Party Attire

December 19, 2013



I gotta be honest guys – I kind of hate even talking about New Year’s Eve at this point in December… mostly because I am secretly so sad that Christmas isn’t a two or three-month long holiday (I vote that it should be!), and talking about what to wear to NYE parties makes me feel like it’s over before it’s even gotten here yet! Alas, I must admit that I’ve already been thinking about it. To me, party attire is all about mixing a little glitz with a little glam and then owning it like a rock star. I mean, at what other time in the year can you shamelessly get away with wearing more than the usual dose of sparkly, sequined garb? It’s part of what makes us all love NYE, right? Add a touch of fur in there and a strong red lip, and you’ve got a glamorous look that will take you from party to party, all night long. Old Navy has a slew of sequined tanks right now to add just the right touch of glitz to your NYE ensemb. Woot!

What do you plan on wearing for your NYE parties? Any ideas yet?

Three Years Ago Today…

December 18, 2013

I married the love of my life. For all my single friends out there, I want you to know that it’s worth it to wait for the guy who you can’t get enough of, who makes you want to be better and brings out the best in you, who you don’t have to convince yourself about. It’s worth it to wait for someone who is kind, and good, and honest. It’s worth it to pray for God’s help, and to ask Him to align your path with one of the people on this earth that you’d be happiest with – one of your best matches – and then to try to be the best darn self you can be so that you’ll attract the person you’re praying for. It’s worth it to have hope that you can find true love – the deep, meaningful, honest kind that makes your toes curl and makes you feel so wildly content and at peace and lucky that you sometimes almost feel guilty for being so stinking happy. Pray for and hope for and hold out for that guy, because I’m telling you – it is so, so worth it.

Happy Anniversary to the boy I am hopelessly smitten with. Turns out I fall more in love with you every single day. And thank you to the Man Upstairs for putting us together. I am so, so grateful.
