New Town, New Home, Old Friends Reconnect

Having freshly arrived and moved into our new apartment in Edmond, Oklahoma just over a week ago, I cannot gush too much about how much I love it here. 
1. The apartment is lovely. 
2. One Super Target, Three Starbucks, Two Parks, and lots of time with Mom and Dad. Supreme happiness. 
3. A sister-in-law who likes to walk in the evenings. 
4. Connecting with members of our new church over a beautiful, delicious three course lunch (at the hospitality of a phenomenal and inspiring hostess)
5. Reconnecting with old acquaintances. (Cannot overstate how wonderful that is.)
In the midst of employment applications, interviews, unpacking, and getting library cards (I have reconnected with Anna Karenina at last), I was honored with coffee and conversation time with an old friend so dear to my heart. And, wouldn't you know, we realized a mutual affection for Anthropologie's apron collection. 
Found this lovely apron at Anthropologie forever ago and have been stalking it thus ever since. 

And, there is an adorable matching apron for a little one as well. As Kathleen Kelly would say, "How cute is that?"
Enjoying some delightfully witty Wodehouse time in Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit...
"As I sat in the bath-tub, soaping a meditative foot and singing, if I remember correctly, 'Pale Hands I Loved Beside the Shalimar', it would be deceiving my public to say that I was feeling boomps-a-daisy." 
You must know that a book is going to be good when it starts that way.
