Advancing Backwards

I once heard that in the days of the Revolutionary War, when the patriot army was loosing, that George Washionton said they were not retreating, they were simply advancing backwards. Well, I'd like to find some way to adopt that saying for my NaNoWriMo experience this year. It was rather awful - I only got halfway.

The strange thing is - I don't mind. In the past year I have written a first draft of Audra, and edited it to the third draft. I think I deserved a break! And I had a great month even without NaNoWriMo. I got to talk with my best friend/unofficially adopted sister, Heather, a lot this past month, which was really nice, and then she got to come for Thanksgiving, which was a blast!

And speaking of Heather, here is a re-creation of the outfit I wore that day to pick her up. I've decided that I'd like to keep a sort of picture-diary of my favorite outfits to keep the memories, since at some point the clothes will wear out.

Shirt - Thrifted (it's actually maternity!)
Jeans - So..
Ballet Flats - Kohls
Necklace - Vintage

  1. Hello dearest! Sven here. I just really want to go shopping with you. Are you an insane bargain shopper like me (and every female on my mother's side of the family)? That is all. I love you. Speak soon. TTFN.
