The way of life goes….just when you think you can't handle anymore something else smacks you in the face. Then something else….then other people's something else……until you are literally a ball of nerves waiting for the next event to make you stress eat yourself into oblivion…..right now I'm that ball of nerves……and I'm really hoping that something gives soon, because it has to.


  1. Eep, hope things get better for you soon, lady. You'd never guess from these photos that you're a ball of nerves (except for maybe that last one, but in the most hilarious and adorable way!) Loving this outfit - so edgy and unique! You're rocking it.

  2. Just commenting on your blog for the first time, but I hope things look up for you. I certainly know what it's like to get hit with one challenge after the other!! Anyway, love your look. Great shots!:)

  3. Brooke - you are an amazing woman! You are strong, smart, and talented! Know that God only gives you what you can handle. Even though you may not think you can in the end you will be a stronger person for it. I have gone through this many times in my life with not only my stress but the stress of others. Just once did a break and my family ran to my support and God pulled back some. Keep your chin up and remember one day at a time and if that's too much do one hour at a time. Find the little things that make you happy and hold onto those! You have support!

    BTW - drooling over this whole outfit but especially your shoes!
    xo, Lee

  4. I don't know exactly what is going on in your life, but I am thinking of you and I know there is a reason for it. xoxo

  5. Brooke, hoping that whatever you're going through works itself out. Thinking of you and praying for you.
    On the lighter side, you're looking fabulous throughout whatever situation you're facing!


  6. Oh, girly, I feel you so much right now. Life slapping you in the face over and over and just when you think the slapping is done, life kicks you in the proverbial balls. I'm more numb than nerves right now, but I feel myself slowly cracking and I'm anticipating a full blown emotional breakdown. While our crap might be different I'm sure we're feeling somewhat the same. Know that you are not alone and I'm praying for the quiet after the storm for you! XOXO

  7. Oh, no. That doesn't sound good. Just wanted to comment and say that your style is amazing and I love how you put things together. I hope everything turns out for you!

  8. Brooke, you have amazing personality! I have the same feeling about the difficult things in life. Even today something unexpected and unpleasant happened to me and I wnted to sit and cry. It was hard. Never mind, I believe those difficult situations will make us even stronger. Wish you all the best.
    And, by the way, your skirt is fantastic!!!

  9. The hard times make you appreciate the good ones. Love this skirt, lady!
