Mint + Raspberry

blazer: f21, dress: twelve by twelve (similar), heels: oasap, necklace: thrifted

So I was surprisingly passive at an intersection the other day. And realized why I am never passive at intersections. Oh for heaven's sake, we're all sitting there waving at each other to go, it makes me sick. Somebody just put the pedal to the medal and get a move on it. Usually that's me. And it will be again from now on. Cemented. I'm definitely over graciousness at the four-way stop. Nobody really likes it anyway, right? If I just go, it increases efficiency for everyone else too. 

Many of these slightly ridiculous personal theories about driving arise cause I spend a lot of time in my car for my job as a home-based Counselor for kids and families. Seriously don't know how I could keep putting one foot in front of the other without moments en route where a song comes on and I actually give it a good listen and worship my God. I had to share one of these with you...

nothing was created, not a mountain or the ocean 
without You there 
before there was a heaven 
Y o u   w e r e   b n d   t o   n o t i n 
but You were there 
now Your glory has opened up the skies
from beginning to end God You reign
over time and space You stand
You   r e n   s o r e n  v e r   a l l
-rush of fools

Alright already, since you're twisting my arm, I'll go ahead and make this the longest post ever and pop in the other song that gave me a nice solid boost, yo.

i've tried more of me and i've  c o   u   d r y
trading You for things that go away
my happiness is found in  l e   o   m   a n d   r e  f  u
i have found the answer is to love You 
and be  l o d   b     alone
i'm so satisfied at the thought of You
growing up in me,  c o v e r i g  v e y t g

Now put that in your pipe & smoke it.

Beautiful color combination. I really like those shoes with the outfit too. The touch of black in the shoes brings out the black in the rose necklace.
