My mother called me yesterday to let me know I could bring my grey EF organic cotton tee shirt (the one I’m wearing here) to the beach because she’s bringing her blue one (she also has this grey one). Haha…That made me smile. I loved that she would be concerned that we were wearing the same thing. She was also worried about that for my nephew’s graduation: my step-mom also has quite a bit of Eileen Fisher, as does my sister, and she was worried about all of them looking alike. They did, because they were all wearing Eileen Fisher LOL, but I thought it was great 🙂 I wore James Perse.
Anyway, I told her I probably wasn’t bringing this top because I don’t wear it as much as I thought I would. That’s always a challenge to me though, so I pulled it out and wore it the rest of the day yesterday and am wearing it again today. *shrugs*
I had the best of intentions today. I was going to write a big, juicy post that would hold you through my vacation next week. I started penning my thoughts about Leah’s Fourth of July article (so good…), and I also wanted to finally address my thoughts on some political issues, but I mostly want to explain why I choose NOT to talk about such things here (it may not seem like it, but I’m a quiet person and prefer not to “advertise” the things I do to make the world a better place – in my view, anyway; maybe I’m old school, but that is something you do quietly and consistently, not loudly and when everyone else is doing it).
But I’m not feeling very articulate today and am afraid if I try to put more of my thoughts down they won’t be as coherent as I’d like them to be, so I’m going to wait.
I’m feeling much better and looking forward to vacation next week, but for me, excitement is always always always overshadowed by anxiety. I’m worried about having what I want/need with me (I can be pretty high maintenance LOL), about the 13 hour drive on Sunday, about 12 (13?) people sharing a house for 5 days, about the weather, about the rental house…
This is nothing new; I write about packing/travel anxiety every.single.time I write about a trip or vacation. This time, I’m not really concerned about clothing – we’re near the beach, and the house has a pool, so I’ll be wearing caftans, etc. most of the time – it’s more about food. We’re going to be nowhere near a big grocery store chain and I’m waaaaaaaaaaay too particular about what I eat.
Ah, never mind, it’ll all turn out beautifully and we’ll have a great time. I am so grateful I get to spend time with so much family next week!!
I probably won’t post at all next week, and won’t have any new arrivals at slowre, but you guys, I just got several shipments in and most of it is ELIZABETH SUZANN!!!!! So that will be trickling in the rest of July….
I do hope you all have a great weekend and week ahead, whatever you’re doing !! I’ll miss you!
