Black was the Night

Last week, P and I attended the annual fund-raising dinner for the Pregnancy Care Center. It was a beautiful evening, filled with great company, thought-provoking talks, and good food. The PCC is a non-profit organization that works to prevent abortions by providing emotional, financial, and medical assistance where needed. They touch so many lives, some even before they begin to bloom. In today's world of "Pro-Choice", the work that they do is truly one of a kind. 

On an aside, last year when we attended this dinner, our Katie girl was just a gleam in our eyes. Today she is a smiling five-month old who is our heartbeat. There is so much to be thankful to the LORD for. 

Have a wonderful week ahead, and thank you for reading!

Back to Basics

There is something so ineffably beautiful about the juxtaposition of black and white. It has such a clean, timeless look to it. It's the perfect canvas for designs that emphasize sleek silhouettes and clean lines. In fact, each line, angle, and the fit of the ensemble become all the more important when working with a black-white color palette, because this palette ever so gracefully gives the center stage to design aesthetics. 

What can I say, I love long as it's black and white. :)

Hope your weekend is shaping up well!

PS: Threw in some red for good measure, with it being Valentine's Day and all that.

Winter Wonderland

We got snowed in last weekend. Well, not quite in, but definitely enough for me to be reminded of "Five Go Adventuring Again" where the Famous Five get snowed in during their stay at Kirrin Cottage and get bored and explore the old house and discover a secret passageway connecting the cottage and a neighboring farmhouse, and true to their job description, saves their crazy, er, brilliant scientist Uncle Quentin's research results from being sold to a bunch of crooks by their tutor, by using the secret passageway to get to the farmhouse where the crooks were staying. Yeah, I was reminded of all that just by some harmless snow covering our backyard - my imagination is pretty wild like that. :) Our weekend wasn't half as adventurous, but we did manage to capture some of that beautiful snowfall in action. 'Twas a magical evening.  

For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, the Famous Five is an adventure series for children by the British author Enid Blyton. Loved her books as a child, and I can't wait to introduce her to my Katie girl!

Hope everyone's having a great week, and thank you for reading!

Neutrals as usual? Quite the oxymoron, if you ask me. Here's a secret, ladies. Neutrals such as black and navy become anything but when you incorporate interesting textures into the look. Here's one of my favorite looks of this year so far. I hope this post inspires you to play with your favorite neutrals. Have a great weekend!
