I have been meaning to share these pictures for almost two years now but somehow never got around to it. In August of 2018, David and I took a week long vacation to explore a bit more of the east coast states.

For the most part my fixes have included a piece or two that I’ve ended up keeping, but I’ve never been thrilled with everything in the … Continue reading My Best Stitch Fix Yet
