Hold Onto Your Hat

 So apparently I felt very inclined to hold on to my hat today...

I guess lots of big and exciting things are ahead.

Once again the humidity from the stormy weather was very heavy in the air.  My poor lil camera got a little sick from it, hence the blur.  I felt pretty courageous braving this monsoon though (yes, I'm being over-dramatic..hehe).  Valley Forge National Park is beautiful no matter what kind of weather floats it's way and Albert and I make use of every opportunity we get to drive through this majestic landscape here on our ventures home from Philly.

Anyhoo, hope you're having a completely wonderful week darlings. Next week I'll be on vacation down south.  While I am soaking up the sun (and hopefully not hurricane Irene), another gorgeous gal will be guest posting here for me.  Be sure to give her lots of love:)

Until then.

Love,

  5. This scenery is gorgeous! And so is this red dress on you dear!

    I always do the same thing with hats, touch then when taking my picture and I always end up wondering if I do it too in real life... ha ha :)

  8. I absolutely LOVE this dress on you and what a beautiful place! My camera has been hitting it pretty hard with the humidity as well, hurricane Irene is headed directly towards Georgia! We live only 2 and a half hours from the coast so it's pretty scary.. hopefully it won't be as bad as they are expecting it to be!

  10. You look so beautiful in that dress! I think I fell in love with it a bit more once I saw the skirt portion was pleated :) Gorgeous pictures as always.
