It’s Over Again

So Christmas has come and gone again. I am a mixture of relieved, and sad this time of year when the holiday has left us and we have a whole year until it graces us once more.

I had intentions to write a blog post on Christmas Day wishing everyone a happy day, but instead it was spent traveling back home, and then getting home and realizing we had no food in the house and searching all around town trying to find something that was opened. Luckily we found a gas station with a grocery store inside and bought ingredients to make pasta. Yummy Christmas dinner to us.

All that to say, I hope you all had a lovely day hopefully spending time with loved ones. And maybe you stopped to think about Christ on that day who is the reason not just for the season, but for every day.

To Grandmother’s House We Go

These pictures were taken at my Granny’s house. It is one of my favorite places on earth. I went to college only 20 minutes or so away from her so this place became my home away from home. I have missed it terribly the last few months and I’m so thankful my husband and I got to spend time with both of our families this year. We are extremely blessed

And yes, the blonde streak is permanent. A friend of mine did it for me while visiting my home town and I love it. (Thanks Jessica!)

Naughty or Nice

Most of the time, I’m nice. (i.e. trying to take the time to compliment others, rubbing my husbands back for him when he’s sore, calling friends and family just to say hi)

But at times I can be a little naughty. (i.e. refusing to help my husband with things because I’m too lazy, putting myself above others far too often, making mountains out of mole hills and causing others to suffer because of it)

Did you make the nice list this year?

Rainy Day

It was sprinkling on me while taking these pictures, but I was in love with this outfit so I had to take a few pictures of it. This sweater was one of my few Black Friday deals and looking back I wish I would have bought it in every color. It is so comfortable and I think it would look great with some sweater tights also. And I just made my lace up boots more versatile by getting colored laces to switch out. I love it.

Definitions

I was thinking the other day about how my style has been changing. When I first started this blog I was in a bit more of a ultra girly, sort of preppy stage (see here, and here) But now if I were to define my style I would say it is “thrown together chic”. I have been enjoying putting pieces together that don’t necessarily match or traditionally go together. But I also don’t want to look like my closet just threw up on me, so it it a bit of a balance. The outfit above is a good example of my current fashion fetish.

What is your current style looking like?

Tree House

I had my camera and my tripod all packed up and I was walking down to a location in my neighborhood when I spotted this old abandoned tree house. For some reason it appealed to me. As I took these pictures I wonder what the kids were like who used to play here, what kinds of games did they play. It may become a new location I frequent for other creative shoots.

Also, I decided for days when I don’t feel like curling my hair but don’t want to put it up either, the solution is just to add a few braids in. What do you think?

Dangerous

I’m a landmark person when it comes to directions. So if you ever come and visit me, this dangerous intersection signs is one of the things I will tell you to look for when turning on to my street. I thought it might be a fun place to take my new tripod for a spin. Yes you heard right, before this shoot I was setting my camera on chairs and ledges. I’m slowly getting more legit.
