A Quick Trip Home

Last week I was enough to fly home and surprise my mama in Michigan for a belated birthday present. It was so wonderful to be in the place that shaped me in my favorite time of year: the beginning of fall.
I tried so desperately to fit it lunch dates and drink with old friends, that the 3 days went by in a absolute whirlwind. I had completely meant to take pictures of the beginnings of fall foliage as a snapshot of what I see as the most beautiful time of year but I was much too distracted by my friends and getting updates on their life.

I won't bore you with the updates on everything I did while I was home but I will bring in the nostalgic moments I had that made me think and feel much more than I have lately running though all the deadlines of day to day life.

Shawn's old dorm room.

Derrick and Matty walking through Campbell Hall
First we started off at an old favorite bar, had some nice micro brews and then decided to walk through our college dorm and reminisce about all the crazy shit we used to do. The halls smelled the same and I started to miss the care free life when sitting around in my sweatpants drinking beer with my best friends was a normal occurrence.

My friend Angela and I also went back to our old high school and soccer field where we spent most of our evenings during high school. Oh yea and I forgot to mention, I was doing all of this on my birthday. So if there is ever a time you would like to feel like you are growing older by the minute, go visit your old HS on your birthday.

I also got to share many shaded runs on a country dirt road with my favorite little girl, Lily.

AND the only fashion related thing I did while I was home was thrifting with my dad and little brother. My bro likes to thrift shop just as much as I do so it was necessary to go at least once while I was home and here is a pic of some of those finds.

8 Years After Cash

Today marks the anniversary of the death of one of my greatest idols, Johnny Cash. He died on September 12, 2003 at the age of 71.

I've always found Johnny to be one of the most interesting human beings I've learned of. I have spent many hours reading books about him and listening to his albums and I can honestly say if I could go back in a time and meet one celeb, he would be it.

He is an inspiration to me, not only as a musician but as a person.  Although he had his demons like anyone else, he had a extremely strong faith and accepted people of all walks of life. If you ever get a chance to read deeper into his life story: do it!

 I am turning 23 this week on the 14th and would like to celebrate with everyone! Feel free to take 23% off anything in the store for the rest of September with code BIRTHDAY

Nashville Greek Festival

Trying on fisherman hats

Woah, let me tell you this last week has been exhausting and I was so glad to get a couple hours to get out and about with Shawn and check out the Greek Festival. It is put on by a Greek Orthodox church in Brentwood, TN.  I have a love for Greek food so I was pumped to go out there and get some. I was boring though and just got a gyro. The pastry line was crazy long and I am way too impatient to wait. So instead we went to look at all the Greek dancers and vendors.

There were so many beautiful colors at this festival I was just loving every moment!
I wore a dress from the shop, 1970s polyester light pink floral dress. Shawn told me I looked like a grandmother but
Also if you noticed...I dyed my hair bright red! We will see how long this color lasts haha.

Stay tuned I'm hoping to get a giveaway going on here by the end of the week!
