    The in-Between || Waiting for Home and Other Things

    Right now we are in the in-between of home buying. Waiting for paperwork to be gone over, waiting for things to be officially approved, waiting for other people to do their jobs so that we can move forward. We have nineteen days left until the closing date, and it feels like everything has slowed down because there is now very little for us to do. So far as we know, we have submitted all of the paperwork they needed, made all the clarifications and changes, signed all of the revisions… and so we wait. I am so thankful that we are able to live with my in-laws during this period…

    Life Changes || Moving Update!

    I took these photos more than a month ago. When everything had just begun to sprout and the anticipation of the garden’s produce was still new. But now, we have already harvested peas, chives, potatoes, beets, and carrots, and just as quickly as it seems this garden has sprouted and grown things, our life has changed. In just a few hopefully short weeks, we will be closing on the sale of a home. Our first house. In just a few weeks, we’ll officially be homeowners, and that thought blows my mind. I have dreamed of owning my own house for years but didn’t think it would happen this soon, nor…

    Autumn in the Spring

    We are only halfway to spring but already I’m craving autumn-colored combinations. I had thought I would save this pretty dress from Rainbow Lady Vintage until the fall, when I could find a good leaf-strewn spot to pose with all of the browns and yellows and oranges of autumn, but today it called to me. As we stay mostly inside through the gloomy spring rains, I wanted something darker than my normal colorful florals. Something with the same weight as the moisture-laden skies and the drooping wet leaves. Luckily for me, this dress has been waiting in my closet for a few weeks just for a day like this. While…

    Tatyana Flower Cart Dress

    I have tried to wear this beautiful Tatyana dress several times. But every time I slipped it on, the little red straps originally at the shoulders just threw me off. The off-shoulder design is not very extreme, so the straps were completely uneccessary and, in my opinion, added a little too much fuss to the already scalloped and off-shoulder design. So for a while, I sat it in my “sell” pile. While it has many features I love, it’s also white (I am notorious for spilling coffee!) and the straps just didn’t work no matter how much I tried. Then this weekend I had the glaringly obvious idea: tuck the…
