home again, home again

hi! as i mentioned, i'm coming back to my beloved sadiedeluxe - as it makes me feel more authentic and more inspired in my creative self. it's kind of like moving back into an old bedroom - i'll probably be making a few aesthetic changes over the next little while, and i brought some old stuff (my lost boys + lovers posts) along with me. ahhhhh. now everything is here. 

i figured i'd start the homecoming off by re-posting one of my first-ever posts on this blog in 2008. 

thanks for coming back with me.

footnotes: i love these lists. currently i still have a bouncy child, but he rarely bounces into my face anymore, as he's not on my lap all the time. i hate to admit it, but i've gotten rusty on the guitar and it's time to start practicing again. in 2008 i wrote some adorable love songs and it was really really fun.  i still have lots of cute high-heels that i swear i will wear one day. i still love earl grey tea. i still fantasize about solo grocery shopping.

i miss the baby forehead.
