The morning started off with a hurried frenzy through Wilmington's tiny airport (turns out my flight was at 7 not 7:30... Eeps!) but the first (short) leg of the trip is over. Now I'm relaxing in foggy Philadelphia with a hot latte and free wifi for my blogging pleasure. Looking forward to the adventures that lie ahead with giddy anticipation... A new landscape with an old friend is hard to beat.

[Also, if anyone knows how to convert DVDs to iPad format I would greatly appreciate your help! It could be a very long trip without something for my viewing pleasure...]

Coffee is good, spiked coffee is even better. (Jk... kind of... not really.) I have been experimenting with my barista skills, and I've just about nailed it. Current Favorite? 1 part espresso, 1 part Baileys Irish Cream, 1 part Frangelico with Godiva caramel and white chocolate infused steamed milk. Per.fec.tion.

I'm clearly not the only one who thinks about such things when globe-trotting, because my search has yielded countless results. You can find celebrities and fashion icons on both ends of the spectrum: from slippers to stilettos, I've seen it all. As the 1 week countdown for departure begins, I've started brainstorming. Here are a few ideas that are inspiring my sartorial selections, but I'll give you one hint, there's no way you're getting this butt in jeans for 18 hours* H to the N.

1. Cropped Pants
2. Lightweight utility jacket
I'm not going to lie, I wear this thing year round. Pants, shorts, jeans, dresses... it goes with everything. As it gets cooler I like to layer it over a hoodie for a downtown, metropolitan vibe. Mine is from Gap, but I've spotted similar versions at J. Crew and Urban Outfitters recently.
3. Scarves (lightweight)
4. Cognac leather accents
The warm, supple shade lends an air of distinction (think prep-school charm) & while it may be too soon for riding boots, a leather handbag is perfect year-round.
What are you wearing to beat the heat but still look chic?

Hey, it's ok...
...if you're operating version of iTunes is the current version... divided by 2. Would you like to upgrade now? Nothankyou.
...if you feel instantly cooler ordering it "rocks, splash of water." Even if it is Firefly or Malibu.
...to start "packing" (slash not putting away clean laundry) precisely 12 days before your departure date.

As if a weekend of celebrations was not enough, I woke up yesterday morning and booked my flight to Hawaii! I am so excited to go visit my friend Kelsey & see what her Lilo life is all about! AND I leave in 2 weeks! I'm elated. When I was doing my devotional this morning I read this verse...

Until we meet again...
Hey! It's ok...
... to be a total 6-year-old when it comes to matters of copycats (hate em) and birthdays (love em)
... if you cannot decide what scares you more: wrinkles or Botox
... if it's not a birthday without a new dress!

Then I got this email. Covered under warranty? I'm so happy I could cry. Thank you, Nikon. I could just kiss you.
p.s. That's why all pics in soliloquy-land have been via iPhone. But don't worry, as soon as this shutterbug gets her baby back it will be photo overload. Seriously, your computer might have a seizure trying to load the page. :)
