The One Where He Comes to the States for the First Time

If you read my July Recap post, you’d know that L came to visit me for 3 glorious weeks and we had the best time together! He just left yesterday (heart = broken 😦 ), so in all honesty, I can’t be bothered to write anything. Therefore, please enjoy this photo montage of all our […]
