day of mourning

dress: vintage from New Bohemia in Austin

This week is only half over and already it has been an emotional rollercoaster. I have been up, down, high, low and just a hot mess of emotion. It was a spirit day at my school, Clone Day. So i told me class that I would be wearing all black if they wanted to be a clone with me. They are such adorable little darlings. Half the class greeted me with giant, proud smiles, wearing all black this morning.

The all black, mourning colors turned out to be prophetic. Yesterday I was told I would not be rehired at my school next year. That is the easy answer, the situation is a whole lot more complicated (as most things are). So the all black suited my bleak, dreary, depressed mood. Thank goodness for my amazing co-workers who built me up so much with their sympathy, kind words, and support. I was showered with it until I could help but feel a hundred times better.


  1. I am so sorry! The education situation is so dire these days...and it is disheartening to hear that good people are being let go. My heart goes out to you.

  2. I'm sorry about you job! It's so tough these days :0/ On the other hand, you look so beautiful in these photos. Especially the second one, your booty looks great in that dress :0)

  3. i agree with the booty comment! i'm sorry about the job, love, but i must say, you are radiant in the black 'mourning' dress. <3
