Embrace the Wrinkle

July 14th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

July 14, 2017 - Kirk looked at me as if I had sprouted three heads and asked "Who are you and what have you done with my wife?" I have a confession to make. I don't iron. Anything. I consciously purchase clothes that don't need ironing or that are meant to look ….. comfortably worn [...]
