A Walk through the Garden

I promise you. We are still alive. And doing very well! We didn't mean to desert you, but life happens sometimes.
We've been so busy.
    Playing in the church band.
                Laundry. (Which takes awhile because the dryer broke.)
                     Going to lots of cook outs. 
And of course gardening.
       Lots and lots of gardening.

(I decided not to edit any of these)

 I love our garden. It is so peaceful and full of life.

  The golden hour is made all the more beautiful as the blooming flowers take in the light.

 There is a dug out, worn out, foot path, weaving between the beds.  
                            But I still almost get lost.
It's a good lost. Lost in the green. Lost in the dirt.

 And Oh! the feeling you get after a long day of hard work in the sunshine!
                   And being able to see the fruit of your labor!
 "To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow."
                               -Audrey Hepburn
 "The earth has music for those who listen." 
 I admit. There are weeds. But the weeds are also beautiful.
 "If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere."

Liam// 5 Months

I just realized I never posted this. It was almost a month ago that I meant to, so Liam is a bit older but just as cute!

He loves my camera, which I'm glad because I was worried he'd be scared of it. So it's really fun to photograph him.

He's already starting to pull himself around and rocks back and forth on his knees. He's starting to say "Hey!" when he's trying to get our attention, he really hates wearing socks and loves rock 'n' role music.

He's really just so cute and his big eyes are so blue.
He certainly is a curious little munchkin!
Hope you liked seeing these pics!

What She Wore// Street Style :: Guest

Hello readers!
I wanted to share with you this Street Style outfit worn by my very sweet friend, Gideon.

I thought her outfit was so stylish! The texture of the cardi and the mix of neutrals was really nice.
But she really doesn't like to be in front of the camera... I kinda had to force her to let me shoot her, but she's just so natural!

Isn't she beautiful? It was really fun to get her pics. It was like a little mini photoshoot, but on a whim!
The hat is actually mine, but I thought it matched perfectly, so I had Gideon wear it for the pics.

-What She Wore-

 Shirt- handmedown
Tank- Walmart $5
Cardi- Ross $12
Pants- from a friend
Boots- gift
Hat- borrowed

Isn't she just lovely?

Resurrection Celebration

Happy (belated) Easter!
Our day was full of jubilation and remembrance of our Savior.
To start the day we attended a very nice church, the music was beautiful and the sermon, very thoughtful and had some very good points.

When we came home, we began our Seder Meal, something we do every year.
This year we had a delicious lamb roast. Mom cooked it perfectly!
I gotta be perfectly honest with you. I didn't do so well on capturing everything....
I got some pics of dessert though!

 Almond honey cakes.

 Fig bars.

And peanut butter chocolate cups!

It was a bit rainy and cold that day, but just being able to have this time to thank Jesus for taking our place on the cross and forgiving us our sins is so nice. 
I am nothing, but because of Him, I can be something. He is our Savior, our Strong Tower, and I am so thankful that He is in my life!


How was your Easter?

What She Wore// Katniss Cowl

Hey there!
I hope you are having a great Sunday, I know I am! The snow has finally melted here in the Ozarks. Here is an outfit I wore a few weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground...

 I have to admit, I love this outfit! It's comfortable, cozy and a little bit edgy. You see that cowl? Mom made it for my birthday from an old sweater. She's quit the seamstress! If you're a Hunger Games fan, you'll know that it's a Katniss cowl. It's so cozy and super warm. And not to mention, the color is awesome! 

 You should see the looks I get when I wear this outfit. Some people just stare, thinking,"What in the world is that girl wearing?". Others smile and nod because they know. Although not everyone may like it, I do and that's all that counts, right?

 Looking at this picture, all I can hear is Katy Perry's "Roar". 
In case you didn't already know, I'm crazy :)

-What She Wore-
striped shirt: gift
cowl: gift
jeans: Walmart $13
combat boots: Army Navy Surplus $30

What do you think?

Do you have a favorite outfit or item that may not necessarily be "in", but you still love it?
Don't worry about what others think, because the haters will just keep on hating!
With love,
