Hi friends! I cannot remember which author said this, but I once read a sentence that was similar to, “Life isn’t 100% of any one thing.” I’ve been feeling this very acutely lately. One moment, I’m the passenger princess in my wife’s car and we’re picking up some takeout for dinner and then two exits from home, tears start pouring out of my eyes. The debilitating grief comes and goes and so do the happy things. I absolutely cannot control or schedule when and how the grief hits so I am focusing on the things I can control, which is scheduling and making space for joy.
Last week I had an appointment with Autianna Wilson, the optical goddess at Eyewear Love Affair where I had an eyeglass fitting experience like nothing I’ve ever had. I feel amazing about the frames that I picked out and I cannot wait to show y’all. I should have taken a picture of a pair of frames that I didn’t get that were from a German maker and they were a severe cat-eye that was pierced, yes, they pierced the frames and also distressed them by rubbing them against concrete. Utterly wild and so good.
