These photos, the best of a bad bunch, just barely conceal the multitude of sins of my recent existence. Apart from the fact that I was cold (we've had good weather in the UK, but Yorkshire always does have that icy blast of wind) and tired from being out all day, I've been on a three week long bender with my family. Every time we get together, I eat too much, drink far too much, and don't sleep enough, and I've often noticed that I look about five years older by the end of a family vacation than I did before, with a pinched, dehydrated face. I think it just shows that we actually enjoy each other's company and just want to party all the time... but there is always that scary point when you find yourself seriously thinking that the last vegetable you ate may have been a week ago. If I were really a canary, rather than just canary-legged, I would have long since died down this mineshaft!

That pin is so cute!! And yea, it's good that you're able to totally let go and enjoy yourself with your family, but it does take a toll, ha ha. I have to make sure I pay attention to that too and try to at least eat one veggie a week when I'm NOT with my family ;)

This sounds kinda like my family, too, although when my one auntie comes to visit she makes sure there are lots of veggies ;)

Still in love with that blouse!

Well first off you look lovely though I totally get that overindulgent aspect when around family. My mother will always cook a huge amount of tasty foods and it always seems to keep coming. Such is life. :)

so funny. my whole family are general teetotalers, although my mom recently has taken to happy hours w/ a singles group to our hassling for years haha but anyway, partying w/ my family isnt something i can imagine in the least. I hope mine (far) future family will be as close as yours, really lovely to see! oh and your otufit w/ the tights is super cute : )
