Caravan Sonnet: February 2017


Aquatica- SeaWorld's Waterpark, Florida

Back in September, before my sister and I went on our Disney Cruise we spent a day at Disneyworld but we also were able to spend a couple of hours at Aquatica - SeaWorld's Waterpark. Ever since a trip to Florida in 2009 my sister and I have taled about going to Aquatica - SeaWorld's Waterpark and so it was so fun to surprise my sister with tickets to the park as a belated birthday present.
My sister and I love waterparks and always have. We laugh that we want to visit all of the major water parks and have been able to visit several and it has been so fun. I shared about how we visited Atlantis Aquaventure on the Disney cruise and it was incredibly fun, and we really enjoyed our time at Aquatica

Aquatica is a fun and family friendly water park that features lots of different slides (including some "tamer ones" and ones that are not for the faint of heart- hello the one that releases the ground below you!) and a fun "lazy" river (Roa's Rapids) that was really one of our favorite things. 
We started with "Roa's Rapids" which is a twist on the lazy river concept. Honestly we did this several times, because it was just a lot of fun. 
This is a fun family friendly ride and it had some surprises that made the ride a bit different and really enjoyable. It was a favorite and if the weather hadn't closed down the park, we probably would have ridden it again! 
After riding Roa's Rapids, we headed over to Loggerhead Lane to ride the lazy river on the tubes. It was fun and so relaxing and one of the things that we loved the most was that you could ride the tubes to different rides on this lazy river.
We were even able to see some of the animals as we floated along!
So after we had rode the Loggerhead Lane for a bit we took our tubes up to ride some of the rides.
One of the first rides that we did was Tassie's Twisters which is a really fun and different waterpark ride.
Basically you ride in a tube and you go through a dark part of the tunnel until you are shot out into this giant bowl where you spin and spin and spin until finally you drop through a hole which shoots you back into the lazy river.
We did this ride several times because it was hilarious and kept making us laugh! After this ride we headed to the dolphin plunge and honestly I don't even know how to describe it because it went by so fast that we definitely didn't see any dolphins but we definitely got a good laugh out of it! 
After this we headed over to Hoo Roo Run and this ride also made us giggle a lot. Basically you soar down a 6-story, 250-foot, triple drop water ride on a huge tube. Emily and I went by ourselves and our tube got turned around and so Emily ended up going backwards with me landing on top of her at the end of the ride. *hahaha* We couldn't stop laughing and we definitely loved this ride. 

Unfortunately due to weather Aquatica closed down a bit early, but we definitely had a blast and we said that we would definitely return to do this waterpark again! 

Here are a couple of tips and thoughts about Aquatica if you are interested in visiting this when you are in Orlando:

1. One of the things that my sister and I enjoyed about Aquatica the most was the fact that there were a lot of rides that could be done together or as a family. We love experiencing the rides together so this was a really neat thing about Aquatica specifically that is not always available at different waterparks. 
2. Another thing that we thought was neat was that there were kids areas by some of the more adventuresome rides. This area in the picture above, the walkabout waters was right in front of the Hoo Roo Run and it was fun to see families waving to each other and all having fun as different family members experienced different parts of the park.

3. Traveling in September like we did was an excellent time to enjoy Aquatica . The park was not that crowded and we never waited more than 5 minutes to go on a ride. It was truly a wonderful time to go visit if you can!

4. The most cost-effective way to enjoy Aquatica is by purchasing the tickets online which you can do at the Aquatica website by clicking HERE. They constantly have different sales going on and it is by far the cheapest way to visit instead of purchasing them elsewhere. 
SeaWorld & Aquatica - Two parks.  One great deal.

If you are interested in combining the tickets to also visit SeaWorld there is a great deal going on right now which you can click the picture above to receive. 

5. Aquatica definitely was set up to be as disability friendly as possible. If you are interested in finding out more, Aquatica has a disability guide which you can read HERE

I hope you enjoyed reading this review of Aquatica! We had such a delightful time and as I write and remember all of the fun and laughter I want to go back and do it all over again! Please let me know if you have any questions!


