It's so easy to laugh at yourself


I've got a thing for driving out to Amish country and picking myself up goodies on the weekend. Since Jason and I visited this little pretzel stand, I have been craving one and I was so excited to grab one this weekend. I bought a few extra and put them in the freezer for when I have a bad day.

I was so excited to see these booties pop up on Gilt. I loved them last year, but they appeared in Nordstrom just in time for me to move away from Cincinnati. I really wasn't in any position to be buying shoes then, and I missed out on these. I'm lucky - I got them at a discount when I was more comfortable with buying them!

  17. Yes I do! I also have different lenses - these were taken with my 50mm lens. I always shoot on aperture priority for these at the lowest f stop and ISO possible. I then adjust in camera RAW and play around in Photoshop.

  18. Oh no - the whole entire town is filled with 'I <3 intercourse' and other things like that. You are definitely the majority girl!

  27. Oh my goodness I am in love with those shoes! They're gorgeous! Should have known Seychelles, they are always so comfortable. I went to Pennsylvania (I believe somewhere near Lancaster) a few times when I was a little girl, and remember this great farmer's market that made some of the best soft pretzels I've ever tasted. :) You look lovely.

  28. Seycheslles has the prettiest shoes ever! I was SO bummed when the only Macy's we went to when we were in the USA didn't sell them. Boooo! They did seem to have that Miz Mooz brand everywhere though, but those are a bit too retro for me :) xo Nikki

  36. Oh no! I didn't know you lived close to Baltimore! That's a shame! But we only stayed in Baltimore for one night because we were flying home from BWI.


    I love your pictures :) I've only tried pretzels ones (in DC), but I didn't really get it. But I think I need to give them a second chance, haha!


    Hope you've had a great summer!
