...a wild child.

Recently J. Crew has released it's spring inventory and I am in love.

I can't show you pictures, because it would be a breach of all sorts of things, but I will update this post with pictures as soon as possible of the tee shirt with silk puffy sleeves, the lime and grey printed skirt that has to be from the seventies, and the endless v nick tee shirts in fresh colors I plan on wearing everyday this summer with a silk scarf as a headband and my faded blue jeans.

Relaxation comes in an outfit, the lifestyle follows, and I have found my outfit of choice.

...a blunt cut.

Last week I decided I needed a change. That is a lie. Three months ago I decided I needed a change. Last week I decided that a hair cut was the form that change would come in. Here was my inspiration. 

And here is the result. 

I love it. absent sister.

Today I miss my little sister Michelle more than ever, because it is the day before her birthday and she has been on my mind. Birthdays aren't a terribly big deal where we come from, so the little things we do get around to mean a lot. On birthday mornings there are no presents, rarely cheery greetings, and no sleeping in. What we do enjoy (lick the plate type) are more waffles than we can eat. Mom breaks out the strawberries and anything else in season and piles on the whipped cream. This isn't actually the unusual part; the thing we Farnsworth children look forward to the most is commanding the 'you are special' plate. It is the one time a year we have something to ourselves. 

In lieu of a special plate (or the proper planning that might have delivered one on time) here is this birthday wish for my birthday sister, 

I hope you feel special tomorrow! And that you have something all to yourself, wether it be a moment or a gift that arrives on time. 

Love you Michelle.
