Photography & Thoughts // By the Sea & I Peter


   Hello all! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend thus far and getting ready for a lovely Sunday. Remember last weekend when I mentioned taking photos at the beach? Well, here are a few shots from that day! You'll notice that it was a distinctly overcast day, so nearly everything is cast in gray. To me, it is fitting for the drama and wild beauty of the sea.

Outfit || Stripes 'n' Neutrals


   Hello everyone, how has your weekend been so far? My Saturday has been the first day without great pain for a while. Most of this week I had a terrible toothache, and ended up needing a root canal on Thursday morning! Thankfully, today I have been feeling quite a bit better than I had been (especially after sleeping in!) and was able to go to the beach with my family and enjoy some photography with that perfect overcast lighting. Though sometimes painfully aware that I'm an amateur, behind the lens is one of the places I am happiest - my fellow shutterbugs probably know just what I mean! :)

Lifestyle || Bedroom Redecoration

Check out this amazing anchor lamp and coral-themed plate!
  One's home decor is a reflection of who they are and what they most enjoy. A place of solace from the busy world, a bedroom is a place where we should feel relaxed and ready to take a nap or read for bit. Just over a month ago, I realized that my own room was looking a bit too juvenile. Thus began the fun project of redecorating my space with my favorite colors and themes. I hope you enjoy seeing the results and perhaps even pick up a few amateur decorating tips!

Outfit & Thoughts // Encourage-mint


   Pardon the pun, dear readers. I've been in a pun-making mood today and decided to consolidate the key words of my post into a ridiculous hybrid. ;) As you may have noticed by now, nearly all shades of blue-green are my favorite colors. Thus, when I find a mint top my size it is a treasure indeed! Meanwhile, I have been in need of some encouragement(/mint) lately and thought I would share with you some scripture that I have found uplifting!

Outfit || Professional Red


   Hello there readers! After a time with no inspiration or motivation for blogging (Okay, it was like a week and half ;P) I decided it was time to do something! A free evening and plenty of daylight saving sunshine after work really makes taking photos and writing a post much easier.

Outfit || Coral Summer


   Hi all, and a happy summer to you! Here in my neck of the woods, the day became bright and clear by late morning. The weather is warming up, and the yearning to be outdoors has awakened in our hearts as blue skies smile overhead.

Outfit // Retro Lace


    Hello all! Hmm, it seems that I blog on a different day every week now doesn't it? Such is the life of a hobby blogger and indeed, such is the life of everyone! Our days are full of ups and downs, free time and busy time, surprises and daily duties. Now and then the Lord gives us little gifts (material or intangible) that put a smile on our face in the midst of it all. One of recent gifts for me was this skirt!

Outfit // Think Pink


   Hello all, and happy Sunday! Hopefully you, as I, have been enjoying a relaxing day before getting back to the stresses of work, school, and household duties. Today I was talking to a friend about how truly important it is to have a day of rest. God's design for a day off from labor is the best plan; We can spend time worshiping Him and having fellowship with other believers as well as giving our bodies a break from working. Good stuff, right?
