Ballet, Rhubarb, and Lily of the Valley

{There is a part of me that will always be a dancer, and it’s a part I cherish}

This feels like a celebration of so many things I love! Ballet, rhubarb, and Lily of the Valley…I’m feeling extraordinarily blessed. 
My own happiness is fragile and fleeting, but the Lord’s freedom and joy in my life are what fill my cup to overflowing.
Thank you, Lord, for YOUR joy and provision in my life. For lovely people who gift me a bouquet of rhubarb. For inspirational mentors to share a meal & rhubarb pie. And for dear friends who offer me sweet, sweet Lily of the Valley. 
Thank you, too, for the spirit within me that loves to dance, and for the rediscovery of that pleasure, if only in my yard and living room 😉
All I can think is one of my favorite hymns…“He’s the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.”

Cashmere Taste


Cashmere taste on a thrift store budget! 

Sometimes a girl with cashmere taste on a thrift store budget makes out like a bandit. This 100% cashmere pencil skirt with adorable pleating was $10, ya’ll. It’s kinda the softest, most wearable skirt ever, and one of my favorite thrift finds so far. I envision I’ll be wearing it all winter, so I’m sorry if you get sick of seeing it! 
Also, I almost didn’t buy these shoes.
But then I did. And they got me lots of compliments (and blisters).
And  one more also: Happy New Year!
May God continue to refine us in the coming year.
