There is so much going on in my life right now. My dad has been home from rehab after his stroke for about 3 weeks and then on Thursday he suffered a seizure. It was one of the scariest thing I have experienced. He was literally shaking and seizing in my arms. I didn't know what was happening. I thought he was dying before my eyes. But apparently seizures look worse then they really are for the body. And three day later, on Sunday night he was able to come home from the hospital. So that is really exciting, but at the same time he still requires a lot of help. He is still recovering from his stroke and now he is epileptic, so he has to take medicine for the rest of his life to prevent seizures. And as his main care provider it can be really tiring. Also with the school year starting up, am starting back at work too. So figuring out how we can get care givers and help for him for when I am at work is another struggle. But with all that happening I still feel really blessed. I feel like regardless of what is going on in your life there is always room to smile. Happiness is a choice and I absolutely choose it. I choose happiness and I choose joy!!!
About the outfit: If you have followed this blog the you know I love a good deal and this outfit is not exception. This dress I found on sale at ASOS for $20 (I think it is on sale for $16 now), the shoes were $16.02 and you can't really see the earrings in these pictures but I got them for only $1, so the whole outfit was under $40. That's a great bargain in my book!
