grafton street.

it is storming. the rain is pounding against the windows in our little sun room. i have dido serenading me in the background, and i'm putting together my travel journal for europe. i booked a hotel for our first night in munich (thanks to all of your comments that freaked me out, but really needed. thank you!), and i feel great. i feel very bad for husband who is out in this mess...hopefully he is breaking for lunch right about now so he doesn't get drenched.
i'm enjoying my alone time right now. what am i saying, i always enjoy my alone time. but for some reason the past few days have been so good and necessary for me. i really like shopping alone. i loved going to the bookstore by myself the other day. i sipped hot chocolate (it was raining outside and freezing in there... yes i know i live in FL), and read through europe books at a nice little table. i've always been independent, so i guess i just appreciate the little moments where i can just hang out with myself.
song of the day: grafton street by dido. please download it, find it online to listen to, something. enjoy. you will thank me.
only two more days to enter yourself into the just-cook-already giveaway. don't miss out.
{the biggest thunder i have ever heard just crashed right above my apartment. it scared me so bad that i peed a little bit. awesome}
