There's something in the distance - a glorious existence


Growing up I had a balcony off my room, and I would sit out there in the evenings and watch the sky change colors and dream about life and the future and how wonderful everything would be. Somewhere along the way to becoming an adult, I lost that sense of wonder and reckless dreaming. I think it happens to everyone. But every once in a while I'm just suddenly struck by the feeling that the world is a big, amazing, wonderful place full of possibilities. We were up on the roof last night taking these pictures, and afterwards we stood next to the railing and looked out over the beautiful city as the sun was setting and turning everything rosy pink, watching planes take off in the distance, and I just felt like a kid again, with a sense of wonder and mystery about the world. It was delightful.

Clearly I'm feeling more contemplative than in a mood to describe my outfit. To sum up my clothes: ninety-degree weather = wearing as little as possible.

(Bonus points to whoever can name the song the title came from! It was stuck in my head all day yesterday.)







Tank top: Target
Skirt: button-up shirt borrowed from husband
Shoes: Sam Edelman from Piperlime
Sunglasses: TJ Maxx
Earrings: free from aunt
