    Rain, Rain, Go Away…

    ¬†Thrifted vintage dress and heels | Target tights | self-made flower crown | old umbrella | New Old Fashion Vintage scarf Well, today I am not that happy with anything. It’s dumping buckets of rain outside, which limits my photographing ability; I adore this dress but today I just couldn’t get it styled the way I want it, my hair is having one of those days (any attempt to do anything with it has been foiled) and is getting to the point where I need to decide whether to dye it red or back to my natural color and I just don’t know, and also I’m cold. So here’s the…

    Thoughts on Marriage

    Sometimes I feel as though because I’ve only been married for two years, or because I had¬† a great pregnancy and have a nearly-always-happy child, I am not qualified to give advice. Because I haven’t experienced hardships, I haven’t gone through a rough period, I didn’t have terrible pregnancy symptoms, my boobs didn’t suffer through nursing, my child sleeps fine and only has mild teething symptoms, and I’m still in what most people would qualify as the “honeymoon” stage of marriage. But I read Kristen’s post this morning, and I thought… why can’t I share what I have learned? Just because it hasn’t been hard doesn’t mean I haven’t discovered…

    Bohemian Lace

    Let me preface this by saying: the more I look at this outfit, the less I like it. I like the pieces in and of themselves, but all together… eh. Oh well. You can’t always hit the mark perfectly, especially when you’re blogging every day! Today is a day for laziness, for cuddling up on the couch with my coziest blanket and my squishiest baby and watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries all afternoon. Asa is quite sleepy today, which is odd because he slept an hour longer than normal and took one good nap this morning. But, it’s dark and rainy outside, and he’s growing and teething, so I’m sure…

    Lazy Mode

    Mondays are for no makeup, running errands, cozy sweaters, and Christmassy scarves. Asa is teething so hard his gums at one impending tooth are actually black and blue! Poor little guy. But he’s happy enough, and he’s ready for a nap, so this post will be short! I’m not usually one for wearing a chunky, loose sweater over a dress, but this sweater was way too cute to pass up, especially when paired with this equally gorgeous scarf! I actually love this outfit, even though it’s not traditionally the most flattering on me. The sweater is way too comfortable to even care. Plus, it’s my and Mr Owl’s anniversary so…

    Winter Brights

    In favor of posting a daily dress to the best of my ability, l am putting weekend links on hold (and also I have very few links to share, so… there’s that) but I would like to share this one,which is very important: if you can, I would highly encourage you to check out/pray for/donate to this fund. A longtime family friend of ours’ daughter has had a brain tumor for years that they had previously been told was inoperable, but a few weeks ago a neurosurgeon called to tell them that he believes he can safely remove her tumor before any more damage is done. This tumor has caused…
