Well spent Saturdays

Awh heck - the warm weather is here (for the most part) and I finally feel like a normal human being again. I've been walking instead of driving and taking the long way and finding new little bits and pieces of Boston that I didn't think existed before. Yesterday I went for a little stroll around the South End and Back Bay and I ended up (four hours later) back at the car with with blisters and crooked toes from wearing shoes that are too eencie for me feet - but, it was no matter because there was vanilla soda and caramel swirl ice cream to keep me distracted, oh and also my favorite faraway visitor to keep me company.

May 2nd


I braided my hair and made a little headband across the top because it was just being unruly in the morning and it seemed like the best fix.

I also met this funny little tinny snail along my way.

lovely dress. it goes so perfectly with the hair too.

it's so sad that the trees are starting to lose their blooms. they smelled so wonderfully just a few weeks ago, and now the endless rain is just washing everything away.

I need to learn how to braid my hair like that. Until then hair bows will have to hold me over. I adore your dress.. .& the teensey snail for the snail & the cyclops goes very well.
