A Small Adventure

Sometimes, I just want a set of photos to speak for themselves. This was one of those times that I said, "Hey, I don't want to take photos in front of our back steps today, let's go on an adventure!" And we drove around and found a little green spot in the middle of the city and it was magical :)

This is the hat I fell in love with in This Post.  It's the closest thing I have to a flower crown and I just adore the colors in it. That plumb-y color has always been one of my favorites.

Since an adventure shouldn't just include things I like, but things the husband likes too-we got slushies! Guys, I don't think I've had one of these since I was like 12 years old. There's this gas station in town in the midst of a construction zone and so to bring people in they have 'penny an ounce' slushies! That means we paid a whopping 60 some cents for both of our frozen treats! Now that's a cheap date I can get behind.
We also went to Menards to get a few things on this day. Oh boy, I can't even tell you how many strange looks I received. Can you imagine me all gussied up in my flower hat and heels sauntering through the brooms and pipes just hanging out trying to act manly or something? Ya, it was quite the sight I'm sure. But do people seriously have to stare at you for such a long time? It's kind of obvious and I LIKE wearing flowers on top of my head OK!?
Alright, end of rant :)

Have a fabulous day all! Get yourself a slushie while it's still summer!

God Bless,

For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Haha when I wear my floral crowns out, people are like "What is that thing for?" and I'm like "Uh because I like it."

These photos are soooo gorgeous, you look fantastic on your little photo adventure. Love your floral hat and the flower printed dress too. I am now craving a slushie so bad!

Laura said...

You look amazing as usual! I'm loving that dress - definitely screams Katie!

And a penny an ounce slushies?! That's pretty awesome!

Hehehehe, I know what you mean by wanting to sometimes just take pictures and let 'em talk for themselves. Sometimes I'm in the mood to write 3+ pages of turning a casual event into a little story, and other times I'm like, "Shoot, what to write?" so I totally feel ya, girl. ;) No shame in your game!!

That being said, these pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I especially love the little parts where the light is streaming through the leaves and blotching the dark green grass with yellow spots. Your purple headdress/flower crown/hat thing (wow that was really awful? you know what I mean, hehee) is stunning, too, and works so well with that dress. You're just always such a beauty, Katie! Forever and for aaaalways! <3

Also, socks and heels? Awww yiss! (internet high five) :)
