QOTD via JMG :)


A best friend of mine, JMG, knows how much I love quotes. Mainly sappy quotes, that is. He posted this on my facebook wall and I found it only fitting to share it will all of you. Thanks, JMG!
XOXO...

all that glitters IS gold

Metallics have truly found their way into the everyday fashion world. Wherever I go, there is silver and gold. The best part about these hues, in my mind, is that they pair well with nearly everything. I have a pair of Kate Spade gold flats that take the place of black in many instances. (Also, they are already on sale!) Lucky you :) The Kate Spade store recently came to St. Louis and I love it. Namely around the holidays. Everything is so happy and bubbly and vibrant. I have my eye on this purse. Once again, what WOULDN'T this look good with?!! So practical, yet so special and pretty. A lot of items are adorned with sequins lately, like this Ella Moss dress. Love it!! As a girl who used to only wear silver, I cannot get enough of gold jewelry. I have found myself googling gold chain bracelets and coin rings as of late, such as this VSA charm necklace along with basic gold studs... these darling dogeared hearts and Daisy Knights' posts. Whatever the season, metallics are always a must. XOXO...

Smiiiiiile {it's worth more than you may think}





QOTD....

Smile and the world smiles with you. Or; Smile, and the world smiles back.

Either way, I like it.

And if you really think about it, there is some truth there.

XOXO...

Happy, happy

SO, today was not one, not two, not three, but FOUR of my very dearest friends' birthdays.
 My cousin, Claire, turned 17 today. My future sister-in-law turned 23 as did my friend, Alie. Brittany also turned 24 today. Isn't that strange that all of the days in the year, 4 of the people whom I am closest share that one special day?

I think birthdays are incredibly special, personally.

I have some rules.

On your birthday, you should not have to pay for anything.
You should get to do whatever you want.

Afterall, it is the one and only day of the year that it is all about YOU (or in the case of November 16th, some dear friends', as well)

How cute are these mittens that I picked up for Claire?


Kate Spade always has just the right gift. I dare not share what I got for Caitlin, Britt and Alie, at the risk that they may see this post ;)
(You will open it next week Cait) 

Happy Tuesday to all,  and happy birthday to a few...XOXO...

We love you forever, SJC, jr.

My dad's brother, Stanley, passed away this Tuesday. It has been a rough week for the entire family, but we find comfort in knowing he is living in God's grace eternally. 


R.I.P. Uncle Stanley, you are greatly missed and loved. <3









i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

SO excited....

For...

Christmas!!!


Andy Warhol is one of my long-time favorites. I want to blow this up and frame it or something for the holidays. 

I feel bad for Thanksgiving now and again because it always gets overlooked. However, it simply is not as fun as Christmas. Presents, hellooooo!!? Haha....
I will try to keep being thankful each and every day for the abundance God has bestowed upon me. 

XOXO, T
