Well, I have just spent the last thirty minutes looking for a top on the Anthropologie website. I saw it yesterday under their New Arrivals section, but decided it was too expensive even though it was everything I love in a top. White? Check. Eyelet? Check. Tunic-length? Check. Fun, colorful details? Check.
And now it is either sold out or I just imagined the entire thing. This is not an unlikely scenario considering that last night I dreamed repeatedly that an owl was tapping a hole through my bedroom window. Whatever the case, this top is now my Moby Dick and I am Captain Ahab. This is what I get for being thoughtful and cautious before hitting Add To Cart. I’d show you a picture of it except those have all disappeared as well. It’s like I’m trying to buy a unicorn.
Other than that, all that is going on around here involves waiting for the school year to end. I can tell I’m in summer mode because I’ve spent the last few days ordering various books that I plan to read over the summer because that’s when I always make up for my lack of reading over the prior nine months.
In fact, even though summer isn’t quite here, I’ve finished two books in the last week and highly recommend them both. I read Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld which is a modern re-telling of Pride and Prejudice and thoroughly enjoyed it. And then I was in such a reading mood afterwards, that I picked up The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin at Target a few days later and finished it last night. Next up is The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah followed by The American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld.
And so since I am about to find myself on a bit of a reading jag, feel free to leave any recommendations in the comments. I always love to know what you’re reading because there are always some unexpected treasures that I find, specifically I’m thinking of The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery that I read last summer and LOVED, but had never heard of until several of you mentioned it.
In the meantime, I still have about 10-15,000 words left to finish my book but I can finally take a deep breath and relax a little bit because I see the finish line. And it is waiting there for me with wine and cheese and maybe a day at the spa.
