I’m in love… with a small shiny magic box. B is in Richmond for a 3-month training, so I drove down to meet him this past weekend with my new Fujifilm X100T camera in tow. I was excited to explore the trendy little city with both of my loves (Bryan being #1, of course), and explore we did. One of my favorite spots we visited was Belle Isle and the American Civil War Center in historic Tredegar, where took these photos.
It was a magnificent un-seasonably warm day on Sunday, so I took full advantage of the weather (and the fact that it’s Valentine’s Day week) and pulled on my brightest pink skirt over my favorite heart spotted button down. I’m a sucker for themes, so give me a holiday and I’ll dress to the nines. I’m not usually a “pink girl,” but you better believe I’ll be wearing pink on Saturday, and I won’t be sorry about it.

Happy hump day! I hope everyone’s week after the holiday weekend isn’t feeling too long. Summer is just flying by for me, so I’m struggling to hang on to the days. Before we know it, it will be October and and we will be longing for summer, but maybe not the heat…
Speaking of heat, T is still in Israel exploring the homeland [and even riding camels on this very hump day!], leaving me reminiscing about our last motorcycle ride together in the city. Riding on the back of T’s red Ducati is one of my favorite things in the world. It’s an incredibly freeing experience, with the wind in your face and the open road in front of you [especially since in my case I have absolutely no control over what we do and where we go]. But I don’t mind being on the back. That feeling is rare these days, so I’ll take what I can get.

I have been obsessing over bright red and pink statement bags recently, and my prayers to the bag gods were answered this Christmas with this lovely red gem from Stella & Dot [which I even blogged about back in November!]. Pops of color make me happy, so needless to say this bag brings a smile to my face each time I load it with overnight supplies, work papers and folders, snacks and knick-knacks, and tote it around town. It makes even the dreariest of these post-holiday days merry and bright.

In addition to my inclination toward red and pink hues in apparel, I have also been loving Revlon’s “Fuchsia Fusion” lipstick. It’s a fun and carefree color, don’t you think?
