The Fish are Jumping and the Cotton is High...

Tonight I am sitting on my deck during my favorite time of day. It's dusk and the air is finally cooling down and the sun is setting. I'm listening to Ella and Louis and I am dreading going back inside... except the June bugs are starting their "kamikaze" dive bombs. Mildly disturbing...these June bugs are abnormally huge. Seriously.
oh, and I'm working on homework.ugh. time to go in...

Today was one of those days where you try on a million (or 5) different outfits and nothing looks right. And it's humid, so your hair is a mess and your face resembles an oil slick...anyone else know what I'm talking about?
Anyways, I ended up deciding on this outfit and am quite happy with it! Please excuse the fuzziness of the picture...sometimes it happens. :)

Love Jess

PS- I beginning to think no outfit is complete without a brown woven belt. I love this belt. Love it. :)

This is Living.

Hello Hello! Never fear my darlings! I am very much alive and kicking! And wearing clothes, just for the record. My summer has already been quite the whirlwind, but summer is really quite delightful. No complaints.
Like C already mentioned, today was Humid with a capital "H" you could cut the air with a knife.
However, unlike Ms. C, I adore the heat. In my opinion, winter should only exist for December ( I do love a white Christmas) and then it should be lovely and warm the rest of the year. :D oh, if only.

Because of the weather, I wanted to be casual and cool today. So this little number was perfect!

I've missed you! I promise to get my act together and take more pictures of myself (or enlist ma mere to assist me.)

Disgusting muggy-warm weather today...alas and alack, now I feel sticky and shiny all the time! If only those beautiful winter months would return! I definitely hold to the fact that you can always put more on, but you can only take so much off :)

This week I will be visiting a possible off-campus housing option with my roomies...I certainly hope it works out, since it would save a pile of money and trouble. Plus, it's nice just to be independent and in a home, isn't it? Anywho, keep you updated on that (perhaps even post some pics).

I think I'll take the rest of the afternoon to finish some summer class homework, read some "Momentary Marriage" by John Piper, and chat with our new Japanese foreign exchange student. Should be quite fun...I adore Sundays!
