Less of a Marilyn, more of a Jackie.

Keeping it positive.









I really couldn't dream of a collar I could adore more. Thanks to Laur for using the sunlight so nicely. (:

I don't really like pie but it still makes me happy. I don't like hamburgers either but they make me happy too. (:








Had a special evening with my sister and parents. My family has a thing about going on "rides". My dad always drives us around to random places and now Gabe carries on the tradition. Today we are in the southern desert of California where I spent a lot of my childhood. My dad drove us by my old house, school, all of my friends' houses, & practically every business we ever supported in the area. We had dinner at Polly's Pies. There wasn't a patron in there under 60. Plus, they had adorable speckled tabletops. It was amazing. I love the warm September desert weather and the ubiquitous palm trees. So close to Palm Springs but I wouldn't want to go without my husb!

Love you guys.

  11. I never think of just jumping in my car and going for a ride somewhere nostalgic or somewhere I've never been. I'd like to take more adventures this fall. I'd also like to own a polka dotted school girl dress like this. It looks adorable, and you're right on the collar!

  19. i wish i had a dress with a collar like this, peter pan collars are just too pretty. do you rag roll your hair because it has a very delicate vintage look to it?
    plus the food looks yummy especially the strawberry one !
