The Industrial Red Country Barn

Breaking my break from blogging with this post. These pictures are from my cousin's birthday BBQ in August, one of the last totally happy family moments we had before my grandfather died. My cousin's dad built this pseudo barn in the backyard years ago and we thought it made such a cute backdrop for our outfits.


Meet Allie! She's my beautiful 16-year-old cousin with gorgeous, gorgeous hair. She's a proud Earnestyle photographer, dedicated IB student, fluent German speaker, and future linguist/German professor.
That cute bow from American Apparel was my b-day gift to her. :)
I so thought of Kelsey Bang and her hubby when we took these pictures. Haha.

Nestor wears his Home T at least once a week. It's probably the most successful gift I've ever given him!
My boyfriend's eyes disappear when he smiles. :)

Just look at her gorgeous, gorgeous hair one more time!
So I'm back (I think). I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to read my last post. It's been incredibly difficult to find a new normal, all while trying to juggle 3 jobs and one night class, 6 days a week! So thank you, thank you, thank you for having read my last post and leaving me your sweet and thoughtful comments. Your support really warmed my heart in such a great time of need. :)
