While I'm slaving away in the library...

Because this week I'll be up to my head with finals and research presentations
I've decided to treat you with a guest post from one of my favorite ladies.

Dolls, this is Ashley.

She will capture your heart with her sweetness, amazing mommy stories, 
and impeccable sense of style.  Did you know she's also my long-lost twin?
Yep... with a fabulous Southern accent and gorgeous green eyes.


Hello lovely readers!
I'm Ashley from Hudson's Happenings
I am so happy to be guest posting here today on Mariel's beautiful blog! 
She is one of my most favorite people in this great big blogosphere....
I think she's gorgeous on the outside and inside! I know you all agree.

I live in Alabama, and lately, we have been enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures.
(which I'm absolutely ecstatic about!)

As the last days of February dwindle away,
I find myself dreaming about Spring.

These are a few of things that I love most about the upcoming season:

What's your favorite thing about Spring?

Packing Away

It's official.
In just eight days I'll be saying goodbye to the place that I've 
called home for these last four years...


I'll be heading to Chicago to start my clinical rotations and I'll
only make my way back here for graduation in August.

I started packing yesterday.

It's crazy how almost half of my possessions consists of textbooks and lecture portfolios.

Maybe in a couple of years it'll consist of more varied things.

Well, here is to surviving these next week of finals.
Pray for me!

"Wherever we are together that is home"

(Pictures from our first couple hours together)

There is only one word I can use to describe this last weekend...

That's always the word that defines my time with Sean.

After not seeing each other for almost two months you can imagine
our excitement to be able to spend three whole days together.

Every day was filled with the most wonderful moments,
and when it was time to say goodbye I felt as if a part
of me was leaving with him. 

Whoever said goodbyes get easier with time did not know 
what they were talking about.

Well, at least this time we'll only have to wait two weeks to see 
each other again.

Happy V-day

This is how I'll spend my day... 
After studying nonstop for the last three nights
all I want is to curl up in bed with my delicious 
strawberry cupcake
to be with this handsome man.

Unfortunately, I'll have to wait for the latter one
for a couple more days.

Happy Valentine's Day dolls! 
Happy Valentine's Day my love!

You can TWEET me now

I got a Twitter.

I know, I know.
I once said I would never get one
the times are changing.

Just kidding. 

That's not the REAL reason why I got one.

But still, feel free to check it out.

PS. Actually, I got it last August but was too embarrassed to admit it hehe... 
From now on, no more secrets.
Promise, Promise

John 13:34

Today in church I was reminded of the 11th commandment... 
One, that if lived by all, would bring so much peace to this world.
During this Valentine's Day weekend (and every day from now on) 
let's keep in our hearts and minds the most beautiful
commandment of them all. 

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one 
another just as I have loved you..."
John 13:34

(Jeans: Forever21, Heels: Worthington, Scarf: Forever21, Tank: Forever21, Shawl: The GAP)

Here are a few images from today.
As you can see, it appears like I have a 
serious obsession with neutrals... 
well, I wouldn't say "obsession".
I just really like 'em.

I swear there is some color in 
my room/closet.

I'll prove it to you dolls one day...

Bipolar Weather

Michigan is absolutely cray cray. 
At least, its weather is.

Just a couple of weeks ago I though I was 
in the midst of another ice-age and now
I'm enjoying temperatures in the mid forties. 

Today is wonderful, don't get me wrong, but it's 
just so confusing. It's getting my hopes up for 
spring and that ain't fair.

For all I know that first picture might repeat itself in 
a couple days... you just watch hehe.

PS. Happy February doll! Here is to the month of love.
