ShareHoliday Dream-Come-True   Ever since I was a little girl, the idea of New York consumed me. “The city that never sleeps“, they called it. How convenient for me! I’ve been a bit of an insomniac my entire life. I always imagined myself living in a little brick apartment and taking taxis to the oh-so-glamorous job I was convinced I would have. Any… Read more →

ShareIt’s 10:52 PM And all I can think about are paint chips…   Maybe because paint chips are the least stressful thing I can think of right now.

Fall as Told by Kaylah

ShareLiving in Florida, the signs of Autumn are scarce— the slight temperature change only trickling into our Sunshine State, leaving us now at a *crisp* 81 degrees. The smell of the Cinnamon Stick branches Publix begins to sell in mid-September, and the discarded ‘pumpkin spice latte’ Starbucks cups littering the ground are redolent of the season change for us.
