Another Tumblr Tuesday Deviation
This whole idea of doing Tumblr Tuesday posts is proving inconsistent with me lately. Besides my love for alliteration, the concept was to have an easy opportunity for a “frilly” midweek post by pulling together the week’s pictures from my boZannical Tumblr photoblog, but it seems like pretty much every weekday morning has been consumed by homework this semester.
So, I’ve been building up a mass of pix on the Tumblr and need to just pull some shots together whenever I can get to it. Take today, for example. 🙂 Click a pic and scroll on through!
