Back from Florida!

I'm home safe!  We got back from Florida at 2:00 this morning, which of course was 5:00 Florida time, so we were very tired.  I'm back from a lovely trip down there to see friends and go to my cousin's wedding.

Looking forward to showing you pics of the clothes I've made in action--I wore my Anthro-ey fall brunch dress, my hot pink silk party dress, and even my little navy bias ruffle dress.  It was so nice to enjoy the warmth and sunshine for a few days, hanging out by the pool and the lazy river and the palm trees.  A little vacation in the middle of fall!

I will show pictures as soon as I get them off my mom's camera.  Wanted to keep you in the loop in the meantime!


  1. I hope you had fun(:

  2. I just got back from Florida too! We took a little 5 day vacation to Jacksonville and drove down to Anna Maria Island one day :)
