well, this weekend is a long holiday weekend for us (in the states) as we celebrate memorial day (and veterans around the world) on monday. in addition, most people will either take a half day on friday or the entire day off. i mentioned back in march that we like to head to palm springs every spring for a little getaway. this weekend we'll embark on our annual trip. we rented a home with three other families; not the one above, but something close to it. i can't tell you how much i'm looking forward to getting out of town, relaxing, and spending time with friends. it's long overdue. in my pretend suitcase, the items above are what i'm packing: linen tunic cover up, striped one piece, sun hat, aviator sunglasses, flip flops, and a missoni beach towel. (that towel is for you, tina!) did i forget anything? oh, reading materials. you know what i'm reading right now. question is: what do you like to read when you're lounging by the water?
update: don't forget about this friday's cocktail party! i'm excited to learn more about each of you. i think we've got a great group gathered for friday. just a few last minute details to tighten everything up. this exercise is a one time post, all going live this friday, march 25th. some are choosing to use the "things i'm afraid to tell you" phrase and movement in its current form. however, for those who are not comfortable using this phrase, haydee (of happenstance) came up with a brilliant alternative, "something(s) about me." simple and effective. hopefully, by taking the word "afraid" out, the prompt will be a little less intimidating to write. you could choose to share something(s) personal or fun; it's up to you. whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. whichever way you decide to go, just have fun!
ok, everyone, see you on friday!!
