{The Grands}

Did my very best to get some good outfit pics from my weekend visit with the family to my sweet Grandparents House in Florida.  They live in this amazing development on a gold course, where all the houses are stucco, and the entire place is just peaceful.  Our weekend was packed with a trip to Busch Gardens, great food, wine and spirits, and lots of laughter.  The only thing missing was my sweet baby sis, she is studying for her medical school step exams, and my Aunt & Uncle.  

I did some major color blocking on Sunday for Brunch.  My sweet grandmother saw my necklace, and snuck away to her jewel box saying she had just the bracelet for me.  She gave me this beautiful bangle, which I wore all weekend.  It was such a wonderful surprise, and it will be a nice reminder of her when I wear it.  I hope everyone had an amazing Memorial Day, and I am so thankful for all of those brave individuals {including my father and grandfather}, who have served out country....J

  1. Awww, what a sweet story! My grandmother let me and my two sisters go through her jewelry a couple years ago since she doesn't wear it very much anymore. I have the most amazing pieces from her and they remind me of her every time I wear them! Love your color blocked look with the shirt and skirt! :)
