Today’s post has to be a quick one. In a few hours I’ll be flying down to Florida to care for my grandmother who’s being released today from rehab after her stroke last month.

I won’t lie I’m terribly scared and anxious about it. Hardly slept last night in fact. And I have no real idea why.

Do you ever have that happen? Anxiety you just can’t seem to place? It’s just there…

Hopefully my fears will be proven wrong and this transition will go smoothly. Hopefully this anxiety won’t ultimately dampen my creativity too much. Hopefully I’ll be able to continue to post here regularly too.

And hey, at least I’ll be in warm weather, right?

But for those of you who stuck in the cold I’ve just launched my Winter Shop full of everything you could ever need to stay warm AND chic this winter.

Be sure to check it out and let me know your favorite pieces!

    Ashley, you are a dear! You have been through so much and now going to care for your grandma! Bless your heart, sweet girl! Anxiety can take hold of us for so many reasons and like you said, it is not even always obvious what the source is. But yours is understandable. Take this one step at a time. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen that movie, “What About Bob?” with Bill Murray and Richard Dreyfuss. What really stuck with me was the idea of “baby steps.” It is hard to care for aging family members, but you are doing the right thing. Your outfit is the bomb! Love the red and gray. – Amy
