So, I have to start by saying that this outfit was inspired by Elaine's outfit yesterday. Y'all, I have QUITE the backlog of outfit pictures, but I thought you deserved to see some scenery. These pictures were taken today by the side of the house where B and I will be living once we he builds a bed frame. Getting settled has been a slow process - I mean, we've been here a week and we're still living out of suitcases - but I'm starting to think that by the end of this week, we'll have things more settled.

I got this leopard cardi for Christmas from my mom. It's cashmere and leopard, which means I'm bound to love it. I also love the picture of it right next to these gorgeous flowers. I've decided that of all the flowers on the property, these might be the most dramatic. Does anyone know what they're called?

I have to admit that I can hardly believe it's January; I feel a little as though I've lost track of time. We've been crazy busy settling in and getting oriented with the work we'll be doing and the context in which we'll be working. Not only that, but we've met a lot of people and have had some great opportunities to network. This is my first time living in a rural area, and it's quite different from what I'm used to, but I'm super excited to finally put my degree in International Development to work.

Kiku, by the way, is loving the country life...except for the calf that walks around by the goat pen. She's not so much a fan of that calf.


  1. Love the pictures! The scenery is beautiful... you look spectacular. Praying for you guys. God is in control... He opens doors!!!!!

  8. that's a really beautiful place, and I'm so happy to hear from you :)

  9. Your hair looks fantastic! Shorter hair cuts make your curls extra fabulous. I'm thinking of getting a haircut too even though I like my hair long. It's getting to the point where it's weighed down and my curls aren't as great. Now I just have to find a salon that will cut my hair without using any products that I've been avoiding....

  10. What a beautiful sweater! Can't help you with the flower identification, but I look forward to seeing how your new adventure unfolds. New reader.

    I hope you get settled in and a bed soon!
