Colorful Joy - It's Spring

What makes life worth living? And does fashion have anything to do with this question?

Of course, most of us would say that the only thing, or rather being, that gives life meaning and worth is God.

And we say this all with good reason.

Because what does He give to us that makes life beautiful?



A smile.



And do you know what? The way we dress can reflect off of all God does for us. When I dress, I try to pick cheery, happy colors, designs, and styles that go with the idea of a joyful life - a life full of God's smiling goodness.

There are some parts of nature that are just too good to be real. How could you not smile seeing this?
Flowers can be in the strangest places sometimes...

Joyful in all of God's wondrous outdoors!

A Spring Day

The lovely Shelby was so kind to recently do a photo shoot with me.
And she got some very nice pictures if I do say so myself ;)

I don't like this picture so much..Shelby had to talk me into sitting on the edge of the bridge. I didn't want to because I was afraid I'd loose my balance and fall into the water. Lol.

I had to blow on that flower SO hard!

My Outfit:

Skirt: Goodwill

And a picture of Shelby when I did a photo shoot of her!

This picture has funny story.

 Shelby comes to me one day and says, "Please, Keturah, take some Anne Shirley pictures of me!"
So, we go out to the yard and start taking all sorts of pictures.
Then we go to the trees that are full of blossoms.
Now swarming all around and in these trees are wasps, so we are being careful not to get stung.
She crawls under the tree for this shot.
Meanwhile I walk into the branched for a better angle - and as I do so I feel this something poke my forehead really hard. I back up to see what it was.
A wasp! 
And it hasn't even moved. It sat there, too fat with blossom bliss, to even move and just let me sting myself!
At first I couldn't really feel the pain I was laughing too hard. But then once I did I realized that being stung on one's forehead does NOT feel good.
in fact my head swelled up a bit and I felt a little hot and red and like I had a pretty heavy head.
But it was still worth it - because look how lovely the photo turned out!

Well, that's all for today, folks. Enjoy your weekend  - and if you like share your thoughts on my outfit or share something funny that happened to you recently!
