I have always wanted to go for a hot air balloon ride. I went up in the tethered one at Downtown Disney last year, but I want to go on a real ride in one. One of my dreams is to take a hot air balloon ride over all the pretty foliage in the fall. That would be pretty amazing. Too bad it's really expensive. Maybe someday, though!
This spot is still my lucky spot to take pictures. I always get good shots here, and it may very well be one of my favorite places ever. I love lighthouses! And this is definitely one of my favorite dresses that I own. I haven't worn it too much, but coincidentally, the one other time that I wore it was at this same place with my balloon bouquet! I need to start wearing this more, because it's just too amazing to not wear. It's just hard for me to go strapless with my bras, and I don't want my bra straps showing through the sheer part of the dress. I fixed that this time by layering this basic v-neck over it!
I really love remixing clothes. It's so fun and sometimes challenging to wear something in a variety of ways. It'd be so cool if you could follow a vintage or thrifted item through its entire life just to see how many different kinds of people wore it and all the different ways they styled it. Imagine following a dress from the 40s that made it all the way to today! It would make for a very interesting and fascinating project, though I'm not sure how possible it would be. I feel like if it were planned, it wouldn't be as organic and it would lose some of its magic.
I've started re-reading The Giver. I read an article about movies based on books that are coming out this year and was excited to see that The Giver is one of them! It's really pretty heavy for a young adult/children's novel. I can't wait to finish it and refresh my memory of it all. It'll be interesting to read as an adult now since I've only read it once when I was around 12. I want reread a lot of the books I read as a preteen/teenager. I've read so many good books and I want to experience them all again!
