Heart Surgery Anniversary
Many of my friends and followers knew about my surgery when it happened a year ago today or 6 months ago today when I posted this article explaining what had happened and why I was starting A Case of the Motivational Mondays. During that post I showcased myself wearing tropical shorts because I bought them when I was not fully recovered physically and couldn't see how well they truly fit. Today I want to showcase this Bernie Dexter dress and heart necklace! Here's why:

This necklace is a touch more silly! I saw it in January on ModCloth and just thought it would be too funny if I purchased it. There's a lot of heart necklaces out there in jewelry land, but none that look like a heart next to an EKG chart or heart monitor of any kind! Knowing that this warped anniversary was the following month I knew I had to have it! (I admittedly have a sick/ironic/dark/cathartic sense of humor a lot of the time).
So there you have it! One year down and here's the fashion to symbolize it! This is the last time I'll commemorate this day on this blog, and probably in my life, at least with any fanfare. I believe in acknowledging an important day in one's history, but I also believe in not rehashing things after a certain point too. I imagine I'll have more hiccups with my heart health that'll land me in the ER again- sadly sooner than later as if I make it past 2015 without a major SVT attack it'll be something of a miracle- and I may mention those events on IG or here on the blog depending on funny photo-ops or announcements that I may go MIA for a few days while I recover...but I do not wish to 'remember' this day anymore. It's time to move on.
That said, since Case of the (Motivational) Mondays came out of both wanting to not have this sucky thing that happened to me be in vain as well as to not make anyone feel my life was sunnier than it was and feel bad about their lives in comparison (as social media can do that do people and posting smiling pictures in pretty dresses can easily feed into that syndrome!) I want to share one last related to my health troubles photo:
I hope everyone reading this post finds themselves in good health today, as I am super grateful to be in a way better position than I was a year ago! Thank-you for your readership (it's just over my 'blog-a-versary' but I have yet to do a post to commemorate that) and kind words, comments, emails, and so forth from this past year. Fashion blogging has been an unexpected bright spot in my life from this past year that I sorely needed! XOXO
