Giveaway & Sneak Peek

Just a heads up!

Ashley from Bramblewood Fashion is hosting a giveaway for a dress from Shabby Apple! I absolutely love the clothing on the Shabby Apple's website (link). They are beautiful, flattering, fun, and most importantly, modest! (most of them anyway ;) ) I have the Sacred Falls dress that I got for a wedding, and it is absolutely beautiful. :) I have worn it three times since buying it, and it's great. 

Well, that's all I have to say for now. :) I had a really nice time at my friends' house, and I even got to *kind of* do my friend's senior pictures. It was very impromptu and I didn't know that much about what I was doing, but it was fun and we found some cool places to use as backgrounds. I will leave you with one picture from the shoot and *perhaps* you'll see more at a later time. :)



I am very sorry that I haven't updated this blog in such a very long time, and I would like to apologize in advance for not being able to post for a while either. 
You see, last weekend I went with my dad and older sister Meg, to New York. The purpose was to go to a Phil Keaggy concert (we have grown up listening to his music) where he was performing at a blues club in Times Square, and we ended up staying with my aunt who happens to live in the "perfect" town of Bronxville. I call it "perfect", because it is the sweetest little town with all the shops and stores you might imagine in a darling little town. I am sorry to say that there is not a designated candy store like you might conjure up in your mind, but almost everything else is a reality in Bronxville. There's a wedding dress store, a bakery, a book shop, a fish store, a grocery store, a hardware store, a tiny little movie theater, a train station, a funeral home, the most exquisite houses you have ever seen, and numerous clothing and specialty shops. 

But I didn't begin writing with the intent to describe this town that does have its faults. I came to tell you of why I haven't written and won't be able to write.
That was last weekend. Tomorrow my sisters and I are working at my uncle's house in the morning, and then we're having company int he afternoon. On Monday I am going to stay with our friends until Thursday, and then over that weekend I will be packing for my week-long trip to Florida with my aunt, sister Mary (I can't help but think of the movie "Persuasion" when I call her "sister Mary"), and cousin. We leave on Monday, get back the next Monday, and then (oh joy of joys!) on that Saturday I am attending a photography workshop! Perhaps I will have enough time to post a little more tomorrow, but for now I just have to go to bed. Goodnight. Sweet dreams. 

p.s. this post was very wonderful. you should read it. :)
