Doors & Canals2:00 PM
A few Sundays ago, Kyle and I were driving around after getting coffee with Kyle's brother Chris, and his wife Michelle. We ended up in Grosse Point, and after stopping in the Barnes & Noble for a book for Kyle, we headed out for a place to take outfit pics. We wandered through Grosse Point Park, and headed back into Detroit. We came across a bridge that looked cool, and when Kyle went to pull over, we parked by this house. The entire fence was made out of old, some vintage, doors! When we got out of the car, some people who were walking by asked if we lived there, I wish! When we walked around to the little bridge, we realized that it was over one of the canals that lead up to the Detroit river. Imagine coming out of your house, and at the end of your backyard was a little dock on a canal. There were a bunch of guys out on a little boat, sitting around, having some beers on this Sunday, and it just seemed very relaxing.
Of course it was windy as hell, so my outfit pics are a little crazy, but I still liked how they came out. It was a little awkward when a couple of guys came up on their bikes to take pics of the door-fence. I hate taking pics when people are around, I get all sheepish. They were nice though, and said "hi" to us.
When we were leaving. the lady who lives next door to the house came out and asked if we had taken any good pics. We mentioned that we thought the doors were cool, and she just laughed and said "Well, that is one way to save on a fence!". Now Kyle wants to do this to our house. I honestly would not complain, anything is better than the ragged, crappy fence that we have currently.
I just picked up this cardigan for $9 at Forever 21, and I really love it! I think I need to go thrifting for some thicker, warmer sweaters though. These thin cardigans are cute for layering, but it is supposed to get cold this weekend. Speaking of, I am working a half day on Saturday. I don't really want to, but the overtime will be nice, as it looks like Kyle's car is dying. Ugh, adult things. Such bullshit. I do love having the office to myself though! I have been alone all week, and have finally been able to catch up on some things that I have been neglecting, An entire office to myself for a week? An introvert's dream!
