The new Sailor Pirate’s Life 1911L and 1911S are here! I am so here for this edition. I’ve noncommittally declared myself a gold-trim-only person in life, and this one is perfect. This is another North American special edition, so we’ll have them while we have them. What a beauty! This colour is fall and golden and warm and everything I need right now.
Naomi has started preschool, and Caleb is about to start his school soon enough. I’m slowly mentally preparing myself for this new season of life, wallowing in the usual existential despair, all the flavours of a pandemic and empty nesting and imminent winter creating a delicious stew. I watched the Raptors in double overtime in their Game 6 and I thought I was going to have a hernia. Life swings wild.
But while I have Caleb, I have roped him into helping me fill my new pen. He arrived to his bat signal shirtless, cape on, and some sort of illustrated paper emblem taped to his chest, but I convinced him to get dressed.
These beauties! Nothing like having a new and bright pen in your pen roll.
