hi there. i can explain my absence. it’s a little issue i have called pre-travel freakouts. i’ll get to that in a minute. but first, i come bearing two yellow outfits from yesterday.
scadstyle closed yesterday. much to my dismay (mixed with a little delight to not have to plan outfits daily). i made it to a panel on the importance of handmade and one of a kind. then i planned on going to the final event which was a lecture by hamish bowles. which i missed. but! i had the joy of making a happy discovery: the ghurka also comfortably fits a bottle of wine! good. to. know.
i have had a bit of an issue with getting anything accomplished today. because of my anxiety involved with my impending trip. don’t get me wrong, i am thrilled about going to see my family. but i have major packing issues. i allllways over pack. and manage to forget something crucial like, underwear, for example…and have a surplus of unnecessary items, like big, dangly earrings (which i never add to my mix anyway). but, i digress (mainly as a means to avoid going into the bedroom to pack).
tonight evan and i are going out to indulge in a fancypants dinner out at a fabulous restaurant (courtesy of my magical magical mom) and will be celebrating our past two years of living together. and i suppose i cannot allow myself to go out and enjoy myself until i’ve packed. and i can’t begin to pack until i enjoy a photo montage of my incredible family (motivational technique to induce desire to pack)…and so here i go.
and with that, friends i am off to pack (fingers crossed i don’t forget anything) and then enjoy a magical evening with evan. and then i am on a plane early early early tomorrow to go see people (and kitties) i don’t get to see nearly enough.
i’ll have dispatches from the joyfully cooler north.
