I have been so overwhelmed trying to edit all of my VLV 16 photos and try to get them posted; please pardon my tardiness just a little longer.
In the meantime, I wanted to do a very short outfit / weekend post. Sunday held the hat-required-birthday party of a dear friend and cohort, Mr. T-Burd (featured below on the left with the ever dapper Mo).
My boyfriend and I decided to bike over to the festivities as it was so nice (64 degrees Fahrenheit/17.7 degrees Celsius) and sunny outside for the first time in weeks.
During our ride over to T-Burd's house, an older gentleman pulled up beside me and told me that "Everyone should look just like you when the bicycle." Such a sweet thing to say; it definitely made me smile.
The party was wonderful and I got to dance for the first time since VLV.
