(This post was written last December, and has been sitting unpublished. It's about a shirt I made in early 2017, so it's an old post about an old make—meta-blogception! I thought it would be nice to take a trip back in time. Enjoy.)
Winter doesn't ever last very long here. The beginning of 2017 was very, very wet with record rainfall (to grow the kindling that would ignite the current wildfire situation...), and then it got HOT. So when late March rolled around, it was already time for summer clothing.
August used to feel like the death knell of summer. When I was a kid it meant school was around the corner and the days would start getting shorter. But I'm no longer a kid, summer is endless (thank you climate change) and I have been looking forward to the peridot-inspired signature color of the month all year long!
