In The Headlines

I went on a much-needed mission this weekend. Hebron, I (may) love you, but you're bringing me down. Eager to get out of this sleepy town, I took the bus to Boston and spent the weekend with friends hunting for JFK's birthplace, ear gauges, and Turkish nazar bracelets. We munched on amazing pizza, lay on the porch sipping iced coffee, and drove to a park after dark while listening to our favorite songs at full volume. While I am still antsy, the trip was a step in the right direction. Here are the headlines; I'm going to make some pancakes. Enjoy!
