On This Good Day

Seriously, could I be having a better hair day?? It seems like last week was painful with how uncooperative my hair was being, but today is different – today it’s been nice!! Hooray!! Even better, I’ve been super productive. I have a very strict work schedule that I keep to, to ensure that I get orders out on time – and amazingly, for the first time EVER I’m ahead of schedule. Like way ahead. Like so ahead that I started do mending projects (hey Annelise I’m finally hemming that dress for you!!). It’s a good feeling, because honestly sometimes I just feel swamped – like yesterday, which sucked… the stress of potty training Bunny almost had me in tears and my serger was practically useless to me because the blade was suddenly blunt (how on earth can something dull that quickly?!)- but it’s nice, once it a while, when it all works, and I”m on fire. So yay for today! I hope you’re all having a great day too!

ooh! This a gorgeous outfit. I adore pink with nudes and browns. And those buttons on the skirt are so adorable. Sigh. I officially love fashion and looking at other peoples style blogs WAY too much. And congrats on being ahead of schedule, such a great feeling. xx veronika

Your super soft neutral colors are beautiful in the snow! And the hair? Yep. Perfect.

That is such a hot little skirt for something that seems so demure! I love that about your clothing–body-conscious without being too revealing. It’s just lovely. And flattering! (And yes, your hair looks great, too…)

While everyone else is commenting on how cute you look, which you do, I’m writing to say, “Hang in there with the potty training!” Hee hee. It’s one of the toughest phasest for almost all of us, but we survive somehow. And so do the kids. :-) May God bless and multiply all your efforts in motherhood!

Iowas misses you! But you probably don’t miss it (5 degrees today).

Thank you for posting the color of the tights. I have never ordered from that site because all the colors are overwhelming to me! Seeing a color on a real person helps me a lot! Love the colors in this outfit!
