Guess who has two ashy thumbs and armed herself with her tripod and went down the street from school during lunch time and took her own photos in the freezing cold? YES. Me.
I work in the hood and I wasn’t too sure if I should be rollin’ down the streets of East Palo Alto trying to snap pictures of myself for blogging purposes, but after driving a few blocks away from school, I
ran into drove by this trail and decided that I should put my point and shoot to good use.
I’ve been attempting to get myself all squared away for our trip to Fiji (two weeks and some days, yay!), so when I saw this maxi skirt on Target’s website a few weeks back I knew I wanted it for our trip. It’s comfortable, colorful, and perfect for Fiji. These citrine flats are not too shabby, either.
This week we moved to Redwood City and I’m super happy about the transition. Instead of it taking an hour to drive 16 miles north(Bay Area traffic is ugh) it now takes me 10 minutes to drive eight miles south and so you know what that means, right? I GET TO SLEEP IN! I’ve already discovered my new dry cleaner, a new homemade ice cream shoppe, my tailor, three new thrift stores, and a hiking/running/walking trail. What I have not discovered is the art of successful unpacking. I have trouble focusing (for all of you that sit behind me in church you know why I shift around so much. Sorry.) and I’ve been trying to unpack things, but it ain’t working!!
In the middle of all of the packing I ended up selling a big chunk of my wedding decor on Craigslist. I really wanted to hang on to this couch, but I had to let it go. The woman who came to buy the wedding junk is getting married in April; I let her buy the couch, a trunk, candles, and all of my vases. A guy came and bought this dresser that we used for our wedding favors and that was that. I think I held on to the items for a long time because, c’mon, I planned that crazy wedding in seven months and it was over in, like, eight hours and I’m sappy and I wanted them for memories. Alas, the time came for us to part ways with said wedding items and now they are gone. Well, the big items are gone. Luckily, I get to keep Brandon! He’s a sweet part of the wedding deal. I mean, this guy seriously SENT ME FLOWERS this week because we moved into a new house. Ha! Whatta gem.
Tell me: what unpacking tips do you have for me? Am I weirdo for being sentimental about my wedding decor?
wearing: H&M v-neck sweater (I covered up the deep neckline with the scarf; last seen here), Target chiffon floral maxi skirt, Sole Society flats, random vegan leather bag (similar here, here, and here)
