        I love getting mail.  Like it is the highlight of my day.  I love magazines, and packages, and cards.  Recently I discovered Ipsy.  It's only $10 a month and you get new makeup every month! It even comes with a little makeup bag each month.  This is perfect for me in so many ways.  I never EVER buy makeup.  And when I do go to buy some, I can never make up (no pun intended) my mind, and usually walk away empty handed.  Another reason it's great is it let's me try new brands and colors I might not usually pick for myself. I literally buy the same products I did when I was sixteen.  Anyways, I get my first package in December.  I'll let you all know how it goes.

So I'm a few Ballet classes in.  I'm actually doubling up on classes at a few different studios because it's so much fun, and I'm sooo bad at it.  My flexibility seems to be the big thing holding me back so I've been trying to stretch a lot.  I've mastered the bun though, so at least I have that.

Now all I need are these catbird cashmere shorts to go over my leotard and I'll be in business.

It's been so long

           Hello world.  I stopped posting on here over a year ago.  So much has happened in that year.  I moved to Boston, I've had two jobs, two apartments (just moved into my new one), I'm engaged and planning a wedding (Crazy!).  I've still been doing some knitting (see bobble scarf below), I also have some new interests - Dance.  I am taking Ballet and Tap classes at The Brookline Studio and The Brookline Ballet School.  I had my first tap lesson today and it was amazing!  I took dance when I was much younger and while it may not be like riding a bike, there was something still there - it came back much more naturally than I thought it would.  
         Another thing taking up much of my time is planning my wedding.  Peter and I are getting married this May.  I'm not much of a wedding person.  I never imagined any aspect of my own prior to the engagement so theres a lot of work to do and decisions to make.  So far we have the date (May 17, 2014), the venue (Centennial Farms Manor), and the save the dates which we will be mailing out these next couple of weeks, and that's about it.  No dress, no caterers, no colors, or details, or photographers, or entertainment, or flowers.  And while the wedding is 6 months away (eeek!) I'm not too stressed because I have a lot of ideas.  
       Anyways, it feels great to be back here.  I have so many wonderful things going on in my life, and I'm feeling very inspired.  So check back often as I'm hoping to post on a weekly basis.
