Find Joy

Aww...you all are so nice.  Thanks for all the sweet, sympathetic words over yesterday's post.  I felt virtually hugged.  It will be a week or two before I feel like an independent person again.  I'm anxiously awaiting my new debit card and drivers license.  I replaced my iphone3 with an iphone4.  The camera on it is suprisingly good, so that's my primary picture-taker for the time being.


I wore this a couple weeks ago and Steve told me it was one of his favorite dresses on me.  Isn't that nice?  It's just a cheap, little frock I picked up on the Target clearance rack several years ago.  I like it because it's easy.  Easy to style, easy to iron, easy to wear.  Now, I also like it because I know Steve likes it.  Because I like Steve.


I purchased these great bracelets from Girly Muse who had brought them back from Market.  One says "find joy in your journey" and the other says "love your life, live your dreams".  I'm a sucker for anything with inspiring words in pretty fonts.

I love the red tights with the dress. I really like that the neckline of the dress is so high and it still looks fun and flirty. I have a hard time pulling that off!

I LOVE THAT DRESS! I had the same style in a different color (much more scary seventies style of a print) and my husband called it my farm dress... so I put it in the thrift pile. Sadness, because had I kept it, I'd know how to style it better because of YOU!

I love, love, LOVE this dress! And I am super-jealous of those bracelets... I, too, am a sucker for anything with inspirational words in pretty fonts :)

That dress is flattering. Lovin the little ruffles. Also, envious of your iPhone upgrade, circumstances aside.
