speaking of ms. powers i’m on my way out to see her tomorrow. excited to visit, see her new house (she’s been to mine countless times so i am due!) and meet her pups. i love packing for a trip because i usually end up pulling out things i don’t really have the opportunity to wear often and kind of find it meditative. this book, that necklace, this dress .. it’ll be nice to be traveling with my husband alone, it’s unusual for us. then some time with these very good friends, some wine and bbq like we used to do in the old days.
