Happy happy

Last week I went to Constantia Gift Market to see my internet-friend-but-also-we're-both-friends-with-the-same-people friend Leila...she runs Bow Peep, where she makes awesomely quirky accessories. I had to show you the lovely things I bought from her...

Ice-cream shaped cookie cutter, pretty bulldog clips, ring and sailor necklace :)

Go look at her blog and pick up some cute things, everything is super reasonable. Oh and it's her birthday today so say happy birthday!

Vulpes vulpes

It's my birthday!

I freaking love my birthday, the way a 5 year old generally does.

Guess what?
This is the year where it all happens. 

Watch this space.

Back in Kansas

Hello blogland, I'm back from the lovely UK!
I would post photos now, but I'm lazy. Here are a few things that have happened over the past 6 weeks...

- I felt free, and happy, and unstuck
- I missed home (this was unexpected)
- I walked. A lot. A lesson people, Mr Price shoes are not made for such things.
- I lost someone I loved.
- I cried in the Louvre.
- I resigned from my job.
- I rethought things.
- I spoke French.
- I ate a lot of sandwiches. Like, a lot of sandwiches. More than the average person would choose to.
- I made friends on trains.
- I missed you, and still do every day.
- I finally won the bird I've coveted since day 1 of Vega
- I felt less angry

It's not good to be 21 and feeling stuck, so I'm attempting to learn how to embrace change.
Wish me luck.
