is a load of hogwash in my opinion. I'm too practical and unromantic to think that. Fate shmate. What I do think, though, is that those things that happen to us that are out of our control open up unexpected opportunities for us. There's so much potential in how we react to unforeseen events. So I spent one day wallowing (wallowing is best, I found, when paired with a pitcher of Inversion and an insanely good Reuben at Deschutes Brewery) in the news about our apartment going on the market, and then Barry and I got to work. We've been looking for a new place to call home and talking about things that we probably should have been talking about for a while now. Nothing is settled, we don't know when we'll have to move or where we'll be going, but now I'm feeling far less shaken about having to move than I felt when we first heard the news.
While we've got some big fish to fry right now, I keep thinking about the most ridiculous thing: a week before we found out about our apartment going on the market, I'd ordered a roll of address labels for my sulu-design shipments. A thousand of 'em. All with our current address. What the heck am I going to do with a thousand incorrect address labels once we move? In the interest of using up as many of those bad boys as I can before the address is no longer valid, and in the interest of packing as few things as possible, I'm doing a little clearance of some of my summer earring designs. Instead of listing them in my etsy shop, I'm going to post photos here and offer these styles at $12 a pair. If you're interested in anything you see, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org (don't leave a comment about them - I don't e-mails from blogger about comments most of the time). I'll e-mail a paypal invoice to you and send the earrings off at the end of the week with no shipping charge. I'm staring with mother of pearl. More to come later this week.
