Dreaming of Fall

I always enjoy summer and all the fun it brings (ie, beach days, margaritas made with fresh grapefruit juice, and falling asleep to the sound of Sea World fireworks to name a few). But hands down, fall is my favorite time of year. For several weeks I’ve been itching for cooler weather, cozy fall clothes, […]

Loving: Sevenly

How sweet is this delicate anchor bracelet? It would look lovely with a stack of gold bangles, watch, or just on its own. You can find it at Sevenly, a brilliant company that donates $7 from each purchase to a different charity every week. Isn’t that lovely? I hope you had a beautiful Labor Day […]

Sound Check: Remember My Name

This lovely Malaysian singer named Yuna is worth a listen – I’ve really enjoyed listening to her sweet voice the last few weeks. I also wish I could pull off a head scarf like she can, don’t you? She picked up songwriting at the age of 19 while in law school. I’m so glad she did! Happy […]

Especially now since the Mr’s schedule requires […]

Going Away

It was just over a year ago that the Mr and I began our journey into Navy life. I’ve been thinking lately how thankful I am that his training so far has been a success, and how far along we’ve come. It’s been quite an adventure so far! Before he left for basic training in […]
