Roaring Meadows

Mike and I spent a good portion of Monday driving around rural middle Tennessee looking for the perfect barn for our October wedding. We drove down to a family friend's house and they were so welcoming and sweet. They drove us around their entire tiny little town and showed us a million and one barns. We found three or four that were potential hopefuls so we're crossing our fingers we can find out more soon. We shot these in the general area of where the barns are. Isn't it beautiful?! There is no shortage of beautiful scenery in Tennessee, that's for sure.

We've been working on our "Handmade for the Holidays" gifts so far and last night we stayed up a wee bit late to mod podge things and bake up yummies. We still have a huge list of things to accomplish but I'm looking forward to putting all of that on the back-burner for a little bit while I grab a yummy bite with Maya at Fiddlecakes today. Don't mind my silly faces and uncomfortable looks in the photos above. It was surprisingly chilly for how beautiful it was outside. (And see... I have teeth! I sometimes smile with them. But let's be honest, cheesin' for the camera makes me so uncomfortable! Fashion blogging is so weird.) Also- I didn't take a picture of my shoes, but I'm wearing these bad boys. Yep, another pair of black bow flats. I have half a dozen pairs and they'll always be my trusty fall backs! (And I've finally dyed those awful roots, too!)

  2. Wow, that lighting is gorgeous! It really highlights your hair + jacket. I love how you put a picture of you smiling with your teeth in there. It seems to be a topic brought up often by people, haha.

    But seriously, can you be any more adorable?! Have a great Wednesday! :)
