These photos are from Chris's birthday on Sunday. We had big plans to get up early, hit the flea market in Psyri, visit the Acropolis, then explore some more neighborhoods and find someplace amazing for dinner. Unfortunately, my body had other plans - I woke up horribly nauseous at five in the morning. Blech. After a rather, ahem, eventful hour, we went back to bed and decided to sleep a bit later and see if things improved. I woke up feeling, if not fully recovered, at least much better, and we were still able to salvage at least our Acropolis plans. I pulled out my old graduate school post-all-nighter trick of dressing better than I felt, and my silk top and wide leg pants offered the added bonus of feeling rather like classy pajamas. We didn't quite get to have the birthday celebration I'd hoped for, but it certainly beat being stuck in bed.
On an entirely unrelated subject, I've recently been in touch with a few friends from college via Twitter. This isn't all that noteworthy in and of itself (although they rock, and it's fun to hear from them more often), but it is the first I've really told anyone I know 'in real life'* about my blog. I haven't brought it up directly - it seems such a strange thing to explain to someone who isn't already a style blogger or blog-reader, particularly unsolicited - but I imagine at least a few old friends have clicked my links and seen this (kind of) strange thing I'm doing now. After a few months of regular blogging, it's funny the things that will make you just a wee bit self-conscious again.
*Chris and S. being the notable exceptions who prove the rule.
