Finding My Way Again

I know it feels like it's been forever since I posted anything. I've been through a lot in the last 18 months and I feel like I've spent this time finding my way again. So what has changed you ask?? I got divorced, my father passed away, and I moved...and I've been finding way my ever since.

1. I have no ill will against my ex. We decided mutually that we shouldn't be together any more. It was such a long process, but I'm glad that it's over now. It was a very stressful time, and I'm still trying to change back to my maiden name.

2. About a month after we decided to split my father passed away. That was a rough time for me and my family. I didn't have a good relationship with my father and the realization that that would never change was hard to accept and deal with.

3. I moved to Austin which wasn't a huge move, but definitely a good one. Now I'm only 20 mins from work, and I don't have to do the IH-35 commute any longer. When I moved here, I spent the first day sitting on the floor on a towel. I had no furniture and only some of my clothes. I didn't even have my cat.


Through all of this I've been trying to find myself again. I've spent many hours just learning how to be a single woman in her late 30s. Figuring out what it means to do things for myself and how to cook for one. I think my most favorite part of my journey so far has been connecting with my cat and seeing her grow. She is meeting so many people and making new friends.

Just as I have been changing, so will my blog. Please stay with me and join me as I continue on this journey. I see fun and exciting things to come.


What changes have you made recently?

Sable and Sage Update

Oh my! I am sad to say that it has been almost one year since my last blog post. This past year has been crazy, interesting, and tough, but I'm glad to say that I have grown, matured, and persevered through it all. I'm hoping to be able to start posting regularly again once I find my camera and a photographer. 

All of my life's experiences have made me who I am, and I am grateful each of them no matter how hard they were. I am a stronger woman for everything I have experienced. I can't wait to share what I have gone through with you all. Here's just a small bit of some of the changes in my life.





I would love to hear what changes have you been going through in your life
and how you handle them?

Sporadic Me

Hi everyone! I know it's been a crazy long time since my last post. I have been overwhelmingly busy with work and school. I have good intentions of blogging, but that has yet to happen.

Life has been hard these last few months. I was finally released by my doctor two weeks ago to start working out again. Working out is always a stress reliever for me, and as you can imagine not working out for two years has made me extremely stressed out.  My car has been overheating the last few months and my mechanic can't figure out why. Agghh!! If you live in Texas, you know how hot (100+) it has been. Our AC went out last week...so very hot!!! We have to replace the whole unit and duct work. Agghh!! Lots of other things are going on that I won't mention, but can you say tough times?

On a good note, I had a job interview today! Hence the awesome outfit for today. I contemplated wearing a suit, but I didn't really want to do that. So, I started looking through my closet to see what I could find. I wanted something professional, but not too stuffy. Something lady-like and pretty. I think I nailed it! I love the different shades of blue! Navy is my signature color and it's hard to wear during the summer, because it's so dark. The lighter shades of blue in the jacket and necklace really change the look of this outfit making it summer worthy.




Dress {Banana Republic Outlet}
Jacket {Ann Taylor-Goodwill}

What is your ideal interview outfit?
