Christy: Layover

I find that the week between Christmas and New Years has an unusually "in limbo" feel to it. I wrote a poem the other day about how this week is like a travel layover, where you're waiting in the airport for the next year to arrive so that you can climb on board. I thought the idea fit pretty well.
This morning I actually woke up early instead of sleeping in and went for breakfast with my friend. We managed to get the early bird special and I got blue berry pancakes which were pretty wonderful.
My friend Noemie gave me a pair of boots that had been passed to her but didn't fit her. I have a theory that a piece of clothing once passed along can often pass from hand to hand several times before settling down again. Well hopefully these boots have settled with me for a while.
I love the bright colour.
It being almost the New Year, I was flipping through the archives of my year in blogging and I was a little disappointed with myself. I could tell a lot of my posts were done quickly and that I had often been lazy and taken pictures in rooms with terrible lighting rather than venture outside. I still may do a retrospective of this year because even if my blogging was sometimes sub-par I do think my style has evolved and I have grown more adventurous over the past year.
The scarf I'm wearing here was a Christmas gift from my friend Sophie. Up close it's incredibly intricate. It was a really lovely gift. This t-shirt is one that got left behind in my cabin at camp and this sweater belongs to my mom so this outfit is a serious sporgus-board of people's clothing. But that's the best kind of outfit right?
So maybe I'll try to do a retrospective. Or maybe I'll just make it my new years resolution to post more often and to make my posts higher quality. Either's a new year soon.
