she's almost here*
sus & me, last november
She's on an airplane as I write this. London to Los Angeles. She's probably snuggled up holding her iPod with eyes closed and imagining her first time in sunny California (just a few more hours...). How fun that I get to be the one to drive down the coast and watch her gasp at the palm trees and beaches. She's burned a bunch of CD's so we can have our own little karaoke fest with windows rolled down and arms flailing out the windows. It's been almost a year since I've seen her lovely face.
Her first few days in my home will be about rest, rest and more rest....trying our best to get rid of that jet lag naturally. I am fully equipped to pamper her salon style. This weekend we head back to Los Angeles to hang with Swirly and Frida. In between a few photo shoots I'm doing for Swirly, we'll all be soaked in inspiration, laughter and love. I will then scoop up Sus & Frida to head back my way and snuggle back into my home until next Thursday. Seriously...it all feels so surreal.
Of course Boho Boy is jazzed to have a house full of girlies. Especially those that are as intelligent, sparkly and rockin' as these betties are. He left for work this morning with a huge smile on his face. Sus has become very special to him as well.
I have plans for picnics on the beach, moonlit walks, bonfires and perhaps some messy creative~ness here and there. This is all perfect timing, of course...because I've been living far too deep into my head the last few days. I am pretty certain that hanging with a brit and a kiwi will pull me out and leave me dancing!
Perhaps we'll post some goodies while they're here.
