As the Carpenters–who continue to be my favourite brother/sister duo–once said, “rainy days and Mondays always get me down”. Especially in December, when stepping outside for more than 5 minutes is a form of self-harm. What makes these days a little more bright is dressing in street swag and some gold jewelry. It doesn’t make too much sense, but strangely enough, my dismal day turned bubbly and beaming. Or maybe it was due to the 4 cups of coffee I just consumed combined with my little boy giggling up a storm. Yea, it’s definitely that; nothing like baby laughs to part the clouds.