Monday Inspiration and Encouragement (Volume Two)

I shared a couple of weeks ago that for a while now I have had a dream of sharing some Monday inspiration and encouragement on the blog. Life is hard and I know full well that in the difficult times it can be hard to find inspiration, so a couple of weeks ago I shared my first post (which you can find HERE) and I plan to routinely share with y'all different things that I have found to be really inspiring and encouraging from all different genres and hope that it will encourage and inspire you for your week! 
{one} Traveling, even when you don't go far and only go for a little bit of time is so refreshing to the soul. Last weekend my family and I explored Lake Placid a bit more and rode the Cloudsplitter Gondola at Whiteface Mountain. The views were breath-taking and inspiring and true refreshment for the heart.
{two} I shared this in my last post, but am going to preface this by saying that I love ice skating so the announcement that Meryl Davis and Charlie White will not be competing in the upcoming Olympics felt like an end of an era. At the same time though I felt like giving a standing ovation to their dedication to the sport, the athletic talent and hard work that they have shared, and most of all the way that they are incredible role models for this day and age. Thank you Meryl and Charlie for your beautiful dedication. We all wish you the best as you continue to skate and move forward in your professional career. 

{three} I shared yesterday in my health update that my amazing friend, Blythe, shared a beautiful former post of Kara Tippetts that is absolutely encouraging and inspiring. If you are looking for encouragement as you face a difficult situation you can find her post, battling if and what if only, on the Mundane Faithfulness website HERE. It is simply lovely. 

{four} Speaking of Kara, if you haven't already read, "The Hardest Peace" by Kara I can't recommend the book enough. You will be challenged, encouraged, and inspired by her words of truth. You can find it HERE.
{five} Like everywhere else in the United States the weather seems to want to change every single day. On Saturday it was in the high 50s here and I was ready to move into camp, but yesterday it was 23 degrees. It is simply crazy! But the cooler weather still has me dreaming of warm weather and cruises, especially the Disney cruise that my sister and I took in September. Have y'all been on a Disney cruise? It is wonderful and I can't recommend it enough. If you want to read about our experience you can do so HERE.
{six} Speaking of traveling, one of my dearest friends and I will be heading to Prince Edward Island in October! Eeehhh! This is seriously a dream come true and I am over-the-moon excited about this! Have y'all ever been to Prince Edward Island? Any tips or suggestions you have for us to see or do? We will be doing all of the "Anne of Green Gables" things but are totally up for additional suggestions! 

I hope that you are inspired and encouraged by these six things on this Monday afternoon! What about you? What is inspiring you recently? 

10 More Encouraging Bible Verses for Single Women

Happy Monday sweet friends! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Today I wanted to share with y'all ten more Bible verses that have brought so much comfort, joy, strength, and peace to me during this single season. I know well the struggle and pain of this journey and I find myself going back to scripture for comfort and hope more and more recently. I hope these verses encourage you as much as they have me! 

Know a single friend? Why not pass on these sweet verses to them as an encouragement? Also, if you missed my first post, 10 Encouraging Bible Verses for Single Women you can find it HERESo here are 10 more encouraging Bible verses... 

1. 2 Timothy 4:17 for our deepest unfulfilled longings. Longing, our aching unfulfilled longings for a spouse is one of the hardest things about walking the single journey. Song of Songs 3:2 sums it perfectly when it states, "...I sought him but found him not...". When we struggle with feeling that we were created to be a helpmate and married and long to be married our hearts often feel like they are going to shatter. My longings for a husband is one of the most difficult parts of being single. My heart physically hurts sometimes. I have found such comfort in 2 Timothy 4:17 that says, "But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength..." Every single day the Lord is going to meet us and give us grace and mercy for each day as we trust Him with our deepest longings. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of longing? I have found great comfort in Psalm 84:2 also!)

2. Psalm 20: 4-5 for the ache to be married. As I just mentioned above there is a deep and longing ache to be married that can make our hearts feel broken. As time continues I literally ache to see my dreams of being married come to pass. But the Lord does promise that He will give us the desires of our hearts as we take delight in Him and a daily prayer for me and for my friends who are struggling with the ache to be married is Psalm 20:4-5 which states, "May He give you the desires of your heart and make all of your plans succeed. May we shout for joy... May the Lord grant all of your requests." Let us surrender our aching hearts to the Lord knowing that He is good and that we can trust Him completely. The topic of the ache to be married is a tender subject which I wrote a little bit more about HERE in my post, the ache to be married(Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of aching to be married? I have found great comfort in focusing on who the Lord is and His character, specifically that He is good which can be found in Psalm 100:5 and Psalm 119:68.)

