The most awesome black and white photos I’ve come across, these rare photos show a different side of some pretty famous people, and as the site says: they “capture the essence of eras that have come and gone.” Which, if you think about it, is the best part about black and white photos.
PS: Happy Fourth of July!

It’s kind of hard to believe that come this fall, I will have graduated college four years ago. Part of me feels like it only just happened yesterday: I was spending my morning in class, and my afternoons and weekends walking dogs.
Last week I read this article in The New York Times that highlighted college kids during their first week in school, and then followed up with them two semesters later.
It’s cheesy to say of course, but college can be such a transformative time in your life. You’re learning how to be on your own and you’re making your own decisions for the first time. It was fun reading that others feel the same way.

I’m back with a black and white Friday post! A while back my uncle sent me this photo collage from the Chicago Tribune about “a good girl gone bad.” It’s the story of Wanda Stopa, a young Polish woman who was Chicago’s first woman assistant U.S. district attorney. Unfortunately that was short lived when she killed her lover’s gardener, and then committed suicide. It’s a tragic story, but worth a peek if you like reading sordid stories from the past (and really, who doesn’t?).

This morning Josh and I are headed out to Phoenix for a wedding. We haven’t traveled in a long time and this wedding is between two close friends so we’re looking forward to making a trip out of it. Even though we were in Phoenix two years ago, we’re excited to see some new sights. See you next week!
