Seriously?!

Tuesday, September 18, 2012 206 0

 

As I turn yet another year older today, I thought it was important to remind myself not to take life too seriously. Growing up, my Dad’s saying around our house was, “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” Β It was only a few years ago that I finally realized what that meant, and now I try to live my life by that rule. Β Yes, Dad. . .you were right (and NO gloating allowed tonight when you read this. Β It is my birthday after all).

    Love the outtake photos. Who makes the navy patterned dress 3rd photo from the bottom?

    • Jenny
      September 18, 2012

      Thanks Laura! The ombre printed dress was from H&M Trend a few months ago. Sadly, I don’t think it’s available anymore.

    I ADORE these hilarious photos! Blogger blooper reel indeed. I can’t even count how many times I’ve made a strange face or my hand is turned in a particularly strange way. I think it’s so refreshing for you to post this and I completely adhere to the idea that life is way too short to take seriously and to just have fun! And have a very happy birthday, I hope you have an utterly fantastic day! πŸ™‚

    With love from San Francisco, California,
