Casual Friday

I love a good striped tee.  Particularly when they are super soft and a little longer in the back than in the front.  And my white jeans?  Still going strong this fall season.  In fact, I love this look for Fall so much, that this type of uniform will definitely be on repeat.  I will just have to change out my heels for booties when the temps start to drop!

On a serious note, I also wanted to just take a minute and acknowledge today, September 11th.  I still remember so vividly where I was and exactly what I was doing on this day 14 years ago.  I remember watching towers fall while my roommates and I cried and clung to each other in our tiny little dorm room.  I remember frantically trying to call friends who lived in in NYC to make sure they were ok.  I remember how drastically things changed in those moments and how in the blink of an eye, things would never be the same.  But most importantly, I remember those who lost their lives, the heroes, the first responders, the children who have grown up without with fathers and mothers.  Every soul lost that day was so precious and taken from us much too soon.  So even though life marches on, today will be a day full of reflection for me, as I know it will be for many others across this great country and around the world.

Hold tight to your loved ones, and never, ever forget.

Love you guys.

Derby Style

Even though I was born and raised out west, I did live in the south for a few years when I pursued a country music career and attended college at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.  And let me just say, my years in the Music City were some of the best of my life. There is just something about the South that is so near and dear to me.  What can I say? I’m a country girl at heart. And because I especially love all of the incredible traditions that come from the South, J and I decided to throw a Derby party this year.  I have always wanted to host one, but haven’t had the chance since I moved to Utah.  But this year, it was the perfect excuse to get extra dressed up, enjoy the gorgeous weather, drink cocktails in the afternoon, and celebrate my birthday (a few days early) with all of our favorite people!  It was a great time had by all, and served as the perfect reminder to wear big, floppy hats more often!
