from the archives

Between relentless rain and “appropriate moving attire,” my day-to-day look this week isn’t exactly blog worthy (and barely fit for the public, quite frankly). So I’m digging through the backlogs to find shots from sunnier days that, for one reason or another, never made it to posting. It’s a reminder that one day soon I’ll be able to dress myself again without worrying about whether an outfit is suitable for bending and lifting, and that…
