My Week In Photos: April 21 – April 27
My friends were excessively awesome this week. But it was also my birthday, complete with a Totoro brownie cake, a surprise party, a star fruit and many many many adorable babies.

Ever since the beach I’ve been slowly peeling. It started on my chest, then my arms…and then my legs. Gahhhh.

I’m taking an online course on HTML/CSS just so I can build my skill set and learn something new. It’s…been a challenge to keep up with coursework online.

Much love friends.
