lynbacca Reading has been the greatest escape for me lately. William Styron once said that reading was the best way to keep loneliness at bay. I think he was right. Books have given me refuge like nothing else. Anyway, this is my latest read-- 'The Sky is Everywhere' by Jandy Nelson. Really enjoying YA right now. Can't wait to get my hands on her newest novel 'I'll Give You the Sun'. Feel free to leave any book recommendations if you have any! :) // 2d
  •   curly_liz Me Before You by Jojo Moyes is a great book. I also read One Plus One. I really enjoyed both of them. Happy reading!! 2d
  •   dannaann Not YA but I recently read The Strain trilogy, totally different but good! Redeeming Love, Unbroken, Maze Runner, Gone Girl, The Glass Castle, The Summer I Turned Pretty. I don't really have a favorite genre 2d
  •   erika__danielle The glass castle, a million little pieces, gone girl, my friend Leonard 2d

lynbacca Just finished reading 'Me Before You.' Thanks to everyone who recommended it :) I honestly don't think I've ever read a book quite like it. Nor read a book that made me laugh/smile and break my heart all at the same time. I just fell in love with these characters. Beyond beautiful story. // 2w

lynbacca If you're in need of a new book I seriously recommend you pick up the 'Shatter Me' series by @taherehmafi . I started 'Shatter Me' (book #1) a few days ago and I'm already about to start 'Ignite Me' (book #3). Amazon, hurry it up please. Also, I apologize to everyone I've been completely ignoring because of it. Total isolation-zombie-reading mode. #donotdisturb #booksaremycrack #saycrackagain #crack #hopeyoucaughtthatmeangirlsreference #ineedalife // 2w

lynbacca So I took a break from Instagram for a little bit. I promised in a previous post that I wouldn't sugarcoat my life like everything is always super dandy rainbows and just be real. And I'm sticking to that. The truth is that I've been battling some inner demons. I've been experiencing bouts of anxiety, sadness, and a terrible sense of loneliness for the past year or so. It comes in waves, never really know when it's going to strike. But I got rocked hard by a big one two weeks ago and I've been trying to regain my balance ever since. I'm trying to smile and laugh--shake it off-- but sometimes when you feel you're ready to get back up, you just get knocked down again. It's something I'm trying to figure out. I don't mean to lay the heavy heavy here but I figure 'hey, I'm only human.' And I'm sure many of you have/are going through similar situations. What I'm learning is that a difficult but beautiful thing about being human IS our fragility, our vulnerability, and the ability to say 'you know what? I'm not ok.' I don't know if it'll make things any easier, but at least I'm trying to accept life as it is. Sometimes it's dark and twisted, with a sick sense of humor, but sometimes it's also pretty wonderful. Trying to remember to notice the wonderful bits. // 3w
  •   lmonique13 My dear my dear. Life brings many twists and turns that aren't easy to share on a site such as this. I'm thankful for your transparency bc although we may all have style in common, our behind the scenes stories are very different. But being human and feeling weak? Absolutely relevant to us all. As Chanel said, I'm going to keep you in my prayers as well. My faith in God has gone in waves, much like other emotions in my life, but I've found that despite me, He has been constant. Im not sure what you believe, but I know you see beauty in this world, and I will pray you see it overwhelmingly so, and very soon. Much love to you, sister 2w
  •   sweettreen I just read this and I have been struggling the same way - I definitely agree with you on trying to remember special/happy moments in life. Anxiety and depression are such real things and need to be recognized. I hope you have gained some emotional strength since you posted this :) 2w

  •   thatsmrsscott This is very human of you. Bless your heart for realizing social media is about being real not glamorizing. I hope your path leads you to clarity and the joy of just living that many of us (including me) journey for 2w

lynbacca When it rains it pours. And this week has been really rough. Since I've been keeping you all updated on Achilles, I thought I'd give you an update. Two days ago Achilles suddenly became completely dazed, started vomiting numerous times (more than ten), and bleeding profusely from his rectum. We immediately took him to the vet but thankfully he was stable. They did some tests but no answers yet as to the cause. He's on antibiotics now, he hasn't had any bleeding again or vomiting, and we're praying that he remains stable and that the worst is over. That day was one of the scariest days of my life. For a while there I thought we were going to lose him. It's been a rough year for Achilles, but he has so much life left in him. I just know it. // 4w
  •   ellivenstudio I am so sorry to hear this. It's so hard to see them in pain. Our pups is going in for surgery tomorrow and I'm hoping that once it's over and he's recovered he will be comfortable again. 4w

  •   yasminroohi Poor little guy. Praying for you all. 4w
  •   kendraleighj I'm so sorry :[, I hope he starts getting better soon! Thinking of you!! 4w
  •   lynbacca @ellivenstudio @ellivenstudio Oh I hope everything goes smoothly with your pup and he feels better soon. It really is hard when they can communicate what they're feeling. But they know they're deeply loved so I take comfort in that. 4w
  •   lynbacca @yasminroohi @kendraleighj thank you 4w
