4: taylor came to visit me in austin to enjoy a lovely weekend together.

after spending four weeks in texas, i am back in tennessee until the wedding next month. this weekend i am also going to be doing a lot of updating on here. over this break, i realized that there is another blog by the name of oh lovely day. while we have different types of blogs, i thought it would still be a nice time to change things up around here and start this new chapter of life with a new name, lovely lost things. it actually simplifies things for me, too(:
i look forward to getting back into the swing of things around here and will be back with more updates soon(:
