quick trip home


I got a chance to run home for a quick trip last weekend & I jumped at it! Unfortunately my mom was away volunteering at a retreat in Oregon, but I had some quality time with my siblings, dad, and puppy, and got to see a few friends from high school as well as my favorite kids in the world, who I used to babysit and who are now growing up too fast! Every time I go home, my mom's garden looks more beautiful and vibrant. How beautiful are the sunflowers and nasturtiums? I love the Autumn colors of those against the bright green leaves. My dad also made his famous chili, which we always have with cinnamon rolls--it's tradition. I got to eat at my favorite local brewery AND did not a speck of homework, so I would say it was a lovely weekend!

Huckleberry Finn wouldn't leave my side while I was trying to take a shoes shot, but I wasn't complaining. Nothing like some real puppy love to fill up a weekend, am I right?

blouse: Old Navy, skirt: Forever 21 (as seen here), boots: borrowed from my mom

Hey, I love your shirt and black-white skirt. (Is it black-white? I had trouble telling black from dark blue recently....) Anyway, love your blog!
