I’M NOT FREAKING OUT.

I guess this irons out the wrinkles from our first encounter when he didn’t acknowledge my existence.

In other exciting news, I am off to the Midwest today for my baby cousin’s Baptism! I’ll be sure to update you all on the hip happenings as I roll through fields of corn experience that Midwest charm.

We’ll actually be traveling every weekend for the rest of August until I move back to Boston. Many family visits and celebrations to come!

When Daliza was over at my house last week, she offered an age-old question: What would your last meal be?

Then I countered with the age-old response: Don’t make me choose!

So she graciously allowed me to share what I would eat on my last day of life. I didn’t answer on the spot, but we agreed that I should write a blog post about it. Here’s what I came up with. It was mighty difficult to narrow it down, because if you didn’t notice, I like a lot of foods.
