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…

A Saturday

The summer heat is draining. The front flower beds look post-apocalyptic from overgrown weeds. Yet I refuse to go out in the hot and humid weather to pull them. I've never liked hot weather and retreat into dark and cool corners. I've started collecting sweaters and socks for cooler weather. Finalizing my "wants" list for…

Apple picking

We went apple picking last Saturday. Our favorite orchard is always busy on the weekends in autumn due to their large variety of apples for picking. They have a schedule of what varieties will be ripe and when and what's available to pick and to simply buy in the market. They update their site almost…

Coincidence?

While I was stuck at home during the massive snow storm yesterday, I thought to myself: this would be a good day to buy those pants I want from PdC. I'm still nervous about buying something so expensive, but at the same time I know I can afford it and I do want them (along…

Getting ready

Tomorrow I start my new job. I'm already wishing I had more time unemployed. I am happy to be doing something different and interested in what the work entails, but at the same time... it's work. *sigh* Having bigger paychecks will be nice. Speaking of... the husband just got a new job as well and…

The time in between

Over the past month my birthday has come and gone, as has my second wedding anniversary to the husband. It's been a mixed bag of fun, stressful, and strange lately. The good: I have a new job. I start in a week, so I get another week of blissful nothingness on my calendar. No phone…

High Rocks

Sunday I went hiking with friends. There are several good state parks close to where we live. This one, High Rocks, is famous for lots of cliff faces people climb. When we arrived, two other guys with lots of climbing gear were getting ready in the parking lot. Some of the rocks also have climbers…

Relaxing

  Today the hubs and I went for a walk at a nearby preserve. It's been the first nature walk I've taken since January. I forgot how relaxing and calm it feels to be surrounded by greenery and nature in general. I was unemployed for a couple years during the recession and every day after…

Achievement Unlock: Baggy Comfort

Shirt: Calo Rosa on Yesstyle. Pants: Fantasy Linen. House slippers: Muji. I know I normally don't post weekend outfits, but I felt like taking photos today. Why did I ever obsess about wearing skinny jeans? I wore jeans once this week and I just wanted to go home and change. They are the comfortable Grana…
