For no good reason, really…


I’m all dressed up with no place to go…Green eyeliner and everything! Even a matching belt/shoe combo. I managed to do some gardening in this getup, as it was a very comfortable 90 degrees today…

Dress: F21
Necklace: Kendra Scott (sample sale)

Today I was on pins and needles waiting to hear from my very capable broker who has been working on finding me a space to lease here in Austin. Trophy Boutique needs a home before I can really begin to make my transition, and the thought of buying a bunch of clothes before I know what my space looks like makes me feel nauseous. I have my first choice of locales picked out and of course it’s not actually for rent, but my broker is “95% sure” he’ll make a deal to lease from the owner in the very near future. He said the inside is even better than I think, and he’s gonna try to get the keys for us to look around inside soon. I’m not going to say much else in fear of the jinx I don’t actually believe in (okay maybe a little bit) but I am getting pretty excited. And nervous. And really can’t believe it’s becoming so REAL finally.

So soon I will really start to plug this here blog and make my plans public….I wish these little seeds of doubt would stop creeping in, but I think that must be healthy. Imagining worst-case scenarios has always been a real talent of mine, and sometimes it actually makes things less stressful for me, if that makes sense. If I can imagine the worst happening, it becomes less scary to deal with, because I can get myself used to pretty much anything. I mean, I spent the entirety of my 8th grade winter in Maine without a sewage system! I can handle some stress.
