If you like it, save it!

Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place.

Got it!

If you like something…

Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like.

Got it!

Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 


Nilla wafers are
Superior to all snacks
It's a proven fact. 


10:30 AM,
Time for lunch. The whole place smelled
Like ripened string cheese.

Are you inspired to write a poem about going back to school? The comments below are a safe space to express yourself.

Indian summer
In the moment deja vu
When is winter break?

Lucky Charms stashed in
Plastic bag. Thank God for my
Zip-off cargo pants

Back-to-school shopping
Meant new Lisa Frank folders
And scented markers.

I would take the tests
And rewrite all the essays
To do it again.

Remember college?
Feels like many years ago.
We are getting old.

That was a sad one.
Here's something to cheer you up:
Power of the pause.

UT years a blur
I feel bad about my neck
The next phase of old

One room, two Sarahs
Three years we lived together

Sad sad sad sad sad