3. Isaiah 43:4 for self-esteem. I was once told that self-esteem means to have "confidence in one's abilities and worth", but sometimes I struggle with self-esteem because I am single. I struggle because of the fact that since no one has "chosen me" I feel that I must not have a lot to offer to another person. Isaiah 43:4 is one of the most beautiful verses to me in this single journey and it states, "Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you..." This precious scripture verse gently reminds me that my self-esteem is rooted in the Lord and HE reminds me who I am... precious, honored, and loved. The Lord deeply loves us and gives us worth- not our relationship status. Cling to this precious verse whenever you are struggling with self-esteem because of being single. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of self-esteem and singleness? Check out Luke 12:7.)

4. Proverbs 28:31 for when you feel unworthy due to past decisions. Proverbs 28:31 states, Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy. As a christian single woman it can be incredibly tempting to torment ourselves with past decisions and mistakes that we have made. But when we take these mistakes before the Lord and ask for forgiveness the Lord is faithful and He forgive us our sins (1 John 1:9). Don't let your past define your future. Rest in the truth that when you have confessed your sin you will be met with mercy. The tender subject of feeling unworthy due to past decisions is an unfortunate and heart-breaking part of many singles experiences. Look to the Lord... grace and mercy await you friends. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of feeling unworthy due to past decisions? A couple of my favorite verses on this subject are I John 1:9, Psalm 51:10, and Psalm 103:12.)

5. 2 Chronicles 20:15 for discouragement. So often in this single journey I find myself feeling discouraged. Sometimes the discouragement comes from circumstances and sometimes it is just with the entire topic of being single. The dictionary defines discouragement as "having lost confidence or enthusiasm or being disheartened" and that is often exactly how I feel. If I am honest, I often find myself more discouraged than hopeful. But the Lord encourages and commands us to not be discouraged (Joshua 1:9) and one of my favorite verses on this topic for the single journey is from 2 Chronicles 20:15 which states, "...This is what the Lord says to you: do not be afraid or discouraged..." The topic of discouragement in the single journey is a tender subject which I wrote a little bit more about HERE in my post, discouragement in the single journey. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of discouragement? One of my favorites is Joshua 1:9.) 

Are you a friend looking to encourage a loved one in their single journey and in the times of discouragement but aren't sure how? Check out my post, How to Encourage Your Single Friends that offers 20 practical tips! You can find the post HERE

6. Romans 8:15 for when we struggle with fear. One of the things that many singles struggle with is fear that they may be alone forever. Romans 8:15 states, "For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave to fear..." but sometimes it can feel like we are a slave to fearful thoughts that we will live all of the rest of our days alone. Let us pray that the Lord would deliver and remove our fears and replace it with the truth that we are never alone because the Lord promises us that He will never forsake or abandon us. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of fear? Check out Hebrews 13:15 and Joshua 10:25.)

7. Ephesians 4:26 for the times you feel angry. Sometimes in the single journey it can be tempting to feel nothing but anger at your situation and the fact that you are single and alone. Sometimes it is anger at the situation and other times, if we are honest, some of us feel angry with the Lord that He has allowed us to still be single after we have been praying for years (or decades) for a spouse. But I do think that all of us would agree that we don't want to be angry. Let us pray that the Lord would take away our anger and place it before Him. What an amazing God we serve that is merciful and loving as He listens to our every emotion. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of anger? One of my favorite is Ecclesiastes 7:9.)

8. Deuteronomy 31:6 for the times that you feel forgotten.  It is so easy on this single journey to feel forsaken and forgotten. I often find myself crying out with the psalmist, "My God, my God why have you forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning." (Psalm 22:1) As my grief threatens to overwhelm me I feel that the Lord has forsaken me (Isaiah 49:14) but then the Lord quietly and gently meets me and lovingly answers, "I have chosen you and have not rejected you." (Isaiah 41:9) No matter our feelings the Lord has NOT forgotten or forsaken us. He has not abandoned or forgotten us. He promises that he will never do so (Deuteronomy 31:6) It can be easy in the single journey to feel forgotten. This is such a difficult thing that all singles struggle with at one point or another which I wrote a little bit more about HERE in my post, when you feel forgotten in the single journey.(Looking for additional scripture verses on the topic of feeling forgotten in this journey? Luke 12:6-7 has been challenging and encouraging for this area for me!)

