life update | a certain darkness is needed to see the stars.

I had my third Iron Transfusion yesterday which left me feeling pretty ill and achy to say the least. Matthew was here with me which helped immensely, he held my hand and rubbed my back. He is such a comfort to me in every way. Unfortunately he had to leave this morning to go back to Long Island. I hate saying goodbye. It is not easy seeing the person you love the most in the world only once a week. It’s hard. It hurts. The only thing that keeps me going is the strength of our love and the hope that we will be able to afford our own place very soon. I believe that slowly but surely things are looking up from here.

I wasn’t able to do my “What I’m Loving Lately” blog post on Saturday because I just haven’t been feeling good and I just didn’t even have the energy to type out a blog post. I will be doing one this weekend and it will be full of a lot of new and lovely things so keep an eye out for that. I am also doing a blog post on my favorite books for Fall over at my dear friend Cristina’s blog and I was asked to write for The Vogue Vegan on every Wednesday of the month about my favorite Vegan beauty products. I have some great projects happening right now and it feels wonderful… now all I need is for my body to feel wonderful and all is good in my world!

It was about 50 degrees out the other day and the sun was hiding behind the trees. There was that beautiful autumn glow outside that I love so much. I decided to get bundled up and go on a little stroll with my camera and added lenses in hand. I ended up getting some shots that I am really proud of and that really symbolize fall for me.

Matthew brought me back these beautiful earrings from Paris. I love them.

“It is always what I have already said: always the wish that you may find patience enough in yourself to endure, and simplicity enough to believe; that you may acquire more and more confidence in that which is difficult, and in your solitude among others. and for the rest, let life happen to you. believe me: life is right, in any case.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke
