As you already know, we’ve been on vacation in Tennessee. Our first stop was Memphis, Tennessee where we visited my dad’s brother and family. We had so much fun playing card games and going to the park and zoo with my Aunt, Uncle and baby cousin.  Then on Monday we travelled a few hours to Columbia to visit my mom’s sister and her family. With our family and theirs combined, there are sixteen people in one house, but I absolutely love it. My two older cousins are around my age, and we all fit in similar size clothing so it’s been a fun week trying things on.

Yesterday I had the  privilege to visit Nashville, Tennessee– Music City.  I went with my parents to the Frothy Monkey where we met up with a fellow photographer, Rachel Moore and afterward did a mini photo shoot with her.  After her session, my parents and I enjoyed walking around downtown Nashville. We stopped at several locations to get some pictures of my outfit and my vibrant red dress created a beautiful contrast against the cityscape.

The dress that I wore for this photo session came from my cousins’  aunt and so unfortunately I don’t know exactly where she got it from. But I love it! The fabric is flowy and I adore the color. The only thing that I don’t absolutely love is the length. The dress cuts off right at the knee and that’s not really my style. If the dress was a inch shorter or longer, it would suit me better but even so, I truly fell in love with this dress. And I was so happy to wear it without tights or a cardigan. The weather is so different from Michigan. Even with the powerful wind yesterday, the heat overcame and I never found myself cold.  And so I’ve been enjoying the sun and hope to keep everyone posted about my trip.

Au revoir Traverse City!  I’m saying goodbye to the chilly weather and lingering snow for a few weeks as I head down to Tennessee to visit some family.   A few days ago (before I got sick) I thought it would be fun to dress up and use some props to play the part of traveling.  Growing up, I don’t remember ever traveling during spring break so I was crazy excited when I learned that this year, we would be.  I have been so busy lately with packing and such so I apologize for the lack of posts.  And just recently I developed a bothersome cold and pounding headache  :(  I have improved quite a bit but today after seeing that I had finished all my packing I spent some of my leisure time putting a logo together.  It was a fun little project that took a bit of effort but was totally worth it (and as you can see, I’m using it for my website)!  Drawing my logo and taking these photos were a fun way to kick off my spring break.  I can never resist vintage books or cameras or trunks and all together, they created the perfect scene for travel.  I plan on taking tons of pictures down in Tennessee and I can’t wait to share them.

‘Tis the season for floral dresses and dreaming of spring. I found this pretty little dress one day whilst thrift shopping with my mom. Lately, I have come to realize that the best way to build up my wardrobe is collecting little bits at a time. If I am in town with a few dollars to spare, it’s easy to take a quick peek inside the nearest thrift store and see if they have anything cute. The other day, my mom and I took some time and shopped through this little store, trying things on and eventually coming up with a few things that we really loved. In the end, I left the store with a dress, some new shoes, and a cute new blouse. Besides cheap prices and good deals, another benefit of thrifting is that the clothes are unique and you have less of a chance of accidentally wearing the same thing as someone. That has happened to me on quite a few occasions.
