Upgrades

Lately a theme of upgrades permeates my life. My flight to Miami this week was upgraded to first class on a large plane. I had a seat that nearly lay completely flat. After two glasses of merlot with dinner I laid down and slept. It was the best beginning to a business trip ever. I…

Positive Vortexes

Z and I are back from our long vacation through the southwest. The trip lasted forever, or so it felt. I guess that means we really needed a break and packed in a lot of sight seeing and hiking. We visited the Hoover Dam, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend,…

Cool weather formula

I've fallen into a safe uniform formula for the cooler weather lately. A lightweight sweater and pant with a cardigan or wool jacket if I need a layer for going outside. The photo with the beer is from today. It's been Hell Week at work, which I knew was going to happen. Why? Because I'm…

4 days, 1 pant

Wearing the same pant until Friday was surprisingly easy. I was reminded of my old uniforms where I wore a tee and jeans every day. Usually the same jeans with a different tee. Once again I'm questioning do I really need half the clothes I own? Probably not, but feeling the gut wrenching remorse of…

Plants saying hi

I took these photos nearly a month ago and the status has changed a bit. Also, I excluded some photos because I should just take new ones. The above pilea glauca aquamarine has been a total pain for me. It's constantly dying and I've tried everything I can think of to keep it going, but…

Everything changes

I'm on a light color and monochrome kick. A dress! This is the only dress I own right now. I just got it from Knock Knock Linen (after nearly two months). It's heavy weight linen so it's got a nice heft to it that makes me feel grounded and safe in it. The pockets are…

Clothes without a job

As I was getting ready for work one day I thought: what if I didn't have this job? How would I dress? If I didn't have to work would I still have the same clothes in my closet? Would I have as many? Considering people associate themselves with their lines of work or what they…

A Sunday

Random thoughts interspersed with random photos I've taken. Yesterday Z and I went to a friend's pool party. She has it every year - going for 5 years now. It's a birthday pool party for her (she and Z were born on the same day so she'll say happy birthday to him when everyone else…

Lots of linen

All three tops are made with linen to some degree. The first two are from Etsy shops with medium weight linen. The last one is a cotton/linen blend cardigan and light enough to wear on 80-something degree days without getting too warm. The first top (green) is my second item from Knock Knock Linen and…

Thank you…GTNP tee shirt

This bamboo and cotton blend shirt was bought from the Grand Teton Visitor Center in 2010. Proceeds from all purchases in national park visitor centers go towards upkeep and maintenance of the parks. There were many colors of the shirt and I wanted to get the red and orange ones as well, but this strange…
