Trips down Memory Lane...

...have a pretty cheap fare.

That's their biggest perk.
The list over the finalists in the Nook's DT-call is up now.
(It's not 100% done, but it's getting there.)
I am so amazingly impressed with all the talent showcased on it, and of course, I'm extra happy for my friends who made it onto it!
My fingers are neatly and thoroughly crossed!

For me, it's time to step down from the Nook. :(
I didn't apply for the upcoming semester. Not because I am not happy with the spot (because there's no way I could BE any happier!) but because I think it's time for them to get rid of me, and get some fresh new blood into the DT.
Luckily, I won't "just be an alumni", but I have also gotten the go-ahead to stay on as a newsletter-writer, which means I can ease my withdrawals by still swooshing around in the DT-forum, being a nusance... eh... I mean... To keep the girls in check. ;)

...but it's not without regrets, I'm stepping down. That old "did I just mess up badly-feeling" nags at me, I admit it. It's hard to leave a spot you've loved so much, even if you know it's for their best that you're resigning.
Such a Bitter sweet symphony... ;)

Here's an LO with double beauty. Not "only" is it the gorgeous August kit from the Nook, but it's also got the world's most amazingly beautiful ♥Anna:
