…with Cheerios that is. Probably not the lyrics The Cure had in mind.
When I was little, I hated cashews. Hated the flavor, the texture, everything. Peanuts were my nut of choice. My mom used to buy bags of cashews and shelled peanuts for our camping trips when I was a kid and I made a face whenever she pulled out the cashews. As an adult though, I […]
I don’t think any of us were in doubt that eventually the day would come when Blake would move away. You’re in a long distance relationship, you decide to look for jobs and eventually the right one comes along.

So we did it! After our last trial, we received some helpful comments and suggestions that led us to believe we weren’t going as full-force with our technique as we could go.
