Waiting for a Sale and Then... It Happens

Happy Saturday Dear Readers,

I had an emotionally draining week with Dr.'s visits and explaining treatment, diagnosis, and prognosis countless times to various people... I understand in a new way how cancer sort of becomes an identity...

I'm home safe and sound, and resting (hopefully I will be refreshed by tonight's dinner with friends).

Imagine my happiness when I found a dress I've been window shopping for a few months now On Sale! It is the exact amount of retail therapy I needed!

Athleta is the newest member of the Banana Republic family. I fell in love with this pocketed casual sundress, but couldn't bring myself to pay $70 for a cotton dress from a brand that's relatively new to me. However, I didn't think twice before ordering this fun little number once on sale!

And just for good measure I ordered this one as well....

1. Safe round trip travel
2. Beautiful weather that was a refreshing break from the Texas heat
3. Two medical school interview invitations
4. Successfully working remotely
5. Coming home to Mr. Preppy Boyfriend, three happy puppies, and my now furnished patio

Love both of those dresses! I just stumbled upon your blog. What a great idea ~ I think we should all find our *graces* in each day.

I'm so very sorry to hear of your struggles ~ I've gone through it with my parents as well.

Best wishes for a brighter day~
