That's More Like It

Last Monday was quite the heat wave here in MKE.  We're talking mid 50s - almost laying out weather up in these northern parts.  I dared to bare some leg {yes, I used that line on Monday as well...} in my favorite dress from J.Crew's spring collection last year {last seen here}.  I seriously am a sucker for tribal print.  If it look indigenous, I'll take it.  Thankfully, I even had some {dead} grass behind me to give it more of a plains type of feel.  Throw in some denim and boots- just a regular 'ole southern-midwest girl.  Yee-ha.

For some reason the heat that was here has left and not returned.  Instead, it leaves 20 degrees actually feeling like 20 - cold.  That tease is the worst.  I want to be warm so bad I can almost feel it {or maybe that's just the tanning bed again?}.  This is the first winter in Wisconsin that we haven't taken a tropical trip to break up this craziness.  As it turns out - I can see that wasn't the best planning on Kell and my part.  Noted.  ALWAYS take spring trips when living in the tundra.
In other news:  
I read this verse yesterday and I can't/don't want to get it out of my head -
"Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.  Lead me in Your truth and teach me.  For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day." {Ps 25:4-5}
On You I wait...  I love that.  I want to just be waiting to see what He does every minute of everyday.  To not be so consumed with my life and myself that I miss all that He's doing.  I want to see it.


  1. i love your scripture....its so easy to get caught up in daily life that it can be difficult sometimes to stop and listen and be in a quiet place to hear and see what god is doing! i love this verse! but i also love your outfit (the black and white is so perfect!) i hope it gets warmer for you friend!
