Would you believe that the older I get the more I hear people tell me how funny or witty I am? Lately it has become second nature for me and I attribute this to my dad.
My dad’s side of the family always cracks jokes or puns. My mom’s side, nada. Growing up this made for an interesting observation as my dad (often nostalgic) quoted comedians like it was his second skin and my mom and her family hadn’t a clue, which was amusing and still is to this day. For this I am thankful that I grew up with humor. In fact, at times I can quote “Monty Phythons: Holy Grail” with my brother and dad and we have a good ol’ time, but most people wouldn’t understand. Especially my mom. But that is the fun of it, and for that I thank my dad.
I thank my dad for not only the life he gave me, but for his humor, heart, kindness, love and appreciation of the good times and bad as he realizes all things are a part of God’s plan and he doesn’t hold bitterness but he is forgiving and loving. To my dad, thank you! I love you and Happy Father’s day!
Thank you for yesterdays compliments. I really enjoy being blonde and creating all the summer looks I can, like today’s simple but basic look. With the nearing of summer heat waves I am relishing in the cooler mornings and found this layering button up to be quite comfortable and laid back with my tank tee and linen pants (post on styling linen pants coming up tomorrow on Tiffany’s blog). This outfit was perfect for running errands and spending it at a Birthday party for my best friends little girl, but as the day got later the button up came off due to the humidity and I still felt confident and comfortable in this tank and linen. Perfect summer mom wear if you ask me.
What did you get from your father? How do you dress for those cooler mornings in the Summer?

This post had me so excited as I have enjoyed reading Amy’s blog daily and was encouraged by her announcement as my husband and I had been praying for her to receive the gift of motherhood. This just encourages me to keep praying as God answers things in His way and in His time. He never fails and I praise him for all that He does. Congratulations Amy and Russ!
I love this little romper look on Kristina. Perfect for marinas, beaches and hot summer days.
This lovely family of women are rocking their ankle pants style and sharing how to achieve so no matter what age and how different shoes can enhance the ankle pant look.
I loved reading and learning a few things about marriage through Erin’s post here as my husband and I of almost 6 years are always interested in how to keep the marriage and romance alive and gather inspiration from posts like this.
Another great post on how to persue your spouse and keep the romance alive. I am definitely trying these more often…starting with a phone call right after I type this to my spouse.
