One final glance, one final step, one final dance with him

Happy 70th Birthday Daddy! You are very missed! In memory of my father who would have celebrated his birthday with us today.

I have struggled all weekend with what I wanted to blog. I have all these images going on in my head, but I just couldn't bring anything together. I did put some things together with the help of my husband and daughter but I was so frustrated by it. I even got off the computer and laid down. It wasn't until I was doing some work for the Pre Release Gatcha Garden, taking some pictures for our Sunday Park Sales and I looked at the date and it HIT me... I know why I've been restless and out of sorts, why nothing was coming together. Today, my father would have been 70. With the recent two events Fantasy Faire 2014 and Fashion For Life 2014 you would think it would have hit me sooner. But I think mostly I was in denial. It's been an emotionally rough week. 

On Saturday, I took the day and took my 15 year old daughter to the zoo. She couldn't remember ever going. That was one of the greatest memories I had of my childhood. Though the zoo was very underwhelming I enjoyed the time with my daughter. So anyways.. 

Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
Spin me around ‘til I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me
And I knew for sure I was loved

-{ZOZ}- has created these super adorable wedges called Bella Wedges. These are the Sand colored and they're available @ Designer Circle until July 4th the other color available is called Candy, which is a very soft lavender color. (After that they'll be available in world at -{ZOZ}-  Mainstore.

If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
How I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again

 .ploom has come out with this beautiful long hair, side bang called Holli. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this. This is close to my natural hair color that's why I went with the deep rich brown for my blog today instead of my normal black that I usually use. This is available @ SummerFest from June 22nd to July 13. I haven't yet made it to this event (not because I haven't tried!!!! Right now it's really full, but hopefully soon I'll be able to get there.)

The dress is a former design by FBD which is going through a change over to MOoH! but you can get this Vintage dress for 60L @ MOoH! I love this dress, it's soft, dreamy, and sexy without being overly sexy you know what I mean?

Every beautiful outfit needs to be set off with the right polish correct? -{ZOZ}- has created these very dreamy, lacey polishes called Tiffany that also match the socks I am showing you. The polish comes in 12 fabulous colors. The socks shades are: Cobalt, Merlot, Orchid, Pearl, and Purple. These are made for the Slink feet HIGH (not included) and you need to wear the shoe base included with them.

Cobalt, Pearl, Orchid (the last 2 are the same color just the lightening makes the 1st and 3rd look different)

I know when it's all said and done, my mom will join him soon. She's pretty ticked off she's not there now with him wherever he is but someday she will and I won't have to hear her grieve for him any longer. Yes we will miss her, but she will be where she belongs and wants to be. 

Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never, ever end
‘Cause I’d love, love, love
To dance with my father again
Sometimes I’d listen outside her door
And I’d hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me

I pray for her even more than me
I know I’m praying for much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know you don’t do it usually
But dear Lord she’s dying
To dance with my father again
Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream
