Beyond the coincidence of this being an all-black outfit and naming this post Genesis, I chose this title because Genesis is the first book in the Bible – i.e. it’s the beginning – and with the 1st of September being a little over two weeks away, it’s almost the start of spring, too.

I’m starting to feel like introductions are in order because it’s been a good two months *hides* since I’ve last graced the DearSolo blog with my presence. But in my defence, if you’ve been following me on social media, you’d know that the past few months have not been particularly easy.
