Dear Diary

Some Sad News

I’ve been alluding to this post on social media for a week now, and I think it’s about time I let you guys know what’s going on with me and my life right now. After three years of ups and downs, my little fairytale has come to an end. Emmett and I have decided to split up.

I’ve really struggled with how to share this news publicly, but since my blog is so personal, I thought it only made sense to explain why I’ve been a little off lately, and may continue to be for the next little while. I still love Em so much, and saying goodbye to this relationship has been unbelievably hard on both of us, but we both have a lot of things to figure out and it recently became clear that we’re just not going to be able to work them out without spending some time apart. I’m somewhere between the point of denial and the point when I can’t even think about it without crying, but I’m confident that in one way or another we’re going to stay close and connected. There’s still a lot of love between us and our little fur family, and I can’t imagine a future without Em- he’s my best friend.

I hope that all of you will stick around through this rough patch, even if my posts start to feature a lot more buckets of ice cream and Sex and the City. As cheesy as it sounds, your little comments and reposts help me get out of bed on days when everything hurts too much and all of the big changes happening around me leave me feeling paralyzed. Thank you for being glittery and awesome and tagging me in cute photos on Instagram: as I sift through and separate our belongings and start my search for a new place to call home, your kind words keep me feeling strong and remind me that my life is still magical and full of love.

  • I am so sorry to hear this news, but remember that it’s a new chapter in your life where you can learn amazing sense of independence and bravery. Don’t worry if you’re ever alone and you feel scared, being scared is a super power – its a chemical thing in our bodies that makes us run faster and jump higher than we ever can!
    You absolutely inspire me in so many ways every single day on your blog, on Pinterest and on Instagram 🙂 take as much time as you need, in the happy knowledge that we’ll all be so excited to have you back! Xx

  • Oh, Alyssa. I’m so sorry. Breakups suck. I’m going through one myself, but it will get easier over time. <3

  • Sorry to hear this lovely, sending happy thoughts and virtual hugs your way xx

  • Just found your site, your IG, your Twitter, and just wanted to say — I love what you’re about. I love your look, your insight, your confidence. And even though I’ve only been a fan for a couple hours, just wanted to say… I haven’t known you long, but you rule! (And you may be the reason I’ve gained the confidence to just take the plunge and get platinum blonde hair next week! Ahaha)

    Keep doin you, dude! Love, a new (but soon to be longtime) fan.

  • […] was a huge year for me, with lots of success and growth, and equally as much loss and heartbreak. Simply put, It was one of the most defining and important years of my life so […]
