Dawson’s Creek—Arguably the world’s most perfect holiday gift

Not to be all “poor me” but 2011 has been a terrible year for this particular blog writer. I know this might take some of you by surprise because I’m always so charming and witty in my blog posts…you’re welcome…but it’s not always sunshine and unicorns in my world (and if it was I’d be […]
