Simply Me + Link Up & Firmoo Giveaway

First things first is to announce the Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway winner…congrats to Wendy Stacey. Enjoy it and hope you find something perfectly lovely for you! Thank you to all who entered – there were 3,000 entries. Wow!!

Happy Monday, Lovelies! I truly hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday with those who are precious to you. As today marks the end of November the countdown begins for Christmas and the end of the year. The next weeks will most likely be filled with family, friends, food and for me a reflection upon my faith and one whose birth is celebrated at Christmas.

For me, a time of reflection began back in August. A stirring of sorts that something was not quite jelling in my life. I have struggled to get at the heart of all of it. But through introspection and prayer I have come to place where the pieces have been coming together. I’m thankful this has been happening over the last several months because I see clearer into the coming new year and am able to think, plan and set goals already. There will be more coming about this in the coming weeks. Hope you’ll stay tuned.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a look from a couple of weeks ago. It was actually the day we had our first frost of the season. It was also a day when I began to be settled and was feeling me {Simply Me}. That particular morning I was feeling free and giddy. These pictures kind of embody me…the fun, silly girl who was trying to make my hubby laugh with me.

To be honest when I’m feeling free I can be silly and laugh and embrace life and myself. That’s what these pictures represent to me – freedom. Freedom in my heart and which reflects in my simple, casual yet put together look. I just have to say it’s Simply Me {or Just Me or It’s Really Me or This is Me or fill in the ______ Me}. Have you ever felt this way or not felt yourself and then BAM! Hey, I’m back to being me! Oh, so much to tell and I’m looking forward to sharing this story and journey with you, friends. But….not all of it today!

And since it’s Monday, it’s time for our link-up. Thanks to everyone who joined in last week. Whitney, Casey and I enjoyed reading your posts and searching for our favorite looks. Can’t wait to see what you lovely ladies link up this week.
