This week I’m on a business trip and feeling a little homesick.
This is quite unusual for me as I never get homesick when I travel for work, but here I am pining for my husband and children when there’s an entire city at my disposal. A BIG city. My favorite big city.
It could be that I’ll be missing Janey’s very first “dance recital,” which, in all fairness, is not even a real recital. We signed her up for a summer hip-hop class, half-way through the session, mind you (because I couldn’t get it together in time to figure out there was even summer dance classes available), and they’re having a little performance at the mall on Saturday.
Or it could be that my middle child (@bbbbailey) is sending out tweets like this:
Or maybe it’s Bree texting me every two days asking me to transfer money into her bank account for “gas.” (Maybe not.)
It’s probably just that after finally having my family together for an entire two months, it sucks to be away from them again. Sigh.
I do have some amazing things to tell you, though. Like how I went to Miami Fashion Week last weekend where I went backstage at TIBI whose designer recently collaborated with Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection and designed swim suits inspired by the fragrances (more on that tomorrow!), and how I’ve been previewing some amazing new holiday collections here in New York that I can’t talk about yet but just know that they are blowing me away with their gorgeousness.
Right now I’m trying to wrap things up at work so I can go meet some of my favorite beauty bloggers for drinks. Maybe a glass of wine will help ease my homesickness.
PS– Have I told you lately that I love you?! I’m not even kidding, my friends. I LOVE that you come here to Makeup Bag to see what beauty products I’m using and loving at the moment and, even more, I love that you let me cry on your shoulder at times. You are the best!
Thank you for reading and supporting this website. I truly appreciate each and every one of you!
