Still Into It

Still absolutely loving my short hair! Watch, in a few weeks I’ll be here complaining about missing longer hair, ponytails, and messy buns. I’m nothing if not mercurial (I’m really not).

I Finally Got Off My Ass...

Well, I finally got off my ass and went to get my hair coloured and chopped off – it’s long overdue as I was originally planning on doing this in March and then, well, a global pandemic happened. I’m really, really pleased with the cut. I always forget how much I enjoy having shorter hair. I think I’ll keep it this way for a while now.

Empty Office

Nothing like getting into a suit just to go sit in an empty office by yourself and putter around for half a day. While it definitely felt like a weird thing to be doing, I was actually pretty happy to have an excuse to get out of the house and into the office for a few hours.

All the Frills: Zoom Party

Eleanor turned 3 on June 20 and, while an in-person party wasn’t really possible, I still think we did a nice job of decorating and hosting a little Zoom party for her. Honestly though, how is she this old already?

The Cape I Didn't Need (Is There Such a Thing?)

So I broke down in terms of online shopping and ordered a cape blazer – it’s suede and I both 100% did not need it and 100% adore it. Sigh. I need to get myself in check over here.
