Something New

There have been a few changes in my life since I last checked in. The happiest kind of changes really!

We added the sweetest kitty cat to our family. Her name is Fay Elaine.
She brings so much happiness to my day! We current have two pups and did have a cat, Apple, who we unfortunately had to find a new home for last year. After having Apple for 2 years, she was never able to get along with our dogs...truly needed a home where she'd be the only pet. It was a hard decision to make, and made us nervous about getting another cat knowing how finicky they can be. But Fay has been an absolute angel. The most affectionate kitty I've ever met!
Love her!
I also won my first ever blog giveaway over at Luxe Stitch. A very pretty necklace from Beautifully Elegant on etsy.
SO thrilling to get surprise packages in the mail!
Here's how I styled it yesterday:
Love the super long length!
Also so in love with this great vintage high-waisted skirt I picked up at Goodwill last week. I've really been focusing on shifting my wardrobe shopping habits towards second-hand/vintage. I've found a bunch of great clothes lately and I swear if I told someone I picked them up at Urban or Anthro, they wouldn't know the difference!
And finally, my favorite new accessory:

My guy proposed on May 2nd!!!! We've been together for 4 years now, so you could say it was about time :) I am so, so happy and also very proud of him for picking out the loveliest vintage-style ring. We're thinking about a September wedding! More details to come as we'll need to start seriously getting all of our ducks in a row if we want it to happen this year ;)
