The construction behind me is being turned into an urban, walkable community, slated for completion next year. I can't wait to take pictures with colorful (and modern) buildings as the backdrop. It'll be a change from the typical colonial style that's so prevalent here. Happy Friday, everyone!

  9. @Jarucha - Living in suburbia, everything is pretty much cookie cutter and boring, so I am quite excited about this new construction, even though it would be out of my budget to even consider living there :)

    I used to love Project Runway, but haven't been watching since they switched networks... and b/c I've got too many other shows on my plate.

  10. Only you could pull off flats with this feminine and adorable outfit! You look great!

  11. I love the skirt on that dress...such a gorgeous silhouette!

    Those walkable communities are so much fun. My brother-in-law lives in something similar, and it's always such a fun place to hang around :)
