I'm loving these posters from student portfolio out of Washington DC. Maybe it's the history geek in me, but I crack up every time I look at these!

. { hazy dreamy day }

These lovely look books from Dace have that hazy and humid summer feel to them, don't they? I don't know about you, but when it's this hot and hazy, I feel like everything just moves slower and more quietly. The weather is supposed to be hot, humid, and lovely for the rest of the week here in Maine. Thank goodness I have a salty and fresh Casco Bay breeze that blows up my street every evening!

I don't know about you, but I'd rather be out playing in a Jeep or riding around on a motorcycle today! The sun keeps calling me from my desk saying "just don't come back from lunch break ..." Somehow I don't think that'd fly. 

On that note, I'll go back to work. 
Enjoy the sun!

{ caffeine addict 101 }

I thought I'd share this with my fellow caffeine freaks. Because I, for one, have a huge caffeine problem! If I don't get my morning coffee, not only am I a total baby and grump, but I'm so tired I can barely make the 19 mile commute to work without cussing out multiple idiot drivers. (It's a real problem). I'm just like my Dad, his Mother, my Sister ...  actually, just count the entire family. We are one giant collection of coffee addicted freaks. 

Loveable freaks? Absolutely. 
Completely dependent on caffeine? Absolutely.

p.s.  I got to spend time with my aforementioned caffeine addicted family at my beautiful Cousin's wedding this past weekend! Hopefully I can get my butt in gear and post something about that soon.

In the meantime... Happy Hump Day!
