DARKNESS.

So, occasionally over these past few months, I have had these mega weird allergic reactions in my eyes. Out of nowhere, my eyes will begin to swell to the point where my face is unrecognizable.

BEHOLD MY SERVANT.

Most every morning, I have a routine. I roll around in my bed for a while, slowly open my eyes, and then stumble to the kitchen to turn the Keurig on. After attempting to put in my contacts and retrieving my warm mug of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Coffee, I snuggle back up in my bed […]
