I'm sorry I have neglected you all this past week. I have been living in my real world. A world filled with imagination, music, dancing, Sesame Street and other animations. It is also full of unkind realities, forgiveness, love and new beginnings. I have spent the week trying to deal with all of those aspects of my world. I have been struggling with depression for a while now and didn't even understand it. I hope that I am coming out of this ugliness and back into my self. I feel a little closer to that fun loving woman that I use to be. Not that I am really there yet but at least I am working on it!

My birthday is in 2 weeks! I will be, uh ummm, 35 years old although if you ask me on any normal day I will tell you 27ish lol. I don't really have so many issues with turning 35 years old this year. In years past I have struggled with getting older. Now I can say that I don't feel 35 so thats ok. Not to mention I have had numerous people telling me lately how good I look and well you know that never hurts a girls self image!
Here is a collage of how I have been spending my days!


  1. Hey Candace! Those are some cool pictures. Is that a real tattoo? I will be 38 in a couple of weeks. That's kinda cool our birthdays are close together and our little one's birthdays are close together.

    I am bipolar, so I understand depression. I hope you are feeling better.

  2. I'm with you! i have good days and bad days... and sometimes really bad days! Just remember how much you are loved by your family and the good Lord. That love always helps.

    And b-days... I turned 33 this year! It isn't bad except for I always thought i would have like three kids by now and I have ZERO! Life isn't always what we want or expect. Dang it!

  3. What sweet photos! Love one of them, she looked just like one of my daughters when she was a toddler. :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog - I remember the smurfs. Have you watched them now that you're all grown up? It's so funny to go back and watch stuff now that I have my own kids and experience it through their eyes. :)

  4. I hope you had a Happy Birthday. Sorry I missed it, just getting caught up in your blog. Depression is painful, but it sounds like your getting through it fine. I'm here for you!


Y'all come back now ya here!
