The arrival of spring has brought with it a ramping up of kids' activities – track, golf, choir, student council, oh my! – an increase in freelance projects for me, and a general chaos around the Dickinson house as we prepare for numerous trips over the next few weeks. Mike is traveling a lot for work, Hayden is going on a class trip to Washington DC, and we are making our annual pilgrimage to Mexico for a little quality time in the sea and sand.
All of which has little to do with today's post, but I feel like I need to present an excuse for neglecting the blog. My new role as Uber driver for the littles (without the cool app - they merely text WHERE ARE YOU?!? when they require wheels) and all the pre-travel prep have sucked up most of my available minutes. Because nothing helps you enjoy a vacation more than spending the two weeks leading up to it packing in everything you're supposed to be doing while on said vacation.
Last weekend was all about getting new shorts and swimsuits for the kids (um, who told them they could GROW over the winter?!?) So while re-stocking their summer staples, I snagged this new striped blazer for myself. And since pandemonium seems to be my middle name these days, it seemed fitting to throw stripes and plaid together for today's outfit. The only thing missing is the caffeine that's fueling these next few weeks. Better make a run through Starbucks on the way to my next Uber pick up!
