Orchid in the Snow

^^there isn’t any snow on the trees – they’re just white! 

^^oh how I love this girl šŸ™‚ 
^^so it didn’t work as well as we’d hoped šŸ˜‰


sweater: J. Crew // belt: J. Crew (love this glitter one) // necklaces ā„…  // denim: Lucky Brand // booties ā„…

These pictures snuck down in my drafts and I never shared them after my trip to Utah and Idaho last month. I was struck by the beauty of those white trees as I drove through Idaho for the first time. There may be very  little there (other than, you know, some of my favorite people), but it is its own kind of beautiful.

On another note, exciting things are happening (read this post). There is something about stagnation and uncertainty that makes spontaneity and progress feel so great. Warmer times and exciting things ahead, that’s for sure šŸ™‚

Happiest of Hump Days!
