Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Saturday Evening in Sunday Finest

The shadows on my legs are from a cast iron fence out of the photos...
Lacey powder pink top, peplum skirt, vintage hat, cameo necklace...these are a few of my favorite things!

My nails have lil shamrocks on them.  :)
 I wore this little ensemble to church this past Saturday to celebrate coming back to choir after a bad cold kept me away for two weeks. 

My husband took these photos of me.

However--not to sound overdramatic--these photos of me smiling in this sophisticated outfit are only tearing my heart apart, now.  I didn't know when these were taken what would happen a few hours later.
 I don't need to burden you with my personal problems; suffice to say that, because of a very traumatic event, I have been in the process of divorcing my husband.  This particular event is not the only reason for the divorce, merely the tipping point.  (Trust me, any fellow Christians reading my blog, that my reasoning for divorce is biblically acceptable.)

To throw a little dark humor out there: it's really too bad I'll never be able to re-wear this pretty outfit because of the bad memories associated with it.  :)
Or maybe some day I will be able to.  We'll see.

I've really never given you guys quality photos of this phenomenal coat! such a travesty! 
Isn't it glorious?

Everything is thrifted except the Shoes (Payless) and necklace (gift), and even those things are from high school.

Anyway, I want to apologize; after this post, my blogging is probably going to be quite sporadic for a few months. 

+sigh+ I've never had a good St. Patty's Day...Oh, well...There's always next year, right?
