(Editor's note for the day when I get blog hits that aren't just my mom and sister: This week, my blogging partner Ryan, a.k.a. my husband, had a thoughtful post on the election of our new Holy Father. Show him some love. Our only other post was with Hallie Lord's new link up. I would recommend the video in that post if you love Catholic architecture. On that note, we'll be sharing some great pictures of the basilica in Covington, Kentucky, later in the week. You can also swing back in for some date-night fashion, which will feature a really unique vintage needlepoint handbag, for all you accessories luvahs.)
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted."
On Friday, I took off work early for a much-needed Mass. Don't you love when the readings and homily seem special-picked just for you? Here's a snippet: Have consolation in the new Holy Father. He has a simple way of identifying with the brokenhearted. We desperately need this consolation. Our cries do not fall on deaf ears, the broken Lamb of God.
Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday again. It's so fun when all the fashion bloggers show a Pinterest look and interpret it with their own pieces. I didn't exactly do that this week, but I did have modeling inspiration: This Felicitous Life Laura's husband Patrick. He can really work a lens, totally inspiring my photo shoot.
Strike. A. Pose.
Hmm. That didn't go so well. That Patrick — he makes it look so easy. Laura, he's a keeper.
In hindsight, I realized this outfits hearkens back to my little sister Kelsey, punk-rocker turned pregnant farmer's wife. Happy birthday, Kels!

Speaking of inspiration, my hair isn't cooperating like Annie Hathaway's. It's been more than a year since I cut off my locks, and I think my 'do finally remembered, "Oh, yeah — I'm curly!" Not sure what to do about that, with the Kentucky summer around the corner...
Maybe I'll try my hand at finger curls. Thoughts?
