it's wednesday, right!? this week is going by quickly and slowly all at the same time...how does that happen? clearly we've both going casual casual this week and we're just fine with that. on our blogging hiatus we discovered the wonders of not putting on make-up everyday and it might take us a little time to get back into the full swing of things. patience?

and we're back again today . . .  can you believe it? we hardly can so we wouldn't be surprised if you doubted us too! today we're sharing with a you simple summer look- it's not our most profound fashion work but hey we're just getting back into the swing of things so cut us a break; without further ado we'll let cake's look take it away & happy tuesday.

summer 2014. cake & valley.

it already feels like summer is over and it's not even the middle of august yet . . . why is that? maybe it's because we blissfully spent the last few months traveling around the midwest together, countless walks on the beaches of lake michigan happened, hours spent eating at the family dinner table together, and lots of warm evenings watching little georgi giggle until she got so excited she cried are all over.  we're now slowly working our way back into our fall schedules. valley's gearing up for her busy travel season & the academic school year is kicking off and cake is settling in for soccer season, early bedtimes with a five month old and trying to figure out what's next. oh boy . . .  life just keeps chugging forward but before we let go of the summer's warm haze we'd like to share a few snippets of our summer 2014.

maybe we can squeeze a few more weeks out of summer . . . .
and it feels great to be back in great wide world of blogging.
see ya tomorrow.

loved this shirt from the minute we saw it- basically it says cake & valley just minus the -ke & -lley! HA! it's also going to be perfect from spring into summer, just imagine it over a great swimsuit or paired with white linen pants & a panama hat! sigh- when is the warm weather going to be here for good?
