Good Morning America

And back to school I go!

So from my capitol city love, I bring this patriotic beauty.  Purchased from my favorite vintage boutique in all of DC–Via Gypset.  I happened to catch a glimpse of it hanging in the back behind a closed door…aka it was not for sale yet…But as my going-away gift to myself, I went back and HAD to have it.

The day I left the city, I rented a car, packed it with my many suitcases, drove to Woodley Park, and bought it.  Good ideas.

A 13-hour car ride and day of unpacking later, this is the Evansville debut!

Home to the wife and two kindergarten girls who are waiting at the top of the escalators to surprise you.  Home to the Chipolte bag in the left hand and six-pack of tall boys in the right.  Or home to the 169 pages of “pleasure” reading that happened to be the newest dialogue on editorial philosophy.
