Red, White, and Bows

Wow, I look just like my mother in this picture.

This whole space behind the church reminded me of The Chronicles of Narnia.

O beautiful for spacious skies and having Christmas break. Yeah, I just sang that aloud. It feels amazing to finally have Austin on break with me and today was the first day this week, that I didn't have anything to do, so talk about feeling liberated. I worked out, did laundry, watched Mad Men, tried on a whole bunch of clothes in my closet, starting packing for our ski trip next week and got outside in the perfect, sunshiney, cool weather to take some pictures at a church.

I tried on stuff in my closet to remind myself how much clothing I have and that I have no need to go shopping, even though I'd love to go thrift just to thrift. I’m glad I did, too, because I found this dress that I’ve only worn once (thrifted: $3.50) and the jacket, which I’ve never worn (thrifted: $7.50) AND the shoes which i’ve never worn (thrifted: $2.50). Needless to say, it was a successful shopping trip in my own wardrobe and despite having nowhere to go, I felt like being girly..because I can be..cause I'm a girl.

Anyhow, I'm ready to be in the mountains. I can't wait to take pictures there and maybe just set up a shack on a portion of the mountain to live it. That sounds nice, right?

Ok, hopefully we'll be out celebrating for the rest of the night after we finish watching the Stars game...or maybe I'll just finish doing laundry. I don't care either way cause it's the weekend of Christmas break and I can do what I want. That, my friends, feels amazing.

Couldn't agree more about not being able to wait for the pictures we will take in Colorado. I can take these pictures for your blog!I absolutely cannot wait. Also, you have inspired me to want to go through my closet and find old beauties I haven't worn in forever. You look amazing as usual. I love those tights. :))
