DAY 28 1 SHIRT, 2 SHIRT, ORANGE SHIRT, BLUE SHIRT

I had a little melt down today. I was trying to get dressed. I have two shirts, orange and blue, and two sports bras, orange and blue.

TonightContinue reading “DAY 28 1 SHIRT, 2 SHIRT, ORANGE SHIRT, BLUE SHIRT”

DAY 26 I MET A MAN ALONG THE CAMINO
