The things my future daughter should have complete, unwavering belief in

I feel I should really start by clarifying that hi, not pregnant, not referring to a daughter I just happen to have on the way.

Instagram is making me hate perfectly nice things and it’s pathetic

I went for lunch with a friend the other day. After we’d caught up on the important things – her recent trip to NYC, what we wanted to eat, which of the middle aged men in the office was being most of a displeasure to work with that day – we moved on to more… Continue reading Instagram is making me hate perfectly nice things and it’s pathetic
