Photos by Drew
So I know it’s only January, and that no matter how many spring collections or warm weather inspiration pictures I post it won’t really be spring for a while now. I know that in a lot of places it’s still snowing (my dad got stranded in Ireland for a day or two this week because the Newark airport was shut down due to snow) and that only a few weeks ago here we were all iced inside our homes in a freak Atlanta snowstorm. But all of that was hard to remember this weekend when the sun was out and the temperature might have hit 70. It was good. Drew’s friend was in town from Vermont so he hung out with him and I spent lots of time with Jamie yesterday, taking some photos that we’ll show you later. Last night we went to Antico and listened to David Bowie records and thought about going to the Clermont, but stayed in and play around with funny iPhone apps instead.
Today was even warmer. It was so nice out that I ditched the tights and tried out a warm weather outfit that’s sort of inspired by all those Australian and New Zealand collections I keep posting. After dropping Drew’s friend off at the airport Drew and I went back out to Serenbe to walk around in a good quiet southern farm setting, and it was peaceful and beautiful. Other things I did this weekend: baked an apple pie (it was ok), made some cinnamon rolls from scratch (they turned out better), ran outside without having to wear a jacket and gloves, got a good start on a book about southern literature history (and found that I have a lot of authors to catch up on), talked a little about future projects with Jamie, and ate an amazing all-vegetable meal cooked by Drew. Sorry for all the warm weather bragging if you’re stuck in the snow somewhere up north. If it makes you feel any better it’s going to get cooler and rain here just about all week and soon enough the tights and winter coats will be back out. But I’ll try not to think about that until tomorrow.
