I've always loved the outdoors. It's been ingrained in me since childhood - the smell of sage, the brush of the wild grasses - the smell of dirt. Yeah, I get made fun of for that one. But anyone who was raised in a rural area understands what I mean.

Nature is my happy place.

It always has been. Being outside, moving and breathing in the air allows me to think. No matter how many stresses life brings, taking time in a quiet place outside always brings me peace. Maybe it's because nature is untouched - just as it was when it was created by God. There's no distraction. It's just me and Him - enjoying each other's company.

My mom made a joke today as she was photographing these images. She remarked that I always take my pictures in the dirt. Granted, that may be partially true.

I'm the girl that goes exploring, whether I'm in hiking gear, or a dress and a pair of heels. Unconventional? Maybe. But that's how I roll. I have yet to break and ankle, and I'm not about to let a pair of shoes get in the way of memory making.
I have been working on a minimalist wardrobe. Being away at school has taught me the value of styling a few basic pieces many ways. I picked up this top from Target during a $5 t-shirt sale.

This skirt from Romwe is another piece I've been loving for mixing and matching. The dark charcoal color serves as the perfect neutral to pair with my autumn toned wardrobe.

I totally understand what you mean about nature and creation. I feel the same way about the smell of dirt! We live in the country and I can't ever see myself living in the city. I need the wide open spaces, fresh air, quiet and peace. It is just so special. Thank you for sharing!
Your outfit is lovely! i love your booties!

Love this, Alex! How funny that I was just outside watching the sunset while sitting on the dirty ground, thinking about how nature just allows me to think clearly:) love it!

I love this outfit! I know how you feel about the outdoors. Nothing brings me more happiness than the smell of pine and rain-soaked leaves.

There are many Coach Outlet Online in the market.
The best place to secure that you are really getting an authentic Michael Kors Bags Outlet is from the authorized stores.
One of the primary concerns when buying a new Michael Kors Purse Outlet is that of authenticity.
If you are smart and want full value for your money, then there are some ways in which you can identify an original Coach Outlet Store Online.
Remember, the MK Outlet never comes off, and never tears out.
Probably the best way to find out if the Coach Bags Clearance is actually.
Time to go online and get yourself a Coach Bags Outlet if you haven't already.
Cheap Real Yeezys, a Nike new product launched recent years, is one of them.
Actually, there are many stores stocking Cheap Yeezys.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
