continue to update when i can! :)

catching up in my journal, and writing to-do lists in my diary for this week.

august day one

day 1: outside
it's cold and calm :outside: my bedroom window early in the 
morning - a good excuse to stay :indoors: while taking the photo! 

after showing these photos to my family, there were 
different opinions to which one i should use. so i decided 
to post both and ask you which one you like better? :)
