normal is good + one rocking 2nd b-day.

 top: Belk / skirt: c/o Lulu*s / oxfords: c/o Blowfish Shoes / backpack (last season): c/o Le Mode Accessories / lipstick: Ruby Woo, MAC

wow. what a whirlwind of a summer so far. i have a hard time believe we are facing a brand new month - well, a brand new month about a week ago really. the calendar flipped to a new page while i was away at the beach with family, so i don't think it really set in until i came back home. 

and now i am back home. it's so good to be back with my husband and have a more "normal" schedule again. even getting to do laundry and clean the apartment and answer emails and work on orders has become rather comforting 'cause it feels...normal. also being able to come back home and cuddle with Ryan and make dinner for him or staying up late reading a book or catching up on tv shows, 'tis so wonderful. 

normal is good. 


oh, and last but certainly not least...today we celebrated our niece's 2nd birthday! it still blows my mind that Lily Rose turned two today. we were just celebrating her 1st  birthday yesterday - and even before that, i remember Cricket bringing her home from the hospital. happy birthday to you, Lily! we love you so much! 

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

  15. My first thought was the same as Katie's, LOOOOVE your outfit!! You look so cute, everything about it is cute!! Yes, being away from home and not doing your "normal" stuff kinda makes you miss it, and appreciate it more. Love the pic of you all with your niece, she is sooo adorable!! Kids grow fast, I tell ya!! :)
