So I have never ever worn red, white, and blue together because I was afraid I would look like a flag, but I think it's really pretty! I think it works because I have a solid and different types of patterns to give more dimension. Anyway, my husband gets back from a work trip tonight so I am very happy!!

Did you ever have one of those days where a grey cloud seems to be hovering over everyone around you? Today was one of those days filled with all sorts of drama, and I am very thankful that the cloud never found me.

The weather was beautiful today and I had a great time visiting with my family! I picked up my grandmother's dining table and some of her old cookbooks. I cant wait till the house is done and everything is in order. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

simple things

"Some day, when I’m awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.

You’re lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight."

I heard this song today and I have heard it a million times but I think it is so simple and so sweet.
I love simple and sweet things, like this headband I found at a junkyard!
Happy Friday!!!

i love mixing prints, i think the solid colored jeans helps the outfit from going overboard.

My Fall WishList

                                               I need these items for the Fall!!


So much for thunderstorms today, could not be prettier outside! I am excited for this upcoming week, we are suppose to start getting our new floor installed. I hope so, I cant wait! But after that there's only a million more things to do around the house, maybe in a year it will all be done??? maybe?

Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.  ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859
