well look who decided to show up....

is this thing on?
it's been so long i feel as though i should re-introduce myself.
i'm angie {or angelina, as my friends call me} who would have guessed that a short break from the computer would lead to this mini-sabbatical i've been on? {as i'm calling it now} 

it's been so long since i've seen you, how do i look?
since my last post i've travelled to omaha nebrask, chicago illinois, and grand rapids michigan, rung in the new year, let my hair grow {and no, i don't want to talk about it. it's awkward.} gotten dreadfully behind on correspondence {email, snailmail and swappy thank-yous} and returned home again. 

i would love to recount all my wonderful holiday stories for you, but i don't think i could do them any justice. it was great to be surrounded by family and friends again. and this year, inspite of my usually rather weepy good-byes, i surprised myself by actually looking forward to coming home. i adore the people in my life {who all seem to be so far away!} but there really is nothing like sleeping in your own bed {even if husband left his pillow in chicago and yours in omaha!} and of course, the kitties were thrilled to see us {not that you can tell from these photos, which are the best i could get...}
 {aria is less than thrilled with my attempts at cuddling}

{and cache is just annoyed. and huge!}

but enough about me, how are you! what have you been up to? i can't wait come around and say hi!


  1. So glad you are back! I was checking for you everyday!

  2. welcome back!! you are too stinking cute! (and so are your kitties). i love that cowl!!

  3. welcome back dear! Your hair is actually fabulous:)
    Sounds like you did as much traveling as me!
    Hope you are doing well!

  4. well hello there!! it is good to see you back in blogland, and i remember when my hair was that in-between length and i hated it. but yours looks so cute! you know what else is cute? your kitties! just adorable.

  5. ooo i'm glad you came back! i just scrolled through some of your archives + am looking forward to new posts!

    i am constantly deliberating about growing my hair out - growing out a pixie is just the worst!

  6. hello pretty lady! love the cowl, and the kitties are as cute as ever!!

  7. WELCOME BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  8. I love your top and cowl!! so pretty :)

  9. Welcome back! I was wondering until I saw that your Etsy store said you were on vacation. Hope you had an AMAZING time.

    Just trying to enjoy the new year over here. Hope you enjoyed Illinois.

  10. cute scarf! i actually need one of those!

  11. welcome back to the blogosphere! growing out short hair (intentionally or not) is the worst - i always end up with a baby mullet. don't let it happen to you.

  12. Angie, it's so good to have you back! And you look just adorable (as always -- extra point for including cute cats in the photos). I'm getting back into the swing of things with school, but I seriously need more time in my days! Sigh...

  13. I wondered where you had gone! Since you commented about the music on my blog (lovelygodey) I thought I would let you know that The Civil Wars are coming out with their CD in February on Amazon. Totally excited about it!

    And I love your green cowl. It's my fav. color. :)


  14. just found your lovely blog and i'm so happy to follow along on your adventures! adorable cowl, lovely haircuit and precious kitties! what's not to love? and i totally agree, there's nothing sweeter than sleeping in your own bed. not even the most plush hotel in the world can live up to well-loved sheets and pillows:) happy tuesday!

  15. Great post!
    I didn't know that about you!
    Thanks for sharing :D


  16. Welcome back. Your hair looks great.
