Today is more of a personal post friends. I’ve been quiet here over the break, sharing updates mostly on Instagram, which you might have caught.

Uh, oh. I’ve gone and done it again! We’re one week away from leaving for the South of France for the winter holidays and despite all of my best intentions this year (like making a list of everyone I have to buy a present for way back in November) I have managed to only find […]
