Lenten Letters

I live by the guideline that sharing what you are giving up for Lent overrides the sacrifice of whatever you're giving up. I think you've already gotten your reward when you start telling people about your sacrifice...

However, I'm pretty excited about one of these Lenten goals I have, so I will share! As you may know, I get to marry by best friend, the man God made for me, in May. That means I change my name in less than four months and I have to start hoping all of these kind free-address-label people will start sending me new return address stickers.

But what to do with all of these?

Years of collecting these stickers has left me with a hefty pile of stickers that will be out-of-date once summer rolls around. What a waste! Or is it?

Hear ye, friends o'mine. I am going to do my very best to use up as many of these stickers as possible and get in touch with old friends through the beautifully lost art of writing letters during Lent. It's time for me to strengthen my relationships prior to getting married. I'd say it's a good habit I should already have under my belt and I'll start with Lent.

If you want a postcard or letter from me, please comment below (making sure your email address is attached to it, but don't put it IN the comment) and I will do my best to reach you!

Reconnecting with friends. That's how I will #LiveLent.

What I Wore Sunday, 16

A few weeks ago I realized I had virtually nothing in my closet that fit me properly. Since I started running about a year and a half ago, I've lost several pounds (yay!). My first world problem is: now I need a new wardrobe.

So I bought a bunch of clothes and I look forward to showing them off!

Polka dotted wrap top: Goodwill, $3 (I love that place)
Red tank: H&M (meaning, probably $5)
Red ankle pants: Ann Taylor Loft, $20 -- Super duper big time sale. You should check it out.
Grey Flats: Target from several years ago, $5 (do you see a trend?)

It was snowing this morning, so yes, I wore a sweater with this. It looks much cuter this way :)
