Growing up in my childhood home, my bedroom overlooked a magnolia tree. Whenever the sun shone on the magnolia tree’s pink flowers my bedroom would be flooded with the most gorgeous soft pink light. It was total and complete heaven. Magnolia trees are fickle creatures. One big storm and their pink flowers are washed away never to return for the rest of the season. I used to pray that it would not rain so that I could enjoy those gorgeous flowers as long as possible. Magnolia trees have always had such a special place in my heart and someday I hope that we will have one wherever Matt and I end up living. I wore this dress from Tobi.com for Easter and it can so easily be worn out for drinks or for a family gathering with a great cashmere sweater. I love the nude color. All of the Magnolia trees are in full bloom in the suburbs and it was almost too much for my magnolia tree loving heart! Get outside and in the midst of these blooming trees as soon as you possibly can!
