my gorgeous girls

I seriously have the most
gorgeous girlfriends.

(both on the inside & out!)

Last weekend we celebrated a
birthday with the fabulous Miss Abby
and had a fun girlie night of
delicious food & lots of giggling.

We all decided that we might need to
start celebrating half-birthdays
soon so that we can dress up and go
out together more often.

So ladies, who's birthday
(real or imaginary) is next?

Lately, I find myself being drawn to
any images with purple - especially flowers!

Aren't they stunning?
And what are you infatuated with
these days?

look at the stars...

Coldplay makes me a happy girl.

Yesterday, I was telling the bf
that if I had my own personal soundtrack
(everyone else wants that too, right?)
I would want Coldplay to be my
default background music.

Wouldn't that be grand?

summer pretty

How gorgeous is this girl?

I love this summery white dress,
low sandals and giant bag.

Summer is my favorite!

welcome, summer.

Super busy week,
and all I can think about is
escaping to play/lounge outside.

(preferably near the water)

All of this delightful summer weather
is making me a very, very happy girl.
I know it's freakish, but I can't
get enough of this heat!

Oh, and only two days until
the family arrives - I can't wait!!

While enjoying a cup of coffee this morning
and perusing this fabulous magazine,
I read about a portland hip hop girl
who just happens to sell vintage clothes.

I immediately went to check out
her etsy shop and fell in love with this
about two seconds later.

(Sadly, it's not my size, so someone
else had better snatch it up quickly)

Pretty gorgeous, huh?

How sweet is this?

Happy Friday, my friends!

i like this.

Oh Lord, you are my God;
I will exalt you and praise your name,
for in perfect faithfulness
you have done marvelous things,
things planned long ago.
(Isaiah 25:1)

I've been loving these pictures for a while now.

Every one is completely different...

...but don't you feel like you could
take a really good nap in any of them?

Which one's your favorite?

lunch date.

I just had the most delightful lunch
with this fabulous girl.

We ate yummy food together,
shopped for cheery fabrics,
and had some fun girl talk -
everything you could want in a lunch date!

I love my girlfriends -
they are the best!

How cute is this shirt?

Simple but fun typography
makes me smile every time!

good quote

I like this.

It's challenging and hopeful
all at the same time.

Plus it's pretty to look at,
which obviously helps!

How great is this dog?!

This picture totally makes me want to go
throw sticks and chase puppies on the beach...

Hope you find some time to play this weekend!

le sigh

Isn't this stunning?

It makes me want to take a deep breath
and just stop to enjoy how serene she looks.

Not to mention classic and gorgeous.

Now if only I could look that fabulous in those glasses.
(Sadly, I tend to just look silly...)

um, wow.

Today I'm lusting after this house in
Mexico in the worst sort of way.

Overlooking the ocean?

Swimming pool on the roof?

Hammock on a cozy terrace?

Now if I only had the money to write
a check
and make it mine...

One of our SAC favorites is graduating and
heading off for great new adventures,
which is sad and exciting all at the same time.

When thinking about her imminent departure,
Twin and I came to the logical conclusion that an evening
of food and laughter would be the best solution.

It was.

And let me tell you, we should all eat sherbet more often.
The world would be a better place.

Another day has almost come and gone
Can’t imagine what else could go wrong
Sometimes I’d like to hide away somewhere and lock the door
A single battle lost but not the war

‘cause tomorrow’s another day
And I’m thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain

It’s almost like the hard times circle ‘round
A couple drops and they all start coming down
Yeah, I might feel defeated,
I might hang my head
I might be barely breathing - but I’m not dead

Tomorrow’s another day
And I’m thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain

I’m not gonna let it get me down
I’m not gonna cry
And I’m not gonna lose any sleep tonight

‘cause tomorrow’s another day
And I’m thirsty anyway
So bring on the rain...

my girl.

...did this over the weekend!

Here's her entourage looking all proud...

(aren't we a good looking bunch?!)

...and here she is with her man.

(who was endlessly patient and awesome all weekend)

We got to hang out in her gallery space and admire all of her gorgeous pictures and hard work...

...and of course take lots of pictures of us together!

(we're all terribly proud, if you couldn't tell)

And as the one behind the camera all weekend, I got lots of these fun self-portrait shots...

...but these two with momma & daddy-o are my favorites!

Happy Graduation, Sister.
You did it, and I'm so proud of you!

Sister is graduating from college this weekend, so I'm off for a time of celebration and family!

I'm so proud of her I could almost burst, so I can't wait to hug her and tell her so!

Happy weekend, friends.

more peace.

This post really resonated with me.

Peace is something I'm really clinging to these days, and I love that she uses the words wild and fierce to describe peace. Sometimes it's easy to think of peace as an escape or an easy way out, but I don't think so.

In my opinion, choosing peace is sometimes the most difficult choice you can make....thoughts?

This basically sums up how I look at the world most mornings...

As long as the sun is shining and the sky is blue, I figure we're all going to be okay!

You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.

Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock Eternal.

Yes Lord, walking in the way of your laws,
we wait for you;
your name and renown
are the desire of our hearts.

My soul yearns for you in the night;
in the morning my spirit longs for you.

Lord, you establish peace for us;
all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

(Isaiah 26:3-4,8-9,12)
