Filling the Gaps! (and catching up on my #mmmay15)

Oh the weather was so lovely today!  I just couldn't sit down to post!  🙂  But the sun is fading now so let's talk...

It’s Jungle January!

and I thank you, Pretty Grievances, for hosting this Adventure! Pretty Grievances invites us all to join Jungle January so we can "add animal to our life".  I don't think I have ever worn or even owned any Jungle prints.  I almost thought I wouldn't be able to bag anything before Jungle January was over!  Animal prints are… Continue reading It’s Jungle January!
