I'm a California girl through-and-through and summer is my favorite season. I've love long days spent outside playing in the sun, wearing nothing more than a bathing suit. My childhood summers were spent at the pool or the beach morning till evening, with crunchy, sun-bleached hair and stark tan lines. As an adult, this carefree time in the sun is reserved to weekends and vacations, making the transition to Monday especially hard. I decided to start this Monday by creating a collage to keep the feeling of summer with me just a little longer as I jump into the work week.
