The lights are blinding, but it gets there.

Hello! We're visiting my family this "weekend" and doing absolutely nothing at all. It's great. I'm not at all accustomed to typing a blog entry from my phone, which I am now attempting. #inconvenient (isn't it funny what twitter has done for the number sign?) I kinda like that we don't have any good coffee bars here so we "have to" get Starbucks. :) it's also been a fun weekend because there might be some life changes on the way for our mini family. More later if it pans out, I guess. Sometimes even if prospective things don't work out, just the fact that it reminds you that there's always new possibilities on the horizon is enough encouragement to keep you going! Life is so great. Sometimes I'll just be driving down the freeway by myself and just be amazed at how beautiful life is, for no reason at all. Anyway, what can you do with a sentimental heart? :)

I was super cozy and comfy today as we ran our "errands" which weren't really errands at all. I'm sure someday we will have busier weekends and I'll look back on these lazy ones quite fondly.

Oh, and here's Birdsie with her new peter pan collar. I knew she had to have one because of her blog illustration. I just cut it off the dress she wore in the last post. I think I'm going to sew it on her collar so she can always look fancy when she's on a walk or with her friends at the dog park. :) :) :)





XO!

  8. I had one of those days today too. The sun was out, and I spent the day appreciating how beautiful it was while listening to great music.

    I wish my dog could wear collars like that! She's so fluffy, so it would just be hidden under all her hair.

  24. Your outfit is so beautiful. It looks complex, interesting and colorful with all the pretty layers. And I love the euphoric feeling I get from time to time about life feeling fantastic.

    ***I may steal your idea for the collar. My fancy shamcy dog would love one!!

  25. you should wear your hair like that more often, such cool kid hair :) Birdie doesn't seem to enjoy her collar or maybe she's just hungry?

    ReplyDelete
  26. A peter pan collar for your pup? Adorable.

    Also - loving your outfit, but most especially that bag!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my gosh! The collar!! Just like I imagined! :)
    Please tell me your life change is a baby! ha! When I referenced to a big "life change" on my blog a few months back....that is what everyone assumed! (but I suppose they were right!) haha.

  28. The print on your dress is amazing. & Birdie looks adorable as usual!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, lovely color scheme and the jacket is perfect! Birdie is preshhhh

  30. Oh my god, Birdie looks so adorable. I'm worried that if you attach it to her collar though, it'll get all dirty. But I'm pretty much dying of cuteness.

    Speaking of dying of cuteness, I LOVE your ensemble! I gotta get me a a nice cropped sweater. it's such an unexpected proportion, but it really works.

    Have a lovely lazy weekend!
