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.

Back to Black

Lately I've been drawn to black. I'm not sure how or why it happened it just did. Maybe it's because I've seen so many white interiors on Pinterest for the last few years that I am looking for balance. Or maybe I'm just in a new phase of my life where I see the sexiness and/or elegance of black. Like this pendant light for example. That just screams sexy to me. And what about the black storage units with the beautiful wood floors? Nice no? I can't even talk about the bath.......

So what do you think about black in your decor?
