Leaving on a Road Trip

Good Morning Tuesday!
Good Morning YOU!

I've two things to say before I slip into my flippity flops and don my biggest pair of shades and they are thus:

1. YOU have made me feel so great this last week, what with all your short-hair-love and downright flattery. You KNOW how to make a gal feel amazing and I think you might be responsible for the extra strutting I did all weekend and the sly brush-your-hair-out-of-your-eyes "oh this ol' hair do?" I may have pulled more than twice. I really adore you. That's what this comes down to.

2. I'm heading out of town for the week (Monday you ask? Yeah, never happened) and into the greater San Francisco area of California, driving out in my faithful little Civic with a huge box of chopped veggies and plans for a chai latté before I even hit the freeway. I've got a few appointments with various doctors but I'll be staying with one of my bestie gals which means hysterical laughter, very little sleep, and the eye rolls of her man (whom I love like crazy too) at our no-doubt-crazed antics. I can't help it. We get together and it's like a whole room of children cracked out on sugar. All big eyes and no control over the volume of our voices. Except it's just the two of us. And we're both no longer even in our twenties.
BRING ON THE GOOD TIMES!

That said, I don't know if I'll have time or breath to update this bloggy-o later in the week BUT no matter what I'll be back next Monday with photos galore and plans to [finally] show you a few pieces from that new painting series I've been hinting at!

Lovey Dove,
- Umber

If ever you're feeling lost or hungry for a great meal and an all consuming embrace - be sure to stop by my mom's place.

There'll be a warm welcome and a cold cocktail waiting for you.

You're so cute ;-) You go girl and have yourself a great time. We will be here when you get back. Now go on to laughter, lolest. Laughter is great medicine.

Have a great trip!

I'm convinced that a solitary road trip is one of the greatet things EVER, especially when there is so much laughter and love waiting for you when you get to wherever you are going.

Drive safe! :)

Loving the new do, I've been a shorty for the last ten years, (too lazy to be bohered drying it!)

Just found your blog and been reading through it, you are a remarkable and inspiring woman.
