That's Lucy and me at an Iowa rest stop. I drove about 600 miles comfortably in the above outfit--dress, leggings, cardi, flats. The drive was also made tolerable by five hours of Richard Armitage reading Georgette Heyer's Sylvester aloud, and many more hours of Sarah Vowell reading her Unfamiliar Fishes. (Yes, I have only just discovered that audiobooks are pretty much the best thing ever when you have to spend two full days in a car.)
I did not eat one of these.
Photos from western Iowa. (The perfect soundtrack for looking at the hundreds of wind turbines along I-80 is Elbow's song "The Birds," FYI.)
Every thrifter's dream--a basket of wigs! Spotted in a Nebraska Goodwill.
Denver, mountains in the distance.
We had a relaxing trip, and I was able to archive tons of old family photos from the 1800s to the 1960s onto my computer, with the help of my mom and dad. This was lots of fun, and I can't wait to share them!
