. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Dear Lauren in Law,

July 17, 2012

Dear Lauren in Law,

 dress & necklace: old navy  shoes: target


I remember you wore your dress like this when I picked you up from the airport after your honeymoon.
I don't know why it took me this long to try it!

Thank you for doing so many fun things with me this last week. 

 Lake Geneva beach


Spending an afternoon on a boat


 A weekend in Wisconsin


Now I know that sometimes you think that I act too old and boring because I like to go to bed early and like to be home, but I'm pretty sure you have to give me some props for the last week.

I'm quite proud of myself for riding an ATV, attempting to knee board, tubing, riding a wave runner and jumping off a boat. 

Thank you for helping me embrace my young self.

And don't you want to win $20 in Starbucks gift cards, $15 to Target, a rosette necklace and lots of ad space?
Then make sure to enter my  July giveaway this week!