9. Romans 12:15 for when everyone you know is getting engaged.  There seems to be certain seasons where social media is flooded with news that people are getting engaged. Sometimes it can seem absolutely overwhelming and heart-breaking to hear "one more engagement story". I often feel like Hannah, from the book of I Samuel, as it seems that those who have joyous news become my "rivals" as they gain what I so deeply long for. But just like Hannah we can come to the Lord and lay out all of our pain and anguish. (I Samuel 1:10) As I lay out my heart before the Lord and know and trust that His timing for my life is best, then I am free to rejoice with those who rejoice, because on the deepest level I know that my rejoicing is really rejoicing in the Lord's beautiful timing for each of our stories and journeys. (Looking for additional scripture verses on the tender topic of handling engagement news? Proverbs 10:28 and Proverbs 31:25 have been both tender reminders of God's perfect timing and joy in trusting that!)

10. Nehemiah 8:10 for the Grief Over the Way I Envisioned Life to Be Like. Nehemiah 8:10 states, "This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve for the joy of the Lord is your strength." As I examine my life and think about an upcoming birthday, I often have been struggling with tears as my life, at my age is completely different than I could have ever imagined or envisioned. I long and ache for a love story that honors the Lord, and instead find myself approaching another birthday still single. Just even writing that sentence brings tears to my eyes. And so when the grief is so great and my heart aches for the way that I envisioned life to be, I will remember that the Lord has not forgotten or abandoned me. When I feel like weeping at what the reality of life is like versus what I envisioned, I will cling to the truth that the day before me is holy and the Lord is my strength. 

This topic of grief over the way that we envision life to be is a sensitive topic to my heart and it is one reason why I felt burdened to write September Caravan which will be releasing in on September 1st. If you struggle with this topic, I pray that my upcoming book will be an encouragement to you. You can read more about the book HERE which will be released on September 1st. 

I hope that these verses are an encouragement to you today friends! Praying for each of you who are longing and aching to be married today. 


Hard is Not the Absence of His Goodness

This past week has been an absolutely whirlwind and a mixture of emotions. On Monday I shared with IG community and my facebook friends we received the beautiful news that I have NO new Cancer spots. Next year (at the 5 year mark in May 2018) I can officially say that I do not have Cancer, and to be getting closer to this goal is such a beautiful gift. Thank you for all of y'all who were praying for this appointment and continue to pray for me and my health every single day. 

As we rejoiced greatly in this news on Monday evening, we had tears of joy. Unfortunately within 24 hours I also had tears of frustration as I ended up back in the ER with issues with #courtneytheportney. You would think that I would be used to the ups and downs of this journey, but this week things hit me hard. To be frank, I am very ready to be finished with this season. It has been a long four years and as another milestone marker is approaching, I have deeply struggled, weeping often behind the scenes. Recently, I have felt such a tug-of-war about wishing my story was different. I have cried many tears about the deep aching and longing of dreams that I see others receiving and living while some days I struggle to complete the necessary treatment protocol before me. It is a true relinquishing of many many many hopes and dreams on this long journey to the One who loves me more than life. 

I shared back at the beginning of January that my word for this year was "rachat" which is a french word for restoration and redemption. After I had spent a lot of time praying about the word for the year, I had felt so impressed that this was the word. To be honest, I think I expected things to come in mightily and quickly at the beginning of the year, but the last two months have held some further crumbling of some dreams in some areas. The other day, okay again yesterday, *smiles* I found myself moaning and complaining to the Lord as I was taking my daily walk. I kept saying, "Hasn't this season lasted long enough?" "Hasn't there been enough sickness and pain?" "Haven't I endured enough on this journey?" On and on I went complaining and weeping as I walked. Suddenly there was a huge gust of wind and as I looked up at the trees that surrounded me I stopped short and then I wept... this time remembering.
The wind transported me back to another time period 7 years ago when my health really started to crash and I was taking a walk and I had been crying out to the Lord for answers when there seemed to be none. Another memory flashed through my mind of wind blowing four years ago when I sat out in my front yard crying because I was too weak to walk or stand and a well known hospital in the US had just told me that there was no hope. And then I thought of the wind blowing when I was on my first cruise three years ago this past week and I was watching the sunrise with a gentle breeze blowing on my face and I was begging the Lord for wisdom for an upcoming appointment with my now current medical team. And I thought of last year at this time when I was so excited to have the winter wind blowing on my face as I was able to consistently walk an 1/8th of a mile with no assistance and yet begging the Lord for more. 

