Words to live by......

Words to live by......: Photobucket
Life is full of beauty. Notice it.
Notice the bumble bee, the small child,
and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind.
Live your life to the fullest potential,
and fight for your dreams.

Happy Weekend

Happy Weekend:
Thanks for all your comments on the shower. The glass door has been installed and we are just waiting on one more light to install.

My fabulous father in law came to visit from IL, the kids are so excited to spend time with him.

I'll leave you with some beautiful pictures while we are off enjoying the weekend!

HAPPY *SWEATERS + SPARKLES* WEEKEND: I'm heading out to NYC today, but in my head, I'm still in Seattle dreaming of a quiet weekend...


I love the mix of sparkle and cozy in the latest Cardigan lookbook. It perfectly captures my PNW style and my love of sequins.


Because most days, let's be honest, I'd rather be wearing this...


Casual looks so much more fun when you've got a furry little scarf or flashy cardi to top it off!


Hope you all find a perfect mix of dress up and downtime this weekend!
