The moving in nesting bug

So my fiance is moving in to my apartment this weekend. It’s a very momentous occasion of course. I’m beginning to wonder though, is it possible to go into nesting mode without being pregnant?

When you’re not Christian enough in their eyes.

Religion. It’s an amazingly powerful word, full of emotion. Wars have been fought and won over it. Relationships have ended and started because of it.

My crazy nights out were being swapped for early bed times and rested mornings. The filters by which […]

Teenage angst & young love…the stuff of classic movies.
