    Wildwood Dancing

     Much like a bear hibernates in the winter, I feel as though my blog has hibernated these last few weeks. After the big snowed-in weekend, where I spent every day planning a new photoshoot to take advantage of the beauty of the rare snow, I felt my motivation to blog those photos melt away with the subsequent days of rain and slush. I could keep it poetic and say my mood followed the weather, but in reality something finally happened in our lives that put into perspective many of the things I do for blogging and social media. And since then, I’ve been working to figure out the best way…

    Dream a Little Dream of Me

    Stars shining bright above you Night breezes seem to whisper I love you Birds singing in the sycamore tree Dream a little dream of me Say night-ie night and kiss me Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me While I’m alone and blue as can be Dream a little dream of me  similar robe | similar earrings | similar nightgown | similar hair flowers | similar mirror

    The Queen of Ice and Snow

    I know that it is technically time for Valentine’s day, but over this weekend Washington was hit with snowfall the likes of which haven’t been seen since the early 90’s! So of course, I had to take advantage and get a few snow-filled photoshoots in before today, when the rain is supposed to begin washing it all away. Today’s post was inspired by the lovely Katie and subsequently Elizabeth over on Instagram, who posed in the snow in their beautiful vintage dresses. As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to do a gown-in-the-snow photoshoot. The only thing was, I had to wait for snow! And boy, did…

    Jane Steele || What I’m Reading

     These past few weeks, my whole family has been sick. It started with a seemingly light cold, but especially in my two girls has developed into a gross cough and the baby has just been a waterfall of drool and snot. So, understandably, I haven’t been posting! I did wear a few cute outfits, and took photos, but sitting to write is always the part that takes me the longest, and in the fog of being sick and going to my aunt’s memorial and nursing three kids back to a semblance of health, blogging took a back seat. I’ve said this year I’d like to be more intentional with blogging,…

    Dress of Dreams || Miss Candyfloss Dress Review

     Before I get into this, this post is NOT sponsored, and I bought this dress of my own volition with all my own money! Occasionally I do work with brands, but this is not one of them! The story of this dress is about two or so years in the making. I had been aware of Miss Candyfloss for a year or so because my babe Sara blogged about a dress from them, and that’s when I fell in love. Miss Candyfloss makes the perfect hybrid of vintage housewife chic dresses in many, many glorious iterations. I believe it was about a month later that this particular dress came out…
