Ode to a blue skirt

Happy Sunday and long time no see, my dear friends. :) I decided to come back to blogging/the internet today and end my hiatus. The break was good, though, but fairly quickly I missed posting. This past week has been pretty crappy, overall. I've thought about it and decided that I don't wish to share what happened because right now it doesn't matter anymore. I am okay for the most part. It was really sweet the number of people that contacted me and kept me in their thoughts and prayers, though. ♥ So thankyou everyone.
Today I was supposed to continue with my Sunday Series, but since I haven't posted since last Tuesday, I thought it was necessary that I post these photos and talk to you guys a little. Once again, thank you for your support about wanting to change up this blog. For some reason right now I feel very confident in posting what I want, when I want. I hope this feeling stays.

On a different note, I'm very proud of myself because I bought this blue skirt on Friday but it was about mid-calf length and looked a little bit Sunday school teacher ish. (hehe) So Friday night I chopped this sucker up and did a little sewing! I'm excited that I can now hem. I know it's not that hard, but I'm so excited! Haha. I'll leave it at that. :) Have a sweet Sunday everyone. xx

  13. I'm glad you're confident and I hope the feeling stays too. You're a bright, intelligent young lady and I know you will go a long way, blog-content included! It's crazy how much fulfillment you can get out of doing something as simple as hemming a skirt, and maybe it is easy, but so many people can't do it. So good for you and go ahead and be proud :D

  19. Such breathtaking Spring photos here. I love how you photographed your surroundings...b/c they are just so beautiful! Nice work on the skirt. It's such a pretty and simple piece and the way you've accessorized is lovely. I've been hemming up a storm lately too. Silly to say, but it's quite a rewarding little feeling to accomplish something like that.

    With that being said, hope you are doing well Elanor and that things are looking a little brighter for you. Day by day and they surely will:)
