Wow I have not written a blog post in over a MONTH. This recovery with my arm has been so much more intensive than I initially thought. I am in physical therapy three times a week and it’s absolute torture but I know it’s necessary for my recovery. I definitely did not think that it would be almost six weeks later and my blog would still be on hold. The transition back to work has gone smoothly, but has been time consuming. It has pulled me away from my blog because I get home at night and am just absolutely exhausted. I have been going to bed at 9 PM every night. I know my body needs the rest, so I am trying to give it what it needs and the blog has definitely taken a backseat because of my recovery.
I usually love when my life is being pulled in a million directions but recently I’ve been so stressed and overwhelmed I feel like I haven’t been giving anything in my life the attention it deserves. I think a lot of people struggle with that in all aspects of life and it can be used as a good learning moment on how to manage stress and responsibilities. I am eternally grateful for all of my friends and family who have made this recovery an easier transition than it would have been alone. I know I am so lucky that my injuries were what they are and it could have been so much worse. I’m taking all of this day-by-day and I’m doing the best I can for every outlet in my life.
One of the hardest things has been not working out because to me that is such a stress reliever and I need it for my sanity. My physical therapist has suggested that I not workout until I am further along in my recovery, which has been absolutely driving me crazy! But I’m doing my best to follow directions. I still get in trouble for not doing my exercises correctly. He told me yesterday that there is a slight possibility I may be ready to run next week so keep your fingers crossed I get cleared for that!
Last weekend I was lucky enough to fly home and spend some time with my sweet family for my younger brother’s high school graduation. It was such a nice weekend spent on the eastern shore of Maryland at our lake house and I loved getting to catch-up with my parents.
The outfit I wore to my brother’s graduation has been one of my absolute favorites this summer. This pink skirt is so fun to twirl in and I just love the slit in it as well. I am always pulled towards a good skirt or dress that moves when you walk. The midi skirt/dress trend has also never been more in style!
I thought I would round up some of my favorite midi skirts in honor of Friday Five that I know has not happened in quite a minute. I think this trend would be so cute on a summer wedding or for engagement photos. Really you could wear to any event this summer or even on vacation!

I hope you all have lovely weekend plans. I just shot a ton of content with my best friend Merissa yesterday (you can check out her photography website here) and I can’t wait to share all the content with you next week. I am going to be writing posts all weekend long!
