Goodbye Spring Break, Hello Spring

So this year, spring break actually took place before spring, but that’s the way the school year is.  I had a pretty good spring break.  Restful, but also I have this general feeling of being lost in life.  Not sure what I’m doing.  Feeling a bit purposeless. And yet I’m not too concerned about it.  I’m sure that something will shake things up.

The days move on, and suddenly, it’s spring.  We move our clocks forward.  A new season.  With new allergies.  I hear the birds chirping, and I hear the sounds of my thirty third birthday calling.  I feel old, and I don’t.  I am alive.  I am well bodied.  While the general world may be in chaos, I am not.  I am surprisingly well. I am thankful for God bringing me to this place, for my family, and for provision.  Though I feel the desire for more in my life, what I have is very good.  It is well with my soul.

Hello Spring. I’m happy to see you.

Piece of my Heart

So I like fashion a lot, but the problem is that I don’t always dress the way I’d like to.  Most of the time, I settle for frumpy and blah.  It’s easy, it’s comfortable, and it doesn’t take long.  However, when I look in the mirror sometimes, I get so disappointed and full of self loathing.

Since about the start of 2014, I’ve been trying to be a little better about really dressing and looking the way that I’d like to.  Not everyday, but certainly, a great deal more than I used to.  At least once or twice a week, I’ll do my hair, and I’ll look for a cute outfit to wear.  My latest goal is to only own clothes that I really love, so that I’ll be wearing something that I am always happy with.

This particular outfit made me extremely happy.  Most of it comes from Modcloth.   Piece of Your Heart Dress, and Lady in Rad (Navy) Boots on sale- they also sent me a nifty little card holder to attach to my phone.  Not quite sure where I got the tights- maybe from Target? Also, I did up my hair in victory rolls.
