Willing Winter Away

I just want to say thank you for all the encouraging thoughts and wishes you sent my way Monday here and on Instagram.  The only way I can describe leaving your little one and going back to work is it's like leaving your heart somewhere and walking around without it.  It was hard, but I made it and I'm still here today and he is doing great.  

One of my friends said not to think of it as leaving him at daycare, but as allowing him the opportunity to spread his wings.  I like that.  I think I'll keep it.

I decided that today calls for bright and cheerful colors so I pulled together an outfit that would make anyone smile even if Old Man Winter is hating on NC and no one knows how to make it stop.

I'm going to will him away by wearing all the springy things in my closet and blinding him with color.

I took these pictures last Saturday when it actually felt like spring.  Today we're battling the last of the wintry weather mix *fingers crossed* for the season.  Has winter felt like forever to anyone else?



The sunshine and warmer temps have got me in a mood.  Not the same mood I was in all. winter. long.

It's like the little bit of vitamin D I got last weekend just soaked into my bones and made life better.  I'm looking forward to more long walks with the baby, flowers blooming alongside the road, sunshine into the late evening, the smell of charcoal grills firing up, bonfires, laughter from the kids on the playground, people running on the sidewalks, and cold drinks on the warm sand.

I know it's already officially here, but spring can't come soon enough.

  1. I love love this outfit. I wish we could go shopping together. I've had a few meltdowns already trying to find something to wear that makes me feel.. Human. Anyway, Im looking forward to all of those springy things too ;) except for warmer temps. I'm in Florida so I'll take all the "cold" I can get.

  2. I'm still lusting after that skirt. Wish the darn thing would fit me too! I love how you styled it though, especially with those super cute Toms. As for winter...yeah it can be done already! I'm ready for spring, flowers, grilling outside, back porch sitting, walks and dresses sans tights!

  3. You look great! I like your strategy for willing winter away! I'm glad everyone survived your first day back, it can be hard, but in a sense it's refreshing to feel like a real person again for a few hours. :)
