Gosh, it feels like forever since I’ve thought about anything blog-related… it’s just been such an exciting and overwhelming week as I’ve tried to adjust to life across the pond! I arrived in Glasgow, Scotland, on January 5th to start my five-month-long study abroad experience at the University of Glasgow.

Well, it’s been a stressful week of moving, but I couldn’t be more excited to be back home for the summer. The last time I slept in my own bed was the first week of January, which is the longest I’ve ever been away from my house! It feels so good to be back, and I was ecstatic to see our lavender bushes are still in full bloom and buzzing with bees. This is where I took most of my blog photos last year during quarantine, and I loved the purple backdrop. Now, onto this week’s summery looks! Continue reading “Weekly Recap #26, 2021”
