Spring Break Season

CA Spring Break



I have to admit, I miss the college days. Sleeping in, fraternity parties, Greek Week (go Delta Zeta!), and spring break! A week of doing whatever I wanted. Being a Southern California girl, the beaches are plentiful and close by. If I were still in school I'd be hang out by the ocean and relaxing. Doesn't that sound perfect? I could definitely go for that right now. Why exactly don't we get a spring break from work?

Whether you get to enjoy spring break or not, I have something to make yours a little brighter - a giveaway from The Altered Chain! Earlier this week I blogged about the greatness that is this affordable jewelry shop and many of you expressed your love for the Gold Branch Ring.
