The Absence of Summer 2012

You may (or may not) be wondering why it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. Because we all know (or at least are about to know) that I love writing and blogging and telling/sharing stories. Well, there’s one word that sums up my absence: SUMMER.

Whether there’s a newsboy hat involved or not, there’s just something about the casual yet vintage look that makes this irresistible. Continue reading
