Can You Hear the Crickets Chirping?

I’m sure you guys have noticed the blog has been a bit slower than usual this week. I meant to post something in the beginning, but I didn’t have the time (the ones you saw were scheduled well in advance).

Truth is, I’m not even that busy most of the time. I am, however, in the middle of moving. David and I are finally in our own place, albeit with a lot of love and support from family. It feels really nice to be in our own space, although I’m definitely grateful to the family members who hosted us for September. No, the reason there’s been no blogging is simple–there’s been no internet.

No internet.

It’s silly how crippling that can feel. I’m the girl who refused to have internet the entire time I was living alone–several years. I mean, I figured if I needed something bad enough I’d head to campus or a coffee shop. I could do a similar thing now, except my knee is still bad. Not as bad, but still requiring crutches for distances further than the stretch of our apartment.

Moving, no internet, and a bad knee. That, my friends, is why I’m quiet. I’ll be making noise soon, though. David ordered internet and they’re shipping the appropriate tubes to us as we speak.

Sequins: …And I’m back!

It’s like magic! I’m in a new town, and entirely not unpacked, but I’m finally at a point where I’m not making a 3 hour round trip voyage every day, and the wedding season is officially over, and I am allowed to breath! Yay!

Also, it’s a good thing Stripes didn’t speak for me in that last post because while both of us were too busy to post last week, one of us warned the world and feels not a single ounce of guilt 😉

Being that I’m still very much still living in boxes, and since where I’m living is not where I’ll be living permanently (it is but a rock in the river to land on before jumping again), outfit posts have been hard to come by. Not impossible, though, so without further ado, I’d like to take a moment and talk about the magic of moving.

I’ve moved a lot in my limited 24 years–about 10 times that I can clearly recall. Each time is the same. I lose things that I don’t remember losing. This time is was the amazing typewriter necklace that my darling friend Violet gave me. I kept hoping it’d turn up during the move, but alas. I’m still hopeful that I might find it in a purse, since I have a weird habit of taking of necklaces during the day and depositing them in whatever handbag I have handy.

The upside, though, is that I find gems that I clearly remembered losing and have been pining for!

Anyone else notice that this skirt hasn’t appeared on the blog since it’s introduction? That’s because it hasn’t appeared in my life since shortly after it’s introduction into my life. Apparently it fell behind my dresser, but I’ve found it and washed it and was super stoked to wear it! And that’s a good thing, since my current wardrobe consists of barely over thirty articles of clothing. It’s the new 30 for 30, apparently. Hopefully we’ll be permanently settled soon!

Stripes: Moving Day

Hey lovely readers, yesterday was The Day: the day I finally packed up all my stuff and left this town I’ve come to view as my home over the last 5 years. Although this move is definitely bittersweet and I have all sorts of feelings I would love to share with everyone (I am terrified to leave the safety and comfort I’ve found up here but I’m also really excited for my upcoming travels and starting a new job…are a hint of the emotional roller coaster that is leaving your college town) I honestly am a little caught up with everything that goes into moving. As such, and to save my overworked, emotional brain, today I want to spend a little time celebrating this change with some totally hipster instagrams of some of my favorite parts of this town that I am going to miss so dearly.

And yet, I get to move home to this little lady, making all these changes quite a bit sweeter (you can also expect to see a whole lot more of her around these parts!):

Alright, it’s time for me to start unpacking and settling in.
