Outfit: Bricks and Branches

Do you ever drive around town and see pretty places you've never been and thought "I should stop there some day". I always do but I never do stop! We had a break in the cold this week and while I was out going to the library and post office, I decided to finally stop at a beautiful historic college campus near by. This is Lindenwood University, which was founded in 1827 by early American pioneer, Mary Easton Sibley. The campus is packed with beautiful old buildings and trees that are so big and old that they could have been here when Mary was.

On the weekend, the parking lot and buildings were mostly empty and made for a perfect place to stop for outfit pictures. They have picnic tables and swing benches all over the wooded grounds, which my son, Rhys was pretty excited about. Today is his birthday, he turns 7! We're taking him bowling with his cousins tonight and out for a special outing with just the four of us this weekend.

There's a very pretty greenhouse here, which looks like it hasn't been in use very much over the winter but I hope they sweep it out and start using it soon. It's too beautiful to leave abandoned.
