_1410667 The past few days have been crazy. Saturday a friend from grad school got married, and Sunday we moved basically everything in our apartment (except the kitchen and my closet..not sure which is going to be worse..)

The wedding was wonderful, it was at this gorgeous church in Clintonville where the bride was actually baptized as baby – how cool is that? The reception was right down the street from our old apartment, which was really nice because we were able to walk home (for an open bar wedding, being able to walk home was beyond amazing).

A nonprofit group is taking a novel approach to helping the homeless in San Francisco with a new bus that allows them to take a shower. The former public transit bus has been outfitted with two full private bathrooms and offers hot showers, clean toilets, shampoo, soap and towels free of charge. The founder of the nonprofit Lava Mae mobile shower bus said she wanted to return a sense of dignity to those living on the streets.Check  out the full story here!

_1380349Can you believe this? I finally get the first vintage dress on here and the photos look like this (overexposed :/). This was the first true vintage dress I ever bought for myself, I purchased it about 4 years ago from this antique store I love in Clintonville. The tag said it was likely from the 1970′s, an era that has definitely become one of my favorites as of late..

_1380427 Delightfully Dainty is the Thrift Style Thursday theme this week. I’m not sure this dress totally fits that category, but it is second-hand, so I figured today would be an OK day to share it on here.

Be sure to check out what my fellow thrift style Thursday-ers came up with this week:

Michael Sulsona of Staten Island, New York, has not led an easy life. The former Marine lost both of his legs in the Vietnam War when he was 20 years old,according to WABC. Sulsona has since used a wheelchair. Last Monday, his wheelchair broke in a Lowe’s store in Staten Island, and he found himself in a desperate situation. In a letter to Staten Island Advance, Sulsona wrote that three compassionate employees, David, Marcus, and Souleyman, sprung into action and placed him in a separate chair while they worked on repairing the wheelchair. “The actions of these three employees at Lowe’s showed me there are some who still believe in stepping to the plate,” the veteran wrote. Check out the full story here!

I’m not as into nails/beauty stuff as I want to be. So when Kristi from Alligator Toe contacted me about participating in her nail art link up I figured it’d be good for me to at least try. Each month there is a theme, this month? Ice cream (apparently July is National Ice Cream Month – who knew?). After thinking about trying some really intricate designs, I remembered I’m actually terrible at painting nails. In an attempt to not discourage myself, I went with sprinkles (and really, who doesn’t love rainbow sprinkles?)..

An 8-year-old’s piano recital may not sound like the musical event of the summer, but for one community in Minnesota, it was exactly that. On Saturday, Dylan Spoering’s front porch piano recital in Minneapolis drew hundreds of people, according to Fox 9 News. It all started when Dylan made posters for the performance he planned to hold on his front lawn, and a local musician named Thomas Rehbein saw the sign. Rehbein decided to make aFacebook page to encourage people to attend. Check out the full story here!
