These amazing earrings are made by Polish artist Olga C., who I picked today in honor of my little brother, who is in Poland right now on a study abroad semester. Aren’t they incredible? Check out her shop, it’s one stunning piece after another.

My little bro just sent me a funny story about his trip, which I’m going to share with you (whether you like it or not!). A friend of his got tickets to see a USA vs. Poland soccer match (that’s football, to the rest of the world) in Krakow last week. They decided to go all-out, and dress up in red, white and blue and bring a huge American flag. But, to their surprise, they were the only five Americans there in a stadium full of thousands of Poles. But they did their best to represent and cheer for our team (who actually won!), and everyone thought they were pretty funny. So much so, in fact, that they caught the eye of the local news media and my brother wound up both on television and on the sports section of the major Krakow newspaper!!

You can watch the video of the game with a cutaway of him and his friends cheering (he’s on the left, wearing a hat).

I’m so happy he’s safe and well and having fun. And this year he officially can say he’s been to more continents then me. Damn.
