Brrrrrskies! It was bright out today, but the wind was awful chill. Suffice it to say that Craig had to hold my hands for a loooong time after I got home just to warm up my digits.
One thing I'm loving about taking daily pictures is exploring my neighborhood a bit more. My eyes are more opened now to little spots where I can set up my tripod and get some good shots. Practice will make perfect, I think. Today, I walked a few blocks to this great old Mormon church building here in Provo. So many of the church's buildings are new and identical to one another, so it was fun to poke around a bit on the grounds of this structure from 1952.
This LOFT skirt was a great find at my local Saver's about a year ago. It fits well and looks like it didn't get any use by its previous owner. My only trouble with it is it has this strange way of riding up in the front, sort of folding up between my legs as I walk. The solution, once again, was to use my awesome new slip. No mo' problems! I just get a little more length, a little more confidence (since I'm not worried about an unfortunate indecent scene), and a great little ruffly flounce. What could be better? Answer: nothing. Nothing could be better, in the whole wide world.
