Thinking about: What to do with my family pictures. We just got them back, and to put it lightly, I'm head over heels in love! Lexy Popa Photography made my dreams come true. I neurotically obsessed about these pictures for months. From time of year, to what to wear, location, even the look and feel. I had it all envisioned in my head, and I was nervous that it just wasn't going to come out as perfectly as I pictured. Instead, it surpassed my expectations. Photos to me are such a gift. A timeless memory of where our family is at right now. She did an amazing job capturing the joy and personalities of each of my children and of the family together. Priceless, I tell you!
Okay, which brings me to my question... what do I do with all of them? I have been known to plaster our faces all over our walls. So I definitely will be changing out some frames. But I have been playing with the idea of doing photo transfers onto wood or canvas. My sister-in-law gifted me some wood transfers and I love them. I looked up how to DIY but it seems pretty complicated and a little hit or miss. I love the look, but I don't know if I trust myself. Please, tell me your thoughts and experiences. I need a little nudge in one direction or another. ;)
Dying for: This skirt.
I am so in love with the new floral trend for spring and summer. And a pencil skirt is one of my favorite silhouettes. I love getting dressed up for work, but I also think this skirt would be a perfect date night/mass/summer wedding/even brunch with the family skirt. It can easily be dressed up, or even dressed down. I found this skirt on Pinterest c/o Life, Love and the Pursuit of Shoes, check out her amazing styling of it. So effortless and chic. Love! The sad part is I went to go buy it today, because its on SALE, but no, it's sold out. Cue broken heart.
Listening to: Tenth Avenue North. Their newest album The Struggle is so poetic and beautiful. "Don't Stop the Madness" brought me to tears today. Thank you Lord for reminding me how much I need you!
Watching: This weekend my husband and I watched "About Time." Such a cute, funny and good romantic comedy. The writing is done beautifully and the lessons that are weaved in and out are wonderful done. I don't often watch movies multiple times, but I would and will watch this one again. Love it!
Thankful for: Blogging. Thankful for Jenna and the hard work she puts into this little community. Thankful that I get to be a part of it in some small way. So very grateful that I have a place to come to write what is on my heart and let out some of my creativity. And even more grateful/surprised that so many of you write such loving comments and follow along on our journeys. It is such sweet solace to know that we are not alone. And I'm so very grateful that A Mama Collective is contributing to that much needed message that we are all in this together. So thanks ladies. I'm so very grateful for you all!
