That Summery Feeling

The temperatures in my part of Colorado have been soaring lately, and that means it's finally starting to feel more like summer and less like fall/spring. When I got here in late May I was wearing lots of layering and my (Arizona) winter coat. Nowadays our highs are rivaling those back home, and convincing me to finally put away (most) of my layered clothing. Really, though, I'll take it! July is almost upon us and I'm already dreaming of fall (just a few more months!).

Back in December my parents took a trip to Southern Mexico (Veracruz area) and brought me back this lovely, handmade blouse (along with two pounds of fresh coffee, seriously!). I've been saving it in my closet for a special, summery day. I especially love the embroidery detail, and the little tie in the back. I have a feeling it's going to be a piece that I treasure forever, and love that it has a sweet story behind it.

You may or may not know that I have a LOVE for Minnetonka Moccasins. I recently picked up these pretty moccs in a tiny mountain town and have been slowly breaking them in the past few weeks. I love the feather detailing, and how soft they are. Minnetonka really does make the best moccasins around!

Today I'm getting things ready for Scott's arrival TOMORROW! I can't believe he's almost here, and can't wait to go pick him up in the morning. Running into his arms is always the best feeling, and I can't wait to spend some quality, summery time with him. ECK! My heart is seriously so full right now!

Top: Brought back from Mexico by my parents
