My Neck is Warm & My Heart is Full.

Not sure if you guys are enjoying these outfit posts or not, but I've got another one for you today, so too bad! :) I'm thinking of continuing them in Hawaii to make myself wear something more than just a tank and shorts everyday. What do you think of that? 

 Earrings:: {Macy's}
Scarf:: {Target}
Tee:: {Papaya}
Jeans:: {F21}
Boots:: {borrowed Uggs}

And because my heart is in Maryland with my family as I fly home to Hawaii today, I've got to share some more pictures from the last week. I spent almost every night at my grandparents' as all 26 grandchildren flew in from all over the country to spend time with my Papap. It was a sweet time together and it broke my heart to say goodbye.

And just to give you an idea of the crowd this week. My little sister in the blue shirt has the coveted seat next to my Papap, covering his hands with her warm hands as the flurry of activity and laughter swirls around them. 

I got to see my little brother, Adam, this weekend...

... and it's not a visit with my brothers unless there's some wrestling move pulled at least once. 

We made a gigantic apple crisp on Saturday and it was gobbled up within minutes. Mmmm... so good. 

I hope your weekend filled your heart with goodness like mine did. I have to say that while I'm excited to get home to my life in Hawaii and get back to painting in my studio, it's going to be very hard to be so alone in my house and away from family after this beautiful week.

And dear friends, thank you for all the prayers for my family and my Papap. He is still sharp, witty and holding onto this world with that stubborn grip of his. It was the best gift I could ask for to have that time with him this week.

Have a sweet Monday!

I love how close you are to your family, how much you all share together, and all the special moments you will treasure forever. I've said it before, and I'll say it my dear, are one special woman!! Everyone is for the better just by knowing you. I believe you are wise beyond your years and have a very special and beautiful soul to express your feelings the way you do!
