    The Vintage Garden || My Happy Place

    My second modern-to-vintage outfit goes quite well with the theme of today’s youtube video, so I thought I’d share that look while I talk about growing a garden this year! I get quite a few questions about gardening every time I share an instastory while I’m out there. Now, I’m not really a seasoned gardener at all. In fact, this year is only the second year I’ve attempted to garden. The first year I got some carrots and maybe 2 tomatoes, but that was about it. However, I know a few things I could have changed, and I also know that what we did this year vastly helped, so I’ll…

    My modern basics for vintage style

    For the longest time, my closet didn’t have basics. I would happen upon “closet must have” lists, and nothing really appealed to me. Black slacks? A blazer? A white button up blouse? Not my style. Even things as classic as a Little Black Dress didn’t seem appropriate for me, my closet, and my lifestyle.

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…
