Meg the Grand's Guide to Changing Your Life in 3 Steps

MY FRIENDS!  I have missed you.  March was quite possibly one of the craziest months of my life, so I hope you'll forgive my absence of posts and interaction.

In my past, whenever I craved a change, I did one of three things:

1. I move apartments/change the scenery around me.


2. I cut my hair.  Drastically.


3. Started a relationship.

This step is a little different this time around.

Rob and I really gave it our best when trying to make it work, but sometimes, it just doesn't work out like you want.  And that's ok.  We're ok.  We'll probably be friends once a bit of time has passed, which is a relief, because I treasure him as a person and I want us both to be happy.

In the meantime, I have an epic support network.  And mustaches.
OK!  Now that I'm getting settled in my new place, expect some sewing posts (and my NYC recap) soon!  I've been wearing my Minoru jacket everywhere, so it was definitely worth the twenty hours of tears.

Much love to all of you, and thank you for being so patient with me :)

XOXO,
Meg

  25. Sorry to hear about your crazy month. If virtual warm fuzzies from a complete stranger a gazillion miles away are of any help, then you have them in abundance. But from what I can tell, it takes a lot to take down a Grand! You have a rocking hair style and I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing all about your adventures in this new chapter.
