Blow Fish

I find melodramatic prose comforting right now.

Imagine a shipwreck in the fog, but everyone makes it safely to a large rock. I feel like that rock, my family is standing on my back, regaining their composure and feeling safe. But I’m not a rock, I am a giant blow fish, and I am quickly expelling air. My kids and husband are losing their footing, bumbling about, completely confused with their inability to find solid ground on my now permeable flesh. Sometimes I just have to let the air out.

Life continues, friends, be it ever messy and challenging. I did convince the kids that frozen bananas blended with a dollop of whipped cream tastes better than ice cream, so at least there was one win in my corner.

  1. Because these are second hand wedding dresses you’re looking through, NOT newly designed ones.
    They can be worn for a wedding and they are perfectly appropriate.

    The one shoulder wedding dresses lend a high end appeal to your ceremony and have become a
    rage since celebrities started wearing them.
