Misc || Tea Cup And Mug Exchange


   Hello all! I hope you are enjoying your November thus far. This chilly month is just perfect for a hot cup of tea, isn't it? It's also an excellent time for the Tea Cup and Exchange Reveal at The Enchanting Rose! I had the privilege of joining the exchange for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. Take a look at my part in the fun of this event!

Vintage & Thoughts || Bridal Gown / Beloved by Christ


   Well ladies, I have a special treat for you today! No, I'm not getting married or taking my final vows to become a nun...;). Instead, I had the privilege of modeling a beautiful vintage bridal gown. Some time ago, friends of mine came across this dress and thought of me and my blog. They were sweet enough to pass it along to me, and after a shamefully long wait, I am sharing the lovely gown with you!

Outfit || Awesome 80's


   Hi all! It's been a couple of weeks, hasn't it? I hope that you have been enjoying a lovely October. I don't know about you, but I seem to know of quite a few birthdays in this part of the month! Last night I dressed up in some eighties duds to help a friend celebrate her 30th birthday...retro-style!

Outfit || Floral Autumn


  Hello all! How are you this fine October Sunday? Here, the season has certainly changed over the past couple of days. A crisp, cool wind has been blowing, bringing with it the prime time for tea, hot chocolate and lattes. In fact, my parents and I went out for coffee this afternoon. Below, you'll see me with a vanilla - not pumpkin spice - latte in my hands. ;)

Photography || Summer Scenes


   Hello all! I hope you are doing well this last half of September. It's strange to think of how far into the month we already are! Signs of autumn are showing up here...rain...boots...pumpkin spice lattes. As we come to the beginning of the end of summer, I would like to share several images I captured on various adventures over the past few months.

    Ladies, before viewing the photos, please take a moment to look at the event button on the sidebar. I was shamefully late in putting it up, so I apologize for that. Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose hosts lovely tea cup and mug exchanges; This is my first time participating and I look forward to putting together and receiving a package at this 11th exchange! There is just about one day left to sign up!

Outfit & Thoughts || Anchored




"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world."
John 16:33

   Good evening, everyone! I hope that you are all safe and well. While things are fairly peaceful this weekend in my little corner of the world, it seems that natural disasters are abounding across the earth. We know that we have tribulation in this world, but believers in Christ must cling to His victory over sin and death. We know the end of the story.

Outfit || Ombre Chambray


   Hi there readers! I hope all of my fellow U.S. folks are staying safe from the fires and storms demolishing different areas of our homeland. Let us remember to be prayer for those in the wake of the damage. Meanwhile, I know many of my high school and college followers have likely started school. May your studies go well and may you be able to maintain focus on the most important things in life in the midst of busyness and stress. :)

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!
