Casual Sunday

 A nice breeze and a little summer dress makes Sunday a good day. In my home Sunday is a day of rest and rest we do. One of my favorite outfits to lounge in is a feather light dress and sturdy shoes. You never know when an impromptu stroll will occur.  
Balance is a big factor and while the denim jacket lends to the "I just threw this on" look it also compensates for the shorter hemline. "simplify, simplify, simplify" sometimes its nice to wear very little makeup and accessories. Just some pearl studs and mascara to top it off.  
The beautiful backdrop for the day is my clothes line. Going green is at our fingertips! Whether you live in a crowded city or on a great expanse of land the options are incredible for clothes lines. Conserve energy and save money on your electric bill during the summer. And there's nothing like the smell of fresh sun/breeze dried clothes.

One for One

 I recently purchased a pair of Tom's, these shoes have not left my mind since the moment I saw them. It was love at first sight. I like to think the feeling was mutual!
From the pretty eyelet detail, to the comfort and versatility these shoes are great. They come in many different colors and patterns. Tom's is also branching out to include heels and lace-ups. Did I mention that for every pair of Tom's that are sold a child in need will be GIVEN a pair. The only buyer's remorse I feel towards these shoes is that I didn't buy them sooner!!! I will admit it felt nice when it came time for check-out "buy one get one free" is the best sale of all.                 Until next time friends! <3

Into the past.

Today is my Grandmother's Birthday. Little did I know I would be the one to receive a gift! The story of how a very young, beautiful, and (a little bit) unprepared couple met in the 1950's. A political rally is the setting where a newly returned G.I. saw the prettiest girl with the darkest curly hair he had ever seen. After "shooting the breeze" as my Ma had said the soldier put his arm around the "little lady" and asked if she saw the shooting star over her head? When she looked up he planted the first kiss she had ever received on her pretty pink cheek. Pa is the only man my Ma has ever kissed since then. The young man took his new prize to the first picture show she had ever been to that night. Needless to say neither mentioned  the results from the Governor's Election.
 Learning about our past is learning about who we are. This entire story plus many more were told over a big bowl of peas (Grown by Pa) being shelled and the television had been turned off.
 It makes me wonder what other things we miss out on because of busy schedules and "more important things" just my thoughts for the evening.  Until next time friends! <3
