Pause Please

Have you ever wanted to press pause on your life?  There are certainly times I would have preferred to fast forward through, and others I'd love to rewind and relive... but right now I just want everything to stand still.  There seem to be few moments when all aspects of life seems hopeful, happy, and right... and lately life seems to be all these things.  So I'd like press pause.  Please?

Great look; the nude shoes are a real winner!

Yes, there have been many times I wanted to hit pause...and a few when I wanted to hit fast forward as well, lol.

heather, I am so glad that you are happy and satisfied with your current situation. I can press pause for you if you want ;-). you look gorgeous in your floral dress, some pop of colour for that cold fall season.

I'm really loving this dress, especially the slight high-low cut. I know what you mean about pressing pause! It seems like the last six months have flown by! I'm caught in between savoring fall and wishing for Christmas!

Jackie said...

I definitely know what you mean. Generally when I'm at work I would love to fast forward but there have been so many lovely moments lately that I would have loved to pause and stay in for a little while longer. I'm always trying so hard to appreciate every moment(good or bad) even though it's definitely a challenge sometimes!

Also, your dress is beautiful! I love how you transitioned it seamlessly into fall.

I totally relate to the feeling of wanting to press pause! I'm kind of in one of those moments right now too.

Lovely dress and I love the leaves in the background!

Lovely dress and yes, I definitely have had moments (or days, or weeks), where I just want to press pause. It actually happens to me a lot around the holidays - something about that time of year just makes me warm and fuzzy inside and I wish it could be like that year-round! :)


Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

i wish we had control buttons for our lives! that would be great. hahaha love the print of your dress! perfect for fall.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

This dress really elongates your legs!

And yeah, it would be nice to be able to press pause on life every now and then.

Terry S said...

Midwest Muse said...

If only there were a pause button. How fun would that be? What a pretty dress. I love the print and colors. Oh and the super fall scenery.

Kathleen Lisson said...

The rapidly changing fall colors show us how fast life is moving along!

Katherine / Of Corgis and Cocktails said...

i definitely would like that. i have so much going on right now. i also wish fast forward were an option too! i love this dress on you - the pattern is lovely

<3 katherine

Shea Sayers said...

What a wonderful feeling! I'd want to pause too if I were you. I'm feeling kind of the opposite way right now. I want to fast forward to having a job that I like and I don't have to keep job searching!
This is such a pretty look too, and I love the fall background!

Always Maylee said...

Coffee and Cardigans said...

I can think of at least a dozen times I would have wanted to pause my life this last week. Sometimes to enjoy a moment, sometimes just to catch my breath. I completely understand what you mean!

Also, loving this adorable outfit! The dress is lovely and you did a great job keeping it autumn friendly with that longer cardigan.

pretty pics !!

Catherine said...

I have been there too - although I have to say, I would rather be wanting to press pause than doing what I am usually guilty of - wanting to fast forward! Too often I look to the future instead of enjoying where I'm at. Your outfit looks beautiful, and I'm glad you're so happy! :) (P.S. Color Challenge is next week if you'd like to join!!)

Dreamer Anete said...

Looks so great outfit! :)
Maybe you want follow each other?

Juneli said...

Wow, Heather, I can't decide which one is the best, the colorful fall foliage in the background, or the beautiful floral printed dress, or the even more beautiful lady surrounded by a plethora of flora and fauna! In the end, YAY to all three!
