I originally had something else written for this post, but in light of a certain image that has circulated quite a bit the past 24 hours, and after reading this article about it (heads up: the images in this article are disturbing), it only seemed fitting to change today's topic.
I know we don't talk about politics or world issues here on This Time Tomorrow -- and I'm by no means trivializing what we do discuss here or any other fashion/lifestyle/travel/food/insert-niche-here blog for that matter. But I do think I'd be amiss if I were to post these photos today of one of my favorite dresses, taken in a beautiful city (San Francisco), in a beautiful country, without taking a moment to acknowledge everything that I'm so incredibly thankful for and blessed to have -- because it's so easy to lose sight of that at times. And I know I often do.
What really hit me (more accurate: what broke my heart) was the young boy's father's quote today in The New York Times:
"Now I don't want anything. Even if you give me all the countries in the world, I don't want them. What was precious is gone."
I guess what I'm trying to say, as we head into the long weekend, is perspective is everything. And sometimes you have to remind yourself that.
