Pretty in Purple

Posted on: November 18, 2014

I just loved the shades of purples and pinks in this outfit….

This scarf was a gift from my son and among my favorites!

Even my reusable grocery bag works with today’s look….

I was headed out to get ingredients for the vegetable tray and pasta salad 

I will spend tomorrow putting together for the Homeschool  Bowling Holiday Feast ….

With Temp in the mid 70’s and very windy, what to wear????

I opted to start with a lavendar 3/4 sleeve Geoffrey Beene sweater and layer it to give a Fall look…

The purple poncho is Old Navy and thrifted , while the scarf was a gift from Burlington Coat Factory..

I struck just the note I was hoping for…

Colorful and fun with layers that worked for the warm day…

The winds kicked up on and off all day, not so much during my photo shoot, though…

Dear Readers, Today (Monday)  is my 3rd child’s 19th birthday… I can’t believe how wonderful it feels to celebrate this wonderful young man.  So much is talked about how hard it is to have children move on and out of the house… Nobody mentions the pride you feel when you turn over the reigns and watch them make great  choices for their lives.  I look forward to this new chapter of seeing his young man soar.  He really has everything he needs to make it and I keep pinching myself to be so blessed!   Times like this really make me miss my parents and sharing this journey with them…. 

Gratitude

I am grateful for a warm windy day… don’t know why but I love windy days they energize me!   

I am grateful that my youngest delights in watching the winds whipping the trees or at least humors me in joining in..

I am grateful that my children are all so close and keep in touch with each other.  

I am grateful for my fun walk in the winds to get groceries…

I am grateful that I was wrong about having another payment for my son’s tuition and that I was able to move funds into savings since Ireland depleted it considerably- no regrets there though!!!

Love the vibrant colors of this outfit! It conveys a cozy feeling of fall without being dark and heavy at all!

I hope your son enjoyed his birthday! And I hope someday to see my own sons soar, although some days right now the only soaring I’m seeing is them wrestling on the floor…

Laughing, as only a mother of sons who recognizes that wrestling scene all too well… Thanks for commenting!

What pretty colors! I love that even your grocery bag is color coordinated. 🙂
