Happy Hump day friends!!! I cannot believe it is Wednesday already and we are half way through the week!! I feel like time is not waiting on anyone! Last week I went to Canada with Jesus Culture to lead worship at a conference.  We were greeted with lots of snow and stormy weather! The snow was beautiful but I quickly remembered why we don’t live in CT anymore!! My Jamaican blood was not made for that cold weather! When I got home on Sunday it had been pouring here in Northern California and I was thrilled! With our current drought we could use all the rain we can get!!! Ben’s mom is here from the UK and we are all eating up every single second with her! She is just a breath of fresh air everytime she visits!! The girls are learning how to knit and make oragamy, bake, you name it!! On Friday we are headed up to a few apple orchards and pumpkin patches together followed by a weekend in Lake Tahoe!! We cannot wait!! Be sure to follow along on Snap Chat and Instastories!!

This dress is from one of my new favorite online boutiques Bohoblu  It is the perfect shift dress that moves with you yet stands out with style.  It is the kind of dress that makes you want to twirl along throughout the day!  I love this time of year when I can bust out my OTK boots and my Fall hats! This dress paired perfectly with boots and a hat!  What are you all up to the rest of this week!!? Hope your week goes well and you have an awesome weekend!!


Much love,

Ruthie xo

    Love the dress! Floral is hands down my favorite pattern of all time, and this color combo and print look so beautiful. Love that you paired it with OTK boots too.
