Hey you guys! I’m still here! I’ve been really busy with writing group, book club, finishing up my last class for my Masters, volunteering, and running almost daily. Why am I doing all these things? I… I don’t know. I’m really tired.
A few things that are great about right now:
1. Even when it’s raining it’s not that cold.
2. Everything outside smells really great.
3. I found this awesome store in the mall called Francesca’s Collections and it’s like if you combined Forever 21 and Anthropologie. Beautiful stuff for cheap prices. They do not pay me to say this. I pay them and they give me jewelry and sandals.
