austerity measures

I've got a pretty serious travel bug. And along it's sister ailments, spring and cabin fever, the travel bug is nothing to scoff at. It afflicts large swaths of the privileged first world population every day.

I've got my heart set on Sweden for Midsommar and now I've just got to raise the capital. And that's why I'm working on a plan - we won't call it a budget because though I can be quite frugal, I haven't the stomach for budgets, but there will be cutbacks including a temporary yarnfast and diy manicures. 

This may or may not have all been inspired by the Kristen Bell video that's been making its way around the interwebs. It's certainly good for a laugh but it also made me wonder when's the last time I was anywhere near that happy. Don't get me wrong I'm pretty happy - certainly happier than I was for most of my twenties. But, I couldn't help but crave that sort of happiness that may only be found in the delivery of sloth to my doorstep by Dax Shepard... Midsommar in Sweden it is.


  1. I want to go to Sweden with you! Sounds like so fun!

  2. oh my gosh, yes! mags, you have got to go! the only reason i would tell you otherwise would be for you to wait until i have the funds to go with you. who knows how long that will take so you go and have a wonderful time dancing around the may pole with a wreath of flowers in your hair under the midnight twilight sky. it was my favorite part of my entire time in sverige.
