First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude to all those who gave their "last full measure of devotion" for the freedoms that many take for granted. Despite being a foreign-born American citizen, I have a profound appreciation for those who to this very moment, are willing to sacrifice being with their families, pursuing their dreams and unfortunately even giving up their lives in the service of their country.
In the passing flash that was the transition from spring to summer, there was this cool morning that allowed me to throw on this quilted vest one last time while rocking these New Balances that I got for the dirt. Even though sneakers are not normally my thing, I think I'm going to get a lot of wear out of these. I'm also adding cutoff white denim to the list of items that will likely get heavy rotation this summer, so I'm stocking up on the best fitting, least expensive pairs that I can get my hands on because unfortunately, I also don't do well with keeping white clean.
