a short hiatus...

I want to start this post of by saying how awesome you all are! I am very impressed that no battles were waged due to the last post I wrote. It dealt with a controversial issue, which tends to always make people get a lil' fired up...so I knew in posting it that it could lead to some crazy comment business. BUT it so did not. Why? Because y'all are awesomespice...that is why! Did I disagree with some of my readers? Yep. Did I agree with some? Yep. Did you all have slightly different opinions? Of course. Did anyone get feisty and freak out with any mean/hateful comments? No way! One of the many reasons I love my little blog is because I love the people who take the time to read it and I love it even more when everyone can talk like grown-ups. So...this may be the green light I needed to delve into my love of politics and important world issues. I was avoiding it because I do not want negativity here but that does not look like it will be a problem (do not panic! i solemnly swear that this blog will still remain silly and sarcastic the majority of times. it will also still involve a Robert Pattinson photo at least a few times a week!) Yay!

Another thing I want to mention is a super special thank you to blog friend Lauren Elizabeth. She has the cutest blog...if you haven't read her make sure you do! I was the lucky winner of her giveaway she hosted a few weeks ago. She promised a box of some of her favorite things and today I went to the post office and picked up my prize. Let me tell you Lauren delivered...it contained bags/bars of candy; yummy snacks; the cutest pair of tights ever; a to-go coffee container that she made; and many other awesome things. It gave me a definite smile today...which I needed. Thanks again Lauren! I included a picture of the loot I won!
On a different note I will be taking a couple days off of the blog (not that this news will shatter any of your lives) I just wanted to let you all know that I may be missing in action for a few! As my real life pals know and some of my blog/twitter pals know my Dad lost his battle with cancer yesterday morning. So...obviously my entire family has quite a bit to deal with at this moment. I also do not feel very witty at the moment...and what good is a blog if it can't make you chuckle at least a little!

I also want to say thanks to everyone who has e-mailed, called, text, or sent me their love through some insanely sweet tweets (holla! rhyme). I have amazing real life pals and amazing blog buddies. You ALL win at life.

Alright, blog-land peace out for a few!

Sending you the most amount of hugs, thoughts, and prayers you could ever imagine. I feel like I'm lost since I don't have twitter so I didn't know. 8( Maybe I should get on that...

Take as much time as you need. I'll miss you while you are gone!! <3<3<3

Girl you are just amazing. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through. I can tell you are strong and brave. If I had been in your situation I don't know how I would have the strength to blog or do anything at all after what happened. Like I said a few times, you and your family will be kept in my prayers for sure. Keep smiling, keep being strong and keep being awesome, even though that will never change :). Love ya!!

Ivy said...

No rushing back to us. We will be here when you get back.
I am sending my loving thoughts your way. YOU win at life.
Cheers

Alexandria- NO ONE is going to judge you for leaving. ever. You're a beautiful, smart, witty girl, and your tweets and posts constantly make me smile. I'll be praying and hoping for the best for your family. YOU ROCK. :D

Mar said...

I am so terribly sorry to hear about your father. Cancer really is an awful, sad and heartbreaking disease and unfortunately, we still, all too often lose people who are important to us because of it.
You just take all the time you need, everybody here will understand that!
I'm not a praying kind of girl, but I will definitely keep you in my thoughts and send you courage, love and strength!

The way you keep yourself together in this post.. I can tell you're such a strong person. I seriously admire that. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, and I'm sure everyone understands that you need some time.
And that giveaway win looks so awesome :)

Ivy said...

Still thinking about you. I see your tweets and I see your smiling picture and I hope that you are finding a happy place to reside in. You are a beautiful light. Keep that chin up young lady!
Cheers
