German Chocolate Cake

The worst thing about becoming older is that the people around you are also becoming older, which means everyone’s life is going in a totally different direction.

I Stand with You

2020 has been the most suffocating year. I am trying to maintain optimism because I have a lot of things to be grateful for, but inside this twisted world, I am struggling to find the light.
