Happy summer!

I leave town for the summer in 4 days, and today I officially entered Panic Mode. I've been an errand-running, spreadsheet-making, house-organizing fool, trying to get everything done before I leave on Tuesday. Where am I going? Well, first I'm spending a month in St. Louis (I've never been—what's fun there?). I fly home the morning after the show opens and spend exactly EIGHT HOURS in Houston before getting on a plane to London. I'll spend a month at Glyndebourne (oh god, I'm so excited), and then CM and I will travel through Europe for another month after that (nothing's set in stone yet, but tentatively: Vienna, Tuscany, Aix-en-Provence, Munich, Bayreuth, Paris). It's all very exciting, but it sure makes for one hell of a To Do list.

Life is good, and full, and changing all the time. And I'm increasingly unsure of where this blog fits in. Used to be, if I spent the night in the penthouse suite of a swanky Manhattan hotel, or sat behind Anna Wintour at an event, say, or caught up with a dear friend I haven't seen in years, or got great news on the job front, I'd be dying to write about it here, to share it with you lovely people. I'm not sure why, but I no longer have that instinct.

So I'm signing off for the summer, at least I think I am. I'm taking time to regroup, to rethink my "extracurricular" activities, to focus on work and love and friendship. I'm not planning to spend much time on the internet, and I'm looking forward to seeing what I discover in the "real" world. Maybe I'll be back here in August, refreshed and re-inspired. Maybe I'll be off on a new adventure. I'll let you know.

I hope your summer is full of sunshine, and laughter, and truly free time.

xoxo LMB
