I've been wearing this coat by Kling more than any other garment this season. It's perfect for our relatively light winters. I'm sure most people in the northern hemisphere are looking forward to spring, but I was glad to have one real snow this winter. Most if it melted right away, but I enjoyed taking photos in it.

Shortly after these photos, however, I came down with a very nasty flu. I hope you have managed to avoid it this year because it is not pleasant. When I can manage it, I drag myself to the couch. My husband and I are working our way through Inspector George Gently on Netflix, after having recently finished Sherlock. I feel like a lazy slob, but there's not much else one can do with the flu.

I thought I should update you. Recently, I wrote about my experience with depression and anxiety attacks. A lot of my anxiety centers around health concerns, but despite this winter sickness I haven't had a full-blown panic attack in weeks. The medication - minus some pesky side-effects - seems to be really working for me and makes it easier for me to do the therapy. Every day has its challenges, and I often have crumby moments, but for the first time since October I feel mostly like myself. For the first time in ages I am (for the most-part) optimistic about the future, and I'm very grateful for that. I'm not sure how I will be tomorrow or next week, but right now - even with the flu - I am okay.

Stay well!

  2. Oh I hope all that flu goes away soon! I love how pale your skin looks in these photos, in contrast to your lipstick, coat and cap (which I love, by the way!) ♥ You look like you were born from the snow, which is absolutely ethereal.

    In respect to the panic attacks, I'm so glad you are doing okay. I hope sending you good thoughts would help you fight off your anxiety. If it does, I'm sending you loads right now.

    Alive as Always

  4. Yikes. I'm glad you're feeling better. I had a similar mind nosedive when I got really sick this past year so I have the utmost empathy and sympathy. Very glad to hear you're feeling somewhat better. xo

  5. Your photographs are always so calming. I love looking at them. I'm glad to hear you are feeling a bit better recently (minus the flu). It feels quite comforting to know that things can get better, as long as we try the best we can. I know it's not easy, but I hope you feel proud with the steps you are taking to get well.
