Here’s me looking sporty at a diner. If ya know me you know 1) diners are my favorite thing 2) sneakers are not. But since I met and fell in love with my lavender sneakers and Nike got Colin Kaepernick as their ambassador and now I actually work out idk I’ve been feeling sportier than ever. Also I can’t wait for my self tanner to show up in the mail …🙃 I’m looking real pasty.
This is my jam. I had a job where people called each other family and it turned out to be the most toxic place. So much drama, and people thinking they had people who were “loyal” to each other and of course no one was. I used to talk to 10+ people from there and think they were my friends and I literally only talk to one regularly now that I’m not there every day. My bossed used that phrase “we’re a family here” etc. as a sort of unwritten contract for us to work crazy hard for her all the time for less than we deserve. Here is the New York Times article about it.
I went to my sister and Olivia’s graduation last weekend. It was a joy for me to be back in my home town this time cause I got to have 2 girls nights with all my way friends and it was long over due. We stayed at our family friends empty and beautiful upstate ny home drank some mikes hard lemonade (my 1st time lol) and Coronas w my dad and talked about life with all my girls and my dad and it warmed my whole soul. My sister in typical Clara fashion had her graduation dinner at a vegan place and honest I’ve stopped complaining cause they have this porta bello mushroom i love and a nice garden patio to eat in outside (it’s so lovely it’s even worth giving the mosquitos a meal while I eat). My grandpa and his girlfriend came and I told Tiana that he lives in Italy during the winter and he invited us and now Tiana is set on going for her birthday which honestly I’m not against at all. My mom gave me a gold charm bracelet with the year I graduated engraved on it when I graduated but mine broke so she got it fixed and engraved my name on the back and Clara got a matching one which is really sweet.
It’s my baby sister at prom. She’s the one in red. I did not look that good at prom but my dress was gorgeous and I still adore.
My cousin and my uncle came to visit from Oklahoma (I see them once every 5+ years). We all met in Mystic, CT where my grandpa has his boat and I had the best poached eggs of my life at the Mystic Diner.
We were waiting for his bus and talking about world evils and being very refreshed by our greys papayas drinks (me, coconut champagne and him, papaya)
Honestly, truly all I wanted for Christmas was a white Christmas + I got it and so much more. This is my cute family home.
