Sometimes I wonder why God has blessed me with these people. They are awesome beyond words and I love that I get to call them my friends. I like these peeps, a lot. Besides frequenting In-n-Out, we have game nights at the donut shop, epic movie marathons, and go hiking as much as possible. These are some pictures from a hike we went on last week. :) Continue reading

The holiday season was a busy one for me; with a seasonal retail job added to the normal holiday bustle, there wasn't much down time from late November and all through December. I really enjoyed it, but it is nice to have a little break from the busyness. More time to spend with family, hang out with friends, and focus on things I've been neglecting (namely blogging). :) So yesterday I had a lazy day at home, working on blog posts and eating ice cream before I went to work in the evening. Comfy jeans, a tee and over sized... Continue reading

Okay, today I'm gonna talk about infinity scarves! This type of scarf (also called circle scarves) has been pretty trendy for a while now, and I don't really see it stopping soon. I've loved this trend, but didn't own any. For Christmas I got a charcoal colored one in a soft t-shirt material. Its so cozy, and an easy way to add an extra something to your outfits. 1. 2. 3. Here I've gathered some infinity scarves that I'd love to have in my closet. Scarves 2 and 3 would be a simple way to dress up a jeans and... Continue reading

2013. A new year! I'm ready for a fresh clean slate... are you? I've never been one to really make new year's resolutions. It's been more of a nice thought, but never something I put time into. So this year I decided to make a short list of goals. I like goals better than resolutions. I could share a list of things I say I'm determinded to do this year, and then I probably won't do them all the way, or at all. But if I write down my goals for this year, the things that I want to put... Continue reading

i'm editing photos from an adorable baby shoot, eating salted caramel dark chocolate, and marveling at God's greatness. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 Continue reading

This morning I had the privilege of taking six month photos of a dear friend of mines baby girl. It was nice and cool, but I knew it would get warm later, so I opted for layers. I'm really loving denim on denim right now, so I thought I'd give it a try. Success I think? And of course I can't go to a shoot without my trusty, stylish camera bag! outfit details:: chambray button down//Aeropostale, tank top//Target, shorts//Lauren Conrad for Kohls, shoes//TOMS, sunnies//Target, necklace//thrifted, camera bag//Kelly Moore Bag Continue reading

Last night the bestie texted me a pic of the new boots she had bought. This lead her to counting her shoes, which lead to me counting my shoes, which lead us to discovering we both have a unhealthy love for shoes. We then compared what kinds we had the most of. She came up with mostly boots, and I with mostly heels. I wasn't suprised in the least. :) Soon the days will be getting cooler, and for that I am very excited! The valley where I live is currently engulfed in smoke from wildfires nearby, and I'm praying... Continue reading

It was the morning of our fifth day in London. We rode the Tube (London subway) to the train station, boarded the train, and off to Paris we were headed! A few hours later and I was walking the streets of a place I had only dreamed about. It was not like I had imagined, exactly, but it was going to be an amazing experience, I just knew. When we arrived at the hostel, they only had two of our rooms availble, so the (five) guys put their luggage in one room and us (14) girls put ours in the... Continue reading

Hey there! I'm not sure if there is anyone out there that still remembers me. It's been a while. BUT, I have found new motivation/inspiration to start blogging again. See, last month a lovely family moved in next door. It was kind of a big deal to us, because all our previous neighbors have been single older folks. Which is great, but when we saw this family come look at the house, we were excited. Then they actually bought it. We had been praying for great new neighbours, and God graciously answered our prayers! It soon was discovered that we... Continue reading

I love all the treats that come with Christmastime! How 'bout you? Do you have a favorite Christmas goodie? I don't know if I could choose a favorite, but I really love orange creams. They bring back memories of making them with my granny when I was little. One year we made all the balls of that delicious orange cream, froze them, dipped them in chocolate, and then proceeded to eat them all! Just the two of us. Oh boy, my mom and grandma were not happy. ;) Here are a few recipes I want to try this holiday season!... Continue reading

I've lived in the same neighborhood my entire life. We have "green" Christmases. I don't really mind; but somewhere, someday, I want to get snowed in. Because it sounds romantic, and I'm a hopeless romantic. :) Do you have white Christmases or green ones? Continue reading

I absolutely adore all things vintage. Every time I walk in a thrift store, I scan the racks for lost treasures. That funky patterned skirt, the odd Corningware mug (or maybe a complete set!), a colorful piece of Pyrex, or an awesome velour "granny chair". I almost always bring home a little something, whether it be a skirt for my future-Etsy-shop stash, a picture to pretty up my home, or a vase to add to my ever growing collection. Do you love vintage too? Do you have a special piece that made you squeal when you found it? Or a... Continue reading
