norman rockwell.

yesterday, i had a whole wonderful fall outfit planned and then i turned on the weather channel and it said it was 88 degrees outside.
what in the world!?! where are you fall?

so instead of my wonderful fall inspired outfit,
i opted to wear a skirt that i don't give a whole lot of wear too due to the 4th of july colors.
i enjoy the colors but i feel to festive in it sometimes.

i wasn't really sure where to take my pictures and really didn't want to do it in front of a tree again.
i remembered i had to return some books to the library and then i also remembered that there was a wonderful blue tile wall on the outside of the library..so bingo.
once we got there i noticed next to the library a beautiful mural.
low and behold it was a Norman Rockwell mural.
i was wearing the perfect outfit for Norman Rockwell and his All-American paintings.
so i guess, my outfit was meant to be.
