Oh, The Places You'll Go!

After putting it off and putting it off, I finally went through my bag last night. The weekly clean-out was delayed due to travel, which resulted in at least five extra pounds of junk. The receipts, wrapers, airline peanuts, boarding passes and loose change were all expected- but finding six hotel key cards from a span of 14 days, surprised me.

Life has definitely kept me on my toes since the first of the year, but every second has been packed with laughter, memories and new friends.

On Wednesday, I'll be visiting my God Daughter's First Grade Class to read 'Oh, The Places You'll Go!' in honor of Dr. Seuss's Birthday. I found it rather apropos that this was the book selected for me.

Thankfully, the proprietor sold us her last Duraflame log for the fireplace in our room :)

Day Glow

As I mentioned in a previous post, my former aversion to yellow was somehow extracted from my senses and I can't get enough of it now. I picked this bright little thing out of the masses huddled on the racks while out thrifting and a white leather jacket that I already had, turned out to be a perfect match to the tank portion of the top- the bottom is actually silk and it has pockets.

Gong Xi Fa Cái

Happy Chinese New Year! It's the year of the Metal Rabbit and good on me for finding this sweet little bunny-print hoodie just in time! From what I understand, you are not to use a knife or scissors on this day as it may cut off good fortune.... that having been said, I was sure to butter my toast with a spoon this morning.

I've got a couple of outfit posts for you tomorrow, but for now there's a log in the fireplace, a cup of tea at my side and The Arcade Fire is playing in the background. Bliss!
