    May Day

    I am writing this post from outside. I mean. I cannot believe the weather this week! It’s been absolutely gorgeous, and very summery even though I feel like we just started spring!

It’s making me long for summer already, though. Is that bad? I got this jean jacket the other day after seeing a few different lovely bloggers sporting jean jackets, and I’m so glad I did!
