Tuesday morning, in an attempt to relieve myself of the traffic, avoid the inevitable heavy hustle and bustle of traveling this time of year, I took the train back down to my parent's home in Baltimore, to celebrate Thanksgiving with my family and visit some friends. When traveling, I like to be comfortable, however, not at the expense of elegance or personal style; for this trip, I selected a large, warm, wool sweater dress by Cynthia Rowley, and some thick black sweater tights, paired with brown and black-toed leather boots. To complement the pale grayish cream of the sweater, I chose clear lucite accessories: my cascading waterfall lucite necklace, an oblong lucite bangle, and large convex lucite earrings.
It is a pleasure to be home, to relax and be lax, sleep in, eat too much, drink just enough wine. It is different this year: my sister, her husband, and the new beautiful baby are not able to join us in person around the table. She is just too young to travel, especially when also considering a rambunctiously adorable labradoodle puppy, Siouxsie. I miss them, but wish them a comfortable and happy Thanksgiving meal this evening, in their warm, cozy home. The filmmaker joined his best friend and band mate up in Rhode Island for the week, staying at the picturesque home in Newport, also surrounded by friends and loving souls. I am so glad and so thankful to be surrounded by such incredible people, to love and be loved.
