Put me with piles of summer work, my devilish little brother, a slight shortage of sleep due to late-night quartet rehearsal, college destinations eight hours away, and you get the above photo. I was more than ecstatic to leap out of the car after hours of being cramped in the backseat with my fellow restless companion. Of course, then a few nearby trees caught my eye and I proceeded to whip out my camera and creepily snap countless shots of their flowers by the hotel entrance.
The golden sunset struck my fancy as well, so I dragged my brother to do an impromptu photoshoot. And this was all right by the hotel before we saw any colleges! I think I may have a problem...

One funny thing I noticed at breakfast was that both mornings there was half a chocolate doughnut, cut neatly down the middle, among its other whole companions.
Hmmm, how strange, I thought. What kind of person was able to control the desire to simply gobble the entire thing up?
I came up with a plethora of theories as I pondered over my oatmeal. The simple solution would be that it was a person on a diet who couldn't resist just a few bites of the tantalizing treat. But I wanted to know more.
It's a man, I decided as I stirred my coffee. And he must be alone, otherwise he would've offered the other half to whoever was with him...maybe...he lost his wife in a tragic accident ten years ago. The couple was deeply in love, so in a tribute to her memory, he returns to the same hotel where they stayed each year for vacation. And at breakfast each morning, he has only half a chocolate doughnut because she always had the other half!
It was a rather cliche and bittersweet story, but I was satisfied.
But speaking of Peter Pan, could I just draw your attention to this exquisite necklace? eFoxcity has some of the cutest jewelry I've ever seen, so when their package arrived in the mail with this cute one, I fell in love. I think I'm developing a slight obsession with peter pan collars, so it's a rather good thing that their website has many other peter pan collar options (: They mostly feature some of trendiest and of-moment drop ship clothing, formal dresses (since it's wedding season we can't forget their wedding dresses under $100!), and gorgeous jewelry like poodle rings, mustache necklaces, and peter pan collars. You'll be seeing this one very often haha. But seriously, go take a look at their trendy and affordable jewelry!
