It's a hard parade, just be courageous

I just LOVE peonies. My mother does, too. She grows them in our backyard and this year I only got to see pictures of them. Luckily, I am only an hour and a half away from home and Peonies also grow here quite abundantly. I love their smell. Do they make Peony deodorant? I'd buy it! 
FOR YOU!
It makes me sad to realize that I keep getting further and further away from my family and parents- but at the same time.. I am getting to know myself better than I ever have. This is a very lovely struggle I've been dealing with for so long now. I've been bloging about this subject ever since my very first post. It's actually the reason I started blogging... to find myself. To jot down my feelings and inspirations so I don't forget or completely deny they ever existed. This blog has really helped me in many ways. I've also met so many kind people who exist on this earth and are so very talented and inspiring. I want to thank you all for what you do.
love, polly :)

Gorgeous! Everything works together so well...I love the pink, red and orange accents. Your hat and shoes are also AMAZING.

I had such a hard time leaving home when I went to college because I was so happy at my parents' house! I think I've gotten over it (having my own home helps!), but I still don't get to see my family as often as I'd like. Being a grown-up isn't always easy!

Oh my goodness--I adore peonies, too, especially the big pink powder puff ones. I'm afraid to try to grow them myself, but our next-door neighbor has two bushes in the front yard and I admire them every time I go out on the porch!

I love all your hats Polly, and this is so perfectly styled. Also, I didn't know that song, and I really like it. I never had much patience for BSS (I prefer the sum of their parts to the whole), but maybe I'll give them another listen.

Your scarf is the cutest with that dress! And I simply adore your bag!
