Linking with Extra Petite

Jean from Extra Petite is a bubbly, fun, yet still practical blogger. She has a corporate day job, so she is great at showing her readers how to cultivate a polished but still fun wardrobe. I love her taste and its a plus that she has an eye for finding wears that suite those with smaller frames!

In January, Jean posted a question asking her readers about their wedding dress. I had a great experience in finding the perfect dress for my wedding day in Hawaii so I shared a little bit about my hunt and tailoring. I sort of forgot about it as things got busy at work. Today, I woke up to a fabulous surprise! Continue Reading →

Holy Week

He gave the power to become children of God to all who believe his name (John 1:12)

This Saturday, Kendra will be baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church. This seven month journey has been remarkable to watch her studying the scripture each week as He prepares her heart. Until now, I’ve had the privilege of walking in faith with Kendra since very early on in our friendship. I am so proud of her for making such a careful and personal decision. Close family and friends will celebrate Kendra’s final hours as a catechumen just before she proclaims her faith and becomes a child of God during the Easter Vigil.

One of my favorite songs, “Mighty to Save” by Reuben Morgan and Ben Fielding really resonates as I listen to the lyrics. As you reflect on the paschal mystery this week, I encourage you to be still and intentional to give Him the glory this Holy time.

XO, A

 

 

Just a little Lilly

Ever heard the phrase, “a little goes a long way?” It seems like something my Mom or Grandma would tell me in the kitchen growing up. I think the same is true for the new Lilly Pulitzer x Target Collection premiering April 19th. I’m not hating on Lilly! I love her – so much I wore her for 2 of my wedding events! But, as a more slightly more mature, married woman, I have to remember I can’t dress like my 20 year-old self anymore, clad in Lilly from head to toe.
