Fun {living outside the stacks} 2
There it is. The month of May in pictures. One of my goals for this year is to document more of my every day life. Not that it’s all that interesting, fun, or exciting. I just want photographic evidence of the day~to~day. I’m using the prompts from the bethadilly challenge to […]
