Friends, life is about to get crazy. I have another big move coming up right around the corner and let me tell you, it's got me stressing. Yes, I will be moving to Las Vegas to be a teacher for kids with autism! Wheeeee!
For real though, even though this move is just across the country, it's WAAAAAY more stressful than it was to move to Germany. I think because when I moved overseas, I knew I'd be living with Soldier Boy and that I had a house already set up and furnished and that my job would come eventually, things were much more laid back than they are now.
This time around, SB and I will be living in the same apartment complex, but not apartment (I've got a weird independence thing going on... just want my own space for a bit... you know?). The only furniture I own is a table and chairs, an end table, and two desks, so I'll have to furnish the whole place. Also, I have a classroom to set up and lesson plans to put together, which is especially difficult since I don't know anything about my future students or curriculum. Plus, I'm still working about 35 hours a week.
Can you say stressed?
But, in the midst of all this stress, I've still been trying to take some time to wander aimlessly, and it's paid off. I found a teepee and I think it's kind of an awesome background to use to show off my handmade huipil from Kukul Boutik! I found Kukul on Instagram and immediately fell in love with their handmade huipils. I cannot get over how much time (and patience) it would take to embroider this top! I just love the colours and the way they play off of the sky and flowers in these snaps. I am most definitely going to be wearing this huipil for my first Christmas in the desert! I topped the look off with a ton of fair trade jewelry from my GlobeIn subscription box (snack $10 off a subscription there with code DAILYSAVANT)!
