I've been saying this for a while, but September is going to be an exciting month for me. Much to my surprise, however, the excitement started a little earlier than expected. Yesterday, my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their new baby daughter, Madeline Elisabeth, into the world, and I was fortunate enough to get to meet her soon after. I absolutely adore being an aunt (I have two nephews and now three nieces), so I'm overjoyed at her arrival. Both my sister-in-law and the baby are doing wonderfully, and I already can't wait until I get to visit them again this week. Forget everything I've said about feeling weird about moving back home. Obviously it's all totally worth it just for this. And other things, of course, but mostly this.
I got woken up pretty early by my parents (after working three 7 a.m. shifts in a row) and then spent almost all day at the hospital, so I wanted to change into something that I felt good in before I left the house later last night. This dress has been another all star of my summer wardrobe, and it has yet to fail in making me happy and being comfortable. This outfit is simple and very typical of me, but it's one of those ones that I just really enjoy. Feel-good outfits are always important to have, even if they do include cardigans that you talk yourself into wearing when it's 80 degrees. I'm pretty confident in saying that I don't think I've ever regretted wearing a cardigan, even in the middle of summer. Cardigans forever.
I've been super busy and will be getting even busier soon, but I hate how little time I've devoted to blogging lately. Don't get me wrong; I love everything that I've been doing and I love knowing that it's okay to not be overly attentive to my blog all the time, but I don't like that I haven't had as much time to do something that I love lately. I especially miss having time to comment on blogs, but I hope everyone knows that I've still been reading a bunch whenever I can. Just pretend that I'm commenting. I feel like you should all know my writing voice well enough at this point to just make up comments for me. You have my permission. I won't even call the plagiarism police on you.
