Would you believe me if I said I have had this romper since High School?! I seriously can’t believe I have had this romper for years and years but I have a point to make with it. It is one of two of my oldest items in my closet. I remember splurging ($50 was splurging in HS and still can be for me) but boy am I so stinking glad I did. I say this because I tend to love shopping at places that has fairly price items for a great price but I also love paying a little more for some staples I know I will wear again and again and again. I also am huge on just throwing on a staple and head out the door. So you may have noticed I wear a lot of dresses/rompers because A) I love dresses B) they are the easiest to throw on and style in a hurry && God knows I am always in a hurry for some reason. I also am all about comfort and dresses/rompers make me feel so free. Stupid pants restrict me lol I am so weird – I already know.

& I want to apologize for those whom have clicked on these darling earrings in advance but they are not available. I hate when that happens and I am so sorry! I know some girls that have been made a trip to H&M and they are still there so I would recommend going and snagging these twelve buck earrings while you can!

On a personal note: today is the day of my fathers unexpected passing four years ago. I remember the day like it was yesterday. It plays a huge part of my testimony that soon I will share. I remember being at Pine Cove camp where Ted picked me up to come home to a nightmare… Dad was healthy as can be and was at my baby sisters high school graduation the night before. I am so thankful for the time the Lord gave me with him on earth because man he was such an awesome guy. I can’t wait to celebrate with him again in Heaven. For now, sister and I have a ritual of going to the beach since that is our favorite pass time with him. I really hope the rain doesn’t ruin our plans. If you ever need anyone to talk about by losing a loved one, know I am here! I am a firm believer that God allows certain situations to happen in our life to be shared with and prayed over with others. It’s also weird getting so personal so I apologize in advance for those who think so.
