Again, I am so sorry for the lack of posts! I have been so busy preparing for my trip to China, Hong Kong and Macau that I have barely had time to do anything else, aside from summer gym *shudder*. Yes summer gym - three weeks which are supposed to be equivalent of one year of gym, that means 5.5 hours a day of kickball and running around a track.
I have pretty much finished packing although I am not leaving until Sunday, so I have been trying to find other things to do to break up my constant research. This has included reading blogs and magazines and making french macaroons - SO FUN!
ALMOND MACAROONS WITH BUTTERCREAM FILLING
Recipe from "Gourmet Today" cookbook.
Here are some other pictures that have taken over the last couple months..
I am not sure why but this house fascinates me. I love how only the front is painted greenish, that the porch is covered in fake grass and that they are using a stump as a table. It kind of reminds me of making fairy houses as a child.
One of the men on the horses who allowed us to take photos for the photoshoot. I love how affectionately he is looking at his horse, there is something about people who truly love their animals that always touches me.
The family farm. Tucked away in the Southern corner of Virginia, this is one of my favorite places to escape to during the summer in order to do nothing but read, and eat way too much homemade Southern food. (My family is ALL Texan!)
Feeling nostalgic about my trip to Japan last summer, but also getting so excited for the new adventures I will have in China.
Sorry for the entirely un-fashion related post! I will probably try to do a outfit post this week before I go, if not look forward to my first post from China!
