Lovely in Lulu's: London Blues.

Maxi Dress: Lulu's c/o, Jean Jacket: Old Navy, Shoes: Birkenstock, Bag: Kate Spade (similar), Sunglasses: Target

I'm so excited to start posting some photos from my trip to London.  Today I'm sharing one of the outfits I wore on my trip, featuring this beautiful blue and white maxi dress from my favorite online boutique...Lulus.com!  It was probably my favorite item of clothing during the trip, because it was so comfortable and cute!  I was even able to get away with wearing my Birkenstock sandals with this dress, so that's definitely a plus...there is nothing worse than trying to explore a fun new place in uncomfortable shoes. 

These photos were taken at two landmarks we visited: Windsor Castle and Hampton Court.  I'll go into more detail about those places later, but let's just say they were both gorgeous locations!   


More London pictures are coming soon!

A New Adventure.

The past 10 years have been pretty good to me.  I moved from Portland, Oregon to Logan, Utah.  I attended school at Utah State University, where I met Emery.  We got married in the Logan LDS temple.  We moved to Lehi, Utah and bought our first house.  We had two beautiful children.  I began my career as a flight attendant.  I started this blog.  I made some great friends.

At first, I hated living in Utah.  The winters were cold, people seemed a little too judgmental, and there just wasn't the diversity I had known back in Oregon.  But over time I grew to love it.  It's safe, which is a big deal when you have kids.  Most people are really friendly.  It's a fairly inexpensive place to live.  And the best part, in my opinion...the mountains.  Oh, how I'll miss hiking in the gorgeous Utah mountains.

But, it's time for a new adventure.  It's time to start over somewhere new.  

At the beginning of August my family will be packing up our lives, jumping in the car and driving 1250 miles to our new home: Minneapolis, Minnesota.  That's right, I'm headed to the land of 10,000 lakes.  Home to the Mall of America, numerous professional sports teams, funny accents, and below freezing temperatures.

If anyone has any experience living in the Twin Cities area I would love to hear your thoughts.  I've been trying to research the best places to live and it's a little overwhelming.  I'd love to live in an old historic home in Southwest Minneapolis, but unfortunately I think that's a bit out of our price range.  Emery will be working in Woodbury, which looks like it could be a nice place to live, with great schools for the kids.  It's all so overwhelming, but I'm sure it will all work out.  It's certainly going to be an adjustment, but I'm excited for the change!
