Cute Couple

I know, I know, I am shamefully hiding my face right now. I'm so sorry I haven't posted in forever. Guilty party, anyone? I have been so busy that I usually think about posting right before I fall asleep (in the middle of homework, I might add). This semester handed me a huge workload in the form of reading. I pretty much read about 1-2 books a week, and write about 6-8 pages of work a week as well. Exhausting, but mostly in a good way. I am learning tons. Right now for my Women's lit class I am reading the memoir Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi. I would recommend it to anyone. It's a true story about the author forming a private book club (of sorts) with seven girls who are living under the suppressive social conditions in Iran. It really looks at the power and message behind literature.
.
So, although I have been negligent in the past, I am committing myself to a week straight of posts to get me back on track. (If there is anyone still around to read them :)
.
Today I wanted to share some pics I had from Teen Vogue's February shoot in 2008. I love the quirkiness in the whole thing. They are lovely. Here are some of my favorites:

Aren't these adorable? I love the one with the yellow jacket and the other picture with the blue umbrella.

I'll be back for more tomorrow. Until next time...
