Sunday

I am all moved in!

WOAH. I am not used to living an urban town such as Champaign-Urbana.. Everything is so alive and busy at what seems to be all hours of the day. The traffic is ridiculous and everything is expensive. Despite me being completely lost, my friend Lindsey (who used to live here) showed me around Urbana where we could get some sushi and frozen yogurt.
Meet Axel, my room mate's cat! This is him on my window ledge :)
I am currently sitting across the street at my apartment at this litte cafe called Cafe Paradiso. Hope you have a lovely week!
love, polly

Frozen yogurt and sushi does sound like a weird combo-- but I'm now craving yogurt, garnished with kiwi and shaved coconut and drizzled with pineapple sauce. I need a joint like that on my side of town!

And how adorable is that detachable collar?!

Sure, I wouldn't mind adding on FB.
The kitty is so cute! I adore cats. (but mine's not feeling too well, so I'm staying up to keep an eye on her).
Thank you for the very nice comment. Lapsung Souchong is a type of black tea, its really smoky and different from almost any other type I can think of.

Ooooh your new life sounds so cute and fun. I am really envious about your sewing machine though. I was looking into buying one. And my budget is less than 200. Would you have any suggestions??

Don;t forget to share your projects with us.

Love
