Just Breathe...

Last week was rough for me, personally and professionally. I had a lot of thinking to do and some big decisions to make. 
Peperes procedure went well, I want to thank everyone , from the bottom of my heart, for their thoughts and prayers. 
Otherwise, in true Meg fashion, I didn't put any effort into life. 
My outfits were sweats and over-sized sweaters.  
My hair was never done. 
I avoided socializing, in the real world and in the blog world. 
And I ate of my feelings. 

But I think I'm okay now. I think. 
As always, I'm a work in progress. I've got a little more perspective and I think a lot of that has to do with catching up on some blogs. 

This morning I woke up to the most beautiful of Sunday mornings with a determination that I will turn my frown upside down. I brewed up some coffee and I spent over two hours (what my battery life allowed, because I could have gone just perusing the blog world.
I came across some posts about the struggles of life and such. 
Reading these stories made me realize:
**its ok** 
Everything will work out.
Its not the end of the world.
Sacrifices have to be made sometimes in order for life to come together.
And most importantly...
I don't have to please everyone. 
Just ME.

So, with all that love and inspiration (thank you friends, old & new) I put in an effort on the blog again.

 You'll notice a few changes. 
First, I'm proud to announce that PolkaDots&Lace now has a Facebook page!

Also note that I'm starting to venture into the world of sponsoring. 
If anyone has any advice for me, please, I'm all ears. 
For now, lets just swap buttons... Til I know what I'm doing! ;)

Until next time loves...


  1. I've definitely been there. I'm sorry you had a rough week, but welcome back! I wish I could be more helpful in terms of sponsorship and all that jazz, but I'm pretty new to the blogging world as well. I've decided I need a button by the end of the week so when that happens maybe we can swap?


  2. Hey girl! Don't feel alone....we are all a work in progress (and kudos to you for acknowledging that). No one is perfect (no matter how green and lush and wonderful their grass seems on the outside;)! I hope whatever it is you are going through passes quickly. All these life experiences only make us stronger...and they also make us more humble (we can empathize with know?) Anyways, just wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog! Would you like to follow each other on GFC, Bloglovin, etc.?


Thanks for stopping by PolkaDots&Lace! It really means a lot to me. Leave some messages... keep it positive! <3
