Bow Cardigan

March 6, 2017

How cute is this bow cardigan?! I mean, come on. It’s the one I shared during the Shopbop sale last week and ordered myself. We took these pictures on Friday (fighting the wind the whole time), and I planned to wear this exact outfit on Saturday. After seeing the photos, I ended up wearing different jeans. I just decided I wanted a more boyfriend style to balance out the bows on top a little more. I really have learned a lot from seeing myself in clothes. I recommend taking even just a quick mirror selfie to help yourself decide on clothing.

I turned 31 on Saturday, and I couldn’t help but reflect on the past year. This time last year Russ and I were celebrating my 30th at a fancy dinner with friends while facing IVF after struggling with infertility for over two years. On Saturday we had Little Caesar’s pizza on our back deck at 5:30 while I held my 3 month old daughter. I could have wept with gratitude over the story the Lord has written. There were days that I asked him if he even saw me or cared about the desires of my heart. I had to surrender to him over and over again. It was both the ugliest and most beautiful thing, and I am the better for it. Ivy Jean, you are what makes this year special. Last year we didn’t know if we’d get to have children, and this year I am your mama.

    Ohh, happy belated birthday, sweetie. I can understand how grateful and happy you must feel. 🙂 I am happy to hear that you celebrated your birthday with Ivy Jean and your hubby and I am sure it was the best way to celebrate your birthday.

    That is such a cute find indeed. And happy belated birthday! It definitely sounds like it was perfectly spent. It’s funny when we go through trails people always say that when they pass you’ll soon forget the extent of those struggles. They don’t completely leave your memory but that pain sure does.
