This is not a test
Cole, Wellie, Pip, Maisy and I are now at my parents' for the rest of the week. After packing up the car, driving to Royal Oak, and then unpacking the car, we decided to do a quick shoot at Maxwell park. Also, this coming Tuesday, Cole and I will be seeing The National in concert! Anyone else going to that concert at the Royal Oak Music Theatre?

It's been so long since I've had time to blog browse, I nearly forgot how amazing your posts are! The shoes are my favorite part, right after your cute expressions.

Christy  – (July 29, 2010 at 5:47 PM)  

I'm in love with your shoes. If I owned them I would want to pair them with all things blue so I'm loving your dress choice.

The first picture is super cute.

I love love love The National and was trying to make it back to Michigan for the concert, but work calls.

My boyfriend went to college with one of the guys in the band so we get to be VIPs every time they come to DC, which is amazing since they are such a great band and awesome guys too!

Have fun!

There's just something about blue along with stripes or polka-dots that is magically appealing. Lovely dress!

My boyfriend is jealous that you'll be watching The National live. It's his favorite band. (I'm jealous you watched She&him's MY favorite. XD)

ABI  – (July 31, 2010 at 11:37 AM)
