{this moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

July Birthdays

July is a big month for birthdays - all the important men in my life celebrate their birthdays this month. First, there was my dad's birthday. Then my brother's. And today is my guy's birthday. Above is the card I drew and watercolored for him. Happy birthday, sweet guy! My life's a whole lot more fun with you in it.

Fourth of July

I hope you all had a happy Fourth if you celebrate, and a great weekend if you don't!

Strawberries from my friend's garden.

Things have been busy around here, and I had a jam-packed weekend (no pun intended, though the weekend did include some homemade strawberry jam). ;)

My long weekend was full of family, friends, and food. We celebrated my dad's birthday (happy birthday, Dad!), I had a very good friend in town visiting, and there were several gatherings, most of which included delicious food consumed outside.

I also spent a lot of time berry-picking, all in my own backyard.

And of course, I love the chance to dress with a theme! Here's my outfit for the Fourth of July:

Outfit details:
* Dress and shoes - thrifted from Everyday People.
* Belt - from Rewind Vintage.
*Clutch - inherited from my grandma.

This little heart-shaped leaf makes me smile.
