The hardest part about coming back from a lovely vacation is returning to one’s routine. There’s the inevitable last week I was doing such and such thinking and the sadness that accompanies that. And when the weather decides to drop a tiny amount of snow, just enough to make everything pretty for a second before turning brown, it can be especially difficult. To combat these blues, I focused on putting my new things in their new places and organizing my planner. I’m thinking about what changes I want to make to my apartment this year (and by changes I really mean purchases). And, of course, I traipsed, in the snow-ish weather, across the avenues to get my eyebrows done.
