Roses are red….

February 16, 2015


I hope you all enjoyed your weekend or Valentines day, I know I did. To be honest the Valentines day started off rough with stresses but towards the afternoon and throughout the evening it got much better (except our wallet, the cold, cold weather and my feet hurting in these boots as we did a lot of walking) but it was worth it.
My hubby and I ended up walking around a Salvage yard or building looking for inspiration for décor, taking pictures of items we liked and took these outfit photos near by. It was bitterly cold out but my hubby and I champed the wind.
DSC02341I am blessed to have this man in my life. We talked about the good times in our marriage. Fact: Before we had kids we used to read self-improvement books many of them being on marriage and relationship, and anything by Dave Ramsey. We used to cook great meals, eat out at restaurants several days a week, and just enjoy peace in the mornings at Starbucks. Bpsh not any more. But God is still good and we have new memories that we are making and that in itself is a joy.

    What a gorgeous outfit and perfect for Valentine’s Day! We went to a few architectural antique stores and its such fun to walk around places like that and see all the unique pieces they have! (although it was also bitterly cold…)
