Today was a very relaxing day, and I was fortunate enough to spend the whole afternoon vintage and thrift shopping. I picked up the bracelet pictured above in a little jewelry shop on the main road in my town, and I found a couple of tops at the Salvation Army. When I got home, my mom taught me how to hem. I purchased a lovely little red and white gingham dress that really need shortening at a thrift shop awhile back, and she showed me how to do it. I'm going to try hemming a skirt soon and see just how much I learned today. Hemming seems to take quite a bit of patience, which I do not have all of the time.
Tonight my family (my mom, dad, brother, and I) had a family dinner and went for a boat ride. My brother practiced driving the boat, and it was really nice to see him. He's twenty-two and has an apartment in town, but I hardly ever see him. He'll be a senior in college next year studying English, and it'll be interesting to see what he ends up doing when he graduates.
