picnic in the park.

Last Thursday I had a taste of sweet freedom (and sweet froyo) and spent an afternoon picnicking at Bicentennial Park with Jack. My parents used to take me there all the time as a kid. It's the most calm and relaxed I've been in months, lying on the grass in the sun, nibbling on cabanossi and cheese and sipping on cider. Wearing my ultimate summer muscle singlet showing a hint of my lacy bra (underwire free is so liberating) and floral embroidered shorts that I ended up keeping from Zara.

I'm longing for the months where my biggest worries are what to wear and how to make the most of my day. I'm about to head into the most difficult part of semester, the end. Plenty of assignments, exams and essays to keep me busy but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel in a little over a month. Until then, please be patient with me. I may have to put the blog on the backburner.

Hope you've all had a smashing long weekworkend. Double time and a half pay!
