I can’t remember where I found this little pic but I thought it was very apt for the feeling of limbo I am experiencing at the moment. You see tomorrow I was supposed to be married. Tomorrow I was supposed to become a wife. Tomorrow I would be changing my surname. Tomorrow would be the start of a new chapter of my life. But tomorrow is no longer happening… Instead tomorrow will see me jetting off on a trip. A trip where I’m hoping to find some clarity, some peace of mind, a chance to just be, a chance to stop thinking about everything…

So miss me while I’m away. And hold thumbs that when I land back on SA soil next Sunday, my mind is clearer and more decisive.

Hugs & Kisses
Jessica Giggles


  1. People sometimes say it without realising what it means, but this time I’m sure it is genuine: you’re in my thoughts, and those of your friends who love you and care about you.

  8. I think going on this trip is a great idea. Hope you have a fabulous time out there. And again, if you go to Dubai (it’s only about 2 hours’ drive from Abu Dhabi), here are a few more places you may want to check out:

    Barasti in Jumeirah
    Wild Wadi water park
    Jumeirah Beach
    Wafi City (for some of the best dining options in the UAE!) and, one of my personal favourites (the perfect spot for a wild night out): Rock Bottom.
    If you go there, you *have* to have one of their signature Bullfrog cocktails – you’ll never be the same again! ;P Be sure to take along taxi money – They have a 0 tolerance, 0% alcohol limit policy!

    I’m afraid I never saw much of Abu Dhabi besides the airport… But I found that 2 hour drive on Sheikh Zayed Road between Dubai & Abu Dhabi the best place to be at 2 in the morning when my head needed straightening out. I’d bring a stack of CDs and play all my favourites and sing and cry and drive and think….

    Thinking of you – go well!
