Hello, hello there, 

Just a little pop in to say hello, while the wee fam and I are currently hanging out in Philly while the Mr. was invited to speak at several classes at the University we graduated from.  It's always fun to get out of town for a bit, but I will admit as it's been commonplace for us lately, I've definitely tired of living out of a suitcase, ya know?  On a brighter note, I will always welcome any alone time that the Mr. and I can spend together!   

Anyhow, this time around I've packed mostly thrifted or gifted items which I will admit, gives me a sense of satisfaction to know that under $20 was spent putting this look together.  I was ever so lucky as a duck that the very sweet Taylor, of Nothing but a Pigeon, was cleaning out her wardrobe and offered up this cheery eyelety orange frock for grabs.  Of course I grabbed it!  Along with that I had the best week ever of thrift finds which included this bug covered blouse and authentic Danish clogs circa the 70s.  Yeah, score for me!

Which brings me to this point: As new dresses are making there way into shop windows and gracing the pages of our favorite clothing sites, it's hard not to become tempted to drop some dough.  However I'm sticking to my guns and refraining from buying things I truly don't need, thrifting as much as I can, and occasionally shopping sales.  How about you?  Do you find yourself purchasing a new wardrobe with the change of the season or do you pinch your pennies and buy secondhand?

Do share!

Love Bunches,

Hello darlings, 

Well I'm certainly thrilled that this much snow is no longer covering the ground on my tiny little side of the mountain.  Yes!  I think I'm counting the days til I start seeing blossoms on the trees once again.  It's actually kind of hard to believe how quickly it all has melted over the past couple days when all winter long, my yard was covered in a blanket of white.  

Anyhoo, another busy week has passed me by and I beyond excited tonight to hit the road to see a concert with the Mr. and a group of our friends.  It's just the kind of get-away this gal needs as things are hustle and bustle preparing for the next round of Fine Arts with the youth drama team that I coach.  So for now, I'm keeping it brief, signing off and putting the day on pause as I prepare to hit the open road and enjoy some good music and good company.

Until next time...
Love Bunches,

Hello and happy friday darlings!

No, I'm not on vacation.  Gosh, do I wish I was though!  It may be safe to say that my little home on this mountainside has endured it's last bad snow of the winter season...ok, so probably wishful thinking considering where I live, but I'm keeping a sunny outlook, ya know?  So as it goes, I was looking back through the archives and stumbled across this post of photos that never got published and boy was I ever in the mood to throw on a pair of sandals, shorts, and tie up my top again.  

Anyways, last September, the little fam and ventured yet again down to Hilton Head Island for a week of sand and sun.  This is pretty much what it looked like.  French pastries for breakfast watching the sunrise, morning bike rides under the palm trees, long days at the beach, lunch by the pool, seafood dinners, and evening strolls and trips for gelatos...yep perfect and a definite contrast to every day normal life.  As winter has been very busy and a little rough, I pretty much so dream of weeks like this with plenty of blue skies, no stress, and living at a very slow pace.   Don't we all?

So there you have, I'm in a summer daze looking out my window at the white winter snow as I grip my cup of coffee tightly to keep my hands warm.  I'm surely counting down the days til spring, tying up my tops and baring my legs once again.

Wishing you simplicity and sunshine for the weekend ahead,
Love bunches,
