I am sure you are wondering where I disappeared to these past few months. . . Well, our family went through a long bought of sickness, I’ll spare you the details, but there was at least one member of our family sick for 6 weeks straight! Ugh! Some of us are still recovering.
Summer season is in full swing here in Michigan, although sometimes the weather can’t quite make up its mind. One day 48* and others 84*. I have had a lot of fun pulling out my summer things one by one and delving into summer fashion! Our swimming pool is open and Mama has even gone to the beach once with a friend! Our Summer Antique Markets that we participate in and sell at have started. We have had a blast meeting new people and sharing Christ to customers.
Over the last few months, some fun things have been happening! I got a part time job working for my Mama’s cousin, sewing reflective light vests. The are super cool and I am enjoying the new experience of working for someone else. I could not be happier and it is a really cool job!
I have had the AWESOME opportunity to go and visit my sweet friend and fellow blogger Julia! Her and her family were such a blast to hang out with! It was so fun to get to hang out with and “older sister” and do a bunch of girly things! The first day with her we just hung out and chatted and I was the first one to read part of her new book DIAMOND, which was awesome I must say. More on that later. The second day we went shopping in the morning and the prepared for her Fantabulous Birthday Party that was that night! It was so fun! And gorgeous! she sure knows how to throw a beautiful party! The next day, we were tired so we hung out, watched Emma by BBC, and some of an old TV show Scarecrow and Mrs. King. So cute. That night my bro, (who was helping my grandparents pack, they lived close to the Erickson’s) came and we played games until 10:00 PM! It was a blast. We said our sad goodbyes and then my brother and I traveled home with my Grandparents who were moving from GA to MI. It was my first time flying and I had so much fun! I felt so blessed that God would allow the trip. Every little thing just fell into place and took each and every little thing as a gift from him. From the fact that the trip happened on Julia’s birthday, to safe travel, to just getting to live with her for three days, I just was so wowed by how awesome our God is! Seeing Him in the “little things” is important and makes me see how much He loves us!
This Sunday, I decided to wear this pretty new top that I got from where else? a Thrift store and I paired it with a denim skirt and some bohemian jewelry and hairstyle. If someone asked me what my personal style was, I would probably say that I am a mix of Classic and Bohemian. My brothers all tease me because I love wearing a ton of bracelets! Boys. They just don’t understand these things, ya’ know?

One of my hopes with this blog is to encourage girls (and ladies) that they can dress modestly, femininely, and frugally with ease, and still look fabulous!
