Guest Post: The Reality of Leaving Home by Cassie Mae #Flirt

The first year out on your own sort of kicks you in the butt. I think the best way for me to show this, is by sharing a letter from a freshman friend to another, a few months after moving away. BriAnne! I swear, if I have to eat another box of Suddenly Salad, I’m going to grow into a noodle. Why can’t steak cost sixty-eight cents? I’d call home and beg for money, but I did that yesterday.

Guest Post: Celebrating Summer by Lauren Layne

I’ll be the first to admit that winter my favorite season. People always think I’m joking about this, but I absolutely mean it. I love everything about winter. Sure, it’s cold, dark and often a bit damp. But it’s also the season of cozy sweaters and peppermint mochas and fireplaces. It’s that first snow and that first Christmas carol. It’s blustery evenings where you have nowhere to be, and can curl up with a good book and your favorite fuzzy blanket.
