how he gets my heart to go pitter-patter.

 sweater, belt, turquoise ring: f21 / shorts: GAP / gold ring: charming charlie's / Java boots: Blowfish Shoes / watch: c/o Softslap

so...just to get it out of the way, please, excuse the random raindrops from the trees above,
awkwardly placed so not strategically all over on my sweater. 
as you were.

we're totally making the summer to autumn transition here in the south. haven't exactly put away the shorts, but the sweaters are getting pulled out from the back of the closet. i also got my hands on some candy corn today - made these taste buds pretty darn happy. i just need to find me the closest Starbucks and enjoy a pumpkin spice latte. that would so complete me.

and something totally random but made my my little heart go pitter-patter extra fast: when Ryan told me how sad was the Toddler and Tiaras story on the cover of his mom's People. he said that if we ever have a little girl one day, he'll tell her every single day, you are beautiful. sigh, i love that man so much. 

much love.
[happy wednesday, friend.]
