Hi. Remember Me?

It's been forever. I've missed blogging tremendously. I'll fill you in later as to where I've been.
A lot of things have changed around here. This is good. Somewhere along the way I realized that I wasn't living life the way I should be, or could be. I'm working hard to build the life that I want to live. This has included paying better attention to my own needs, finding balance in life, and not just running ragged caring for the boys. Cue organized bedside below. I've been more indulgent with the little things and actually taking the time to enjoy them.(balenciaga candle all time fave: here)

Here I am (incase you forgot what I look like), headed to a lunch event/fw12 show with a group of 9 other women to meet Nanette Lepore. Lucky me. Such a fun afternoon.
Tomorrow is my birthday and as a gift to me, from me, I'm hoping to connect much more regularly, with all of you, here. I'm headed out now to pick up cupcakes so that I can eat them for breakfast tomorrow. That's what we do on birthdays, right? Oh, it's good to be back! xoxo

Let me be the first to say, welcome back. I missed you terribly my friend! You look SO adorable, as always. Happy birthday, Erica!! May your day (and year) be filled with love, joy and lots of dessert and pretty little things. Praying for you friend- that you will be content with how you're living and truly live fully...and enjoy it along the way! :) xoxo M

Cupcakes (especially Birthday ones) are the breakfast of champions - that's what I always say! You look fabulous by the way!

Erica said...

Happy early birthday. May your cupcake breakfast taste fabulous & your cake dessert taste even sweeter! :-)

Good to see you back. I wondered but never wanted to ask as I think it's rude and usually a perfectly good explanation why one would stop. I am hosting a giveaway on mine in celebration of 2 yrs so feel free to stop by & enter.

Well, I am so glad you're back! And double Yay! I'm not the only one who goes missing while trying to find a way to enjoy the real world now and again. I must follow you on instagram. BTW you look absolutely stunning in that dress. Was it one of Nanette Lepore's?

The Zhush said...

So glad you are back! Instagram is great, but we need more!:)
My birthday is Tuesday...I think picking up cupcakes the night before is the best idea I've heard in awhile...stealing that!

happy birthday to you! happy birthday to you! happy birthday dear erica! happy birthday to you! God bless you on your birthday and always! I missed you in the blog world because you are a special, sweet, sincere person that really shares from the heart. I understand taking a break. I have 3 boys and a full time teaching job and cleaning duties around the house that keep me very busy plus giving attention to the hubby. It's difficult to keep up with a blog sometimes. i'm glad that you feel refreshed and I've enjoyed following you on instagram in the meantime! XOXO hugs and kisses, Desi
