When it comes to parents, I am among the luckiest because I have an incredible pair. Mom and Dad came to visit me this past weekend and helped me in so many ways. I recently purchased an IKEA Expedit shelving unit and because the boxes were so heavy (I'm not joking) I had to keep them at home for a few weeks until my Dad could make it out. Dad put it together and Mom and I organized and cleaned my craft space. I can't WAIT to show you the before and after. It's amazing. When I'm with my parents, I feel completely taken care of and free to be the kid I am inside. It's such a nice treat to be with them and I can't thank them enough for what they do for me.

Do you have parents or people in your life that help you become a better person? Who are they and how do you show your appreciation?

Oh--and as far as this outfit goes, I felt it was pretty plain, but the necklace helped pull it together for work. I wasn't sure if I should belt it or not. What do you think? It was light and comfortable--perfect for the changing weather!

Happy Monday :)
