Super Pretty Funny {numero 7}

It has been rather rainy this week, during which I had some great news and some hard news. I won’t be going home for Christmas this year, which is a bit difficult because a) I will miss my family to bits and b) it is the one time of year I get fully behind American excess. But I know it will be wonderful none-the-less and more on that to come.

In other news (drumroll please) I might be going to South Africa!! I have always wanted to go and especially after D’s good friends from there visited Europe last year. In a moment of pre-emptive overexcitement I already bought a guidebook and cracked as soon as I saw pictures of “the big five” (zebras, giraffes, lions, rhinos and elephants) along with whale watching and some shots of Table Mountain. Not to mention the vineyards in Stellenbosch… or Kruger National Park …. and now I’ve worked myself up again and have to go look at some more pictures.

I leave you with so many links!! This week was one giant overload of gorgeousness.

Have a great weekend

  2. Jess, I’m SO incredibly jealous of your potential trip to South Africa. A friend of mine recently went on Safari there and said that it was absolutely incredible, stunning, fabulous, amazing, exciting, etc. I’ve been wanting to go for about half my life now. Please keep us updated as you finalize your trip!
