one good thing about being unemployed at the moment
is that i get to enjoy the beauty of spring.
any time i want.
i'm not sure i have ever loved spring so much.

.g + i spend plenty of time on the back deck.
i never knew there was so much beauty in our backyard.
filled with..


.butterflies.


.jet streams.


.pretty colors.

.funny faces from g.


.good stories.

.did i mention sunshine.


.swirly clouds.


.pretty pretty birds.


.+ gorgeous views.


not to mention bunnies. + deer. + cardinals.
daffodils. cherry blossoms. peonies. magnolia trees. + tulips.
+ my happy little family too.

spring always leaves me longing for more.
sandals + skirts. bright nail polish + ice cream cones. bicycle rides + sunny skies.
this spring i am fortunate enough to enjoy so many of these wonderful things.
but i am left longing for......

dresses.
so many pretty dresses.

this spring i can not get enough flowing, lovely, gorgeous, pretty pretty dresses.
i stumbled across .sarah seven. last week + have been loving them nonstop since.
+ since actually purchasing them is out of the question right now.
sharing them with you is the next best thing.


buy them here.
+ see her lovely blog here.

aren't they stunning?


.another dress that i am loving right now that i might be able to actually snag is this beauty.
on sale for $18.
can't really beat that.



ahhh spring.
thank you for allowing me to wear such pretty dresses.



i usually try to keep a lot of the mush from my marriage away from the blog.
mainly because i think that people get sick of hearing it.
but today is different.
today marks nine years that husband+i have been together.
we started officially dating nine years ago.
+ so today i am gushing about my husband.
+ how madly in love with him i am.



i didn't have much time to dig through our old photos to really do this anniversary justice.
but i thought that these would do.
i don't remember the exact years.
somewhere in between freshman + junior year of high school.
going to homecoming dances together.
i knew even then that i would marry this boy.

he is genuine. passionate. caring. + so full of love.
he is always by my side. he is always there for me.
he takes care of me in ways that i could never describe.

i am so lucky.

+ nine years ago today.
we hung out in our friend's basement.
+ watched the bone collector.
+ kissed each other good night.
the first of so many more kisses to come.


lalu. always.
