Normal
I'm eating a chia squeeze and talking to my good friend Liana Fricker about the difference between baby boys and girls. Mine scream - hers hurl raw potatoes at each other in the kitchen. Holy Moly.
By the way ....... we made these super cool oxidized pumpkins today. Annnnddd these flowers are going on Day 8! They remind me of Tuck Everlasting. Did you read that book? #hellyeah
