I know I told you all that I was working on making some changes on the blog (and I still am!), but the reason I have been slacking off on posting is because we are moving.

We purchased our current house around five years ago, right when we got married.  We've spent our entire married life here, so there are a lot of memories in this little house.  The reason we are moving is because Jimmy received a wonderful job offer, and it was just too good to pass up.
The catch is that the job is in Illinois, and we currently live in Ohio.
  (That's two states away for those not in the midwest.)
I've never lived anywhere but Ohio in my whole twenty-nine years.  In fact, I've never lived more than 25 minutes away from my parents, so this will be a big change for me.

Right now we (and that means, me) are trying to clean out our house and get ready for a garage/moving sale.  I am going to try to have it next weekend, since Jimmy will be home to help out.  The following week he leaves for Illinois, and I will be coordinating with movers and painters and having new carpeting put in so we can put the house on the market for sale.
I hope whoever ends up here makes as many great memories as we did.

I will be posting some videos and OOTDs soon!

OOTD - Army Chic

Not the best picture (was making a ridiculous face), I know, but I don't have a tripod for my new camera yet, so I have to take what I can get before Jimmy gets tired of being my photographer. 
I wore this outfit on a not-so-hot day when we were running around doing some errands and shopping.  It was super comfy, and it was something I just kind of threw on, but I really liked how it came together.  I might have worn some regular length jeans and cuffed them, instead of wearing the capri pants, but otherwise
I think it works pretty well!

Outfit Details:
(click link to see actual item)
Striped 3/4 sleeve top - Old Navy
Star Cuff Capris - Avenue
Army Jacket - Lane Bryant from a few years ago (similar)
Converse All-Stars - Purchased at a Converse store in Virginia (similar)
Yellow Bubble Necklace - I forget where this came from. . . (similar)
Charm Bracelet - I think this came from Avenue a few years ago.
Bag - Coach

These shoes are so comfy!  I haven't had a pair of All-Stars in years, and I forgot how awesome they are.  Anybody else feeling the Converse love?

New Facebook Page!

Hey, everybody!  I have been working on updating and tweaking the blog a little, so to go along with that, I have created a new Facebook page.  It is a business style page, but I thought it would be easier to find via search than the old page.  All you have to do it search "Loving the Reflection", and it should pop up for you to click on.  I plan on using the page to post little updates and things that aren't necessarily blog-worthy. 

I also have an Instagram account, if anyone would like to follow it.  You can either search "lovingthereflection" or click here.

I don't have a Twitter account.  I've tried a couple times, and just cannot really get into it.  Sorry.  

I would be thrilled for some new friends on FB and Instagram!  Hope to hear from you guys soon.  : )
