Flutter Sleeves & Browning Leaves...

It feels like forever since I have done a style post.  This dress is new sent by miss Kelsi at Brightersides Blog.  She didn't find the fit cohesive with her body type so I was the lucky recipient instead.   I could see her issue as even on my 5'4" structure it is a tad short, but the fabric is very sheer which will make for a great option come the even hotter months.  You can see by the changing colors that those months are not too far away.  

 Dress: ModCloth // Hat: Thirfted Vintage // Shoes: Thrifted Steve Maddens

Photo Sessions :: Trisha & Nate


This weekend I got to photograph my second wedding.  The bride and groom where so much fun which took a bit of the pressure off.  I swear I feel more nervous come wedding day as photog than I did as a bride at my own!  Everything was beautiful and the bride and groom are such fun!  

Congrats Trisha & Nate!

Over the last couple of months I have been debating whether or not to proceed with my Manic Monday feature on the blog.  I had developed a certain style for these posts over the span of 62 weeks, so when the inspiration began to run dry I began to feel stuck.  While taking a break and I felt inspired to create a wish list and thought "well why not share this on Monday... and why can't it be my Manic Monday?"

Lately I have been listening to a lot of Mumford & Sons.  I find their music soothing and uplifting all rolled into one lovely folk influenced package.  It's even had me inspired to start playing an instrument again, although I can't seem to officially decide between a ukulele or a mandolin?  I have also been drooling over Bagy Bag's handmade backpacks.  They are so perfect and I feel like I must have one before semester starts!

Restricted Access

As you may have noticed my blogging has been a bit sporadic and anything but regular. I have been slightly frustrated technologically. We currently have two mac computers, which you would think would make life pretty sweet, but not always. They are both older and past the point of being updated to the most recent software causing me to feel disheartened and completely restricted from creative freedom.

 I tend to be the type to shut down when things (not people) are not behaving the way I expect them to.  I find excuses for why the issue cannot, and will not, be fixed by any recommendations only frustrating myself further while also frustrating those who are attempting to redeem the situation.  Not one of my most flattering attributes, but I am human and I am flawed.  The best you will get out of me during one of these fits is a cautionary intro that I am in a "mood" and not to waste the time in trying to cheer me up, it will be short lived and after a brief rant it will pass.

I have never had a computer of my own.  Sounds crazy seeing as my whole life pretty much revolves around the computer, but it's true.  We have been fortunate to be part of a family who is constantly upgrading and advancing in the tech world leaving us the grateful receivers of said "hand me downs".   It's a pretty sweet deal, but with all I am doing it can be so maddening to see those little error messages proclaiming that said new toy just isn't up to speed and you have been denied access to play with all the other kids.  "No software for you!"

Luckily it is that time of year where you ponder what to do with that tax return and Christopher Robin made the decision to invest it back into getting us our first new computer and I couldn't be more excited!  The only problem now is that all I can do is think and daydream about all the adventures the new computer and I will have and every time I turn on another computer I can't help but hold their restrictions against them.

So lately I have been trying to focus on things outside of the net space.  Hiking, exploring, and even trying our hands at a little bit of gold panning down by the river.  It's been nice and relaxing while taking my mind off of the computer that won't be here until next week.  So expect to see me then and maybe CR will have some gold to show you seeing as the only thing I seemed to pan was fresh water clams!

Love & Lollies...
