The bags are packed. The passport has been dusted off. Two knitting projects are ready for my carry-on. And, in the swirl of pre-vacation check-lists and anxiety dreams (in which we miss multiple flights because we just can’t say “no” to that last minute massage – how’s that for yin-yang craziness?) I volunteered to play a model for a magazine photo shoot last week.
Volunteer? Well, sure. Number one, who would pay? Number two, there was the promise of free food prepared by one of the top chefs in the entire country, an outdoor picnic setting set-up by Anthropologie and the chance to wear my newest summer frock for the very first time.
It was also the absolute hottest, most humid day of the season. At the end, though, we were treated to some luscious paletas. I was only half-done with my mango paleta when the photographer decided he needed just a couple more shots.
Drop the paleta? Not likely.
