Happy summer, friends. 
Lately I’ve been all about fresh lemonade, baking in this crazy heat, Sara Bareilles’ new CD, Relient K’s new CD, hiking, and staying up way too late/sleeping in {oops}.
What is the BEST THING you’ve done so far this summer?! 

Sound of Music

Oh my heart is singing a song lately! It’s Springtime and the lilacs are blooming and I love these new shoes and Jesus is just filling my heart to overflowing. 

I’ve travelled a lot lately, and caught up with some dear friends I haven’t seen in years, and I’ve gotten lots of little girl hugs & smiles (I just ADORE my friends’ kids!).

I’m so excited to see what else is on the horizon for the summer. It’s going to be a good one, don’t you think?

Subtle Monday

Just a few pictures.
That’s all. 
The words in my heart this Monday morning are subtle, quiet, pondering thoughts for God. Or maybe for a wordy blog post later tonight 😉
Either way, for now, it’s just a few subtle Monday morning pictures of a sundress and Swedish clogs.

Late Summer

Back to sundress weather, with a sweater! I love this weather, and can’t get enough. 
In Minnesota, I call it “Shorts & Sweatshirt” weather.
I wish you could see the darling detail on this dress better. It has “apron” style pockets, and little bows on the shoulders. So fun and cheerful! It’s a garden-party of a dress.

I’m working hard on fitting in lots of wonderful summer adventures before fall arrives, and before I move.
That means ice cream after work, hanging laundry on the line, going to tag sales, picnics, going to the drive-in (gah I haven’t been this year! I MUST go!), hiking, etc.

And BAKING, of course! There are oodles and oodles of farmer’s market inspirations…have you guys discovered the late-summer raspberries that are amazing right now? I can’t get enough.

Have a great weekend, friends! 
Make the most of every moment…but don’t forget that relaxing counts, too!
xo!

Summer Layers

Did you feel it?
That subtle beckoning from autumn in the form of a cool breeze, reminding us to get our fill of gelato, berries and warm nights on the porch before things turn crisp?

I can’t lie, it felt a little bit wonderful. I’m not actually ready for fall, but I AM ready for a break from this extra hot summer! Just a few weeks of perfectly-warm days would be most excellent. I haven’t been to a drive-in movie yet, and I haven’t had my fill of maple creamees either. 

When we get down to it, I love layers because they are cozy. I’m such a creature of comfort. I’m SUCH a sweatshirt girl. Luckily, this light orange sweater is a linen blend, so I can have my layers and my summer, too! 🙂 
Now, weather, please cooperate with my plan for the next few weeks. K, thanks.
xo!

Easter Sunday

Petals in my hair and wind in my skirt! Ha.
Colors, colors, COLORS!

I entertained a few friends after church for Easter dinner, and the tablescape made me feel so happy! 
Good food, fun, and fellowship. What a fantastic way to celebrate our Risen Savior. 
He is Risen, and He is coming again. Amen!

Robin’s Egg Blue

{Goodness gracious I love this color!!!}
{and at first I thought I’d never find an outfit to wear that little cardigan. Ha!}
{I’ll just consider myself Zooey Deschanel’s sister, mmmkay?}
{nail polish that matches nature}

{baubles that match each other}

{vintage-y flats}

{those delicious colors again}
This darling little robin’s egg dress is one of my new favorite things. I have it hanging up in the living room just because it’s so pretty. I get that from my mother, who always used to hang pretty things up for me to look at when I was sick. Color is good for the soul, don’t you think? Especially in early spring, when the weather is still just teasing us. I can hardly wait to wear this nice rayon/linen dress in summer.
