My Concussion and Myself - Making a Short Appearance and Vote for Vix!

 Hi Ladies!
I have been absent from the blogger sphere for a while-
 Some of you Ladies know - On March 22 I had a nasty fall and concussion-
Slowly getting better, but it's quite a challenge-
I can't do very much still- My energy is low - I have my good and bad days-
My doctor told me to challenge myself a bit, but not too much-
So today I decided to make an appearance for you girls -
Mr. D and I were at a charity event for the organization he works for when it happened -
I can't recall much- D told me I recognized him after he found me, he was looking for me for a while!
I will definitively marry this man, if my brain can recognize him after a nasty brain shook up, well, hell! it's darn good sign! 
 After the fall I didn't know where I was or what I was doing there - D told I didn't recognize my coat or boots- I was delirious in the car, saying all kinds of nonsense, I didn't believe him when he told me I fell- I started to believe him when I felt the big bump on my head  - I came back to normal after 20 minutes
 a1 Thank you to my blogger friends, they sent me some wonderful token of blogger's love!

  Thank you Kelly of Grunge Queen for your wonderful gift ,this is how I wore the scarf last week-
Thanks Val of Muse Fondue
for your wonderful necklace
a1 Hopefully I will get back to normal soon, but I still have a little convalescing to do before I blog and comment regularly-
But since I decided to make an appearance today please take a few minutes and vote for VIX for Best Vintage Personality Award!


Keep smiling love you all!

You poor thing, how frightening for you. Thank goodness for the love of a good man to take care of you!
Loving that block printed maxi dress with the bow tie and kick ass sandals.
What beautiful gifts from true friends, too.
Good to see you back, my dear Ariane, Blogland has been a lot duller without you! xxxxxx

It is so wonderful to see you on the blog again and I am very pleased you are doing better. How scary to fall and get hurt so badly. You continue to rest when you can and you will get there soon enough. I'm just happy you are ok. You look marvellous, adore both of these looks :)))) I send you lots of love and hugs to get fully better soon!! *hugs* xo

Well..you look amazing, Ariane and I have missed you. I am so sorry to hear of your fall...I didn't know! I hope you will be completely well soon...concussions are so scary. You look great as always and I am happy to see your blog return.

pastcaring said...

So nice to see you, Ariane! The fall and its aftermath sound awful, poor you. It hasn't hampered your wonderful sense of style though, I love both dresses here, and how kind of Kelly and Val to send gifts. And how sweet of you to think of Vix!
Look after yourself, and hopefully it won't be long before you are back in business! xxx

Beata B said...

Magdalena Pińska said...

you look beautiful! I wish you very much health! :)


Mrs. D said...

That sounds utterly scary. I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better.
Having the strength to post and say hello to us can only be a good sign.
I hope you continue to get better and can grace us again with your wonderful style and smile!

Patti said...

I've missed you so much - and I am happy to hear you're doing better. But please, take it easy and let Mr. D. do the work. You look lovely in this boho dress! xox

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

So, so nice to see you Ariane! Take good care of yourself!

Val S said...

It's so good to see you back, even if it's brief. I had no idea you were alone when you fell! How horrible to think you were lying there on your own until Mr. D found you. What a prince! My sister had a concussion once, and she also babbled quite a lot, kept asking over and over if she had her contact lenses in.

Take care, cheri!

Connie said...

Oh Baby Doll!!!!! So so super Happy to see You!!! You look none the worse for wear. I'm so relieved that you are OK. You know something is wrong when you don't recognize your own clothes....especially someone with your amazing wardrobe. Take your time getting better. We'll all be hanging out patiently waiting for you. LOVEXXXXXOOOO

What a terrible experience you have had, it must have been quite frightening especially as you were on your own, hurrah for Mr D though for finding you - keep taking lots of care of yourself, rest, and your strength will return and in the meantime I will marvel at the wonderful and perfect Ariane pics x x x

Susan G said...

I'm so pleased to see you here again, Ariane. Please take care. I'm sending you vibes for a speedy and full recovery.

So consumed in my own grief I did not know this happened. I'm glad you are getting better and I think it's good to start with baby steps. You look beautiful . Take care of yourself darling.

Spashionista Alicia Searcy said...

I voted for Vix ;-)

So glad you are starting to get back to your normal self. Physical limitations are no fun, and head injuries are serious business. I'm glad that you will make a full recovery and you're already looking awfully cute in your phottos ;-)


Shawna McComber said...

How frightening! I noticed you were missing and wondered if you were okay but I didn't know this had happened to you. I'm glad you are on the mend. I love your dresses, and what lovely gifts you received! You look great and I hope you are soon feeling great too!

Natalia Lialina said...

Ariane, you look as gorgeous as always! I am so sorry about your fall... What a caring guy your Mr D is - of course marry him! :) Your maxi dress looks so beautiful on you, and all your gifts are so sweet - and so are your friends!


Natalia Lialina said...

Ariane, so sorry about your fall! I left a comment earlier, but it disappeared... I agree with Val - your Mr D is a true prince, of course marry him! :) You look as gorgeous as ever! The maxi dress is amazing, and all the gifts are so sweet, and so are your friends!

Wishing you to recover soon, take a good care of yourself!


Forest City Fashionista said...

So glad to see you sweetie! It's been a long haul for you to get to this point - what a terrifying experience! I think having a head injury would be one the worst things that can happen to someone, so it is a relief to see that you are recovering, slowly but surely. And yes, marry that man ;)

I adore the dress/t-shirt/bow tie combination - you look just like your regular, adorably stylish self. XO

Citizen Rosebud said...

Sounds like a pretty scary fall and a long recovery. I can't imagine.

Hope you continue to feel better. I love the bow tie! : )
