Dear Jen

How's Korea? Superfun? Delicious and pretty and exciting and calming and refreshing and exhausting and AMAZING? Yeah, I bet it is. Can't wait for that postcard!

Jeff and I just got back from a bike ride - we rode down to the Loop (which is like Austin wrought tiny (at least, that's how I think of it) and plunked in the middle of godforsaken St. Louis) which is like a mile from our house. And we ate Subway and then we bought two used movies - Pirates of the Caribbean II and some Star Trek movie. And I got the latest issue of Bitch magazine. And then we rode home (except I stopped at the grocery store and bought milk and bagels, if you wanna be real specific about it).

And yeah that's nice and all but what does it have to do with a style blog? I'LL TELL YOU: I did it all in a skirt. Now, I've figured out how to walk in a skirt. And sit in a skirt (sometimes even on the floor!). But biking in a skirt? Totally new territory. But OMG SO DO-ABLE! This excites me because someday soon I hope to start biking to work (or at least, to the train station), and I was already mourning the loss of skirt-dom. But now I don't have to!

The whole skirt mentality really gets me, actually. I'm up to 6 or 7 days a week (if I'm not wearing a skirt, then I'm probably in my Levi's 518's or maaayyyyyybe these old grey pants I've had for forty-eleven years), and it's really sort of a lifestyle. Don't laugh at me - I'm serious! Skirts - to me - feel flirty and feminine and pretty and practical. What's not to love?

My only concern is that I'll be mistaken for a Duggar. No, really. :-P

Don't forget to come back to meeeee!!! ( countrryyyyyyy anyway)
