an adultnapping

robert and i are leaving in a few hours to take my brother to the carolina mountains. a weekend spent in the heart of the blue ridge, with early morning pancake house visits and late night walks around still, black lakes. of a lykki li and first aid kit concert inside an old, echoing music hall.

i first wanted to title this post "a kidnapping," because that's what we're doing--stealing him away from life for a few days to breath in air that's a little colder, a little more filling.

but the problem is, he's not a kid. before i could gather him in my arms and ask time to slow down, he grew. from riding his skateboard, to driving to applying for college. he leaves this spring. so, adultnapping it is.

on a semi-related note, adult napping is exactly what i want to be doing right now. filling my veins with lots of black coffee after last night's premiere of the latest twilight installment. yes, i hopped on that bandwagon. and yes, i thought this movie was one of the best. chugging through today with the tree-topped peaks soon on the horizon.

I have loved Lykki Li for a long time and have yet to see her in person! Enjoy every second of it. Her 1st album got me through my senior thesis in 2009!

have a fun weekend with your 'baby brother'.

I love that term, adultnapping. I have a hard time seeing my little brother as anything else but a baby. He's 8. A kid, right?

On another note, I am hoping to join the twilight bandwagon soon. very soon, once I finish two research papers.
