1 - love my scarf from Ecoshag and in a super giggling mood / 2 continuing to fall head over heels for this man / 3 - crunching the leaves under my favorite Minnetonka Moccs / 4 - got 'em bangs and hair cut / follow me via instagram at @muchloveilly

day 21. a list of links to your favorite posts in your archives.

this week has been a complete whirlwind, so i am running very behind on le challenge. i also am lacking on much mental capacity so we are going with this easier challenge. and actually it was really fun to look through some of my old posts - lots of good memories and growing moments. so for those who have been here since day 1 can have fun reminscing with me, or if you are brand new, get to me and my little ole blog just a wee bit more!

i never would have imagined where blogging would take me when i wrote this post.

this one was absolutely one of the happiest days of my entire life.

includes some of my favorite pictures ever. sorry about the mushiness. mmkay, not sorry.

saying goodbye is always hard to do.

first outfit post ever and made a promise that i broke.

meeting blog friends is always a heck of a good time: here and there.

we are a little obsessed.

this weekend was about more than being around crazy teens and tackling the great outdoors.

i am an ugly crier.

making this apology before i felt like i was going to explode.

super high up there on the list of happiest days ever: here and here and here.

any post involving my family being together is def one of my faves.

spent my first Christmas away from home but feeling welcomed by my new family.

he really, really loves me.

marriage is a learning experience.

sometimes, always, and never.

on the edge of something.

good thing, i gotta to head out the door and grab dinner with Ryan or else, i would be going on and on with this list. i would be very impressed if you made it through every single link!

it made me think how one day i'd love to turn this blog into a book - not one i'd publish to the public, but rather one for myself to pass on to my kids or to keep alongside with all of my journals...since this blog has been one of my favorite ways to document my every day. and as always, thanks for reading - enjoy! xo

much love.
{happy wednesday, friend.}
