Summer Afternoon Shoot


Darlings,
This last weekend when I went home I got to play 
photographer and my sister Melissa got to play model.


Despite the overcast weather and occasional 
raindrops we had the best time of times.

Doesn't she look gorg?

Birthday Treat

(Strawberry + Almond + Chocolate = HEAVEN)

Darlings,
Today I turn 22. 

Perfect day to ride my bike into town and 
treat myself to my favorite sweets.

It's been a really good day so far.

Woke up to message from S singing me Happy birthday (that man can SING!), 
got a call from mommy and daddy soon after, got out early from the hospital, 
the pastry shop in town hadn't run out of almond macaroons just yet, 
AND it is 90 degrees and sunny outside.

The only thing missing was being able to spend it with my love and family.
(Yay for going home in about 24 hours!)

Now to spend the rest of the evening in Starbucks hitting the books.

After all, it can't all be fun and games.... 
that's what the weekend is for.

Wedding Wednesday: Oahu, Hawaii

{via}

Darlings,
I have a serious weakness for beach/island weddings. The way nature is 
used as the main decor captures my heart time and time again.

From the glowing bride to the gorgeous color combo of corals and greens,
this wedding will sweep you right off your feet.

The Train Station

(Sweater: c/o lamixx)

Want to know how I spent my "Study Sunday"?

Sitting in the small station across the street with my 
notes watching the trains come and go.

Perfection.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Dolls, 
Make sure to check out this lovely lady's shop.

Every piece I own from Lamixx has become an absolute 
favorite of mine (Worn here and here). 

I'm sure you'll agree when you see her new collection.

Dinner at my place

(Dinner: Penne pasta w/ curry sauce and tuna - Dessert: Dove ice cream bar w/ strawberries)

Darlings,

There are days, more often than not, when all I want to do when I get home 
from the hospital is to change into my comfy clothes, set the table, 
play some Sinatra, and make a delicious dinner for one. 

Definitely the most perfect time to try out those 
marvelous recipes on Pinterest.
