Audrey Hepburn’s classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s Little Black Dress. Every girl needs a little black dress in her closet. A classy one! Not one that you could also wear to a night club on the beach. The little black dress needs to be attractive and conservative enough to be compared to Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn’s.
I read a quote once from a designer, it might have been Edith Head, who said “A dress should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, but lose enough to show that you’re a lady.” Not the exact wording but you get the idea.
I never thought I would enjoy soccer. I really didn’t. However, this year’s World Cup has proven otherwise but in ways that you wouldn’t expect.
I’ll keep this short but I want to highlight how awesome it is to see each country taking pride in their teams! From the moment the gents and their kid sidekicks step onto the field there’s an undeniable sense of electricity moving through the air. They line up, salute their flags, sing their anthems, and then greet the opposing team. In a time where half the world is in an uproar, it is nice to see some sportsmanship taking place.
National identity and pride is absolutely vital to the survival and will power of a country. While some countries that are playing in the World Cup display their identity and pride less than others, I certainly appreciate the ones that are very open about it.
I’m cheering on two teams- England and America. England for my grandma and America because its my home. It sends goose bumps down my arms to hear my country’s anthem and to see our player’s mumbling the words with their hand on their heart. I also marvel at the other anthems as well. Its a cultural experience for all of us. For the first time in awhile we can all enjoy a game and just observe. We aren’t singing Kumbaya, but we’ve found common ground. Can we relish in this moment? I am.
I had a few really amazing ladies nominate me and I’m flattered! Morgan from “Wandering Rush” and Lindsey from “Life Love Lindsey” have both nominated me recently! Check out their blogs! Lindsey blogs about glamour and fashion, Morgan blogs about crafts and other crazy things! Its really special to be nominated for these things because bloggers work so hard to bring fun posts to followers and we like to be recognized every once in awhile!
Here’s how it works: (as far as I know)
-Thank and link the amazing person who nominated you.
-List the rules and display the award.
-Share seven facts about yourself.
-Nominate fifteen (I am only nominating a few bloggers) other amazing blogs and remember to comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them (provide a link to your post).
-This rule is optional – you can proudly display the award logo anywhere on your blog (e.g. on your sidebar) and also follow the blogger that nominated you.

Trip to the Amish Farm
I love the beautiful country side of my hometown. We have a large Amish community in my town that stems from the even bigger one in Lancaster, PA. Many of them speak German or Dutch along with English. They’re very nice people but keep to themselves. Anyway, they bake the most amazing breads and pies! However, this particular day we went to buy flowers from them. They had a wonderful selection of colors and types including hydrangeas (my favorite). Enjoy the photos!
