nine days | july...

its hard to fathom that we are well and truly into 2013. the months are flying by at a too rapid pace. july was one of the quickest months of the year so far, it came and went at a blink of an eye. looking back, i see i crammed quite a bit in the 31 days. so this month its another double nine days...


1. my annual leave was coming to an end. spending the last days around home, enjoying the beautiful sunlight. [33]
