You know what I remember about taking these photos? How stinking bright it was outside! Major squintfest in the sun, but thankfully we found some shade refuge. And goodness it was delightfully and refreshingly warm. I mean, I was comfortably dressed with bare leggedy legs peeking out and no parka. In January, sheesh. That's because these were taken in Raleigh, NC. Which I quickly came to realize, as anticipated, has a much milder winter climate than good ol Minnesota. So of course I wore a skirt almost every day. Of course!
