Ferris Wheels and Cotten Candy

This dress is one of my favorites (that I don't get to wear as often as I would like), as it has such great memories attached to it. I got it last year to wear for our engagement photos, and it's kind of crazy to think that we got those photos taken only last year. It almost feel like a lifetime ago. Things were so different at the beginning of last year, we hadn't even moved into the tiny cabin yet! The dress is a bit too fancy for just hanging around the mountain, especially because I love to wear it with heels (which are definitely not practical up here, haha), but it does work perfectly for a date day out in Winchester. 
This dress reminds me of a fair with its lovely colors and stripes, and it kind of makes me want to eat some cotton candy or funnel cake hehe. And speaking of fairs, it's looking like Will and I will be finally making it to the Delaware State Fair! When we lived out there we had always talked about going, but somehow always managed to be out of town and completely miss it. I'm pretty excited, I've only been to a state fair once back in Arizona when I was in high school, though that was during the day so I didn't get to enjoy all the lights. 
This button came with an American Girl Doll (Molly for all those interested hehe) that I got when I was little. I recently came across a couple of bags of them in my old room at my dad's house, and needless to say I was pretty excited. They are the prefect accent piece to any outfit, in my mind.
Just raising the roof or something, hehe.

Just before we did took these photos we came across this little guy who was doing his best freeze action hoping we wouldn't see him, haha. After we took a couple of pictures we left him be so he could unfreeze and get back to his little burrow. I always get a kick out of seeing all the little mountain creatures running around, my four year old self comes shinning through and all I want to do is make them my friends haha. 

Hope everyone is having a lovely day.
