Favorite Things 12

WELCOME to my new little blog! Most of you know I love to do "Favorite Things" posts often. These are pretty things I come across that catch my eye (I have also transferred my previous "favorite things" from the old blog -you're welcome!) You will soon come to know my obsession for everything white, stripes, polka dots, and ruffles.. Consider yourself warned!

This blog will be all things Amy - family, food, faith, fashion, fun, and
FABULOUS-NESS! (how cheesy was that!!!) Here's to new beginnings - CHEERS!

(Disclaimer - none of these images are my own)

Stripes

Especially love the green cabinets too


New toms


Pillows, lighting (over the dining room table- not the fan!), & photos

i love the banister, the books, and sienna millers bangin' hair. seriously confirm this with eli, but i have been using that EXACT photo of her for hair inspiration, but haven't dared... i may, i might try that style next spring. you can live through me if you don't end up doing it - if you do it, i'll live through you! i'm ready for a new fall doo tho, i'm thinking blonde and chunky bangs? i'll text you.
and lastly, i'm so sad, but very happy for you to be moving on to better things in life :) the better things are definitely out there for you!!

I love the favorite things posts. I can only imagine how amazing your home is with such an amazing sense of style. I read these posts and tell myself I need to be more creative and try these things out because I love them! I'm so sorry to hear about the current situation, for lack of a better word, but so happy for your positive outlook and your immense amount of strength and faith. As I read your post on your other blog I couldn't help but think about a friend of mine in St. George who is currently going through the same situation. Her last post was really uplifting and you may find it interesting and uplifting as well. Here's the link if you decide to take a look:
