It's May, it's May! It's time to get married!

The wedding month has arrived! I know you all have been counting  down the days along with me, right?

This is an illustration of me, (after my shin-elongation surgery and skin grafting to become permanently tan) on my honeymoon. Just kidding. I wouldn't ride a vespa without a helmet.

This isn't any one in particular - it's everyone, anywhere, who ever loved springtime and vespas and mixing high-waisted silk, party pants with vintage scarves and navy and white stripes in the crisp, new sun.

But - to answer your burning question, yes, we are going on a honeymoon! And yes, I hope to channel this fierce vixen's joie de vivre while my new husband and I are galavanting around the island nation of Corsica in our Fiat 500 which we do not yet know how to drive. That's right, in 18 days, my betrothed and I shall set forth for a land in which they do not have automatic transmissions and neither of us can drive stick. Stay tuned for developments on that front.... and Happy May!

You have such a distinctive voice when you write – funny and engaging and I love it. We’re all in this together for your wedding – shit got real when the shoe hunt started. Enjoy Corsica and congratulations in advance on what is sure to be a beautiful wedding!

Have a great honeymoon!!
I did a set long time ago with your illustration, they were on polyvore (did you put there?) and I took them from there. If you don’t like it I could remove it. I send you the links so you can check: http://enarasthings.blogspot.com.es/2011/12/i-would-like-to-be-writer_20.html

I hope that you don’t mind that I published it, there is a link to your page in both.
Have a great time!!
