Folks, I am not going to lie. This week was really tough for me! I came down with a Flu of sorts on Tuesday and had to leave work and come home to relax. The days after consisted of the following: a winter headband fashioned into an ice cube holder for my feverish head, delirious babbling for help in broken Bible verses, wanting nothing but oatmeal, potatoes, bananas and soup...and more soup, watching endless episodes of Kitchen Nightmares and singing the "Rainbow Connection" song from the Muppet Movie entirely out of tune, and needing Daniel to help me up every time I made it off the couch (and putting up with me the entire week), haha! It was quite an adventure. I am so so happy to be feeling better. I started moving around and getting out again yesterday, and today I felt great except for being really tired. Every day is a work in progress, but man, that was really hard, and I truly have such an appreciation for simple, mundane things being well again- sometimes you forget how lovely things are until there is a little bump in the road.
Let's talk about these sunglasses! Oh, I so love these! They were custom made for me by my friend Allie. She makes them for the shop I work at and she LOVES doing custom orders. She hand embellishes with flowers, gems, bows, and any other little things your heart desires and does them in just the right way to enhance the shape and style of the sunglasses. This pair is a 60s inspired clear and blue pair and I love how the flowers make them fun and quirky! You can contact her at Apatt20@gmail.com if you would like a pair for yourself ;)
I found this top and pair of shorts at Forever21 yesterday and though I have been trying to avoid shopping there, I just couldn't resist these two items, as I can see them quickly becoming great summer basics- and in two of my favorite colors!
Bow and Bracelet: Target, Sprinkles Ring: Flea market, Necklace: Gift, Sunglasses: AlliePatt, Top and Shorts: Forever 21
For Father's Day Daniel and I got together with his family in the early afternoon for Brunch and then headed over to Chesapeake Bay (My Aunt and Uncle's place) to see my family for Dinner. The weather was a little back and forth and finally a storm rolled through but afterwards the Bay was bright and calm and we got to watch the Sun go down-making the most beautiful colors in the sky.

I had a really great day today. It was fun just appreciating the little things again- like fruit salad, the sound of walking up the boardwalk, funny conversations with family, and a nice breeze off the water. Hope you are all having a relaxing night; and I apologize if I have not been commenting on your blogs- I am still working on getting up to speed with everything so I will be sure check in with you all soon. Have a great rest of your weekend! <3
