Okay guys it is a really big day for me today, I am graduating!!! WAHOO!!! I don't know that i have ever been so relieved, excited, accomplished, and who else knows what.....I just feel great!!!! Now on top of that exciting news I have another little surprise! So as my graduation celebration/gift my hubs and I are going to EUROPE!!!! We leave in 5 days and are freaking out! We have decided to leave Hanes behind with grandma's/grandpa's and I have probably already had around 20 break downs about leaving him! I seriously have been bawling like a little baby! I have never been away from him for more than a couple days and I know this is going to be rough for me! I just continue to tell myself this is a once in a lifetime experience so enjoy it!
Now don't worry, while I'm gone the blog will still go on!! You will still get a daily outfit posts and all that fun stuff that I hope you love. The only down side is that I won't be able to answer emails, or questions or who knows what while I'm gone! So if you email me and think I am being mean by not answering I promise I am not! I will try to catch up on everything as soon as I get home, which is the 13th!!  Oh and I most likely won't be able to notify you of my posts each morning on facebook, instagram, twitter or everything else so make sure you just check in each morning to see my daily posts still!
Anyways you are still stuck with me for a few more days before I leave but I just wanted to let all my sweet followers know. Oh and make sure you are following on instagram. I am hoping to share as much as my trip with you as I can while I'm gone and I'm sure you will see more than enough when I get home! I love you all and am so thankful for all you sweet friends!!!

p.s. There was such an amazing turnout with the Elaine Turner giveaway that she wanted to give all my followers a 20% off coupon code to say Thank You! code: CARALOREN20
It's good for one month so don't miss out on the killer deal!

  21. Congrats on graduating! Have soo much fun on your trip! You deserve it :)


  22. Congratulations on graduating!! It is such a relief!! I am so impressed that you have gone through all that & were a mama, hats off to you girl! Cannot WAIT to see how you rock European fashion!

  23. Woohooooo! Congrats on graduating! I bet that's a huge weight lifted off your shoulders.
    & I can't imagine how hard it is to leave Hane behind! I once gave up a trip to Paris & London that was paid in full, two weeks before my trip because I was too scared to miss my family and it is my biggest regret in life thus far :( Just keep thinking that it'll be an amazing experience with you and your hubby and you'll be back before you know it with your little boy! :)

    Have a safe trip!

  24. Congrats! I am graduating in two weeks as well! I was wondering what you majored in?

  25. Welcome to Europe Cara:) You rock!

  26. Congrats on your graduation Cara! Have and wonderful time in Europe! I adore you and Hanes, you are beyond cute!

    Many hugs!



  27. Okay so my husband and I went to Hawaii for a week last month and left our 21-month little girl with our moms. I went through the same thing you did before the trip: bawling, meltdowns, constant prayer, waking up at night with anxiety etc. I was so worried about leaving our girl. Here's the thing: when you get back IT WILL BE LIKE YOU NEVER LEFT except for you will have insane memories of Europe. Hanes will get right back into the swing of things with you, and won't even remember that you were gone. No lasting effects, no strain on your relationship. He will be fine. IF, however, you allow your separation from him to ruin your trip and mar the experience, you will regret it forever (we spent a month in Europe two years ago and I spent way too much time being homesick and now I regret it). So give Hanes a big hug and kiss and then go live it up. Enjoy the time away from him and realize that this is once-in-a-lifetime! Drink up every moment over there and live IN every moment instead of being sad. That's my (unsolicited) advice :)

    Love your blog, you are amazing! You can do it!


  28. Congrats!!! Enjoy your trip.. that's amazing..
