The Golden Summer Days

Once upon a time there was a blonde girl with a furry blonde friend.  They took a stroll in a pretty town in CT on a perfect summer day.  In between frolicking around gorgeous Victorian estates and drinking iced chai lattes, she attempted to hold her skirt in place when he dashed after squirrels.  (She also struggled with keeping the poop bag out of pictures.  With those CT taxes, you would think they could invest in more trash bins!)

My name is Melissa and this is my blog.  I’m a 20 year old college student studying economics and math, and this blog will be my outlet when I need a break from numbers and graphs.  I love fashion, decorating, baking, eating, and trying to stay healthy.  Every day I try to be inspired by my pinterest boards and create a little something to appreciate.  I take the motto “stop and smell the roses” quite literally, and I think it’s important to consciously feed your soul with moments that keep you happy. Today I looked up at the sun, put on my brightest yellow outfit, stole my mom’s floppy hat and took my friend Tucker for a walk in town.
