Spring Break!

Darlings, forgive me. The last couple of weeks have been crazy for me, studying for midterms, finishing projects, and getting papers in. But now I am finally home on spring break (!) and I'm going to make it up to you, okay? Stay on your toes, swing back in often, and I'll show you just how, exactly.

It feels so great to be home, but at the same time it's bizarre! Waking up this morning, I briefly wondered if I'd never left, and if it was still January. The thing is, time flew by so quickly. And it will continue to do so, as these next two months will be absolutely packed for me. But it's nice to have this bit of rest right now, to see my parents, and to sleep in my own bed. As a bonus, I have time to take pictures and update here!

Tripods make things so much easier. I tried taking outfit photos last week on the balcony with my camera on a chair... maybe I'll show the better ones to you sometime, but it really did not work well. This was quite an adventure, especially taking these ones where I'm next to the tree--I had the camera up on the dock (which is pulled up on shore because the lake is frozen, obviously), so I'd climb up, turn on the self timer, climb back down, and get in position, all in these clunky, hoof-like shoes. It felt like I was in a circus, a little bit!

Again, keep checking back! xoxo.


  1. Love the last two photos! Self times are a little awkward but the photos look great! I love the dress, bubble dresses are awesome.

  2. you're always so cute! I love your color combinations! but someone should let you know hat Spring is when there's NOT snow luv! LOL

  3. The last picture of you is simply charming! Somehow, the word that comes to mind when seeing it is "enchanting". Well, I'm glad you're enjoying your spring break! I am too, but I'll tell you, it will be hard to return to all the work. :P

  4. Veronika - Thank you! It means a lot, coming from you. :)

    Jessica - Aw, thank you! Haha, in Minnesota, there's always snow in the spring. Well into May, usually! We can't all have warm Japan weather, I suppose.

    Hannah - Thank you, doll! That made me smile. & ah, yes, it's always hard to go back, isn't it? I made big plans to get homework done this week, but I'm not sure if it's going to happen, haha!


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
