WHAT I WORE | Maternity Style – 14 Weeks


Welcome to my backyard! It’s been a real help to a (as of late) lazy fashion blogger, to have private property to tromp around and preen unabashedly for a camera, and even a mother-in-law who comes over to mow the grass for us! (Did I tell you? Phil had knee surgery, and I don’t know how to drive a stick- so we’re quite helpless in lawn maintence this Spring.)

So, as you can see, we have trees, grass, and maybe you can see that brick wall in the distance? I like to think of it as a secret garden, hidden by trees and overgrown shrubs. But in actuality, as you might expect when you hear a gentle whirring sound coming from the distance, there’s a highway back there, and even a train track, which carries scenic trains from Canton to Cuyahoga Falls! We don’t mind the noise much, as the wall keeps out the loud traffic sounds, and we like not sharing our backyard with anyone and also enjoy the complete privacy that comes with having a walled highway beyond one’s backyard.

So, there it is! A glimpse at our backyard. Don’t worry, you’ll see more of it soon. ;)

  7. You’re lovely! Such a cute outfit too! In my neighboorhood the houses are soooo close together and where I have to take my outfit post pictures is in plain view of the neighbors and anyone who drives down my street. I blame them for the faces I make in my photos. Theres something embarassing about photographing oneself. Haha
