love is a many-splendoured thing.









"I love you" in British Sign Language :)

It was very muddy out today!





jumper - thrifted // collared shirtdress - thrifted // tights - Target // shoes - Kohl's // 
necklace - vintage (from Grandmama)

Today I wore green and black, as only the truest fans of Valentine's Day do.  Or at least, that's my excuse.  I actually had to be reminded this morning of the fact that it was Valentine's Day, so I guess that tells you something.


It isn't that I have anything in particular against the holiday or those who celebrate it: I don't feel bitter or anything toward happy couples, because I'm single and happy and don't have the slightest interest in a relationship at the moment.  I do have to scoff a little at the blatant commercialism, because what else is a cynic like me supposed to do?  But on the whole, my feelings toward Valentine's Day are pretty much of the apathetic variety.


So the trees were my valentines today.


A lovely unwritten essay is sitting a couple windows behind the internet on my laptop right now, lurking in wait.  "I know you want to go to bed as soon as possible tonight," it whispers. "But I need some attention, and I'm going to bug you and make you feel guilty until you write me, and even then you won't  be satisfied.  So get working!"  I guess that can mean one of two things: I need to get to work on this paper to shut it up, or... I've reached the hallucinatory stage of sleep deprivation.

    1. Thank you so much, Katherine! I totally agree - if we don't get school and work off, what's the point of a holiday? Haha :)