I stood there weeping yesterday as I remembered all of these memories and more that continued to go through my mind... times of tears, times of deep aching, times of heart-wrenching heartache, and yet times where the Lord has faithfully answered. Faithfully meeting every single one of my emotional, physical, and spiritual needs, never abandoning me. 

This past week my dear friend Blythe posted a former blog post of Kara Tippetts on Mundane Faithfulness which you can read HERE. I actually remember reading that blog post when it originally was posted by Kara, but this week it had even greater significance to me and gently reminded my gentle and fragile heart of the Lords faithfulness and goodness:

"I do want more time but more than all of that, I want Jesus. More than my wants, I want what I know is mine to receive. It is not easy to receive the hard story when all you want is to live in the simple mundane of today. But I trust Jesus, I trust him. He sometimes must pry my fingers loose one finger at a time, but He is good in His opening of my hands. He is good even if I struggle to choke out the words: HARD IS NOT THE ABSENCE OF HIS GOODNESS."

"Though He slay me, I will hope in Him."
-Job 13:15-

And maybe what I am learning most of all in this journey is the Lord's utter gentleness and mercy, once again. He is so good. He has never abandoned us and He never will. More than anything I want Jesus. Day by day the Lord meets us and the grace and mercy and the blessings as I stop and count them are numerous. 

He is good. He is good. He is good. Hard is not the absence of His goodness. 

I wanted to take a quick moment to say how grateful I am for your extreme patience as I am very behind in responding to some emails, some messages, and some sweet packages and letters that have arrived in the mail in the last couple of weeks. I also appreciate your patience as many of you ask for more regular updates on my health. I know it has been quite a while since the last update and I appreciate your patience. February with my health has been mostly about putting one foot in front of the other, grabbing the good moments and trying to make them last as long as possible, and continuing to press forward with this difficult treatment round. Thank you for your love and patience as I am still working to respond to the outpouring of love. Thank you for giving me grace in this area. 

As always I remain so grateful for all of your prayers for this journey. Thank you for covering  me in prayer, your prayers for my family and loved ones who are walking this journey with me every single day, and for the Lord's provision and mercy to answer each of these requests that are before us. Here are some of the most pressing prayer requests... 

Prayer Requests... 
1. As a few of you are aware the one IV medicine that I am on that is a part of this protocol for treatment round #4 is still giving us some serious issues with #courtneytheportney. Unfortunately this medicine causes ports to clog, and this can be extremely dangerous. There are medicines that help with this, but our number one prayer request is that the Lord would work miraculously and that instead of being dependent on this medicine that the port would flow with absolutely no more issues. 

2. As some of you are aware for the past several years I have been struggling with severe anemia that has caused a lot of issues. At one point in this journey I was able to raise my ferratin level up to about 24 which was HUGE but unfortunately ever since the blood clot last year I have struggled to get back into the double digit numbers. At one point it was very dangerously low, and we are praying that instead of going down (which it is currently doing) it will continue to raise. I am taking several supplements and medicines and eating extremely iron rich food and we are asking for prayer that this would indeed improve as I have struggled in the past with iron infusions

3. As some of you are aware I would continue to ask that you pray that the Lord remove the inflammation that Lyme has caused in many areas of my body. This is a serious prayer request as it comes with lots of different issues and I would covet prayer that this would be answered. 

4. As always we would ask for prayers for the Lord to provide financially. We are choosing to add some additional therapies into my protocol which will cost extra money, and in addition to this I received word that one of my main meds for this treatment round will be increasing in price by nearly $4000 a month and I have some other unexpected expenses (due to the several ER visits that have had to happen in the beginning of this year). It is a very tough time financially. Thank you for joining us in prayer for this request.

