The Language Of Flowers

retrospec'd dress

It's feeling more and more like fall every day here, but I'm still stuck on springy florals... so you're going to have to look at them on my blog for a bit longer before I start styling autumnal pieces! I took these photos at The Ellwanger Estate's gardens months ago(?!) and I can't believe I'm just getting around to posting them. The gardens there are absolutely gorgeous and made the perfect backdrop for this Retrospec'd dress.

I really lucked out because these gardens wasn't technically open to the public when we went (they're open only during specific hours). But the owners were so kind and let me snap some photos anyway. Not only are the gardens beautiful, but the rooms in their B&B look incredible, too. I wish I had a reason to stay there! Someday, if I ever manage to develop a green thumb, I'd love to have a little secret garden like this. To find out more about Ellwanger Estate, give their Facebook page a little love!

Last week had some ups and downs. On the upside: I was cast in a really fun show (for fellow musical theatre nerds, it's called First Date  – it had a brief run on Broadway not too long ago), which goes up in December. I took a substantial break from doing theatre for a while to focus on my job and take some time for myself, but I'm finally ready to get back into the swing of things. However, it might be tough to find time for blogging. I'll really have to get creative with my time management!

For the downs: I got in a very very very minor little fender bender and it threw me for a loop. I'm totally fine and so is my car, but I was really shaken up and my entire work schedule was kind of derailed. In the grand scheme of things, it wasn't a big deal. But it was the first time I'd been in a situation like that and as a Highly Sensitive Person, I think my reaction to it was more pronounced than what other people might experience. Fortunately, I was able to take some time for myself and I'm feeling much better now.

That's all for now. I hope you have a great week!
