Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Welcome to the first edition of You Got Me Straight Crushin’, Boo.

I thought it was high time to start a new series on this blog– mostly so I could use this photo of Emma looking all hoochie-mama-human on the couch.  Kidding. Kind of. Look at that dog. She’s shameless.
