This weekend was all about reunions. I had the pleasure of watching my nephew's hockey game. He had a lot of pressure being the goalie as the overtime shoot-out took place. And while the team lost and didn't place first, I felt for him. Disappointment filled in his face. He must've felt, "if only I could've stopped that last puck". I wanted to run on the ice, give him a hug, and tell him it's okay. Later that day though, his smile was back on his face when him and my niece came over for a "play-date". My niece hasn't seen me since Christmas time, so she begged her dad if she could come over to "spend some time with me". Of course I couldn't say no! She's at the age where no matter what we did, she had her mind focusing on what we could do next. She amazed me though at her financial abilities during monopoly. She's growing up way to fast. Her handwriting is clear, her drawing of a butterfly is just adorable, and I can't believe how long her hair is getting. I sometimes feel guilty that she occupies all of my time and not my nephew. He always seems to want to play games with my other brother. Every once in a while though, he'll see what we're up to. Immediately my niece will push him away and make him "leave us alone." It makes me incredibly sad because it's as if he's not important. I hope he doesn't feel that way though. Needless to say, I had a blast with my niece, especially all the fun she was having with Snapchat. It was hard though saying goodbye. When my dad told she couldn't spend the night because Grandma wasn't feeling well, her eyes started to water from disappointment. I could tell that she didn't want me to notice because she wouldn't even give me a hug goodbye. It honestly broke my heart. I wanted her to know that, I'll be back and I won't ever forget about her.
My photographer boyfriend and I actually stumbled upon this location by accident. I had this one tunnel in mind, but the sun was casting weird haziness. Normally I'm a fan of hazy photos, but this one was just BAD! So we kept walking further down the path. I almost made us stop because I thought I found the perfect spot. Luckily I didn't because a little ways down, we found this look-out location by the water. It honestly was perfect. It reminded me of a beach, only with rocks for sand. I love the contradiction of the snow with the water. And the bridge in the background in way reminded me of Central Park. What's funny, is if you walk a little further down from where we shot, is where I shot photos of my boyfriend with his fancy watch. Little did I know that this spot existed. I honestly want to go back again and take some photos of us together.
Right now, just like everyone else in their mother, I'm obsession over rose/light pink. In my opinion, it makes a great neutral. When I put this rose jacket on, my boyfriend I look like I belong in Legally Blonde. I couldn't agree more. I feel incredibly girly in this coat.
During the fall, my go to jacket was a green utility one. Now for the spring, I think this jacket will be my new go-to. It's not the warmest. In fact, I would say it's more of an accessory than a jacket. It's still super cute though.
Can you tell by my crazy hair that it was winding that day?
