+ Marilyn Monroe moment

Was it just me or was today super windy/rainy/crappy outside?! Hence the almost everything reveled pictures below. I seriously had to stop and look around and make sure no one just saw my under roes. My mom is going to hate this post because it looks like a miniskirt….I swear mom, it was very windy….it is NOT A MINISKIRT. So in the original photo I took it in a tiny bit, but decided to change it completely up. So, I took 5 inches out from the sides and cropped it and I LOVE it to death. It goes with everything. And what…$3? Awesome. Tutorial here.
Anyway…a little update about Danny…he has mentally and physically recovered from exhaustion, nausea, and dehydration and now all I want to do it smother him to death. I was clingy before, and now I’m VERY clingy. Poor Danny. 
Thanks for all the kind comments….you guys are seriously so sweet and comforting. I love you guys!
