Seeing the Summer Light

The babiest of my two baby sisters is leaving for the Netherlands today. She’ll be touring and traveling and singing with her college choir, smelling pretty Dutch tulips and eating delicious Dutch food and {most likely} documenting her Dutch adventures on her iPhone. Are we sure that modern technology hasn’t invented a shrinking potion? Like the one from Alice in Wonderland? I sure wouldn’t mind traveling through Amsterdam in Sophie’s purse, alongside her wallet and reading glasses. A unique mode of travel, but a mode of travel nevertheless. So let’s get on that shrinking potion, technology. Hop to it!

{Like the rabbit…in Alice in Wonderland…I don’t blame you if you missed it. It’s Tuesday, after all.}

Of course, while the baby sister is skipping her way down the streets of Amsterdam, Darebear and I will be here in Minneapolis, hopefully skipping our way to the end of the semester (which is easier to do than you would think, in these heels from Lulu*s). Our tickets to the Twins baseball game that we decided we deserve to attend after the busiest semester of my graduate school experience came in the mail yesterday…along with our tickets to go see The Music Man at the Guthrie {we deserved those too…I guess… 😉 }, so there’s light at the end of the academic tunnel! A few weeks from now, I’ll be reading a scoreboard rather than the history of nineteenth-century Russia. CAN I GET AN AMEN.

Hope you have a great rest of your day! Shop this look below!

      Same! I’m practically drooling over my phone whenever I see a picture of Dutch stroopwafels. 😛 Italy would be a dream!

    If you find the shrinking potion, let a girl know!! I can think of SO Many uses for that, not limited to being a stowaway on many vacations…I could use it to hide when the kids are fighting, I could use it to hide when everyone at work needs something at once, I could use it when I just feel like sneaking around..I could go on (I won’t). Point being, please let me know when you have discovered it 🙂

      Haha this is brilliant! Maybe I’ll write a letter to the R&D Department at the U of MN…put those researching students to work! It’d be for a good cause, after all… 😉
