Autumn Anticipation

“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.” William Cullen Bryant By: Gabriela Yareliz It has been a strange season where tension and thick trauma linger in the air like a dense fog.

It’s not all sad and heavy, though. No. We’re going into a more fun territory today. We are looking at No Doubt’s “Hey Baby.” First of all,Continue reading “Sipping on Chamomile”

January: A Full Menu

By: Gabriela Yareliz Today, we have an assortment of thoughts from this month. Here’s the full menu.
