Summer Plans!

I am sorry it’s been so quiet here for the past few days, but now I have more time than ever to work on the blog! I have been in the process of moving back home from school and unpacking, and I let my blogging duties fall a bit to the wayside.

Dear Moms, a letter from an almost grown daughter.

I’ve been stuck in a vicious fashion cycle, and I’m ready to switch things up. After praying for sun to come out and play for weeks, I got lucky with an unusually warm day.
