All day I have had the lyrics "I'm leaving on a jet plane..." humming along long long in my brain as I prepare to skip town with my sweetie. Of course I am leaving in a Trailblazer, but that is just a minor detail...
Things have been a roller coaster around here today- trying to get the car serviced, the kids packed and delivered, work done/prepped/planned, bills paid, Nathan to the doctor so he can get some good drugs and be well on this trip etc etc... And now it is 3PM and I still have to go by the accountants get my sales tax form to mail, get 2 custom banners packed and mailed, 2 Storia VINTAGE orders packed and mailed, myself packed and mailed... Oh, wait I just have to pack me. No mailing needed... Just packed and loaded. Sigh...
But even though things are frantic, things also have been good. Nathan did get all kinds of good drugs and should be healed up by tomorrow, Jeanetta came over and helped me with several projects and saved my bacon, and for that I am super appreciative of!
So to Iowa we are headed... We are going to push as far through Missouri as we can tonight. Then we will stop, rest and get up and drive to Centerville for sound check tomorrow at 10AM. Did I not mention that Nathan has a gig? Yes, that is the whole catalyst for this trip. My sweet man has a gig with this fella tomorrow night in Iowa, so we turned it into an excuse for us to take a birthday trip (his is today, mine is Saturday) through next Wednesday. So we are off in about 4 hours and there is still plenty to do to get ready... But I keep telling myself that I can sleep, and rest and slooooooow dooooowwn when we get there....Oh, sweet, sweet vacation.
These pics are of the kind of outfit I wished I was wearing on this fall adventure. I don't think it will get cold enough for the velvet scarf, but I will absolutely have my jean jacket on hand, plus some cute aprons!
I made the leaf brooch using a pre-cut out leaf and some vintage buttons. I think it is super cute and plan on putting some in the shoppes when I return...
I guess the time has come to bid you adieu for now my sweet Internet pals, and hopefully when I return I will have lots of great pictures and treasures to show you, and I know I will have lots of reading to do to catch up with all of you!
Many Happy Returns,
