I still don't quite feel rested. So, I think this post will be heavy on the photos and a bit light on the words. The last two months have been so incredibly busy and stressful and SO worth it, I'm still recovering. And now preparing for Hawaii! I don't think I've said anything about it here, but Eric's parents are taking us and his sister to Kauai for 12 days. We leave next Tuesday. Crazy, right? I still haven't made a list yet and I'm getting a little worried. All will be ok. I will be swimming with dolphins and sea turtles soon. That sounds fake, like a movie or a dream. Unbelievable...

Anyway, I think I'll just recap the last week day by day. I want to share everything, of course.

Last Wednesday, the 12th, was orientation day at my new internship. I'll be working under the Collections Manager, Megan, at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House. I can't wait! As far as I can tell, Joe and I (a fellow fiber student) will be actually working with the objects and artifacts and art themselves. Wow. Dream job, right? Well, for me anyway. Tomorrow is my first real day. I can't wait.

the solarium

a little grove. they're everywhere. the grounds are so gorgeous.

Wednesday was also the day I finished installing my thesis show. Yay! Well, first I finished it, then I had to take them down and paint the hangers white (with very generous help) and then reinstall it. It was quick-ish... I only have photos of the black hangers right now, I haven't done my official photo shoot yet.

my white bleeding heart came back this year. she is so happy! i brought a nice little set of hearts with me to keep the room cheery on the gray, rainy days.

I'm really happy with them.
