Footloose and Fancy Free

Life is a funny thing.  It’s weird to think that those pictures were taken less than five years ago. When I was living footloose and fancy free. My mom used this expression once a few short months ago when she was talking about life before babies and it really stuck. When I graduated college, the only person I was concerned about was myself.  I could go anywhere and be anything I wanted to be and…

Smiling at the Little Things

New routines and all things that make life feel busy and full.  Summer is officially over in fifteen days and it’s already starting to feel like fall in our neck of the woods.  Here’s a few pictures over the last couple weeks that have reminded me how little (and big) things can make my heart smile… ^^ Frisbee golfing with the husband and Jack on work nights. ^^Flowers from sweet friends picked straight from their…

Links I’m Loving

What are your plans for the weekend?  We have a packed weekend with celebrating my grandma’s birthday, a dinner party, and a little Sunday lounging between running errands.  Hope you have a great weekend and here are a few posts from around the web… I know it’s September already (not too mention I haven’t been doing too much alcoholic beverage drinking lately) but this drink looks amazing and I’m definitely bookmarking it for when this…

20 Things & An Outfit

dress – target // sunglasses – kohls // earrings – kohls // watch – kenneth cole (old) (Side note:  This is my first time ever doing a style post and it is the most awkward thing ever.  Not to mention I got at least ten mosquito bites on my forehead alone during this.  I hope if I keep practicing, it will get better?  Someone please tell me it does!) 1.  I have always wanted to be…

A New Life

When I was in high school and college I always wanted to be a mom but I didn’t want to get married.  Don’t ask me the logistics of how I was going to make that one happen.  I just knew I wouldn’t marry. Then Andrew came along and I told myself I wouldn’t date him because we’ve known each other since kindergarten and I didn’t want to go back to my past.  That clearly got…

Clean Slate

Apparently blogging is the new black ad it looks great on everyone.  This is where I would typically say I’m dying to try it but I already have.  Twice actually.  Is it possible to have a bloggers identity crisis at the ripe age of twenty-seven?  I’m not so sure.  Back in October of 2011, I really wanted to start a blog but I had no idea what I wanted to write about.  At the time,…
