Fashion Week

Hey. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Modest March Fashion Week. It was great to see everyone's modest outfits. I think it's so important to make sure we, as Christian you ladies/women, should make sure we are doing everything we possibly can to encourage other young ladies. We are living in a world that does everything it can to make sure we are turning away from God's Word and Truth. Personally, my thought is that people who may not have been raised to dress appropriately think that modesty means wearing turtleneck shirts and only floor length skirts, covering up every inch of our body. We should try and show others that you can still be fashionable and dress modestly (AND it doesn't cost a fortune). It's also important that we tell why we dress the way we do, because we feel that God's Word leads us to do so.

I would love to continue seeing other modest outfits. Maybe we could post an outfit once a week or something. I don't know, just a thought.

Have a blessed week

Stopping to Catch a Breath

Oh how it's so easy to get so caught up in the rush of this life. It seems as if someone always has to be somewhere every hour of the day. Just some of our weekly involvements include: church, homeschool band practice, cleaning, dance and 4-H for my sister(although I am too old for 4-H, I still like to attend
get-togethers : D), practicing our instruments, sewing for our sewing business, cleaning, laundry, and more laundry.  Oh my!! I can't imagine how busy it will be when someday I have my own family to run around to all the different activities. Although, I wouldn't want anything else in this world. However, it's good every now and then to be able to take some time to just stop and smell the flowers. We are a constantly running society and sometimes get so wrapped up in the responsibilities of every day life, that we take things for granted. Sometimes I might get tired of running the different errands I'm asked to, but I need to stop and thank the Lord that I have parents to run errands for, and that I have a car to run them in.
I have the beautiful outdoors to thank for the inspiration today. Now, I think I will take some time to go breath in the freshly blooming flowers.
Have a great week friends

I am absolutely loving the weather we are having right now: high 50's+windy+cloudy= the perfect weather. My sister and I went on a walk the other day and photograph the beautiful Bradford Pear Trees. Thank goodness we did when we did because all of the wind we've been having has blown them to piece since. Here is one of my favorites. : D 
Hope you have a great day!
