outfit of the day(bird): denial ain't just a river in egypt

 
 
 
jeans ~ Target
boots ~ Nordstrom Rack
blouse ~ TJ Maxx
necklace, sunnies ~ Francesca's
 
I am in complete denial that Nora is moving. It's in less than a week, and I keep going day to day thinking I can just drive over to her house at any time to borrow a craft item I need for a DIY, or drop off leftover dinner because I know she'd like it. (I'm pretty sure fake chicken doesn't do so well in the mail.) As I'm writing this post, I'm crying...so I guess I'm not in total denial. But yes, I am.
 
Denial that in one week, I will live a four hour plane ride away from one of my best friends. Our usual game nights will have to be via skype. I'll have to wait for the holidays to have our regular Sunday brunches. And even though I know I will still email and text her a million times a day like we already do, I'm going to miss her like crazy.
 
But at least I will now have one more reason to travel west (you're the other reason, Kristin). Unless you guys can somehow convince her to stay....
xo,
megan bird

  1. I have no words which will make this 'all better', so I'll just send a hug.

  3. Are you wearing the blues since Nora is leaving? I am so sorry Megan. I understand trust me. I live like 5000 miles away from ALL of my family. Big hugs to you and you look lovely in that pretty royal blue blouse.

  4. It's going to be rough. Especially at start. But you'll get through it with the constant communication now available through multiple means. In the old days, we had to send letters by pidgeons...

  5. Aw, I'm crying now too. I don't want Nora to go either. Nora, we're going to kidnap you and hide you in Megan's basement. Oh wait, you'll miss the kids and Jim though if we do that? Ok fine. Go.

    But seriously Megan, I can only imagine how hard this is for you - I'm always available if you want to go have drinks or dinner or go shopping and Nate and I love to play games, just sayin. I know I can't take her place, but I'm here for you!

    Hugs to both of you lovely ladies. You'll get through this!

  9. Aww Megan, I am sending you a hug. I admire and envy the special relationship you two have and the way you have your lives intertwined. There isn't anything I can say to make you feel better but I can offer my sympathy and I always wish all the best for you two lovely ladies. I tell people 'I know these really awesome cool sisters online in blog land..' Even when Nora is farther away you will still be these awesome cool sisters. xoxoxo

  10. Aw, that brought a tear to my eye! Our family has always been pretty scattered and I've never had relationships like that. It's really special, what your family has.

  11. Ah, so sweet! I know it must be hard for you both. I am miles and miles away from my Sis too and we talk daily also. The bond will get even stronger and the memories made even sweeter.

    Hugs to you friend!

  14. Oh, I feel for you! My sister and I have lived together a few times but have mostly lived apart. Thank goodness for texting and cell phones. I'm sure it will be really hard at first, but it will get easier. And just think - you can visit awesome California and have a place to stay.

  15. Aww, this makes me want to cry. I hope that maybe you will be able to still feel connected day-to-day through this blog, even though I know that it won't be the same. But it sounds like you'll have an awesome place to go visit!

  16. Megan,
    I am so sorry about Nora's move. It is sad.
    But there is Skype and airplane....
    I have a feeling there will be some very long phone calls in your future!
    Love you OTK boots, denim and stunning purple blouse,
    that's the way to bring on some cheer!
    xx, elle

  17. My twin sis and I have lived apart for years, so I feel for you!
    This outfit is stunning - so chic and simple. The turquoise pendant pops against the deeper blue of your blouse and those boots are beyond gorgeous.

  18. I know it will be difficult to go from having her so close to so far away, but you'll still stay just as connected as ever! My sister and I don't live close by anymore, thank goodness for phones and texting!

  20. Love that cobalt top! And how I wish I could rock thigh-high boots here, but it's so hot where I live :)

    By the way, I'd like for you to come over to my blog to see my latest.
