It’s Dreamy

Those crazy confectioners at Coca-Cola are at it again with another kooky concoction. You may remember that, earlier this year, Coca-Cola Creations released the Starlight version of Coke, which was reportedly meant to approximate the taste of space. I tried it... But I've never been to space, so I can't attest for what space really … Continue reading It’s Dreamy

Day Six

My 20 Favorite Things I couldn't care less about raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens. No... I can't say that. Kittens are kind of adorable.
