Into the Trenches

Trench Coat Vest with Shorts and Suspender Tights

As I enjoy this time before my 4th and last chemo treatment next week, I’m faced with not only excitement, but also many worries and fears about my future. It may seem like things are finally “over”, but there’s still a laundry list of things I’ll need to deal with such as hormone treatments, residual side effects such as fatigue, and overall just trying to feel like myself again. I met with the doctor this week and went in thinking this would be an easy visit and that he would congratulate me on almost being done.

Star Wars Bodysuit Outfit

Happy New Year!! Ok, I’m about 6 days late, but better late than never. So besides this amazing Star Wars bodysuit that I’m wearing, you might also notice I’m wearing a wig in today’s outfit!

Of course, filming for over 9 hours was extremely exhausting and this morning I woke up feeling like I couldn’t move – well, barely enough to turn on my phone and watch an episode of The Clone Wars. However, once I dragged myself out of bed, I quickly realized it was May 4th and was super excited to celebrate Star Wars once again! I’m not sure how one is supposed to celebrate Star Wars Day these days, but all I know is that the force was definitely with me this weekend and especially today. Happy Star Wars Day and May the Force Be With You!
