When you were younger, did your parents ever send you away for the summer?  What was the experience like?
Brought to you by the movie Georgia Rule.

when i was 15 i went to europe for 5 1/2 weeks with my step-grandmother and brother. we flew from seattle to madrid, stayed in salamanca and took a train to el ferrol. next we flew to london, took a hover craft across the english channel, spent time in france, belguim, amsterdam, germany, austria, switzerland and italy. i felt so lucky. i met beautiful people, got to hang out with my brother, got to see so many things. i certainly felt worldly and a little amazing when i returned. starting 10th grade that fall had seemed like such a big deal before the trip. but upon returning i just felt different. tom robbins said in jitterbug perfume, "perhaps the most terrible (or wonderful) thing that can happen to an imaginative youth, aside from the curse (or blessing) of imagination itself is to be exposed without preparation to the life outside of his or her own sphere- the sudden revelation that there is a there out there." that's what it felt like for me and it was wonderful.

today we went to santa cruz and ate at cafe la vie and got dessert from black china bakery. i wore a tee from threadless, light blue with a puzzle block heart and a norma kamali striped shrug.

eliot kept on saying happy birthday to me today and he once said happy mother's day to daddy. pretty cute!

What was your version of teenage rebellion? 
Brought to you by the movie Georgia Rule.

dressing like a semi goth fairy. sneaking around with the boyfriend my parents had forbidden me to have contact with.
i had some parties while my parents were out of town. boys slept over, the usual trouble. but i was a virgin until i was 20, i never did drugs, and i didn't get sick drunk until my 21st birthday. so take that, typical teenage rebellion! i did however place tons of blame on my dear friend janah, who was always getting into more trouble then i ever thought about. she was an easy target. but also a super fun instigator.

clothing! today i wore my owl skinny jeans, michael stars black bell sleeved top, one of my heartshapedsky necklaces and my glitter pink flats. yesterday i wore my birdie thermal that has black birds and red hearts on it with a black tee over it and a red jacket with tiny white hearts on it. thursday we stayed home. wednesday i wore my generra mini dress and brown born clogs, love this one!
