell him', being afraid of rejection. AND finally, the experience of relief when you both say it. It's like a breath of fresh air. AMIRIGHT?!
Going from...'is he going to hold my hand' to 'will he ever ask me to marry him' is a roller coaster of emotional weeks to months. In my world, in Utah, as an LDS woman with an LDS man, the timeline is a bit shorter. It's the culture.
I was to the point of 'when is he going to ask me to marry him?'.
