Black Ruffles

Hello (or guten tag!) from Germany. For those who don't know, in January I was offered a short term assignment on one of our alliance teams in Ingelheim, Germany. I am living in Wiesbaden, about 25-30 minutes south of Frankfurt, and will be here until September. It has been busy switching jobs, packing, and moving, but I'm excited to get back in the swing of regular blog posts. I'm getting settled...I have a little apartment, a company car, and am looking forward to taking advantage of summer in Europe! But one thing I don't have with me here is my husband or pup.

Spring Tweed

I hope everyone has been enjoying 2018! It seems like just yesterday I was writing about the new year, now here we are, weeks away from March. We have had some exciting developments in the Renbarger household over these past few weeks...I am moving to Germany!

4 Years of S&S

Oh my gosh, where have the last 4 years gone?! Four years ago today, I launched this little blog. I had no idea how much I would love blogging, how many amazing people I would meet, and NEVER did I think I'd keep up with it for four years. It has given me focus when I've needed it, given me a creative outlet when I've craved it, and given me a few sleepless nights when I've unnecessarily stressed about it. By most standards, I'm a very small fish in a big pond of blogging. But I am so proud of it and the journey on which it has taken me. It's fun. It was fun then and it's still fun now, so I'm going to keep going as long as I'm enjoying it (Instagram algorithm be damned). 

I thought I'd spend a few minutes (which turned into almost 2 hours) going through some of my old posts. This one above was from 2014 and one of my favorites at the time. I still wear that Kate Spade jacket every spring! Some of the looks are a bit cringe-worthy now, but at the time, I was so proud of each and every post. It's so fun to look back and see my transformation as a professional, as a girlfriend/fiance/wife, and as a self-proclaimed stylist at heart. I hope you enjoy looking back at some of my favorite looks!

Warm & Cozy

Well. It warmed up for a minute. One minute. Then it went back to freezing. But at least we have had some sun sprinkled in there. The cold isn't what really gets to me in the winter, it's the dark and the grey. My mom went down to South Carolina right after Christmas and said she was sad to miss a few of those freezing, sunny days. She said she likes the frigid cold and sun for a few days; said it must be the Norwegian in her!

New Favorites

We're officially a week into 2018! Have you been keeping up with your New Year's resolutions? I didn't make any official resolutions, but have been holding myself accountable to some of the habits and rhythms I'd like to integrate into my daily life. I love the feeling of a fresh start, even if it is just because of January 1st!