5. The infection that I have mentioned several times over the last two months is s-l-o-w-l-y getting better but still needs to be fully healed. Thank you for continuing to pray for this. 

6. I am struggling with one of my IV meds that is causing lots and lots of sickness and pain. Would you please pray that I can handle this difficult med as we continue to up the dosage? Thank you!

7. I have some private prayer requests that I would ask you to join me in praying for.

Thank you for continuing to walk this long journey with me. Thank you for carrying me and my family in prayer. Your support, your encouragement and your love are some of the ultimate blessings on this journey and they are completely priceless. 

"Let us know, let us strive to know Adonai. That He will come is as certain as the morning sun..."
-Hosea 6:3-

"For I will restore your health to you, your wounds I will heal" declares the Lord."
-Jeremiah 30:17

"I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter..."
-Joel 2:25-

A Few of My Favorite Things from Joules

I first shared about my love affair with Joules clothing back in 2015 here on the blog, but have loved them ever since I first saw Princess Kate wear something from the company back in the early part of the 2000 era. Y'all know my love for all things English and Kate, but it went beyond this as I truly fell in love with the pretty (and affordable) version of Hunter boots and floral dresses and scarves and stripped beauty of the clothing and shoe items. The company has expanded to lots of different items, including luggage (which Kate and Wills were spotted carrying back in 2015) and jewelry. 

If you follow me on Instagram than you most likely have seen me in one of my favorite Joules products - their wellies. I have two different Joules wellies but the red ones are a definite favorite of mine and I pretty much live in them during the fall through the early Spring.
Two of my favorite places that I have recently worn them are when my family and I visited Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid and for my Vancouver trip to the When Calls the Heart Family Reunion and When Calls the Heart Set visit. But to be honest if you have been around the blog, or we are connected through Instagram than you have seen me where my favorite red boots pretty much everywhere, including to treatment, my IV therapies, and even sitting in my favorite place in the world- in my woods.

The Wellies come in all different colors and you can find the black version HERE which is also extremely popular. But there are other Joules products that I also love so much and so here are a few more of my favorite things from this lovely company:
1. Their Hats
I shared the above picture on Instagram back in 2015, and I have loved this hat since the day it arrived. I was searching through their collection of summer hats for this upcoming season and there are so many that I am in love with, but one of my favorites is this one:
Natural Dora Hat  Size One Size | Joules US
  Natural Dora Hat Size One Size | Joules US
I love this hat and love how it has a relaxed look and feel that would be perfect for the summer- whether by the sea or just even for a relaxed summer evening. One of the cool things about this hat is that it is crafted from paper!!

Soft Coral Floral Wensley Scarf  Size One Size | Joules US
2. Their Scarves
I have had a love affair with Joules soft and feminine scarves for years now and I was so excited to see that they just released some gorgeous new colors for this upcoming Spring and Summer season.The Wensley scarf collection has a wide range of all different colors and hand drawn designs, and a few of my favorites are:

 and one of my absolute favorites: Soft Coral Floral Wensley Scarf  Size One Size | Joules US
  Soft Coral Floral Wensley Scarf Size One Size | Joules US Soft Grey Beau Bloom Eleanor Gathered Waistband Dress  Size US 12 | Joules US
3. Their Dresses
Several years ago when I first started blogging I was given an opportunity to review a couple of items from Joules and I fell in love immediately. One of those items was a dress and to this day I still wear it. The quality of products amazes me at how wonderful they hold up.

Because of this, I saved my little pennies and a couple of years ago I purchased a couple of Joules dresses that were on sale and still wear these all the time. I loved the fact that they give structure, emphasize the right places, and are so beautifully feminine. They have come out with a few new ones and here are a few of my absolute favorites:
Soft Grey Beau Bloom Eleanor Gathered Waistband Dress  Size US 12 | Joules US
Soft Grey Beau Bloom Eleanor Gathered Waistband Dress | Joules US French Navy Orchid Beth Stretch pleat dress  Size US 10 | Joules US
French Navy Orchid Beth Stretch pleat dress | Joules US Grey Spot Daylia textured Dress  Size US 12 | Joules US
