Driving in the South of France

“Oh, and by the way, there is a fuel shortage due to a strike and you may have trouble filling your rental before you return,” the car rental associate explained, after the papers were signed and the keys were in our hand. This was only our third time ever renting a car, and our second …

Fall 10 x 10 – Day Nine

The home stretch! I’m pretty glad that tomorrow is the last day of the challenge (and also casual Friday so jeans are in my forecast). Today was a typical Thursday; we had our staff meeting this afternoon, but the mood was a little different due to all of the things happening in our state today. …

Fall 10 x 10 – Day Eight

The week is halfway over and the Fall 10 x 10 is three-quarters done! I wouldn’t say I’m feeling stifled with my choices, but I’m feeling a little antsy for some of my more fall-like items like boots and tights and my leather jacket. I don’t want to jinx it, but they are saying we …

Fall 10 x 10 – Day Five

Halfway there! I’m not feeling anxious about getting back to my full wardrobe yet, though I suppose it’s because I haven’t really re-worn too many of my items yet. I’ll just have to wait until day nine or ten to see how I truly feel. Anyway, it’s Friday, Casual Friday, and it’s now officially the weekend! Folks …

Fall 10 x 10 – Day Four

All black again (minus the shoes!), and I love it. Thursday started off a little differently since I had a dentist appointment this morning. I’d forgotten about it when I planned out my ten outfits, but I’m so glad today’s outfit included pants! I can’t imagine that it would be too fun to spend an …
