Light Posting This Week

Maybe nonexistent, actually. It’s little Jo’s birthday this week, friends are coming in from out of town for a basketball game and I’m going to be the best man at a wedding.

Trust me, you will not feel good about plunking your first $9G bag on an LV Louis Vuitton Purses thing is beautiful. It much wider than the average pashmina, and it lit up my outfit of black empire-waist top and skinny jeans as soon as I wrapped it around my neck.
