This time around...

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Friends, life is about to get crazy.  I have another big move coming up right around the corner and let me tell you, it's got me stressing.  Yes, I will be moving to Las Vegas to be a teacher for kids with autism!  Wheeeee!  

For real though, even though this move is just across the country, it's WAAAAAY more stressful than it was to move to Germany.  I think because when I moved overseas, I knew I'd be living with Soldier Boy and that I had a house already set up and furnished and that my job would come eventually, things were much more laid back than they are now.

This time around, SB and I will be living in the same apartment complex, but not apartment (I've got a weird independence thing going on... just want my own space for a bit...  you know?).  The only furniture I own is a table and chairs, an end table, and two desks, so I'll have to furnish the whole place.  Also, I have a classroom to set up and lesson plans to put together, which is especially difficult since I don't know anything about my future students or curriculum.  Plus, I'm still working about 35 hours a week. 

Can you say stressed? 

But, in the midst of all this stress, I've still been trying to take some time to wander aimlessly, and it's paid off.  I found a teepee and I think it's kind of an awesome background to use to show off my handmade huipil from Kukul Boutik!  I found Kukul on Instagram and immediately fell in love with their handmade huipils.  I cannot get over how much time (and patience) it would take to embroider this top!  I just love the colours and the way they play off of the sky and flowers in these snaps.  I am most definitely going to be wearing this huipil for my first Christmas in the desert!   I topped the look off with a ton of fair trade jewelry from my GlobeIn subscription box (snack $10 off a subscription there with code DAILYSAVANT)!
