My family held Thanksgiving this past weekend, and it was really wonderful. Also, this was the first time I intentially wore lolita around my family! Although, a very, very toned down coord, but it was something.
I am wearing F+F’s Puck’s Prank OP and a (gasp) normie blouse I got some somewhere. Plain tights and bow flats. The petticoat is one I got for cheap from Aliexpress with the intention of sewing two together to make a super fluffy one. Actually, this petticoat is fairly decent.
Wearing this dress, I was reminded of how much I love this dumb OP that isn’t really an OP. I am so tempted to go buy the other colorway of it. But no, I am saving my money to move/buy brand/not starve to death.
Speaking of food…
I like taking pictures of food.
Most years, my family will go around the table and talk about the things we are thankful for, but we forgot to do this, twice. I am thankful for a lot of things. I am thankful for my Mom (even if she drives me nuts) and my brother and sister-in-law, and my boyfriend. Also thankful for my friends I’ve met over the years in Grad School and College, and my online friends, and the people in my comm. Very thankful for some of the people in my lab (very strongly the opposite of thankful for other people though). I am also very thankful for cats. All cats. My cats, your cats, my friends cats, my boyfriend’s cat, every cat ever.
It’s been a stressful year for various reasons, but I finally got to be active in a comm and that makes me happy, so I am glad I got to do that.
