When I'm weak, I draw strength from you
I promise I have not fallen off the edge of the world, I have merely been busy doing other things - like relaxing for one. School was fun but living in the city really took its toll on me.. I am completely exhausted. Luckily I have now been back on the island for a little over a week, and have gotten my tan back.. and a new hair color. Photos of such to follow.
Before flying back to the island, boyfriend and I took a little trip to celebrate our 3rd year anniversary. La Union was beautiful on a Monday, deserted and scorching hot. We spent two days learning how to surf, drinking lots and lots of beer and sitting on the balcony and counting the seconds between the time the sun hits the surface of the water until it disappears completely into the horizon. The colors were just beautiful, the indigo of the water and the fiery red sky..
Back in the city, we consumed those drinks. Open bar all night. Very dangerous.
I have been sewing like a maniac too.. I just completed my first maxi dress, which I made without a pattern. I'm quite proud of it because it turned out quite nicely. I also made a long skirt out of this awesome purple/yellow fabric. Long skirts and a bathing suit are my default beach wear, so I think I will make more of them..
Right now, I am about to attempt to make a pattern for a romper. Wish me luck!
