Fashion Flash Thanksgiving Week Edition


Greetings and Salutations, Gentle Reader. This is Thanksgiving week and the start of the holiday season. Husband, son and myself will be celebrating in our little Bubble of Three, with Daisy Adair, our kitty. It kind of sucks that there will be no family gatherings, Christmas Eve blowout at our place but we have decided to stay apart, this year so that hopefully, by this time, next year we can be planning to get together with family and friends and celebrate getting through the pandemic and moving forward, happier and healthy. It's a small price to pay, in the grand scheme of things. 

This week, it is my pleasure to host Fashion Flash. I admit, I'm not blogging much. My mental health has been not as great as it could be and I spend time I'm supposed to be taking pictures, editing them, writing and promoting on social media curled up with my tablet, alternately binging whatever mindless distractions I can find and crying. I need to shake it off, I hope that I can. It didn't even occur to me how far I've spiraled until I typed this out. Should I delete? Do I need to be bleating about my "struggles?" So many people have it so much worse than I do. Husband and son are both still working, we have a roof, what we need, even some wants plus a bit to share with others, as well. I honestly thought that this was all no big deal but I guess the deal is bigger than I was letting myself admit.  And yeah, I'm leaving the bleating in place, this is my blog and while I try to keep it happy and upbeat in my little corner of the Internet, I also keep it honest and real, so... there you have it. 

Anyway, I hope that you skipped all of that above and are ready to dive in and enjoy this week's Fashion Flash!
