Prettiest Tree on the Mountain

outfit details: sweater, handmade, c/o Frolic Vintage // pine cone necklace, c/o Pretties by Meg // boots, c/o ModCloth // skirt + hat, XXI // belt, thrifted

My heart is heavy in the best of ways. An even mix of excitement and fear for the future and what the next couple of months are going to look like. This weekend, Josh and I attended a marriage conference. It was so refreshing, challenging, and bonded us closer than ever. It caused us to reflect and refocus our passions and plans for the future. We were talking with some dear friends of ours last night about how taking that leap of faith, though the unknown can be quite intimidating, has a snowball effect of miracles and opportunities you would have never known to exist. Speaking of snowballs (see what I did there?) ;), the weather man brought a lot more ice our way instead of snow. I just want to go sledding. Is that too much to ask? Help a sister out.

P.S. My talented friend, Jessica, made this sweater for me, and it's my new favorite thing in my closet. Also, Jess has another shop for all you vintage lovers out there that you can find here.

  18. I'm in love with your first hat photo. For some reason I'm afraid of wearing hats, but perhaps, gradually, you will change my mind. I wish I could pull off the hat like you ;)
