The Last Two Months
Two! Whole! Months! *whistles*
Instead of doing that blogger thing (which I have definitely done before, in full disclosure) of apologizing for my absence, I'm just going to give you a super abbreviated look at what I've been up to. To what I have been up.
(How do I get that sentence NOT to end on a preposition? It's like the world's 8th mystery. Or something.)
I'm planning several (several) detailed posts about the below events with plenty more pictures, stories, and travel recs, but here's a little preview:
>>I attended two bridal showers.
>>I attended three gorgeous, hilarious, heartfelt, impeccable weddings.
Carey's, in Nantucket...
(where Carey's husband taught us all to saber a champagne bottle at the night-after cool down.)
Freyan's, in Brooklyn...
(where I spent the entire weekend with my high school group of girlfriends, when we hadn't all been together like that in years and year.)
And Missy's, back in California...
(where there was much dancing and donuts. Need I say more?)
>>I spent a cumulative total of 6 wonderful, hectic, soul-satisfying days in New York over a period of 2 weeks, flying back and forth to the East Coast twice within a week and a half for the aforementioned weddings.
>>I attended Valerie's baby shower.
It's crazy to me that we met almost ten years ago at the start of law school, and now she's growing a tiny human inside of her that I'll get to hold and dote on and give back immediately upon any questionable smells or noises. I can't wait to meet you, BB8!
>>And then had to say goodbye to Val living in SF, as she and her boyfriend moved out of the neighborhood and up north.
(our last Saturday coffee date...)
>>I was asked to be Maid of Honor in my best friend's wedding next fall!
(don't worry Carly, the speech I'm already planning will make you cry. And I won't re-enact anything from the movie of the above-mentioned title.)
>>And, if that wasn't enough, I worked a full time day job while dreaming up several new patterns for this year's SF Etsy Indie Emporium holiday market, my favorite handmade market in which I routinely participate.
So, sadly, there was not a ton of time left over for blogging. There has barely been time for sleeping! Thank goodness people don't need much of that, right?
And, to cap off this list, I'm thrilled to say that today I'll be casting my ballot in person to elect who I hope will be our country's first female President!
How about you? How was your October?
(We'll be back to our regularly scheduled posting soon...)
