My Sacrific for You!! hehe..


Raise your hand if you're in the northern hemisphere and are sick and tired of winter already?  I totally sacrificed my health to get these photos taken.  It was only 20 degree with a wind chill of 10 and I can't begin to tell you how long it took for my teeth to stop chattering.  But all this cold weather does make it possible for me to cook more and enjoy all kinds of soups.  Tonights soup is a vegan broccoli soup and it smells and tastes amazing!!



Ok, enough with the food talk.  And the whining about the cold weather should stop too:)  Let's talk about this outfit.  Since I'm trying to be more sustainable with my lifestyle, including my wardrobe, Mel and I decided it would be fun to swap some clothes.  She was super fast and sent me some things that I got on Saturday!  This skirt being one of them. I love the fit of the skirt and it was perfect for romping around to brunch and errands.  And to top it all off, I put on my favorite new pair of boots!! My friend Diane got them for me for Christmas and I am in love.  The length of the skirt lent itself well to a pair of calf length boots so I didn't end up short and stout like a tea pot.
