Begin Again // What I Wore

I have nothing to say tonight. 
I wore this on Sunday. 
I went to church and then to my boyfriend's grandma's house for lunch with him and his family. 
The leaves are changing color. 
Apples are getting ripe. 
I'm learning to open up. 
I live in a house with my two best friends. 
I don't have a cat. 
I'm ok with that. 
I love my job, and I even kind of love the long commute. 
I love my family and my church family. 
I love autumn. 
I love my life. 
The End.

I Feel Alive // What I Wore

So I've officially reached that point in life where every outfit includes at least one item from Francesca's - but most of the time it's more than that. I just love everything we carry so much! I mean, how perfect is this dress? The colors are bright enough for summer, and it's nice and loose so it won't cling too much; but the dark, jewel tones transition perfectly into autumn. I'm seriously in love with it. I originally wore this outfit for date night, but I loved it so much I wore it again for my family's mini-reunion yesterday - which was a blast. It was so much fun to see my favorite grand-aunt and uncle again.  I love them both like grandparents/second parents, and I haven't seen them since February. I've missed them - and their hugs. My Uncle Duane is over six feet tall and a big, burly guy, so he gives the best bear hugs. ^.^

We were supposed to cook out with them but since the weather decided to be wet and rainy all day we had to order in. I'm not complaining, though, because the rain brought the most amazing autumn weather with it. It's supposed to be in the sixties the rest of the week, so I'm wearing tights and and jackets all week. I love autumn/sweater/scarf/tights weather so much. ♥
