For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

A few of my favorite looks for Fall

Gisele B√ľndchen
I am loving these trench coats especially the leopard one. Talk about awesome when paired with jeans and a sweater/shirt combo.

I love the two tone jacket paired with the shorts and tights! Not to mention that awesome bag!!
Ok I admit it, I love rubber boots and I wear them all winter long. Doesn't matter with what, jeans, leggings or tights, they always work for me. Plus my feet never get wet or cold as I have a pair that are winterized. Oh yah! 
gray cableknit sweater
Can anyone live without cable knit sweaters? Uh, I don't think so....especially when it's -20 outside. This year I also have a little crush on plaid. Yup, I said it, a total crush on plaid and although I love the subtle plaid paired with a cable knit sweater, this season I went all out and bought a pair of flaming red plaid tights. I still can't believe it.....I don't think my husband has recovered yet, I'll keep you posted.
