Cozy Winter Sweater & Yoga Jeans





I (expletive) suck at trying to decipher nonsense words – you know, when you want to comment on blogs, or sign into some websites, or stream illegal videos (what? who?) that annoying dialogue comes up asking you to prove that you’re not a robot.  It often takes me 3+ tries to successfully verify my humanity.  I’m seriously brutal.  Refreshing to “easier” combinations help…sometimes…

White wool coat and skinny yoga jeans




Happy 2013!  I actually took these pics on Dec 31 (outdoor pics becasue it was somewhat mild out – score!), and about 2 shots in, my wireless shutter release started acting funny.  It would only take photos when I held it up chest-height or higher (weird).  That being said, I guess I was due for another release problem. For the time being, since I don’t have a personal photographer (despite dropping hints to Kevin here and there…), a shutter release is a necessary but frustrating evil that dies every 6-10 months (it’s not just the batteries – they’re new).



I decided to take a different approach with the sale listings – there is now a permanent link on the top navigation bar.  The page will be updated periodically.  This saves the sale posts from taking up so much space on the home page.
