True Beauty




Hi everybody,
This week has been a doozy! I've been sick, my Dad is in hospital again, and today we have a bit of snow and the temp is currently in the 20's. Brrr.....
I think that most of us, especially at this time in our lives, can sometimes get so overwhelmed that it can be tough to decide which way to move next. That's when the blog family that we build can really be a great support and outlet for the moans and groans of growing up and transitioning into middle womanhood.
I've also heard that 'whining' isn't a cool thing to do in many blog circles. But I also know that  a great form of style can also be found in the way we handle crisis and adversity. We all go through stuff and I'm really glad to have a group of kick-ass chicks who are interested in more than just what I am wearing on a particular day. Who can relate. 
Who are also on the same life journey that I am. 
So, here's a big thanks, to all of you guys for just being there, and who give me 
the courage and grace to keep on rockin'. True beauties!

 I'm all bundled up and ready to chill out, so
Have a beautiful weekend!
xXx

I love you Reva- sending you good thoughts! Hope you can handle all the ups and downs of life- I do know you sure look good doing it. Hugs!

Oh My Dear Reva. You are so right. At times when you just can't deal with visitors it is so nice to be able to check in with your blog friends at ANY TIME. Right? Plus bloggers tend to be a little bit more sensitive and creative than the average person. And it is such a supportive community! So go ahead and vent! One or the other of us have been there and we will happily jump in to give you some TLC. By the way, you are looking pretty gorgeous in your knits!

I love the color combination here Reva. A perfect example of your true beauty and uniqueness! I hope your dad can hang in there and have competent caregivers around him, along with a loving family.

I hope everything is ok, and that you are feeling better soon. It's difficult to keep your chin up when things start getting on top of you, but you look fantastic and I adore that hat. x

hi Reva, today I wrote about my "challenging" week and how I handle it...pop on over if you get a chance. I would handle my irritations better with a gorgeous pair of boots like you have on!! I hope you and your Dad feel better soon...stay warm!

It's nice to see you back, and looking great in your sassy shorts and kickass boots! I hope you're feeling better soon. It seems to have been a challenging year for a number of my favourite women bloggers but I"m hoping that 2013 brings more creativity, strength and inspiration.

I don't think you are whining at all. Just sharing Reva's world with your readers.
Sorry you are having a touch go of things lately..hang tough.

there's not a thing wrong with wanting to share your feelings on your blog. If anyone has a problem with it, tell 'em to go bite bubbles.

I wish your father you're better and happier and peaceful. I really like your outfit, it's fun, bold and beautiful. The sweater and hat are wonderful. The boots, precious.

Aaaaaaaah it is wonderful to see you under any circumstances, I do hope you start to feel better soon and I'm sorry to hear your Dad has been so poorly. Big hugs to you lovely, xoxoxo

I hope your Dad is better soon, Reva, and you too. The blogging community we're part of is truly awesome and I too feel lucky to be a part of it. And hey: it's your blog, and you can whine if you want to! (But you're so not whining; I think you're very real and inspirational!). Xoxo

Hi Reva! I was so thrilled to find your blog (by way of Citizen Rosebud). I love your style and I immediately adopted your "beauty routine" in the sidebar. I totally agree with living in the present. I needed that yesterday. Really did. I look forward to seeing what you are up to every day.

Friends,
Lynn Dylan
