Into the ocean

I'm just a normal boy who sank when I fell overboard. My ship would leave the country, but I'd rather swim ashore. Without a life vest I'd be stuck again, wish I was much more masculine, maybe then I could learn to swim, like 'fourteen miles away.' Now floating up and down, I spin, colliding into sound, likes whales beneath me diving down. I'm sinking to the bottom of my 'everything that freaks me out.' The light house beam has just run out, I'm cold as cold as cold can be. I want to swim away but don't know how. Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean. -Into the Ocean, 'Blue October,.'

moody days go well with moody songs.

Christmas in a Jar

Inspiration from Deer Circus has led me to make a DIY snow globe.
You can read her post here.
It's the simplest cutest way to spruce up your home for Christmas.
Pun intended.

I got my tree, mini lights, snow, and fencing from Hobby Lobby.
The mason jar came from my momma's kitchen.

Happy Monday.

Little brothers & Sweet friends

I've been having trouble getting into the holiday spirit. 
My little brother is coming up on his 1 year mission mark, which also means he's been gone for 1 year.
I'm missing him a lot lately. 
He was always the one setting up decorations with me, lighting the tree. 
He encourages the baking of holiday cookies, mostly so he can eat them all.  
This year it's just me and the parents and I'm coming to find Christmas just isn't as fun with out  Tys. 

Luckily I have a sweet friend named Arielle.
And her thoughtful heart gave me Christmas presents last week. 
She got me cozy socks and a wooden carved deer pen.  (I'm obsessed with both.)
Talking Christmas with her makes me way too happy. 
Basically she's the loveliest human.

I hope you all are having a pretty December.

Modcloth's Uniquely You Challenge: Winterberry Tart Coat

Modcloth & Sincerely Peachy: Uniquely You Challenge

Modcloth & Sincerely Peachy: Uniquely You Challenge by sincerelypeachyblog featuring flat shoes

This week I'm participating in Modcloth's uniquely you challenge featuring the Winterberry Tart Coat. 

The first time I saw this coat I could have passed out.
Maroon is sort of my thing.
I can't get enough of it, and those who see my day to outfits would confirm that statement.

Honestly, I'm not one to shy away from wearing Christmas colors every day of December, so I did not hesitate for one second to pair this coat with some green tights. And this cream dress (aka my kyrptonite.) from H&M has my drooling a bit. Oh and the t-strap flats that have been on my to buy list for way too long. It's a problem. This outfit, for me at last, is the right amount of festive and dressy for the many Christmas parties that need attending.

If you want to fall in love and treat yo self (or a friend, or yourself) don't hestitate to visit Modcloth.

Xo, Rach
