    Commonplace 15: Disney Dreams

    When I first saw the headline for this story, I was thrilled for this seemingly normal little girl named Daisy. I am also a huge fan of Belle; She was my all-time favorite princess growing up (Moana and Belle are now tied for my favorite princess). I thought that girl was so lucky to have […]

    Commonplace 13: The Boston Marathon

    The Boston Marathon is a big deal in my family. My dad has attended every year for twenty years. He always stands outside of Marathon Sports, his favorite store, and watches runners cross the finish line. (The only year in twenty years his boss would not let him go was 2013, thank God.)
