The Lost Weekend

So I’ve started on a new academic project (I’ve mentioned it here before, it’s a piece about strategies of insult among early modern elite women) and the research has just been intense. I’ve been going back through all the primary source material I amassed for my PhD dissertation (I only used about 50% of it in the actual dissertation and book project, so I thought I’d see what I had sitting there unused that might work for this current project) and it basically just led me down a rabbit hole of countless side projects. It was great fun (I’m a researcher at heart) but I lost an entire weekend on it! Them’s the breaks I guess.

These photos were taken a few days before Edmonton got hit with a delicious cold snap (we saw a bit of snow and, as I write this, it's -1 outside). I am so happy that proper fall weather is here - but it's weird to imagine myself being outside right now without sleeves.

I kinda enjoyed the cold snap here too, but I'm looking forward to a bit of a warmer weekend. Maybe we can pull off the no-jacket thing just a few more times?!? Xo, Sarah

I love that top! And those pants fit you like a glove!
I wish I could lose myself in something as interesting as that...my weekends are lost watching tv and being a slug...

You look awesome in red! Wow, I can't believe it's already snowing in Edmonton!

It snowed? You must have been jumping for joy!

Those pants look amazing on you, and I always love seeing a bit of bold color.

Plus, it's not really a lost weekend if you enjoy what you are doing.

I love the way your hair is growing out - it looks so lovely! As for losing a week to research, I know the feeling. When I was writing my book, I wasted countless hours... weekends... months... on research rabbit holes, some of which lead to nothing. But since you got snow - I'm still so blown away by that - I guess it was time as well spent as it could have been ;)
xox,
