Rebecca's post yesterday reminded me that I totally missed my two year blog anniversary! I was waiting and waiting for it to come, and just like that it was ten days ago. I don't know how I missed it. Needless to say, I will be coming up with some sort of belated celebratory post. I've actually been thinking of doing a vlog (I hate that word. It's so awkward. I refuse to say it out loud, mainly because I can't figure out how I want to pronounce it) answering questions that you guys have. I don't have a formspring or anything where you guys can ask questions, so what if you just left any question– serious, silly, meaningful, strange, etc.– in a comment on this post and I'll see if I can answer them in a video (or perhaps a series of videos, if there are lots of questions). I think it would be fun. I've been meaning to do another video since I promised another makeup tutorial, so this could be a way to force me to follow through, eh?
Last night there was a big dinner put on by the missionaries that are staying in our house. With the help of a bunch of volunteers they cooked a multi course meal of delicious Italian food for a huge group of friends and supporters. It reminded me that they were the ones who actually taught me how to make Bruschetta two years ago, which I basically lived off of my entire senior year of college. I'm serious. I could eat a 4 course meal of only Bruschetta. Bruschetta and pizza for the rest of my life. Mmmm.
I think this is one of my favorite dresses of all time. It's so comfortable and it fits perfectly. It's one of those vintage maxi dresses I shortened. I would love to try a maxi style, but It's excessively difficult to find a maxi dress that actually is maxi on a 5'1" person, not dragging beneath my feet. I really cannot remember a time in the past few years in which I wore a floor length dress or skirt... this is making me think I should give it a go.
In other news, not only did I totally fail at going to bed before midnight last night... I even failed at going to bed before 1:00. Wednesday, be gentle.
Welcome! We're stoked you're here. Get cozy and we hope you're inspired to create a creative and joy-filled life!
