In true Elizabeth fashion, 2012 has started out with quite the bang. From unforeseen personal drama (yeah this crap didn't used to happen, wtf is up with that?) to mono (hello feeling bad), this year is already more than I can take.
Yet somehow in the insanity of it all I had a breakthrough with my parents. Or rather they "broke through" to me. In a rather not-like-my-parents style, they "cut to the chase." For the first time I can remember since late 2008, they refused to hold back and told me like it was/is. Because the subject is not quite ready for public opinion, I'll refrain from further explanation for the moment, but let's just say my parents blatantly told me what several friends have been telling me for months -- enough is enough.
And that was enough. Hearing it from them confirmed my suspicions. I knew my friends had been right all along. I knew better along the way. But I never gave into my gut feelings. I always fought them. Go figure, doing what's simple doesn't always work for me. Heck, I said I "hit a wall" on this very matter back in July and I've yet to remedy it.
But like I said, enough is enough. The time has come. I think.
All of that said, I made a fun Lilly Pulitzer desktop wallpaper for my gorgeous iMac. It actually complements the Lilly desktop calendar for January, so you can proudly display them side-by-side. Check it out:
