Romantic (as found on dictionary.com) – of, relating to, or of the nature of romance; characteristic or suggestive of the […]

35 Years

For years I wanted to be older, and now I am. – Margaret Atwood There’s some truth. I remember thinking when I was young(er) about how much I wanted to “grow up” and do all those “adult” things that seemed so fun! I can’t really say if things turned out how I expected, or anticipated, […]
