The snow is melting! Hurray! We've been having lots of rainy days which are actually quite wonderful; I love being warm inside my car while the rain is hurrying down outside or sitting by my wood stove and hearing it drip down off the eaves of my little house. Last night we had a miraculous break in the weather and a few of my friends came over for a bonfire. We played Fleetwood Mac and Johnny Cash on the guitar and had a little singalong, and ate HUGE s'mores with these gargantuan marshmallows that my friend Lisa stumbled across in the supermarket. It's funny, you never get too old for s'mores, they've been a staple at every bonfire I've attended!
Boots, Dress (a grandma nightgown I altered), Belt, Leather Jacket: Vintage
Today is my first day off in eight days so I'm going to celebrate by sleeping in late, making a huge breakfast, and sitting inside one of my favorite coffee shops to watch the storm over the lake. I came across a sweet garage sale yesterday and bought a dress and a skirt which are both too big for me, so I'm going to do a little altering and hopefully they'll make an appearance here soon! I've been thinking about selling some of clothes and shoes (I came to the realization that I have far too much in my closet after a friend remarked that they felt like they were in a theater dressing room when they saw my bedroom) on ebay or etsy to declutter my life a little bit. Would anyone be interested in buying some of the clothes I've featured on the blog and/or do you have any advice about selling online? I'd love to hear it!
As always, please tell me what you're up to! I love hearing about all of your exciting lives, especially those of you who live in the big city! I'm living vicariously through you!
P.S. Here's a little outtake; "Hey tripod, I'm talkin to you!"
