You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you.
¬†… so have a great birthday!!
You handsome fella. I’m a lucky girl.
Can’t wait to celebrate. And dote on you. And attempt carrot cake for you. Cause I know it’s your fave.


Summer is ponytail, braidy twisty up-do’s, and high-bun season. I think I’ll be taking advantage of this as many days as possible to avoid the irksome irritation of hair sticking to the back of my neck, absorbing heat. It’s also dress season. Which also leads to less sweat. And more girliness. Who can say no to that? I thought I’d put together a couple little collages for all ya’ll featuring some of my fave dresses from Pinterest.

Live Free.

This is how I feel about it being Friday:





top: f21, shorts: f21, belt: f21, hairbows: wet seal, shoes: thrifted
Summer comes and Minneapolis becomes jungle-ish. For about 4 months, we get to feel like Californians. Minus Beverly Hills and the ocean. Oh well, we make due with Summitt Ave and our lovely lakes. Speaking of. Have I told you that I’m somewhat obsessed with volleyball? Well. I am. Patrick and I are joining a whole crew of our pals to play sand volleyball at Lake Calhoun this weekend. I don’t know if I will be able to sleep Friday night.
And here’s a little spiritual snack for all ya’ll…
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free!” Galatians 5:1
So let’s stinkin live free.
