Wow, November already...

It's been a busy few weeks. Work has been frustrating and totally crazy at times, but at least creatively fulfilling in some form or another. The Fall collection has been well received and I have a few shoes that are being shown to editors for possible magazine placement, which is exciting.

I haven't been able to get to yoga as often as I'd like, but when I do go, it's SO fulfilling. I guess in place of that I've had a bit of a busy social calendar. Went to Galapagos performance space (now right around the corner from my place, how could I NOT go?) last Thursday for a Salon event which was a lot of fun, but of course it was a Thursday night so I took it easy with the drinks and still felt it the next morning... I'm getting older all the time. My dad and stepmom stopped by and stayed overnight on Friday on their way down to Florida, and made us dinner which was a welcome gesture after a nutty day at work.

Then Saturday I spent all day cooking for the dinner party I threw for Darren's birthday. I never expected us to get the amazing response we did, so we ended up with 9 guests (11 including us) which meant I had to run to Crate & Barrel on the way home from work one day to get another place setting as we only had 10 of everything. WIth six seated at the table, three at the kitchen counter and two in the living room, it was a bit crowded, but it worked out as there were a couple of infants in attendance in addition to all of the lovely and amazing friends who showed up. It was really nice to see everyone and I have to say the dinner was delicious. Sunday I chilled out and went to yoga in the afternoon before meeting up with Darren to see "W." (for which there are no words).

Tomorrow is the election of the century, which is alternately exciting and terrifying. I have no idea how long the lines will be; if they're 5 hours long for early voting in the middle of the country, who knows what time I'll actually get to work tomorrow. No matter; shoes can wait. Obama needs my time tomorrow and that's all that matters.

(In case you didn't know, I'm voting Obama tomorrow. GoooooooooooBAMA!!!)
