...better late than never?

so, any of you students out there know how busy life can get, especially in your senior year, and especially if you are an elementary education major. i will therefore stop whining and let it go at that, if you promise to cut me some MAJOR blogging slack these next few weeks (months?)...ok??


New York City!!!
(part 1 - buildings)

(^dad and our broker "Z"...they quickly became best friends)

 (aren't they cute together??)

i simply adore the NYC architecture - the size of these buildings fills me with awe. they are just so very tall!

more coming later...

hi sweet friends!!

i am writing to you from my apartment back at school, sitting in my room while my wonderful friend and roommate unpacks the rest of her's a slow process :)
we are getting all settled in and slowly making the place look as cute as it possibly can (anyone who's lived in a dorm or school-owned apartment knows what i'm sayin').
it's coming together here and there, but it's still mostly empty since we have no furniture yet, besides our beds, dressers, and desks that come with the apartment.
thankfully our parents are coming this weekend with our furniture and any miscellaneous items we left behind! 
pictures will come, don't worry (along with NYC pictures...seriously life has been crazy!), but not until it's complete!
until then, i thought i'd share some links that made me happy today :)
enjoy, and i will be back as soon as i can!
