a recap AND a new autumn header

  1. I'm home (Seattle)! And missing old home (Santa Barbara).
  2. It's Autumn. And so I have a new header. Check it.

1. love the boots! i found some great ones yesterday at payless, and thanks to my mom too, i'm now a proud new owner.
2. amen about sisters.
3. i know exactly what you mean about high school and insecurity. gah. i went to the powderpuff football game last night with my little sister and it was crazy how the dumb little high schoolers could make me question the awesome confidence i've gotten even more of since i've been out of that place. so weird.
4. also love the header. so autumnal.
