This Is the Sport of Kings

My weekend began on a Friday morning with a drive to the university I used to attend; I saw some friends there, had lunch, did some thrifting and spent some time with friends back home for the weekend. We crammed every moment we had together with fun, conversation and laughter. The weather was simply lovely; we couldn't have asked for anything better. 
 Here's a peek through the lens of what we were up to...

They say that Polo is the sport of kings...

Here's to fun-filled, relaxing and beautiful weekends!
Hope you enjoyed yours also.

Thank you for all of the love on the hairstyle :) I would love to see photos if you tried it out too; I'm sure you looked fabulous!

Are you doing anything exciting this weekend, or are you making plans for the actual Valentine's day?
I'm going to a Valentine's Tea Party on Sunday which should be quite fun! 
On Valentine's Day, I shall be drowning my sorrows of singleness in my new fondue set...haha just kidding, but I really do have an awesome mini fondue kit that I'll be enjoying with some friends :) 
Come on over, I'll make you some! 
cute, right? 

I wrote this around Valentine's Day last year, and so I thought I'd share it with you all since it's that time again. 

My Forever Valentine
Valentine’s Day: that one lovely day full of sweet and beautiful things given to eachother to represent love; that one day I’m not going to be lonely on because I’ve got the greatest valentine in the whole world: GOD.
He gave me roses; vines and bushes full of blooming beauties in all different colors
He gave me art; a lovely sunrise and sunset that covers a canvas which we call sky.
He gave me sweet things: in the form of friends, laughter and amazing moments
He wrote me poetry: throughout the centuries, he’s been writing and speaking love through his word; he romanced me.
He gave me diamonds; strewn all across the sky for me to gaze at and a pearl that glows brightly.
He gave me a hug; his presence is closer than I know, and he’s wrapped me in his arms to stay there forever.
He gave me LOVE; in the form of a gift that I could never repay him for and for which I am eternally grateful; He gave me HIMSELF.
So, instead of worrying about going to dinner or a movie with a “valentine”, I’m enjoying the day with my forever Valentine who has blessed and given me more than I could ever fully thank or repay him for. What a day we shall have together!

1 John 4:16 NIV And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

 Here's a bit of love from me to you! Hope you have the most lovely weekend! :)

Blessings and Abundant Love,



That Day My Hair Looked Like Lady Gaga

So I may or may not have worn my hair in a "hairbow" a la Lady Gaga today... 
I had to do something to spice things up at the beginning of the week! 
(mine is slightly messy..being the end of the day and all)

This lovely tutorial makes it easy to figure out. Have fun! :)

Blessings and Hair bows,
(did I just combine those two?)


Love Never Fails

This is one of my favorite descriptions of love, and around this time when there is such emphasis on that, I enjoy reading over it again. 

1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13

Have a lovely day!

Blessings and much love,


7 Things I Love About You

2. I'm going to write a book.

3. I would really love to live overseas for a year.
