No We Are Not Dead, No This Post Isn't About Downton Abbey.

I know that Marm and I are starting to have the bad habit of lagging on the Christmas Episode recap, by months and months and months. The good news is that last year we waited, like... an entire year, so if we do this one in 10 months, we are ahead of schedule. 
I promise we are working on it. Sort of. If by working on it you mean making a draft blog and then not touching or thinking about it for months at a time. 

Here is what we have been doing instead of marathon watching Downton Abbey.

What I Wore, Flowers in the Woods

Lately I've been reading a lot of blogs that feature not-your-average subject. Plus-sized women, older women, women with off the wall style, women who make their own clothes, women who only dress in vintage clothing, women who never post pictures of them selves and write things so funny you will get tears in your eyes. This makes me feel both discouraged and inspired, which is an odd combination. 
I feel discouraged because my life is noticably less organized/adorable/well-designed/well-dressed/funny than those women's lives appear to be. I feel discouraged because I have so few days when I'm wearing anything but yoga pants, so few days when I do anything worth blogging about, so few days when I feel even a little bit funny or smart, so few days when I can find the silver lining in the clouds that seem to loom over my head.

I feel inspired because when I first started reading blogs, there seemed to be nothing but thin rich white women blogging about outfits that cost more than most folks rent, and endless trips to places I couldn't ever dream of going, which made me feel like trying to blog would be a fool's errand. Now when I read blogs I see women (and men and non-binary folks) of every shape, color, style, and type of writing, that you can think of. All these people, pouring themselves out onto these pages. I bet a lot of them wake up in the morning and feel like being well dressed or funny or smart is an insurmountable task. 
And if blogging this long has taught me anything, its that anybody can do anything. 
Especially Lillian. 


Recently E and I went to his grandparent's chicken farm, which just might be the most beautiful place in the world. Its been pouring rain recently so everything is lush and green and smells like trees and fresh air. E treated himself to a new camera on black friday and is finally getting around to learning to use it. You can expect the quality of my outfit pictures to improve moving forward and I can officially  add "hunky photographer boyfriend" to my list of awesome things about my life.

What to Buy Yourself For Valentines Day

Tomorrow is Valentines day, but unlike gifts that are given by the object of your affection, gifts to yourself are forgiven for being late. If I were a nicer or more organized blogger I would have written this post 2 weeks ago, but I'm not and I didn't. 
This year, no matter if you are expecting 1 dozen long stemmed roses from your dashing lover, or if you plan to spend the evening eating chinese food and watching House of Cards on Netflix, I insist that you treat yourself to something.
After all your relationship with yourself if the one that matters the most, it will be the longest one you have, and it can either be the most loving and fulfilling, or it can be the source of your deepest unhappiness. For your consideration, I have assembled a list of things would make an excellent gift, from you, to you, with love.

Happy Birthday Baby L


 As we arrive full force into February, I have an outfit post from January! (Catching up from September! I guess I didn't wear anything cute for most of winter, haha)

At the beginning of the year we celebrated Baby L's first birthday! I am so head over heels for this baby, being able to watch her grow and learn, snuggling her while I feed her a bottle, I love this baby!

The party was held at a local gymnastics gym, so all Baby L and Little Z's friends (ranging in age from unborn-8 years) got to run and jump and bounce to their hearts content!
