Thoughts || Unique

   I don't like sewing. No, I mean, I really don't like sewing - it makes me cry. The fact of my dislike used to bother me. You see, I never really fit the typical Christian home-schooled girl mold. I had little to no interest in things like sewing, cooking, and playing violin. I found more enjoyment in drawing, writing, and playing with dogs. Now in my early twenties, I still don't fit the mold. I can cook a square meal, but don't make homemade bread. And I get out my creative juices with photography rather than making clothes. Some of you might be thinking "big deal", but those of you raised in the same kind of community that I was will understand why my uniqueness has bothered me. Maybe you have a similar story.

Outfit || End-of-Summer Stripes

   Hullo friends! I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Mine has been full of rest, spur-of-the-moment fun things, and weather changes (dark colors and tights in summer weather can be a bit uncomfortable)! To top it off, I'm here to share with you one of my new second-hand finds from a shopping day earlier this month. :)

Outfit || Princess

   When I turned three years old, my mother made me a hot pink tutu. Along with a matching veil and pink and teal striped leotard (it was the 90's, ok?) , I was ready to reign. As far as I can recall, that tutu was my first and last piece tulle clothing...until last weekend, that is. While out on a shopping expedition with my mom, I met a brand-new tulle skirt, fit for a grown-up princess.

Being in the Word #6 || How to Study

   Well friends, the time has come for the final post of Being in The Word. I hope this series has been inspiring and encouraging to you. Writing about being in God's Word has definitely pushed me into study. As they say, you really learn something when you teach it! In this wrap-up post, I would like to share with you the ways I have learned to study the Bible. May these become tools to help us further learn and apply scripture!

Outfit || Foggy Day Fashion

   Hi everyone! Well, I guess I'm a once-a-week blogger now. Life stops to wait for no one, and the hard times, busyness, and taking time for rest and fellowship has caught up with my blogging life. Rather than pushing myself to come up with two posts a week, I will make it my goal to post once a week. It may happen more or less often sometimes, depending on how the week is going. Part of blogging is being able to enjoy it, and I think paring down will help me to have more fun, and hopefully maintain blog quality!

Being in the Word || #5 To Have Light

   Happy beginning of the week readers! It's time for the last "reason" post for the Being in the Word series! Next time, we will wrap it up with a few pointers on how to study the Bible, Lord willing. I shan't get too ahead of myself though...;) Let's study the LIGHT of God's word.

Outfit || August in Retro

   Do you ever have one of those rare, precious bursts of inspiration in which a clear idea suddenly comes to you? Well, that's how the outfit I'm sharing today came together! After having it planned out for a few days, I wore it to church on Sunday. That sunny afternoon ended up being perfect for a photo shoot in the local garden! Mom and I met one of my co-workers and her dachshund there, and we enjoyed getting in some outfit photos and dog photography!

Travel || August Mini-Vacation

    Hi everyone, and happy weekend! You folks asked for photos from my trip, and here they are! I wasn't feeling up to continuing my series this week, so it actually worked out quite nicely to have something else to share. Please enjoy the beauties of California. :)

Outfit || Contrast

   Hi all! My personal outfit posts are back from vacation, apparently. ;) As a matter of fact, I'm back from a mini-vacation myself. My parents and I enjoyed a three-day weekend in which we stayed two nights at one of our favorite summer getaways. Perhaps I'll share some photos with you soon! For now, please let me present to you my latest outfit shoot.
