20 Times I Loved As A 22-Year Old

Tomorrow’s my birthday. If I have the energy I might make a carrot cake or a flourless chocolate cake. More likely I’ll yelp a bakery where they sell gluten-free cupcakes and call it a day. Here are 20 times I’ll miss from being 22, but I know there are 40 more waiting for me at…

Scenes From Easter Weekend

‘Tis the season… …Now let me at that discounted candy.
