Girl Crush: Caroline the Collage Artist

While riding on a brilliant butterfly across the sky, I hop on a rainbow and slide down to a pastel-colored cloud filled with flowers.

Hamstrings Can Be Hot

“She has my dress!” I exclaimed as I stared down the bleachers at my Homecoming Dance crowning ceremony junior year of high school. She would.
