I know, ya’ll. I can’t believe it’s happening either. I have come out of my hibernation cave and I am actually posting a plus size outfit on the blog!

Ok truth be told, it’s not my best outfit. I forgot a purse. I didn’t zip up my booties, and in half the pictures we took this day my bra was showing. But ya’ll… I am dressed. Outside of my house. It’s a big day.

Have I mentioned I’ve got SAD? Yeah, they actually named a mental illness so well that it’s acronym is SAD. It’s pretty impressive. Seasonal Affective Disorder is my nemesis.

I am a HAPPY PERSON GOD DAMN IT. I love my life. I find joy in small things. I live my best life. I am a fucking pleasure to be around!

Until the sun disappears.

Then I can’t get out of bed, I don’t want to eat, I alienate myself, feel like my body is turning against me, cry, cry, cry some more…

I’m 33. I’ve been struggling with this since my mid twenties. And every year when Spring hits I still feel like I need a full on celebration and pat on the back for making it out of my Winter fog. So this is my celebration. I did it. WE DID IT.

The good news? Every year I understand my needs and become more able to cope. This year I did pretty dang good. I knew I needed to take it easy with work, and I honored that. I’ve also become very used to going outside when it’s frigid if it’s sunny. If there is sunshine, I force myself outside to feel it on my skin. I’ve started loving those Winter days when the sun is peaking out from the icy trees. It’s kind of pretty… I guess.

So here’s my celebratory outfit post. Welcome, Spring. I’ve been waiting for you.

I can’t wait to share more outfits with all of you. I’m sorry I disappear a bit in the Winter. I hope that when you need to take care of yourself you do. It’s so important to our mental health. What have you been up to? Fill me in!!!

    Great post!
    I hope spring continues for you! Sadly I live in one of the many places where Mother Nature can’t make up her mind. XD
    And I totally feel you on the SAD (best acronym ever XD). It’s only been a few years since I realized I suffer from it, so I’m still learning how to deal.
    Anyway, Happy Spring! Looking forward to seeing more from you!

    My daughter is looking for a dress she may substitute as a wedding dress. She needs a four X. I believe she would like the pretty floral dress you are debuting fo spring dresses or something similar. No wedding except justice of the peace, but every gal should have a new dress for even such a simple ceremony.

    Do you have a link to that dress? It is beautiful and the link doesn’t seem to work.
