So, it was a marvelous day (I happily read while he slumbered away to the rowdy background sounds of singing, dancing and improv-ing teens).
I just have to add a giddy little note here, calling your attention to the boots appearing in the top right corner of the above photo. Those are my new boots. I snagged them yesterday on our way back from lunch. Possibly the greatest steal this bargain-hunter has ever lassoed, these Jeffrey Campbell over-the-knee babies originally retailed for $210, but were on sale for $29.99. Eighty-five percent off, people. That was a total wear-it-out-of-the-store-beaming-with-shopper's-high kind of moment. I don't care if it's officially Spring now and I should be shopping for sandals! Next photo, a detail (because I'm still so darn excited!!!):
