these photos were taken in my beloved 'zooey' dress. i should have taken a photograph of this dress before i took the thread and needle to it. i brought the hem up about eight inches, took the waist in and removed the shoulder pads. i fell in love with the end result and knew it had to be the dress i wore to see 'she & him'. (recap to come. zooey deserves an entire post.)
and, yes, my friends, i realize that my legs are covered in dirt. embarrassing yes, but for shots like these at the top of mt. nateva i had to traverse some dirt roads.
i have to admit that today was a bit difficult. we left maine early monday morning and left behind a community of people filled with positive energy and so much happiness. transitioning back into real life has been harder than i would have imagined. but as our yogi at nateva once said 'treat yourself with kindness. treat others with kindness.' i am trying to keep that mantra alive this week as i fall back into my normal routine.
