Fancy Free

Oh hi.

Let's start by saying that I am laughing at myself right now because just two posts over I wrote something called "I will not let instagram eat my blog" and then I did. For like the whole month of June.

Where did June go ya'll?

I'll tell you where it went. To those two older kids of mine. I forgot that once those two are out of school, all regular life and responsibility and routine gets thrown out the window.  Instead its days of lazy mornings, slow coffee drinking while they tell me there dreams from the night before, a ton of coloring, days at the pool, afternoons in the backyard, popsicles, random mid-day baking, and a whole lot of attempts to keep the house picked up in the middle of it all.

I'm totally ok with it though. Where once I'd be grasping for some sort of control, I've found myself letting go more and more. It's funny, the more I do let go, the more free I feel.

At the risk of getting the Frozen sound track stuck in your head, those words really are so wise. Let it go. It's what God has been speaking to me for some time now and diving head first into the freedom of that has been so good to this weary soul of mine.

So I feel like this is a good time to finally share something else new I have started. That was a smooth transition huh? I realized I haven't yet shared it here and that not everyone has an instagram or follows me there. Shocking. Not really. But anyway, a few months ago, my sisters, mom and I started a clothing boutique called Fancy Free. What started as a conversation about how cool it would be to own an actual boutique, evolved into opening one online.

It's just fun clothes at afforable prices. I'd love for you to check out our website: here. You can read all about the name and where it came from, along with each of our roles and what we each do behind the scenes for Fancy Free. You can also follow along on instagram @fancyfreeshop.




This is my current favorite dress that we've got right now. It's super comfy with a bit of a boho vibe. Thats totally my style. There's other pieces too for basically every style I think. Thats the beauty of having 4 girls' opinions. You get a little bit of everything mixed into one. Also I went even shorter with my hair. Talk about letting go, now I can't stop. Haha!

I'll leave you with some peaks of our summer so far. Hope ya'll are doing well. Oh and hey, do you have an instagram? Leave me your handle in the comments so I can follow along and see what your up to this summer also.  I'm nosey like that ;)
